Murder of a Royal Pain - Scumble River, Bk 11 Author:Denise Swanson When school psychologist Skye Denison stumbles over the body of a pushy Promfest chairperson Annette Paine during a Halloween fund-raiser, it looks like a clear cut case of promicide.

Still one question haunts her: since the Annette Paine was wearing a witch costume identical to Skye's, which witch was the intended victim? Will Skye realize too late that finding this killer is a matter of her own life or death?« less
This was a good book. (I find that almost all of hers are.) If you've read the series or even just the few prior to this one, you will like it even more, as it has ties to the previous books. I did find it pretty easy to figure it out except for one part at the end. Good though!
Halloween is approaching in Scumble River, and school psychologist Skye Denison has reluctantly volunteered to dress up as a witch in a Haunted House fundraiser to raise money for the school's Promfest. But when the event's overbearing chairwoman, Annette Paine, is found dead during the dress rehearsal for the Promfest, the police aren't sure if Annette's death was murder or an accident. Skye begins to fear that she herself was the intended victim.
This is the eleventh book in the Scumble River series, another fun mystery. However, in my opinion, not as good as most of the others in the series, because there is very little interaction between Skye and her family, friends and boyfriend. Most of the family and friends are out of town for the whole story, and I missed them very much!
