Read Dead in the Water (Welcome Back to Scumble River, #1) Online Free - The first book in a brand new series featuring New York Times bestselling author Denise Swanson's beloved Scumble River setting and characters, Dead in the Water is a gripping mystery that won't let you go until you've turned the last page.

A twister, a kidnapping, and a murder--oh my! Scumble River may never be the same.

For school psychologist Skye Denison, there's certainly no place like home. When a violent tornado devastates her small hometown of Scumble River, she can't see how the community will ever recover--especially since town councilman Zeke Lyons appears to have perished in the twister.

But things get even worse for Skye when her police chief husband, Wally, disappears in the midst of investigating Zeke's death, and evidence arises pointing to foul play. Did Zeke really die in the storm, or was he murdered? And could Wally be next on the criminal's hit list?

This was an enjoyable and easy read. The characters were likable and the mystery kept me guessing. It's interesting how evil can be hidden beneath such a benign looking surface. I would definitely read more in this series. Reviewed for Affaire de Coeur magazine.

Following a publisher change, the series is having a restart/reboot. The author explains in the foreward...

My first book by this author and I enjoyed it. Although the book uses characters established in another series, I was never lost. There were only a few places where I didn't understand a reference but nothing important to the story. I will be looking for more books by this author.

**I voluntarily reviewed this ARC** That was a whirlwind of emotions. Before I start my review, I have to share a quick, bizarre coincidence. When I started reading this book, I only made it a couple chapters in before bedtime. Well, I woke up the next morning to a tornado warning! We were lucky a...

Dead in the Water is the debut book in Denise Swanson’s Welcome Back to Scumble River series. The storyline is well plotted and the well-rounded characters are relatable. There is no graphic violence or adult situations in this book; however, there is some adult language. The story moves along at...
