LET'S GET COZY! THE SKELETON HAUNTS A HOUSE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE SKELETON
HAUNTS A HOUSE
A Family Skeleton Mystery
BY LEIGH PERRY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Sid the Skeleton bones up on clues to solve a Haunted House homicide in this mystery from the author of The Skeleton Takes a Bow...

What holiday could bring more warmth to a skeleton's chest cavity than Halloween? And when you're a living skeleton who's not supposed to be seen outside the house, it's a welcome chance to get some fresh air and rub bony elbows with people. That's why Sid doesn't mind wearing a full-body dog suit and going as Scooby-Doo along with Georgia Thackery's Velma to the Halloween Howl.

Sid can't wait to go through the Haunted House--but he gets rattled for real when a genuine dead body is discovered. Trapped inside as the police quickly seal off the crime scene, Sid makes no bones about dropping the dog suit and posing as an actual skeleton. This murder is a skull-scratcher, but as long as Sid is on the inside, he might as well case the joint to figure out who used the cover of darkness to commit the perfect crime...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Leigh Perry is the psuedoname for Toni L. P. Kelner, who is the author of eleven mystery novels: eight Laura Fleming mysteries and three “Where are they now?” mysteries. Both series are available as audio books and e-books. Kelner is also the author of numerous short stories, and co-edits bestselling urban fantasy anthologies with Charlaine Harris. Their most recent are Games Creatures Play and Dead But Not Forgotten. Kelner has won the Agatha Award and an RT BookClub Lifetime Achievement Award, and has been nominated multiple times for the Anthony, the Macavity, and the Derringer. 

Writing as Leigh Perry, she debuted the Family Skeleton series for Berkley Prime Crime, with THE SKELETON TAKES A BOW being her second book in the series now out. Leigh Perry was born in Pensacola, FL and grew up in Gulf Breeze, FL and Charlotte, NC. She currently is living in Malden, MA. She is married to Stephen Paul Kelner, Jr. and they have two daughters, Maggie and Valerie, as well as two guinea pigs names Clara and Spot.

I do enjoy reading Halloween cozy books, and this one sounds like a interesting twist on Sid the Skeleton. I am curious on how Sid operates and solves the mystery. Thank you for the giveaway.

Sid is one of my favorites - were it not for Sid, I may not have re-entered this wonderful world of cozy mysteries! I would love to win this! jeaniedannheim (at) ymail (dot) com

Mama Cat said...

Regarding Leigh's web page - I didn't realize that Sid was considered a paranormal series! He is seriously fun, just like most of we skeletons with skin on. And it was fun to read about how Leigh started working on the idea for the series. Her "Fun Skeleton Links" are a real kick! jeaniedannheim (at) ymail (dot) com

It's nice that Sid got to get out of the house for a bit. Too bad he then got stuck in a different house in a crime scene. At least he can use his skull to solve the murder. Sounds like a fun read. I love the cover.
