A Skeleton in the Family by Leigh Perry

leighAbout the book :Moving back into her parents’ house with her teenage daughter had not been Georgia Thackery’s “Plan A.” But when she got a job at the local college, it seemed the sensible thing to do. So she settled in and began reconnecting with old friends.

Including Sid. Sid is the Thackery family’s skeleton. He’s lived in the house as long as Georgia can remember, although no one, including Sid, knows exactly where he came from and how he came to be a skeleton.

Sid walks, he talks, he makes bad jokes, he tries to keep Georgia’s dog from considering him a snack.  And he manages to persuade Georgia to let him leave the house. But when she takes him to an anime convention—disguised as a skeleton, of course—he sees a woman who triggers memories of his past.

Now he is determined to find out how he died—with Georgia’s help.  But their investigation may uncover a killer who’s still alive and well and bad to the bone…

My Review: Georgia returns and moves back into her parents home. With a job at the college, she is closer to her friends and family. Georgia has one secret – there really is a skeleton in her closet. His name is Sid. Sid knows what happened to him and how he became a walking, talking skeleton. He’s been apart of the family for a long time. Georgia and Sid grew up together.  Can Georgia’s daughter learn of the family secret? Will Sid become her friend to. Georgia takes Sid out after pleading with her, Sid sees someone who reminds him of his past, will Sid enable Georgia on the pursuit to find out just what happened to him? Or will Sid get himself in trouble? After all he is the skeleton in her closet.

No bones about it everyone will wish they had a Sid.
