Praise for the New York Times bestselling Scumble River mysteries "I enjoy every minute of every book of this series."--#1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris "Swanson is a born storyteller."--CrimeSpree Magazine "Bounces along with gently wry humor and jaunty twists and turns. The quintessential amateur sleuth: bright, curious, and more than a little nervy."--Agatha Award-winning author Earlene Fowler "Swanson serves up another romance-sweetened tale of murder in the endearingly zany town of Scumble River."--Chicago Tribune "Well-crafted....From normal to nutty, the folks of Scumble River will tickle the fancy of cozy fans."--Publishers Weekly
