2010 book 87

Carol Goodman's Arcadia Falls
After her husband's untimely death, a woman and her teenage daughter move to a small town in upstate New York where she can teach at an exclusive arts-relate high school. But soon after her arrival, a student dies, and the woman gets involved in unraveling the mysteries behind the death of one of the school's founders in the 1940s. Anyway, this book starts off strong (despite an unnecessary romantic subplot), with storylines about fairy tales and artists and writers and lovers, but the end's twists are way too easy to guess, and the end itself is entirely overwrought.
