Boo Hiss

After my last book, I needed a picker upper and why not go with a cozy read. I was lucky to find the next installment the Boo series. It's just one of those series that make me smile and laugh.

Here's the blurb for Boo Hiss by Rene Gutteridge:
When a soccer field complex springs to life seemingly overnight in the sleepy community of Skary, Indiana, and the local coffee shop begins offering computer access along with its suddenly overpriced beverages, goosebumps start popping up all over town. Has soccer mom Katelyn Downey hatched a diabolic plot to turn their slow-paced town into a den of hip suburban iniquity–or is this the perfect solution to the community’s financial woes?

Even as concerned residents take sides over their town’s future, many are dealing with changes of a more personal nature. Novelist Wolfe Boone can’t seem to find the right niche for his post?—horror writing efforts, and his new bride Ainsley–known for executing complicated events with penache and perfection–is bewildered by her inability to control something as seemingly simple as scheduling a pregnancy. Frustration turns to envy when her wacky friend Melb discovers, to her utter terror, that she and husband Oliver are expecting a baby.

Just what the doctor ordered! It was light and funny and t definitely made me smile. I'm this close to moving to Skary, Indiana! I can't get enough...

Lots is happening in Skary: lots of new businesses opening (or changing!), the new theater group is getting ready to put on a play, Wolfe who's suffering from writer's block is willing to try anything, a rare two headed snake is on the lose and a shady character is introduced. And it seems like the Sheriff is falling in love...

Loved it!

How come I don't know about this series? It sounds like one I'd like.

I "discovered" it by accident. I got the first book in a trade bag, but been putting it off. I wish I started reading the series long before now...

Thanks for stopping by Wandeca Reads, stacybuckeye. :) Hope you can find the books.

Happy reading!
