Spotlight On...

Good friend, bestselling author, and fellow Deadly Diva Denise Swanson's latest book, Murder of a Royal Pain, the 11th in the Scumble River Mystery Series, hit shelves last week.

If you haven't read any of Skye Denison's adventures, I can wholeheartedly recommend them. They're a great mix of witty writing, great mysteries, and memorable characters. Definitely pick up a copy.

A blurb about the latest book:

When school psychologist Skye Denison stumbles over the body of pushy promfest chairperson Annette Paine during a Halloween fund-raiser, it looks like a clear-cut case of promicide. Annette was not the only prom mom desperate to see her daughter crowned queen — and her skirt-chasing hubby is no prince either.

Skye's anxious to investigate, but she keeps getting sidetracked by the overeager new social worker at school and also by her beau's emotional distance. Still, one question haunts her: Since Annette Paine was wearing a witch costume identical to Skye's, which witch was the intended victim? Will Skye realize too late that finding this killer is a matter of her own life and death?

  1. I've missed your Spotlight On blogs...I always enjoy recommendations from what others are reading, especially from people who love the kinds of books I love. Royal Pain is in my TBR pile =)

    What were you doing blogging at 3:19am? LOL

  2. Melissa, the blog was time-stamped! Me? Up at 3:19 am? I don't think so. LOL. So NOT a night owl.

    I hope to do more Spotlights On--gotta get reading!
