Blurb: When school psychologist Skye Denison left Scumble River after high school, she swore she would never return to such a small minded town. But when credit card and boyfriend trouble caused her to slink home, she tries to blend in unnoticed. However inconspicuous has never been one of Skyes attributes, as the small-town busybodies try to bring her out in the public eye whenever they can. When she stumbles upon a dead TV personality, the police accuse her brother and she is forced to prove him innocent. This proves to be a daunting task, but Skye is up to the task. She is bright, persistent, gutsy and the perfect amateur sleuth.

My Comments: Being a social worker and therapist myself, I found this to be a fun read. I found the ending to be a bit weak and forced, but that may have just been because Id had a hard day. Who knows? But I do plan to read the second in the series and hopefully the rest. Skye is the kind of person that I think Id be friends with in real life, and I like her nerve.

I wasn't really impressed with this book, but it is the start of a series and I've found that with a lot of the cozy mystery series I've read, the first book is usually a little slow to start. Some of the antics played on the town were cute, but there was also some serious issues brought in which didn't make the book very funny or lighthearted for me.

First in the series but second one I read. I like the character, Skye, who returns to her small town after telling everyone how much she hated it there. Dumped by her fiancee, fired from her job, she has no choice but to go back and face the music. And falls right into - murder! Actually good. Interesting. I have the next one to read as well.

The author really ask the reader for "suspension of disbelief" in this one!! A quick read to end the day on .. so I enjoyed it not as much as some and more than others. I read a lot of books, and this type of book is just right for between a big thick historical novel or a heavy thriller. So do I recommend it, with reservations, depending on your reading style and mood.
