Her strength and determination are amazing. Swanson also has the over-bearing mother, the unlikable mayor and an overly rich father.
Skye's mother, who also works as a dispatcher for the police, is like any mother when her daughter is pregnant The Mayor, who is also Skye's uncle, on the other hand is a horrible person!!
With him there is instant hatred that you will have throughout the book. Which is fine, there always has to be someone to dislike, even if its not the murderer.
And everyone wants a father or father-in-law like Carson, Wally's dad. He is so rich that it is crazy but what he does with his money only makes you love him.
Not only does Swanson tell a great, mind catching story but the characters are so unique as well. Even the motorcycle gang has loveable characters, if you can wrap your head around that.
Dead in the Water was extremely hard to put down. You will want to continue reading to see what happens in Scumble River, who killed the councilman Zeke, and how Skye and Wally handle the tornado.
It is clear when reading Dead in the Water that family and community mean everything to the people of Scumble River and the extent that a family member will do for their family is the difference between life and death Sep 04, Kristina rated it really liked it Shelves: Skye Denison-Boyd is at home when violent storms strike the area.
Wally rushes home to get Skye into the basement along with Bingo, the cat when the tornado sirens ring out there warning. After the storm, they discover that their home is destroyed.
Three separate tornadoes struck Scumble River leaving devastation in its wake. The mayor has Wally check on their newest councilman, Zeke Lyons who got separated from his family.
Wally finds Zeke dead in the bathroom of his home and knows his death cannot be attributed to the storm. Who took advantage of the tornadoes to wipe out mild mannered Zeke Lyons?
Wally has a full plate with a murder investigation, rescuing citizens, the burglaries occurring around town, his limited staff, and a pregnant wife.
Wally heads out one afternoon and fails to return. What happened to Wally? Will Caron and Skye be able to find him in time?
To find out what happens, pick up a copy of Dead in the Water. Swanson provided the needed history on the main characters.
There are quite a few characters mentioned in the beginning as Skye checks in on family and friends , but it settles down to a manageable level.
My rating for Dead in the Water is 4. Dead in the Water is an engaging and entertaining story. It has lively and quirky characters except the mayor who I hope gets ousted in the upcoming election.
I thought the story was easy to read, had a good pace, and just the right amount of humor. The two mysteries were interesting with one being more complicated than the other.
I thought the method of murder was clever. The suspense ramps up towards the end of the book which had me up late turning the pages.
The ending is sweet and will leave you smiling. I will definitely be reading the next installment in the Welcome Back to Scumble River series.
Sep 09, Elisa Hordon rated it it was amazing. I have to say thank you Denise Swanson for the new Skye and Wally book I have been hanging out for it and yes it was worth the wait.
Skye seems to be months pregnant poor bugger, she is loving carrying Wally's baby but term 3 is just darn uncomfortable her reaction at the Dr's was just adorable.
A tornado hits Scumble river, Wally finds a dead body and it doesn't look natural death, Skye is having braxton hicks contractions and she worries the baby might come early, there is so much to be done I have to say thank you Denise Swanson for the new Skye and Wally book I have been hanging out for it and yes it was worth the wait.
Wally's dad Corson flies to Skye's rescue and does an amazing job of being wonder dad and keeping Skye safe just as Wally would want him to. Sky's mum is trying not to worry Sky to much and I have to say May stepped up for me in this one she was a lot less critical of Skye which was awesome I prefer May less critical I would love to see her and Skye become closer and Skye to focus less on her body image, she is gorgeous just the way she is.
All round another wonderful Scumble River mystery with all my favourite characters and great murder solved and a very wonderful ending.
Aug 17, Mary Brown rated it it was amazing. I have read some of the first Scumble River books many years ago, and I really liked them back then.
And I am happy to say that I really like the new Scumble River books too. This book had everything I look for in a cozy mystery: The characters are well rounded and well developed.
I really enjoyed getting to spend time with Skye and Wally. They were likable and felt like people I would like to be friends with.
Skye is spunky, smart and is not afraid to take chances when it comes to people she cares about. Wally cares deeply for Skye and he has a keen sense of justice.
I also really liked the relationship between Skye and her mother, May. Although they aggravate each other at times, you could tell how close they were and how much they loved each other.
This made the book seem more realistic to me. The secondary characters added a lot to the story and I cannot wait to spend more time with all of them in upcoming books.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and for much of the book I felt like I was right there, watching all of the activity taking place around me.
I really felt like I was right there with Skye and Wally when the tornado was barreling into them. I also really felt that the author put personal touches into her writing, which pulls the reader into the book.
One such personal touch for me was what Skye and her mom ordered from Olive Garden. They ordered chicken gnocchi soup, which is what I always order from there.
Such a s small thing but it really made me feel more drawn into the story and made it more personal to me. I liked the way there were more than one mystery to solve: Finding out the answer to these questions kept me reading well into the night, when I should have been sleeping.
The mysteries and suspense were well written. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. I plan on reading the original Scumble River books that I have missed and am looking forward to the new books in the series.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks Landmark for the opportunity to read and review this great book.
This series is filled with a ton of great characters, a lovely setting, and a story line that will keep you coming back for more. I'm liking the direction that the author is headed in and hope that there are many more books to come.
Even though this says it's the first book it is a new start to a already wonderful series. Terrific couldn't put down mystery.
I was fooled on who done it. Great to see all of our favorite characters again, including the red raggers, I love the many strange ways the Doozier's have of making money.
Jun 03, Liz Jones rated it it was amazing. Exciting story, will keep the pages turning! Aug 26, pam lanham rated it it was amazing.
The Scumble River series has been rejuvenated and I am thrilled. I have been a fan of these books for a long time and I was kind of worried when a new publisher came on board but I think it was a good move.
I don't want to give anything away but readers will be happy with this book. It has everything a good mystery needs and then some.
Murder, kidnapping, a tornado, and a birth are just a few of the events that will keep you I received an ARC of this book from the ALA and I enjoyed it very much.
Murder, kidnapping, a tornado, and a birth are just a few of the events that will keep you reading. Denise Swanson has been re-energized and I am happy to be going along for the ride.
Dead in the Water By: Welcome Back to Scumble River 20 Publisher: The main characters are very likeable, strong family connections, two mysteries rolled into one Although Dead in the Water is advertised as a Scumble River series reboot, in actuality, it is a continuation of the Scumble River series with a new publisher.
Skye Denison-Boyd, a school psychologist and a consultant for the police department, is blissfully married to Wally, the local police chief, and they are eagerly awaiting the birth of their first child.
With maternity leave fast approaching, Skye is frantically trying to prepare for her substitute to take over. Secretly, the mayor pulls Wally aside to send him on what seems like a mundane errand, but then Wally disappears.
Skye is pregnant, her house has been destroyed, and now Wally has vanished without a trace. Skye is frantic, and where is Wally and will he ever be reunited with his family?
Another thrilling whirlwind of mystery and fun characters! More plot twists than a tornado. When the book starts though, a tornado is hitting their little town of Scumble River, destroying their house and everything in it.
This book was ok. Even if this is a new series, the characters are from an old series which was transposed to present day.
As a brand new reader, I could tell I was only picking up the story and the characters in the middle of something.
It felt like I was reading a sequel not the first book in a series. That was a shame. I mean all the deductions Skye made seemed obvious to me and I was yelling them at her long before she figured it out.
None of the later twists really surprised me, but I was taken aback by one twist towards the beginning. May 09, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed this entry in the series.
A couple different mysteries going on all complicated by the tornado that just went through town. I really enjoyed the Wizard of Oz quotes at the beginning of each chapter and there was a character named Miss Gulch!
Lots of fun and I can't wait to read the next book. She is very pregnant and very in love with her husband of eight months, police chief Wally Boyd.
New readers will be introduced to Scumble River as the author seamlessly weaves together past and present. Skye is a school psychologist as well as a consultant Skye Dennison-Boyd is back, with an exciting new Welcome Back to Scumble River series.
Skye is a school psychologist as well as a consultant to the police department. Two students who Skye helped during their high school years stopped for a brief visit.
Wally arrives just in time to herd everyone to the cellar. When the terrible noise stops, Wally looks out to find that the beautiful home Skye had inherited and lovingly remodeled was gone.
They arrange for a place to stay and Wally hunkers down to work until the worst of the crisis is over. Sadly, Zeke is the first casualty found since the storms began, but it looks much more like murder to Wally.
Dante then sends Wally out to check on the home of someone who is currently out of the area. Skye, her family and friends, even the Dooziers and Red Raggers are as delightful or frustrating, depending as in the earlier series.
Of course, I love Skye best, and even her mom, knowing how hard change is for her, especially for a small-town, Midwest mother. This Scumble River family rocks!
One thing I like is how each chapter begins with a quote from The Wizard of Oz that is fitting to the chapter.
It is a favorite tale that with lessons relevant to today, through tornados and other dangers. There are plot twists and turn that bring excitement, apprehension, or pure alarm and dread.
This first in the new Scumble River series combines crises reflecting what many around the country face, being suddenly homeless and very pregnant, or getting unexpected news from the doctor, or discovering that a loved one has disappeared.
It also includes the very positive ideals of watching people work together to help each other and what is needed most by those whose lives have just been dramatically changed.
The mysteries are well-planned with stunning plot twists. I highly recommend Dead in the Water!! It is an amazing start to a new series, not to be missed!
Scumble River has never been so awesome! From a grateful heart: I received this eBook from the publisher and NetGalley, and this is my honest review.
Non ho letto i 18!!! Ho, invece, visto che l'autrice ha appena lanciato una nuova serie: Sep 06, Susan Johnston rated it it was amazing.
For some reason, I was not able to get on with this series the first book I read but I decided to give it another go. Sometimes things don't click.
I am so glad I tried again because I really enjoyed this book and will go back and try the other ones. A terrible tornado demolishes the little town of Scumble River including Skye and Wally's home.
The fact that Skye is about to pop out a baby very soon and is massively pregnant does not make things easier Princess Fuzzypants here: The fact that Skye is about to pop out a baby very soon and is massively pregnant does not make things easier.
And then, while everyone is trying to get back on their feet, Wally disappears and no one knows where he might be. Both Skye and Wally are well drawn and believable characters.
So are the others who surround them. It makes the tension greater and the book more enjoyable. I especially like that while Skye is deeply involved in finding Wally, anything she does is realistic and intelligent.
I dislike when my heroes or heroines veer into the absurd. The reader can share the experiences of the people dealing with the tragedy because it is so true to life.
I won't spoil all the twists and turns and surprises but I will recommend this book. I give it five purrs and two paws up. Aug 25, DelAnne Frazee rated it it was amazing Shelves: For school psychologist Skye Denison, there's certainly no place l Title: When a violent tornado devastates her small hometown of Scumble River, she can't see how the community will ever recover—especially since town councilman Zeke Lyons appears to have perished in the twister.
Scumble River is a busy little town that has been hit with a series of unexpected events. With so many things happening is it any wonder Skye is in such a state and determined to find her husband, solve the murder and put her life back in order.
From start to end Denise Swanson has built a town and populated it with interesting and likable people.
Adding a disaster and a murder to keep your interest fixed firmly on Scumble River. I hope others find this first book in the series as an enjoyable as I did.
The Reading Room Link: Feb 24, Suzanne rated it liked it. This is a reboot of a series she wrote a decade or so ago. I imagine readers who liked the original series will also like this one.
She is a better than average mystery writer, though I found several cliched conventions in this one. It isn't a cozy. It isn't a hard boiled detective.
But it's a quick and easy read and fairly satisfying to someone wanting a good mystery to curl up with for an evening. May 20, Jenn rated it really liked it.
First, let's get it out of the way. This is 19 in the series. I've enjoyed these books quite a bit.
It's hard to find a cozy series that I really like, but these are good ones. A cozy mystery, decent plot, not so realistic characters, but the two main characters do have some depth.
Enjoyed the story, felt like I didn't need to hear some of the thoughts running through one main character's mind, but do see that it's becoming more common with people in real life, which makes me wonder Just illustrating the point.

I loved the second book in the Ender series. In part, it was because Card knows how to write some convincing characters and infuse conversations with deeper meaning.
Also, after the first book's rather dark tone--all about using kids to defeat an enemy no matter the cost to the children's lives, not to mention the constant physical and emotional abuse of poor little Ender--this second book strikes a very optimistic and warm tone.
Speaker for the Dead is about redemption, acceptance, forgiveness and family. By way of negatives, there are a few. First, there are a whole lotta characters in this book, and it took me a bit to keep track of them all.
Second, portions of the plot felt a little forced. Two humans either volunteered or were forced to do something horrific that remains a secret that confounds everyone for most of the book but never argued their way out of it or alerted loved ones?
And after almost 50 years of dedicated scientific research, Ender walks in and knows more in three hours? If you can accept all that, the story is beautiful and moving, the characters rich and human and the ending both satisfying and tragic.
It may be a little too neat, but I still found it a thoughtful and emotional story. I prefer this book to Enders game. It is a slower, suspense driven novel.
The interactions between the creatures and various species on the planet was interesting. Each grows and is addressed throughout the book Negatives: It isn't as focused on the character level.
This makes it slightly more difficult to relate too. One person found this helpful. I found the narrative to be somewhat repetitious but I loved it never-the-less.
