This fast-paced cozy has it all -- intriguing characters, a compelling mystery and a touch of romance. Readers will connect with Skye Denison, an intelligent, likable protagonist whose education as a psychologist aids her in solving mysteries.

Scumble River, Ill., school
psychologist Skye has agreed to help Margot Avanti discover who's trying to sabotage her efforts to open a new spa. In exchange, Skye and her friend Trixie will receive a free weekend stay at the spa, which is filled with interesting characters, from Skye's over-protective mother, May, to former model Esme Gates and
her stepdaughter, Whitney.

While spending Thanksgiving weekend at the spa eating only healthful foods, Skye finds a murder victim submerged in one of the mud baths. As Skye attempts to discover the identity of the murderer, she must face some decisions in her personal life. Should she reconcile with boyfriend Simon or move on and start dating sexy chief of police Wally Boyd? (Signet, Apr., 256 pp., $6.99)
