Jil Kidd is a private investigator hired by the head of St. Marguerite’s Catholic School on the outskirts of Ontario to investigate uncatholic behavior by the school staff. She was hired find if the teachers and administrators of the school are violating their Catholic morality contract. Jil basically has no desire to take this case, but her firm has fallen on hard times and this is a good paycheck.
Jess Blake is the smart, sexy principal of St. Marguerite’s. She is relatively new to the job, and does not want to let her students or staff down. Jess is also a closeted lesbian, who is torn between her job and her emotional desires.
The heart of the book is wrapped up in a mystery of why there has been a rash of teen suicides on or near campus since the 1970’s. While Jil was sent there to investigate the staff’s “Catholicness”, she really ends up investigating these deaths. Her gut tells her that something is not right, and works diligently putting the pieces together. With the help of Jess and a few others she begins to unravel this twisted story. Of course Jil and Jess are extremely attracted to each other, and that creates an interesting dynamic to the book.
Overall, I found the story very well written with good pacing, and a nice way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon.
Jessica has been in a relationship with a woman before and has had her heart broken, now she’s married to a guy who's in a coma but that does not stop her feelings for Julia AKA Jil. When she finds out who Julia really is of course it hurts, it hurts even worse when she realizes Julia was investigating her. Uncatholic conduct, pretty much goes towards more than half the teachers at the school who all love their jobs. Gay kids dying, having graffiti around the schools, threats and shootings is not what Jessica signed up for and she will protect her school and students no matter the cost.
Uncatholic conduct is the name of the book and it works out really well. The theme focuses on the issues and I can say without a doubt that the author did a really good job.

I can think of nothing bad to write about this book. It was so cleverly constructed that I could not work out who the bad guys were at all which is the whole point of a well crafted mystery story. There is plenty in the blurb about the story-line – PI Jill has to go undercover in a Catholic school and report on the goings on of the staff. I won’t say any more as it is annoying when reviewers say too much and destroy the story for prospective readers. The characters themselves were so well described and so interesting that they deserve to have more written about them – a prequel perhaps, and definitely a sequel. And Stevies’s Nancy should read it and not be embarrassed as the love scenes were all quite beautiful..
