I’ll Be Back
--Frannie Ryan from Denise Swanson’s Scumble River mystery series
My name is Frannie Ryan and I’ve been a part of Ms. D’s Scumble River crime solving team since the most popular girl in my high school was murdered. At that time I was a sophomore in high school, and saw Ms. D almost every weekday, but now that I’m a sophomore in college we don’t get to spend as much time together.
It was fun seeing Ms. D and Mrs. Frayne at the grand opening of Tales and Treats. Who knew that a bookstore would cause a protest march?
Between school and my part-time job working at Bunny Lanes, the town bowling alley, I’m almost too busy even to chill with my boyfriend Justin Boward. But I think things are about to change.
Rumor has it that Ms. D’s biographer, Ms. Swanson, is planning to write about the alley manager, Bunny Reid’s adventures in online dating. And you know Justin and I will feature prominently in that story. So, although you won’t see me during the next case, which will be out available October 4, 2012, I’ll be front and center in 2013.
How about you? Is there someone you miss seeing and wish you had more time to hang out with?
