Description

And the best performance as a skull goes to... After years of hiding in the Thackery family house, Sid the skeleton is delighted to finally have his moment in the spotlight. He's starring in a high school production of Hamlet. Well, not so much starring in as being a prop. At least part of him has a part--he's using his head to play Yorick of "Alas, poor Yorick" fame. Every day, Georgia Thackery's daughter, Madison, who's also in the play, brings in his skull, and every night, she takes him home... Until one night when he's accidentally left at school--and hears the sounds of someone being murdered. But the next day, there's no body and no one seems to be missing. Sid is not a numbskull--he knows what he heard. Georgia thinks he imagined it--until a week later when a body is found. Now Georgia and Sid will both need to keep their heads as they stick their necks out and play sleuth to catch the conscience of a killer...show more

Review quote

Praise for "A Skeleton in the Family" "Dr. Georgia Thackery is smart, resourceful, and determined to be a great single mom to her teenager. Georgia is normal in every respect--except that her best friend happens to be a skeleton named Sid. You'll love the adventures of this unexpected mystery-solving duo."--#1 "New York Times "bestselling author Charlaine Harris. "Adjunct English professor Georgia Thackery makes a charming debut in "A Skeleton in the Family." Georgia is fiercely loyal to her best friend, Sid, an actual skeleton who is somehow still 'alive.' When Sid see someone he remembers from his past life--who later turns up dead--Georgia finds herself trying to put together the pieces of Sid's past as she works to hunt down a killer. Amateur sleuth Georgia, and her sidekick, Sid, are just plain fun!"--Sofie Kelly, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Cat Trick" "No bones about it, Leigh Perry hooked me right from the beginning. An unusual premise, quirky characters and smart, dry humor season this well-told mystery that kept me guessing until the very end. It's too bad Perry's sleuth is fictional--I'd invite Georgia over for dinner in a heartbeat."" --"Bailey Cates, Author of "Bewitched, Bothered and Biscotti" "A delightful cozy with a skeleton who will tickle your funny bone."--Paige Shelton, national bestselling author of "If Bread Could Rise to the Occasion"show more
