Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's a pleasure for Swanson's readers to welcome back her Scumble River characters, even though she throws them into danger from the first chapter to the last. A tornado, a corpse and a kidnapping make life in Scumble River challenging for Skye Denison-Boyd as she awaits the birth of her first child, but fans of Swanson's series know she can handle it all. Swanson's strongly drawn characters and vivid descriptions make this welcome return of her Scumble River series a pleasure to read." - Sheila Connolly, New York Times bestselling author of Buried in a Bog

"Rejoice, Scumble River fans! Skye and Wally and the whole gang are back―and Denise Swanson proves once again that she is among the top writers of the genre. With more twists and turns than a tornado―a real tornado!―
Dead in the Water is fast-paced and fun, with a smart, savvy protagonist, some truly sinister villains, a suspenseful plot, and a delightfully satisfying ending. I can't wait to visit Scumble River again!" - Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author

"Always an enjoyable series, this is a timely tale considering all the storms and disasters the south and northwest have faced recently. It's a good mystery and a great example of how people work together when trouble hits a whole town. " -
Mysteryrat's Maze - Kings River Life Magazine

"Based on this delightful entry, this cozy series should have a long, bright future." -
Publishers Weekly

"Denise Swanson is one of my favorite cozy mystery authors and DEAD IN THE WATER is yet another hit from her. I love that Denise Swanson has remained true to the heart of the Scumble River characters and atmosphere in her reboot of the series. If you love quirky characters combined with a darned good cozy mystery, then don't hesitate to give DEAD IN THE WATER a try. You won't regret it!" -
