Publisher's Summary

The first book in a brand new series featuring New York Times best-selling author Denise Swanson's beloved Scumble River setting and characters, Dead in the Water is a gripping mystery that won't let you go until the end.
A twister, a kidnapping, and a murder - oh my! Scumble River may never be the same.
For school psychologist Skye Denison, there's certainly no place like home. When a violent tornado devastates her small hometown of Scumble River, she can't see how the community will ever recover - especially since town councilman Zeke Lyons appears to have perished in the twister.
But things get even worse for Skye when her police chief husband, Wally, disappears in the midst of investigating Zeke's death, and evidence arises pointing to foul play. Did Zeke really die in the storm, or was he murdered? And could Wally be next on the criminal's hit list?

Good story, awful narrator. 😳

as usual for the scumble river books, I loved the story line! However, the narrator was wooden and mechanical. The voices were awful and I spent the whole book wishing for the end. She didnt even pronounce Doosiers correctly. I don't know why the change of narrator, but I have just listened to the last in this series if this reader stays...

I love the Scumble River books. I was afraid the author would end the series with Skye and Wally's marriage, so I was totally excited to see that she was starting a new chapter in their story. I was disappointed to see that Christine Leto wasn't narrating, but hey, it's a Scumble River book so I had to get it. I. AM. SO. DISAPPOINTED! The new narrator just ruins what is otherwise a great book. She mispronounces names and her delivery is wooden. No one else has Christine Leto's Scumble River twang, but come on! Couldn't she listen to Ms. Leto's delivery of just one of the previous Scumble River books so she could at least pronounce the names correctly? I'm starting a review campaign. Any other Scumble River fans with me? BRING BACK THE VOICE OF SCUMBLE RIVER!!
