"It's a pleasure for Swanson's readers to welcome back her Scumble River characters, even though she throws them into danger from the first chapter to the last. A tornado, a corpse and a kidnapping make life in Scumble River challenging for Skye Denison-Boyd as she awaits the birth of her first child, but fans of Swanson's series know she can handle it all. Swanson's strongly drawn characters and vivid descriptions make this welcome return of her Scumble River series a pleasure to read." - Sheila Connolly, New York Times bestselling author of Buried in a Bog
"Rejoice, Scumble River fans! Skye and Wally and the whole gang are back-and Denise Swanson proves once again that she is among the top writers of the genre. With more twists and turns than a tornado-a real tornado!-Dead in the Water is fast-paced and fun, with a smart, savvy protagonist, some truly sinister villains, a suspenseful plot, and a delightfully satisfying ending. I can't wait to visit Scumble River again!" - Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author
