2) Murder of a Stacked Librarian by Denise Swanson

The Blurb :

There’s no place like Scumble River at Christmastime, and this year, school psychologist Skye Denison has twice as much to celebrate—and to do. In addition to the usual holiday frenzy, Skye’s wedding to police chief Wally Boyd is less than a week away—that is, if the groom isn’t too busy working to attend. The town’s sexy new librarian, Yvonne Osborn, has just been murdered, and the list of suspects is piling up faster than late fees on an overdue book.

Yvonne’s strict sense of right and wrong annoyed some townspeople and infuriated others. Did her high standards lead to her death? Skye is distracted by worries about what havoc the crazy Dooziers will wreak on her wedding day and whether she’ll fit into her dress. But Skye can’t afford to leave any page unturned because unless she works quickly to expose the scheming killer, her happy ending may be put on permanent hold.…

My Thoughts :

I did take a little break from the series but that was mainly due to Christmas and not having any time to listen to an audio book.  However this sixteenth installment was easy to listen to while relaxing the last few days and it was great to finally get this far into the story.   Murder of a Stacked Librarian is essentially the book any fan of the series has been waiting for.  Skye is getting married and it is obvious to anyone who has read any of the books that not even her wedding will save her from a murder mystery to solve.  The only twist is that she didn't find the body this time!

Of course her Groom is on the case and Skye is determined to help him solve the murder so he can get to the altar in time and go on their Honeymoon.  With her preparations for the wedding taking up a lot of her time, Skye, finds herself torn but this time around she is definitely pre-occupied and not as intense as usual.

The plot was, as always, good and it was nice to see the couple finally tie the knot.  I couldn't believe that Skye didn't put two and two together and figure out what was coming in regards to her Honeymoon but I am sure it will be a great story!  I am certain it will be the topic of the next installment.

A great series that I am enjoying immensely.  I love the audio versions and only have two more to listen to and then I will be up to date.  Yes!  I have them both on my Audible app reading to listen to so expect an end to my Scumble River Mystery addiction soon!  However it will most likely mean that I will find another series to get addicted to!

I love how enthusiastic you are over this series! Glad this one was better again, and that they did get married at last.
