When school psychologist Skye Denison discovers a body crushed by a toppled bookcase in Scumble River's new bookstore, she has to read the clues before she becomes the killer's next work-in-progress.I received this book as part of one of my Secret Santa packages this past year.
After the last couple of books, I was in the mood for a quick and light mystery book. This book hit the spot right away. While the bookstore was the location of the murder, it didn't play too much of a part within the plot.
While this book was part of a series, I did feel that it was readable as a stand alone book as well. It probably would help to understand the background of the characters more if I had read other books in the Scumble River series.
I would equate this author's style to Mary Higgins Clark or Janet Evanovich. She is able to capture small town life well with a nice mystery to be solved.
