Publisher's Summary

And the best performance as a skull goes to...
After years of hiding in the Thackery family house, Sid the skeleton is delighted to finally have his moment in the spotlight. He's starring in a high school production of Hamlet. Well, not so much starring in as being a prop. At least part of him has a part - he's using his head to play Yorick of "Alas, poor Yorick" fame. Every day, Georgia Thackery's daughter, Madison, who's also in the play, brings in his skull, and every night, she takes him home....
Until one night when he's accidentally left at school - and hears the sounds of someone being murdered. But the next day, there's no body and no one seems to be missing.
Sid is not a numbskull - he knows what he heard. Georgia thinks he imagined it - until a week later when a body is found. Now Georgia and Sid will both need to keep their heads as they stick their necks out and play sleuth to catch the conscience of a killer....

Great, Lighthearted Fun.

This is the second book in the skeleton mystery stories. Very, very tongue in cheek in its concepts, but very enjoyable as a murder mystery novel.

This is just the right kind of lighthearted novel that you may wish to read if you are a murder mystery fan. It is not overly taxing but it is not by any means a simplistic tail. You will enjoy it immensely just as a relaxing read especially, if you have just finished a big novel and still wish to read but do not want to bog yourself down in A complex narratives.

I would however, advise that you read the books in order, so this is book 2, you really need to read book 1. Even though it will not be a great challenge to read them out of sequence, you will receive all the backstory if you read them in order.

The Skeleton does a Sleepy Hollow

Enjoyed this even more than the first book. The narration was good and the characters are really starting to flesh out (pun intended). As murder mysteries go this is fairly light hearted but covers some serious topics. I managed to figure out the murderer a lot sooner than in the first book, but it was still satisfying. Bring on book 3
