Publisher's Summary

Who could be driven to kill by books and sweets? While school psychologist Skye Denison eagerly anticipates the grand opening of a new bookstore called Tales & Treats, many of Scumble River's most outspoken citizens want to shut down the owners before they even open - and one is angry enough to commit murder....
Dropping off some books at Tales & Treats, Skye trips over a toppled bookcase, which has crushed a woman beneath its weight. While police search for motives, Skye sees the messy aftermatch of a half-baked plot to murder somebody else.
Skye is juggling her own busy life, but when all the clues lead to dead ends, she turns up the heat on her own investigation... and stumbles upon the deadly secret that got this bookstore babe done in. And if Skye isn't careful, the killer just might make her the sequel.

funny and twisting plot

This is the first book by Denise Swanson. I love murder mysteries. Some go way on the dark side. Swanson's Murder of a Bookstore Babe is a lighthearted deviance from the dark and deep throws of the hard core murder mysteries.

I bought this on the deal of the dey so I can't say I wasted a lot of money... It is an achievement to make a murder so sanitized and bland. It was a challenge to finish the whole story. I kept falling asleep and having to go back and find my place. Buy it if you need a really good nap.
