Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Advance praise for Murder of a Small Town Honey:

"A delightful mystery that bounces along with gently wry humor and jaunty twists and turns." --Earlene Fowler

When Skye Denison left Scumble River years ago, she swore she'd never return. But after a bout with her boyfriend and credit card rejection, she's back to home sweet--homicide....

Synopsis:

First in a new cozy series featuring Skye Denison, who's reluctantly returned to her hometown of Scumble River as the new school psychologist. When the elderly host of a beloved children's TV program is found dead at a festival, Skye is compelled to snoop, especially when her brother is accused of the crime.

The Book Resort, June 26, 2009 (view all comments by The Book Resort)
Denise Swanson had me laughing so hard tears rolled & rolled... & rolled again! This series is hysterical. Skye is friggin' hilarious!


My favorite was the Cow Chip Bingo. I had to wipe the tears away. It was unbelievably uproarious!


I would combust into fits of laughter telling anybody & everybody about the wickedly delicious Scumble River series.

Watching Skye Denison return to her hometown was enjoyable. Skye is definitely well loved & is welcome w/ open arms. Of course, there are a few sarcastic comments made about her extra padding ~ she put on a few pounds while away from home.

Skye offers to be a jelly judge at Chokeberry Days, a local tradition that had me doubling over from laughing so hard. Some Scumble River residents advocate it as a way to bring revenue into the town, while others oppose it, groaning it is bringing a little too much change.

Swanson knows how to create characters who are a vibrant mix of personalities. Skye's a quick-witted woman w/ an abundance of intuition into human frailty. Swanson does an excellent job keeping Skye credible.


Skye's dichotomy of indecision is spot on. Skye's thrilled to be home embracing her family's nurturing affection, yet disillusioned by her own feelings of inadequacy. Which Swanson does an extraordinary job describing. Bravo to Denise!!!

Denise Swanson's Murder of a Small-Town depicts life in a small town effortlessly. I wanted to pack my bags for a weekend stay w/ Skye & the rest of the quirky Denison's.


Murder of a Small-Town Honey is a charming, rapid paced mystery that will leave you absolutely impatient for your next visit to Scumble River.
