Publisher's Summary

A nasty faculty feud leaves one Scumble River teacher belly-up....

Her honeymoon may have been less than relaxing, but Skye Boyd née Denison is still high on marital bliss with her new husband, Wally. The fact that their family is about to get bigger is even more exciting, even if Skye is dealing with morning sickness - and trying to hide the news from her ever-meddling mother, May.

But Skye quickly comes crashing down from cloud nine when the body of one of her coworkers, science teacher and volleyball coach Blair Hucksford, is found in the school swimming pool. The troublesome trainer was on the bad side of almost everyone on staff and many of the girls on her team, leaving Skye to sort through a huge roster of suspects. Now she must figure out which wronged party was mad enough to kill, and quickly - before someone else in town gets bumped off....

    "Sweet but a bit sappy"

    No my cup of tea. Light but a bit too light for me. Good chick lit

    "Struggled to stay interested"

    The plot is too contrived and unrealistic. , it just didn't hold this retired high school teacher's
    attention.

    "Silliest chapter names ever"

    What a disappointment! The mystery is okay but the tmi and omg and similar titles make it seem as if it's directed towards high school students.

    "Wonderful"

    Loved, loved this book and didn't guess the ending. I adore Wally and Skye and just can't get enough of them. That Skye is having a baby just thrills me and Wally is going to be an awesome father.

    I love the audio versions of this series and listen them over and over.

    "Great Title and Story"
    If you could sum up Murder of an Open Book in three words, what would they be?

    excellent, exciting, wanting


    What other book might you compare Murder of an Open Book to and why?

    I would have the say Connie Shelton Sweet Series. Both series are a lot alike.


    What does Christine Leto bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She did a great job


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved how Wally seem to always put Skye at ease with her doubt and feelings. I also loved the interacting between the two. I have the enjoyed the relationship since book one and I look forward to seeing it grow even more.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listen to this series from the beginning and I have enjoyed watching the relationships grow between all of the characters. I have to say I love the how Skye has grown as well. She seem more secure in her self than in the past I think that is due to the fact Wally takes her for who she is and loves her the same. He even values her work with him. I look forward to book 20 and see how May and Wally's Dad deal with baby issues. I think it be cool to have his dad involved a little more. Let's not forget about what happen in the office with Skye and the deputy. I think there is more going on there as well. So if you enjoyed the other books you will enjoy this one. It leaves you wanting the next one.

    This is a very good series. I have enjoyed every book. Thanks to an ever changing society, Denise Swanson will always have inspiration. This book is no different. The plot is timely and handled in an entertaining way.

    "Great Series!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book written by Denise Swanson and narrated by Christine Leto. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. Her honeymoon may have been less than relaxing, but Skye Denison is still high on marital bliss with her new husband, Wally. The fact that their family is about to get bigger is even more exciting, even if Skye is dealing with morning sickness - and trying to hide the news from her ever-meddling mother, May. But Skye quickly comes crashing down from cloud nine when the body of one of her coworkers, science teacher and volleyball coach Blair Hucksford, is found in the school swimming pool. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises.

    The narrator Christine Leto did a great job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting if I would have had the time. I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

    If you are looking for a great book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
