    Poor Skye Denison. Her life just keeps getting more and more entangled in the little hometown she’d like to escape for a second time and now she’s involved in another murder, this one of someone very dear to her. Some of Skye’s family resents her snooping and the rest of her family can’t keep their noses out of her business. Her job as school psychologist has all kinds of students, parents and school officials riled up at her and her love life is, well, unsettling to say the least. She’s even managed to miff the local survivalists. Oh, yes, and now Bingo the cat has moved in.

    Will the local cops ever take Skye seriously? Will her mom get over her snit? Is the killer after Skye or is it a low-life parent with a grudge? Where is the missing caregiver? Why do some of her relatives look at Skye as if they just smelled something peculiar? And will she still have a boyfriend when all is said and done?

    Denise Swanson has followed up Murder of a Small-Town Honey with a story that is every bit as delightful as the first in the series, a true cozy that is charmingly entertaining while having a well-developed mystery plot and plenty of red herrings. Ms. Swanson‘s characters are nicely defined—I could visualize every one of them, good and bad—and Skye herself is so likable because her life is just as messed up as yours and mine. Murder of a Sweet Old Lady firmly entrenches Denise Swanson on my list of favorite mystery authors.
