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?


  1. It will be great to see more of you again, Frannie!

  2. So long to wait! You must be very grounded to be so patient, Frannie.

  3. Well, I miss you! Looking forward to your return. Online dating adventures? Can't wait.

  4. Frannie, you'll be graduating from college when we see you next!

  5. Thanks, everyone! I am pretty patient and since Scumble River time runs a lot slower than regular time, I'll only be finishing up my sophomore year of college.

  6. Glad to hear you'll still be a sophomore so we'll have more time with you before you graduate from college and possibly move on!?

  7. Glad to know that we'll be seeing more of you. I did miss you in the last adventure.
