Skye Denison, school psychologist thought she had trouble with her job, but she actually had it easy compared to her brother Vince.

Normally a hairdresser, Vince and his band, formerly known as the Plastic Santa's have renamed themselves as the Pink Elephants and are playing at the Valentine Dance at the high school. That is if he and his band can stop beating each other up.

Things get really hot when a fire breaks out at the high school and Logan Wolf, lead singer winds up dead.

Skye is determined not to get involved in the investigation, but when Sheriff Wally seems to have Vince in his sights again as the murder suspect, Skye decides she has to act.

Could Logan's murder have anything to do with the rumors of drugs in the school? Or maybe it had something to do with Logan refusing to sell Moss Green his farmland so Moss could put up Pig In A Poke - his amusement park.

Wally isn't too pleased with her investigations, he's running for mayor and he's hassled at every press conference about the fact that he can't solve a crime and has to rely on a citizen to do the investigating.

Even after several attempts on her life, Skye continues her search until she comes face to face with the murderer.

Highlights:

Skye's family. Her parents and godfather Charlie and brother Vince are very close and obviously adore Skye.

Sheriff Wally. I've like him since the first book, he doesn't mind Skye investigating usually, but doesn't like the fact that she takes unnecessary risks.

Justin And Frannie, two somewhat geeky high school students who work on the school paper and do a lot of undercover investigation. They come across a lot of clues that they then pass on to Skey.

May's cement goose that she dresses up on her front lawn.

Lowlights:

Skye - I'm beginning to wonder if there is something wrong with this woman. She surprised at her brother censure of Logan sleeping with a groupie, after all Vince has quite a reputation. Skye obvioiusly doesn't think there is a difference between the single Vince being with someone and the married Logan being with someone.

Skye gets into trouble several times when she should have given some information to Wally, he didn't answer her phone calls and when she went to the station she realized his ex-wife Darleen was intercepting the messages, so next time when she really needs to tell him something and he doesn't call her back, does she go to his house and tell him? Of course not, she'll do it in the morning, afterall what could happen before then? Justin and Frannie show more intelligence in their investigating than she does.

Bunny - the mother of Simon (Skye's boring boyfriend). Fortunately, she is only in a few pages of the book. I cannot stand this character, Skye finds her refreshing after having to put up with her overbearing mother. I suppose she would have liked it if her mother ran out on her and her father, came back several times and ran off again, the last time twenty years ago when she not only ran off but took all the money out of her husband's savings account. That's the kind of mother Bunny was to Simon.

As I said in my earlier review of this series. Skye picked the wrong boyfriend. Simon, local funeral parlor owner and coroner is ok, but there are absolutely no sparks between Skye and him.

Skye seems so flaky at times that I would wonder about her abilities at her job in helping troubled kids.

This is a strange series where I find that everyone but the heroine, her boyfriend and his mother are so wonderful you want to continue reading about them. The mystery itself is very good. A lot of clues but no cheating on the ending, although I suspected who the killer was but wasn't confirmed until the end.

It's not too late to dump Simon and his mother.

Fabulous and funny, suspenseful, great book, as are all the others I've read in the series! Loveable characters, fast paced read.

The characters in this series have become so unlikable...especially Skye. Talk about priorities out-of-place, she balks repeatedly about climbing a ladder to the roof of the school to help save a kid on drugs who believes he can fly yet supposedly has no fear facing possible murders single handedly. To quote her arrogance, "It would be a busy day. After she solved the murder for Wally, she had three meetings to attend and a psychological evaluation to complete."

The story itself had some interest but the bad guys were so blatantly obvious from the beginning that it spoiled the plot.

Here's another fun little lite cozy murder mystery featuring Skye Dennison and her friends and family. This time, it appears Scumble River and the surrounding communities in Illinois' Heartland are being visited by the plagues of Egypt: Fire, Flood, Famine, - and the death of the lead singer in Skye's brother Vince's band, the Band Formerly Known As Plastic Santa, now Pink Elephant. In keeping with the Band Motif, the chapter names are apt and fitting from Our Generation - like "Fire and Rain" and "That'll Be The Day."

Author Denise Swanson, herself a School Psychologist in Illinois, was paying attention in writing class when the teacher told them to "Write what you know!" The results work. The reader need not read all the books in this series in order - Swanson artfully gives new readers the background and returning readers a refresher course - but why miss all the fun back down on the farm? The plot and pace are perky. The style's breezy. If you live in small town, or used to, you KNOW some of these characters!

I like this series with only a few exceptions. The spelling mistakes are pretty bad, there is a little too much focus on her and her family being accused of murders, and the business with her mother and her obsession with Simon gets really old.

Scumble River #6. Another fun romp with Skye Denison, the school psychologist. This one entails her brother Vince's Band and the very strange actions of the school children. Simon (the undertaker) and his mother (Bunny) refurbish the bowling alley. There are mayoral debates between the gym teacher and the chief of police.

Enjoy the Scumble River Series very much. We have camped in the area she writes about for many years, and can place many of the places in town she describes. Happy a friend told me about the series.
As I said before, I love this series. Where does Ms Swanson come up with these kooky characters? Especially the Dooziers. Highly recommend this series.
