One thought on “The Skeleton Takes a Bow

  1. James

    4 stars to Leigh Perry s The Skeleton Takes a Bow, the second in her Family Skeleton cozy mystery series With autumn beginning last week, I decided to focus my next few weeks on books with Halloween or Thanksgiving themes, beautiful fall scenery and the quaint, mysterious New England small town appeal After also having a chance to connect with the author via social media, I moved up this book on my list and happily dived in over the weekend Due to a little confusion surrounding the reveal at the [...]

    It s too bad Sid is fictional I think I have a crush on a skeleton DKudos to the author for a unique, interesting cozy mystery Leigh Perry actually makes a skeleton somehow seem believable, lol

  3. Melodie

    These books are silly, but fun Sid the skeleton is totally over the top, but you ll get than a few laughs from this one

  4. Kevin

    I love this series so far, the heroine is terrific, her daughter is smart and geeky and Sid is perfect as Yorick view spoiler It was terrific the way the author weaved the murder accusation by Sid as Yorick into the play, just as Hamlet did Also the warmer colder trick was well thought out, when every other mystery would use some tech trick, like tracking a phone ect hide spoiler

  5. Karen

    If you have not yet read this series you need to add it to your to be read pile While yes this is a paranormal cozy it doesn t read like one, in fact Sid, the Skeleton feels like such a real person He is so much then just a skeleton who walks and talks He is a best friend and protector along with being a member of the family He is funny and intuitive, curious and helpful In this book Skeleton Takes A Bow, Sid is even an actor There is no one quite like Sid, which makes him even endearing This [...]

    Skeleton takes a bow finds adjunct professor Georgia Thackery even further immersed in the hell that is known as academia When skeleton Sid overhears a murder at Madison s high school, Georgia enters the ego stroking world of high school politics The connections she makes, however, aren t all politicalme are serendipidous and lead her down a dangerous path and towards a murderer I love how Georgia is able to navigate in this cutthroat scholarly world, including dealing with the sharks that are t [...]

  7. Sallee

    This book was amusing in that what I feel is the most important character is Sid the skeleton It seemed to me that the beginning was slow starting but then picked up speed in the story line The idea of a skeleton as a sleuth and family member with Georgia Tucker, an adjunct professor and her daughter Madison, a high school student made this trio a treat.

  8. Debbie Lester

    Leigh Perry brings readers the second book in her Family Skeleton Mystery series, The Skeleton Takes a Bow This series takes the old saying, skeleton s in the closet to a new level Sid, the walking, talking skeleton is a remarkable character Readers who take the time to embrace new ideas of what a character can and should be, will love this one Perry s writing has paranormal elements, good old fashioned sleuthing and a wry sense of humor This is a book and series readers won t soon forget What I [...]

    After only two books, Leigh Perry s Family Skeleton mystery series has become one of my favorite series The Thackerys may have an unusual family, but don t mess with any of them If you mess with one, you mess with all of them In The Skeleton Takes a Bow, the family love and humor are forefront in an enjoyable mystery.Sid, the family skeleton, and Georgia Thackery s daughter, Madison, hatch a plot to include Sid in one of Madison s high school activities, the production of Hamlet They convince Ge [...]

    Skeleton Takes A Bow is the second book in the A Family Skeleton Mystery series.No bones about it, but Sid once again has most of the good lines in this book.Georgia Thacker s daughter, Madison, has a role in her high schools production of Hamlet Madison is able to convince her mother to let her take Sid s skull to school to use as a prop in the play One day Madison forgets to bring Sid home and the next day he tells Georgia that he heard what he thinks was a murder in the schools auditorium Aft [...]

    Georgia has reluctantly agreed to let Sid, her best friend the skeleton, star in the play at her daughter s high school Okay, star might be the wrong word since Sid s skull is playing the part of Yorick in Hamlet Either way, he s excited to get out of the house However, when he is accidently left at the school overnight, he hears a murder With no body, the police won t take Georgia seriously Can Sid and Georgia track down the killer when they don t know who the victim is This is a fun dip into t [...]

  12. Michael Brown

    Forgot all about this one This is a quirky series about a house full of educators at a small New England college who happen to have a live in skeleton Sid the skeleton is a major player as one sister who does not live at home any has little interest in while the other one and her daughter just dote on the bag of bones The parents accept the weirdness and in fact relish in it.With a spooky computer geek at their disposal 24 7 mysteries are easier to unravel as Sid just either digs into the web or [...]

  13. Kelly

    A great addition to an amazing series Seriously, I adore Sid and this series It was so much fun to see how they solved the murder when there was no evidence that a murder even took place There were a few parts that were laugh out loud funny, and I had to set the book down until I could stop laughing.

  14. Aya

    A Skeleton Family Mystery 2Set a few months after the previous book Georgia s parents are still on vacation, so she, her daughter Madison, and Sid, are still house sitting Author does a good job describing the trials and tribulations of being an adjunct professor as well as a single parent Another solid mystery story.

  15. Jenni Schell

    Having enjoyed the first book in this series, I was really looking forward to this book coming out I was NOT disappointed What a great mystery I hope Sid is back for very soon.

  16. Terrie Moran

    IYou can read my entire review on Criminal Element but I ended it with Every cozy lover will revel in The Skeleton Takes A Bow.

  17. Pam

    Sid gets a part in the school play, Hamlet, as Yorick Madison accidentally leaves Sid s skull at school and he witnesses a murder by hearing the players Georgia leaves a tip on the hotline but the wrong body is found, unless there is a connection Georgia, Sid, and Madison are determined to find out Even Deborah gets in on the act when Georgia is threatened The production of Hamlet reveals a killer, but Madison and Sid pay the price.

  18. Roberta

    I read very few paranormal mysteries because the author often cheats allowing the detective to get information in ways like being psychic or invisible, for example that ruin the book for me Sid has both abilities and limitations that still allow me to enjoy the story Gotta say Leigh Perry has a handle on the politics that plague adjunct faculty as well as what apparently goes on at the high school level I wasn t there long, thank goodness.

  19. Kathryn Brown

    The most ridiculous crimefighting yet from a cozy mystery author A cat maybe A mystical aunt sure But an animated family skeleton is just too far fetched for me I kept reading because I was hoping for an explanation, but nope And there was no explanation about the bizarre bones as swearing habit they all had I didn t read the first one, but I shouldn t have had to to find out the explanation.

  20. Helen

    The whole family Skeleton thing is pure fantasy, but I love the characters and the plots so far in this series Some good development in the characters met in the first book occurs, and the plot, set in high school and college is realistic, apart from the skeleton s role, which adds fun to the story.

  21. Cindy

    Entertaining read Good strong follow up to the first book Recommended if you like light mysteries with some definite laughs along the way Sid the skeleton is quite a talented collection of bones

  22. April

    I love this series It s such a fun read and I really care about the characters While reading this book, I couldn t WAIT for every moment I had to get back to it and enjoyed the feeling of looking forward to it Those are the kinds of books I love to read Very cute and fun read.

  23. Scott L.

    Fun read Not much of a mystery as I had the plot figured out about half way through the book Still, the interactions between the characters one of them being the skeleton of the title was enjoyable As a cozy, this book is good just don t expect a good mystery when reading it.
