LET'S GET COZY! A SKELETON IN THE FAMILY: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 GIVEAWAY ENDED 
A SKELETON IN THE FAMILY
A Family Skeleton Mystery
BY LEIGH PERRY
ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Most families have skeletons in their closets...

Moving back into her parents’ house with her teenage daughter had not been Georgia Thackery’s “Plan A.” But when she got a job at the local college, it seemed the sensible thing to do. So she settled in and began reconnecting with old friends.

Including Sid. Sid is the Thackery family’s skeleton. He’s lived in the house as long as Georgia can remember, although no one, including Sid, knows exactly where he came from and how he came to be a skeleton.

Sid walks, he talks, he makes bad jokes, he tries to keep Georgia’s dog from considering him a snack. And he manages to persuade Georgia to let him leave the house. But when she takes him to an anime convention—disguised as a skeleton, of course—he sees a woman who triggers memories of his past.

Now he is determined to find out how he died—with Georgia’s help. But their investigation may uncover a killer who’s still alive and well and bad to the bone...

She is a new to me author! I think the skeleton character idea is unique and the mystery will make a good debut for the series.

It is a little late for Sid but a good mystery will entertain. I also love the dog on the cover.

I don't think I have heard of another book with a skeleton as a central character. I'd like to see how a skeleton solves it's own murder.
