Book #3 in the Family Skeleton Mystery series: What holiday could bring more warmth to a skeleton's chest cavity than Halloween? And when you're a living skeleton who's not supposed to be seen outside the house, it's a welcome chance to get some fresh air and rub bony elbows with people. That's why Sid doesn't mind wearing a full-body dog suit and going as Scooby-Doo along with Georgia Thackery's Velma to the Halloween Howl. Sid can't wait to go through the haunted house - but he gets rattled for real when a genuine dead body is discovered. Trapped inside as the police quickly seal off the crime scene, Sid makes no bones about dropping the dog suit and posing as an actual skeleton. This murder is a skull scratcher, but as long as Sid is on the inside, he might as well case the joint to figure out who used the cover of darkness to commit the perfect crime....

My Review: This is another fun story in a fun mystery series. I love Halloween, when I was a kid deciding what to dress up as for Halloween was one of my favorite things to do. I still want to know more about Sid the Skeleton, maybe in the next book more will be revealed.

This is such a fun series, I love Sid. In this go around, a body of a girl is found in a commercial haunted house and it's up to Sid, Georgia and Co to figure out who killed her and why, and the why is the most surprising of all. The killer is closer than Georgia and Co can believe. That's all I want to say about the plot, anything more would be spoilers.

If you've read the other books in the series, you know what to expect and won't be let down. This has a lot going for it. It has humor, great characters you can't help but to like and many plot twists that will keep the reader glued to the page.

In all honesty, I was sorry to see this end.

My thanks goes out to JennyC1230. Now this is going to eponine38/ Happy Reading my friend.

Loved this one, maybe even more than the first two in the series. And I'm so sorry to learn that there are no future installments - at least not yet. No mention on Leigh Perry's website either, but fingers crossed! I also learned that the author lives only a few miles away. Maybe I can go haunt her in person. :-)

Now to the book:
The haunted house known as the Halloween Howl was terrifying just by the description. I'm a wimp...don't think I'd ever go to anything like that. Never have. But it was a well-constructed plot, and I really have enjoyed the conflicted but basically caring relationship between Georgia and her sister Deborah.

[As Christmas is fast approaching, I'd like to include a song from the author's website; I Want a Bony Skeleton for Christmas]

Thanks again for sending this, buffyfan!
