Murder Of A Stacked Librarian by Denise Swanson is the 16th book in the “Scumble River” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, September 2013
There’s no place like Scumble River at Christmastime, and this year, school psychologist Skye Denison has twice as much to celebrate—and to do. In addition to the usual holiday frenzy, Skye’s wedding to police chief Wally Boyd is less than a week away—that is, if the groom isn’t too busy working to attend. The town’s sexy new librarian, Yvonne Osborn, has just been murdered, and the list of suspects is piling up faster than late fees on an overdue book.
Yvonne’s strict sense of right and wrong annoyed some townspeople and infuriated others. Did her high standards lead to her death? Skye is distracted by worries about what havoc the crazy Dooziers will wreak on her wedding day and whether she’ll fit into her dress. But Skye can’t afford to leave any page unturned because unless she works quickly to expose the scheming killer, her happy ending may be put on permanent hold.
Will the recent murder interrupt their wedding day? Will they get to the church on time? That’s what you’ll find in between the page in this delightfully entertaining read. I’ve been reading this series since the beginning and the road to this final culmination was filled with excitement as Skye prepares for her wedding while helping the PD solve the murder of the librarian. This was a well-written whodunit that quickly became a page turner as I had to see how it was all going to end. The whole gang was here that included her best friend Trixie and of course her mother May. This was the best book in this wonderfully crafted series and I can’t wait to see where the next adventures begin.
