Synopsis: Georgia Thackery is feeling pretty good about her summer job teaching at prestigious Overfeld College, and she’s renting a rustic cabin right by a lake for herself, her daughter, Madison, and her best friend, Sid the Skeleton. Together again, the trio are enjoying the quiet when a teenager named Jen shows up looking for her friend. Georgia doesn’t recognize the name, but she learns that the person Jen was looking for is actually Sid.
Sid reveals that he and Jen are part of a regular online gaming group that formed locally, and one of their members has gone missing. Sid admits that he might have bragged about his investigative prowess, enough so that Jen wants him to find their missing player. Given that Sid doesn’t have many friends offline—none, really, unless you count the Thackery family—Georgia agrees to help him search. They manage to discreetly enlist Jen, who lives in town, and follow the clues to… a dead buddy.
Now they’ve got a killer on their hands. Probing the life of Sid’s friend, they realize a lot is wrong both on campus and in the seemingly quaint town, and someone doesn’t want them looking deeper.
Ready for a light-hearted, slightly paranormal mystery? The Family Skeleton series by Leigh Perry might be for you. This series is so unique, and the wise-cracking investigating skeleton never gets in the way of the mystery, but only adds to the fun.
When Sid’s online gaming friend comes looking for him to help find a missing player, Georgia agrees to help him look. What they find is murder, and I had a great time tagging along for the investigation.
The Skeleton Makes a Friend is the 5th book in this series. You can enjoy this book without reading the previous entries, but I think you’ll want to go back and start at the beginning after you do.
