**ABOUT THE BOOK:**

**In New York Times bestselling author Denise Swanson’s “slightly zany”* new mystery series, Devereaux Sinclair loves running her old-fashioned store in her small Missouri hometown. If only murder didn’t keep landing on her doorstep...**

**Dev’s five-and-dime may be doing well, but her love life is in turmoil. She’s torn between Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio, who is on an undercover assignment, and her ex-beau Noah Underwood, the local doctor from a high-society family. So she welcomes the distraction when Elise Whitmore offers her a great deal on antique chocolate molds that would be perfect for her Easter gift baskets. But do the molds actually belong to Elise’s soon-to-be ex-husband? In buying them, has Dev committed a felony?**

**When Elise is found shot to death, the mystery deepens—and Dev’s good friend Boone, who discovered the body, is taken into custody. With the help of her best buds, Dev must clear Boone’s name and find the real killer. Good thing that when it comes to amateur sleuths, they broke the mold with Dev Sinclair.**

**ABOUT THE AUTHOR:**

**Denise Swanson has worked as a school psychologist for 17 years. She lives in Illinois with her husband, Dave, and their cool black cat, Boomerang. For more information, visit her website**

I remember the magic of the 5 & dime stores when I was growing up in the 40s and 50s. This sounds like a wonderful - and new - series to me.

I grew up in such a small town,they didn't get a McD's until the 90's, but we did have a five and dime. I went back in the first time in twenty years, and it itsno longer there. I would love to read this mystery. It sounds like a book I would really like.

Five and dimes are a perfect setting for cozies. They are so hard to find these days. I know that I would love reading about Dev's store.

This book has such an interesting and unusual premise that I would love to read it. Besides the fact that I miss going to the "5 and 10".

I think it is interesting that Denise swanson's website has a musical "theme" for the Scumble River series.

I always loved going to the five & dime. I also love a good mystery so putting them together is perfect.

The first thing that drew me to the book was that it is a cozy mystery and the second that is was set in Missouri. Thank you
