The Skeleton Makes a Friend (A Family Skeleton Mystery)
by Leigh Perry
The Skeleton Makes a Friend is a humorous cozy mystery with delightful characters. Sid is one of those characters that you cannot help but love. He is a skeleton with a quirky personality and a zest for life.
~The Avid Reader
I love the inclusion of a paranormal element, and author Leigh Perry has demonstrated real creativity in creating an ambulatory, active, talking, will-power operating, texting, online gaming, online researching, skeleton. Yes, I kid you not. This is not the plastic skeleton you see at Halloween, nor the real type in Medical School Anatomy Labs. Sid is for real, and nearly perfect.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
Georgia, Sid, and Madison are all fantastic, and I loved spending time with them . . . And they help drive a great plot.
Ms. Perry has written a delightful mystery starring two of my all-time favorite characters . . . Woo Hoo! I am excited to add this book to my Best Reads of 2018 list.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Plot twists and secrets galore!
Ready for a light-hearted, slightly paranormal mystery? The Family Skeleton series by Leigh Perry might be for you. This series is so unique, and the wise-cracking investigating skeleton never gets in the way of the mystery, but only adds to the fun.
~The Book’s the Thing
This is a high recommendation from me… I really love the caliber of the writing, characters and plot. This one has a witty approach to the reason why the victim died, and I can’t say anything more without giving away the plot.
~This Is My Truth Now
The mystery is puzzling and exciting. The suspense and danger rise and the victims and suspects grow in number. The final rescue and reveal scene will thrill you.
~Here’s How It Happened
Author Leigh Perry has once again outdone herself. Just when I think I’ve read the best this series has to offer a new installment comes along and blows the others out of the water!
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
Another great installment to this great cozy mystery series!. .The skeleton is a nice touch that really sets this series apart. Great for fans of cozy with a touch of the paranormal. I really liked it . . .
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
This had been an interesting read, let me say I am not used to reading books where one of the main characters is a skeleton that talks and moves, but lucky for Georgia, even if sometimes he is the one that puts her in danger, he is ready to save her in the moments of need.
The premise is unique, the books are entertaining and the characters are one of a kind . . . I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.
This is one that drew me in when I saw the cover and then once opening it and turning the pages I found I was smitten.
~My Reading Journeys
AN EASY FIVE STAR READ.
Skeleton Makes a Friend is the fifth book in Family Skeleton Mystery series. I haven’t read any of the other books, but you better believe I’ll be going back to do so now!
~The Layaway Dragon
This book hooked me right from the start and not only did I love the characters, but the plot and mystery were great too!

Georgia Thackery is feeling pretty good about her summer job teaching at prestigious Overfeld College, and she’s renting a rustic cabin right by a lake for herself, her daughter, Madison, and her best friend, Sid the Skeleton. Together again, the trio are enjoying the quiet when a teenager named Jen shows up looking for her friend. Georgia doesn’t recognize the name, but she learns that the person Jen was looking for is actually Sid.
Sid reveals that he and Jen are part of a regular online gaming group that formed locally, and one of their members has gone missing. Sid admits that he might have bragged about his investigative prowess, enough so that Jen wants him to find their missing player. Given that Sid doesn’t have many friends offline—none, really, unless you count the Thackery family—Georgia agrees to help him search. They manage to discreetly enlist Jen, who lives in town, and follow the clues to… a dead buddy.
Now they’ve got a killer on their hands. Probing the life of Sid’s friend, they realize a lot is wrong both on campus and in the seemingly quaint town, and someone doesn’t want them looking deeper.
