Merry Christmas Wedding Murder!
Bingo Denison from Denise Swanson's Scumble River mystery series tells all.
My human, Skye Denison, has been extremely busy this Christmas season. I’m not a big fan of the holiday to begin with and I told her not to plan a wedding for the Saturday after Christmas, but did she listen to me? No! Now, besides the millions of last minute wedding details, there’s been a murder. I told her to let her fiancé, police chief, Wally Boyd handle the investigation, but once again, she ignored my good advice.
What with the wedding and the murder, I’m really afraid she’ll forget to fill my Christmas stocking. I typed my wish list on her laptop, but she seems to have trouble reading it and actually scolded me for “messing up” a psych report she was working on at home.
Skye’s life is so upside down, that even Mrs. Griggs, the ghost that lives in our house, hasn’t been harassing. Well, that is until Skye and Wally got too friendly, then Mrs. Griggs sent in the dogs—at least I think that big ugly thing was a canine of some sort.
I hope once the wedding is over and Skye and Wally are back from their honeymoon things will calm down. I’m not sure how I feel about another guy moving into my house, but so far, Wally has been cool. He cleans my litter box and feeds me the good stuff, not the dry crap Skye tries to give me. If Wally continues to behave, we should get along just fine.
How do you feel about Christmas? Would you plan a big wedding for a few days after the holiday?

PS From Bingo. My friends Banshee and Tsar—a Siamese and Russian Blue cat who live in Shadow Bend, Missouri wanted me to let you know that their story is coming in March. It’s called Dead Between the Lines a Devereaux’s Dime Store Mystery. A book club invites an author to speak and someone doesn’t make it home from the meeting alive.
New York Times Bestselling Author Denise Swanson writes the Scumble River and the Devereaux’s Dime Store mystery series.
