Publisher's Summary

Georgia Thackery is feeling pretty good about her summer job teaching at prestigious Overfeld College, and she’s renting a rustic cabin right by a lake for herself, her daughter, Madison, and her best friend, Sid the Skeleton. Together again, the trio are enjoying the quiet when a teenager named Jen shows up looking for her friend. Georgia doesn’t recognize the name, but she learns that the person Jen was looking for is actually Sid.  

Sid reveals that he and Jen are part of a regular Online gaming group that formed locally, and one of their members has gone missing. Sid admits that he might have bragged about his investigative prowess, enough so that Jen wants him to find their missing player. Given that Sid doesn’t have many friends offline - none, really, unless you count the Thackery family - Georgia agrees to help him search. They manage to discreetly enlist Jen, who lives in town, and follow the clues to...a dead buddy.   

Now they've got a killer on their hands. Probing the life of Sid's friend, they realize a lot is wrong both on campus and in the seemingly quaint town, and someone doesn't want them looking deeper.

Fun and unique story

The idea of a skeleton that is a thinking and communicating person is a unique twist in the mystery genre and it works! Sid is a delightful character that you would like to be your best friend. Great narration makes this one a hit!

Thoroughly enjoyed this installment

I thoroughly enjoyed this installment in the Family Skeleton series. Leigh Perry’s writing makes you feel as though the characters are your personal friends. If you’re a fan of cozy mysteries then this is the series for you.

More fun & mystery

The skeleton mysteries is a feel-good and fun series with a very special twist- the detective pair includes a haunted skeleton! I don’t how it works, but it totally does. The narrator has the perfect voice for a 30-something mom, soothing and authoritative at once. I greatly enjoy listening to these books over and over again.

Another good book

This is one of the quirkiest cozy mysteries that I have read. Georgia, Madison and Sid have found another mystery that only they can solve. The story is well plotted with witty dialogue and engaging characters. I love this series and look forward to the next book.
