Murder of a Needled Knitter

A Scumble River Mystery featuring Skye Denison

September 2014 from Obsidian, a division of Penguin

Denise Swanson

School psychologist Skye Denison has been waiting forever for her happily-ever-after with police chief Wally Boyd. But her bliss threatens to unravel on the very first day of their luxurious honeymoon cruise, when Skye becomes convinced that she has glimpsed her mother on board! Surely even momzilla May wouldn’t have manipulated Wally into booking the same trip that her knitting group is taking…or would she?

May’s possible presence can’t cool Skye and Wally’s ardor on their personal Love Boat, but discovering knitting expert Guinevere Stallings as she lies dying from a stab wound leaves them untangling the clues of yet another murder investigation rather than getting tangled in the sheets. Since Skye found the body, she’s considered a top suspect, but she’s far from the only one. Guinevere’s imperious ways needled nearly everyone, and she left an impressive number of enemies. It’s up to the crafty newlyweds to figure out which of the wronged parties was angry enough to cast Guinevere off…permanently.

Music:
Scumble River Legend, a Ballad for Small Orchestra by David Stybr (1 minute, © 2001)

How many book series have their own signature music? It's quirky, but so is Scumble River, Illinois.

An apt description of the hard work in the writing process, be it a novel or a symphony:
— Gustav Mahler on his Third Symphony, 25 July 1896 —
     "It is as if a swimmer would have a giant distance to cover to the other side: in the beginning is absolutely no sight of the end, always water, water, which never seems to become less. And in the middle, how far and unreachable the goal still seems to us! But finally it approaches nearer and nearer, until at the conclusion the floods rapidly diminish and with a few strokes it's done!"
