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?

BRING BACK THE VOICE OF SCUMBLE RIVER!

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!!

Great story, Horrible Narration

I am so sad that Christine Leto is not narrating the new revamped series. I LOVE the Scumble River series. I own all the Paperbacks and the audible versions. I think Dead in the Water was a perfect title for the new launch. Not only did the twisters destroy Scumble River, the new new narrator Tanya Eby destroyed all the characters. I tried to finish listening but when she didn’t even make the correct pronunciation of Doozier, it was over for me. She sounds so much like a robot I looked her up to hear a sample of her other work. She sounds less robotic in some others. Sadly this will be my last audible visit to Scumble River. The stories are great so I am definitely continuing the books but am really sad to lose the audible version because Christine Leto brought such life to all the characters. This will be the first audible book I have ever returned for a refund.
