Lessons in Love by Charlie Cochrane


Review by Laurie Rae Rezanoff

Set in St. Bride's College, Cambridge England, in 1905, a pair of male teachers find themselves seconded by the police to be the eyes and ears within the college to, hopefully, lure out the person responsible for murdering several male students.

Jonty Stewart and Orlando Coppersmith become smitten with one another in the course of the investigation, and must hide their true relationship from the rest of the college, as well as the murderer. It turns out that all the victims have the same thing in common - loving men.

This quick novel reads well, and shows the deep affection some men have for one another, as well as the hatred others have of them.
