Publisher's Summary

Still recovering from breaking up with her boyfriend and alienating half the people in town, Skye Denison has sworn off men - but she hires sexy contractor Beau Hamilton to renovate the old house she inherited. After all, who can ignore his qualifications? Golden hair, bronzed chest, muscular thighs - he’s just too good to be true.
Sure enough, he has a reputation for conning the ladies. But before the not so nave Skye can fire the hunk, he turns up dead. Since even bad boys deserve justice, Skye has to juggle more than a passionate police chief, a cagey brother with a secret, and a possibly haunted house. She’s got a killer to catch.

Liked it - But not my favorite

I enjoy all the Scumble River Mysteries because I have become attached to the characters. The narrator is always great as well. There are a few things that prevent this one from being a favorite. I was very much looking forward to some exciting changes in Skye's love life in this book. I had gotten tired of her previous relationship and was very much looking forward to a new relationship in this book. But it never really makes progress. Skye spends a lot of time being obsessed about "taking it slow" and when she does get about to get close to her new man, something prevents it every time. So that was a letdown. The mystery was okay except that it was the only time that comes to mind where I knew who the guilty party was way before Skye did. She seemed a little clueless this time around.

Bad boy trying to be good

Would you listen to Murder of a Real Bad Boy again? Why?

yes I would, I actually would listen to the whole series over again. these books are really good, and there are little hidden hints that I feel I miss the first time that I listen to each story then at the end I will say "oh yeah I remember that happening"

What other book might you compare Murder of a Real Bad Boy to and why?

I think these series of books have a similar comparison to the Harry Bosh books for me.. I love that series just how each book continues where the previous one left off at and that is how these books are, and you really have to listen to what is going on in the book to figure out the clues just like Sky does..

Which character – as performed by Christine Leto – was your favorite?

I like Sky in this book, she is pretty much my favorite character in this whole series, but I do like May Sky's mother.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I am not sure what the tag line should be that is a hard one..

Any additional comments?
