Murder of a Cranky Catnapper

A Scumble River Mystery featuring Skye Denison Boyd

September 2016 from Berkley, a division of Penguin


The nineteenth
Scumble River Mystery
claws up trouble.

A school board sourpuss meets a bitter end...

With her morning sickness finally abated, Skye Denison-Boyd is ready to pounce on the pertinent problems she faces as Scumble River Elementary School's psychologist. After trying almost every trick in the book to aid a handful of socially awkward fourth grade boys, Skye opts for the innovative approach of pet therapy with the assistance of the local vet, a Siberian husky, and a Maine coon cat.

Unfortunately, the first session only breeds disaster and draws the ire of cantankerous school board member Palmer Lynch. But Skye's worry over the episode changes to dread after Lynch is found dead in his home with the therapy cat hidden in the garage. With a clowder of questions unleashed, Skye finds herself dealing with a killer who isn't pussyfooting around...
