Review: Murder of a Small-Town Honey by Denise Swanson
One of the things that I find the most interesting about reading a book later in the series and then reading the first book from the same series is that you have secret knowledge but it also makes the first book slightly more confusing.
The Scumble River Mysteries are cozy mysteries and The Murder of a Small-Town Honey is super cozy. The characters are well developed and have great back stories. Skye Denison, the main character, is a school psychologist that has to move home after her less-than-successful move to the big city left her broke and single.
As anyone who has moved from a small town, to a big city, and then back again; Skye struggles with moving back home. She feels like she doesn't belong and has a hard time fitting in, a feeling that almost everyone can relate to.
The mystery keeps you guessing until the end. The writing makes it easy to read and really allows you to immerse yourself into the world that is Scumble River.
I rate this book a 7 out of 10. Very enjoyable read, quick and to the point.
