It was still too early for the antique picker to be back at Trixie’s. ng a concrete floor, and a string of profanities. Tension settled into the back of her neck like a fifty-pound bag of kitty litter. Reluctantly, Skye looked across the alley. She had seen her dad’s pickup parked in the garage’s driveway when she arrived, but had ignored what the truck’s presence meant. Skye slowly got up and walked toward the swearing.

Without a doubt, she had plenty of work waiting to get done - her appointment book should have a warning label on its cover stating DATES ON CALENDAR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR- just nothing she felt able to undertake with everything that was already occupying her thoughts. Too bad there was no one around to talk to.

Hamilton had good recommendations from other Scumble River citizens who had hired him, so why is his work so gosh-darned bad?

Another fun read. Skye discovers the wounded body of her contractor in a boat docked at the back of her property. After a tense time getting the boat and the victim to shore, the contractor dies. Again she is at the scene of a murder. She is still battling her inner feelings for Wally - who has really stepped up the dating pressures - and Simon - who won't explain why he didn't tell her that Spike is a female. Skye and Trixxie go looking for the real murder to get the suspicion off of Skye.

I've loved all of the books in the series so far. The only reason I rated the book four stars is because Skye's constant need for total independence and never wanting to have to depend on anyone for anything is getting a little annoying. Since this is only the seventh book out of sixteen (so far), I'm sure I'll be reading more of it, but it's only a minor annoyance in a great series.

Another Scumble River great book. The plot was really good the murder plot had turns and twists that made you put your thinking cap
on to come up with the guilty one in this. Great novel Ms.Swanson

As always a nice cozy mystery to get me going while I clean house or cook. I listen to the audio version and it feels like an old friend when Christine Leto begins reading. Love this whole series.

This is what I consider a bridge book, not a complete entity unto itself, just a link from the previous book to the future one. Most of the elements in the story were left in limbo with no feeling of closure and the characters were not really fleshed out this time. Sort of a ghost of a story.

I LOVED HOW THE AUTHOR IS DEVELOPING THE LOVE STORY BETWEEN WALLY AND SKYE. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SERIES AND I LOVE THE DIRECTION SHE IS GOING WITH IT.

Here's another fun and witty little lite cozy murder mystery featuring Skye Dennison and her friends and family. This time, our hapless heroine Skye is having problems, big bad problems, with the contractor she hired to renovate and repair the house she inherited in the last installment. And then he winds up dead. Now what to do?

Author Denise Swanson, herself a School Psychologist in Illinois, was paying attention in writing class when the teacher told them to "Write what you know!" The results work. The reader need not read all the books in this series in order - Swanson artfully gives new readers the background and returning readers a refresher course - but why miss all the fun back down on the farm? The plot and pace are perky. The style's bright and breezy.
In my review of the previous book, I warned you to "expect a `What's it gonna be? Him or Me?'" in this book and, as foretold, Skye's dilemma is Now. Because the fictional Scumble River is close to very, often too, real Chicago, I urge all readers of this series to do what old (not Richie! I mean "King") Mayor Richard J. Daley The First would urge you to do:
Vote early!
Vote often!
for Wally (as long as he, too, doesn't have a crazier-than-bat-guano Momma)
right here. Tell Denise who you wanna see!

If you live in a small town, or used to, you KNOW some of these characters, or some characters just like `em. Maybe you CAN go home again - at least within the friendly confines of this smart series. /TundraVision, Amazon Reviewer
If you like cozy mysteries with humor, romance and thrills, read this series.
