Honeymoons Can Be Murder

We're celebrating the Cozy Days of Summer with a daily giveaway through July! Today's winner will get a copy of  Dead Between the Lines by Denise Swanson. Leave a comment by midnight today -- with your email address, so Denise can reach you -- for a chance to win!
 




Skye Denison Boyd from Denise Swanson’s New York Times bestselling Scumble River mystery series talks about her honeymoon.

Hi! My name is Skye Denison Boyd. I just added that third name last night and am now ready to start my honeymoon. Back home in Scumble River, a small town in Central Illinois, I work as a school psychologist, but for the next week, my only job is to get used to being Mrs. Wally Boyd. Or as Barbara Streisand so eloquently sang, Sadie the married lady.

 
Not that I had any doubts, but I was sure that I had chosen the right guy to marry, when he surprised me with a Caribbean cruise for our honeymoon. Not just a cruise, but a suite! Wally said that he got a really good deal because the travel agent had some sort of large group booked on this trip. Considering who I thought I saw on the staircase when we were waiting for the elevator, I sure hope our ship isn’t crawling with folks from our hometown. While I love my fellow Scumble Riverites, I don’t want to share my honeymoon with them.  

Still, as long as no one gets murdered, I guess the rest doesn’t matter. Just keep your fingers crossed for me that no bodies turn up. I so don’t want to be investigating a murder during my honeymoon.

 
If you’re interested in Skye’s honeymoon, read all about it in Murder of a Needled Knitter, which debuts September 2. It can be preordered at

  12. Reading about Skye's adventures is always fun,
    Her friends her mother, the house never done.
    Whether she's in school or out on a date,
    When it comes to finding the murderer she's never late!

  61. Pick me, pick me! I have followed Skye since "Murder of a Small Town Honey" and have read each book at least twice. I couldn't be happier about Skye choosing Wally than Skye is. Now if she could just get some backbone with that mother of hers ... dz87507 at gmail dot com

  64. Thank goodness for cozy mysteries especially since my latest bout of venous ulcers and then hospitalization and daily outpatient IV infusion for a terrible bacterial infection. The books kept my mind off the pain and gave me something to think about when times have been so rough these past six months. Thank you for writers of cozies and how much they give to the readers.

  65. That would be an awful way to live: always wondering when someone will recognize you. It reminded me of Sleeping with the Enemy and the JLo movie where she fights back after being on the run. These books/stories always make me extremely nervous as I read them, and I love when they end well. I love to read about women empowered. Thanks for the story!
