In the latest from the New York Times best-selling author of Murder of an Open Book, a school psychologist has her hands full after a school board sourpuss meets a bitter end.
With her morning sickness finally abated, Skye Denison-Boyd is ready to pounce on the pertinent problems she faces as Scumble River Elementary School's psychologist. After trying almost every trick in the book to aid a handful of socially awkward fourth grade boys, Skye opts for the innovative approach of pet therapy with the assistance of the local vet, a Siberian husky, and a Maine coon cat.
Unfortunately, the first session only breeds disaster and draws the ire of cantankerous school board member Palmer Lynch. But Skye's worry over the episode changes to dread after Lynch is found dead in his home with the therapy cat hidden in his garage. With a clowder of questions unleashed, Skye finds herself dealing with a killer who isn't pussyfooting around.

"Not her best"
I have always enjoyed Denise Swanson's cozy mysteries but this one was so full of the issues of pregnancy, worry about lack of sex drive because of the pregnancy, and the like that it wasn't even fun to listen too. If I had to listen one more time about the fact that the heroine had to pee I would have given up on the book...ridiculous.
I have enjoyed all of the Scumble River books thus far, and hope to hear many more. The characters are interesting and easy to like.
"Entertaining and fun"
This is another great book in the series. Denise Swanson does a great job keeping the Characters fresh and the stories entertaining. I look forward to the next book in this series.
I so much enjoy Ms. Swanson's books. Both of her series sparkle and ring true.
In the Murder of a Cranky Catnapper I loved puzzling-solving along with Skye. It was wonderful catching up with the old gang too. Sometimes I wish I hadn't already read all of the other books in this series so I could sit down and binge-read them! Maybe, I'll take a 'forget' pill so that I can start from the beginning.
This is by far my favorite and it is number 29. They just keep getting better. Skye and Wally, Vince and Loretta are wonderful couples and good friends. And they are yet another couple to the group Abby and Lincoln. Trixie isn't has prominent in this story but I didn't mind that at all.
Really well written with a fantastic plot and the narration was really good.
