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, national bestselling 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
