Read A Review:

Sleeping Beauty is found dead on the stage at the high school. Lorelei Ingels is to be Sleeping Beauty in a play, but she's dead.

Skye has to deal with the morning students and help Chief of Police Walter Boyd discover the murderer. This isn't easy. Wally is upset with Skye. Skye had a crush on Wally when she was 15 and he was 23. They never dated. Recently he felt she betrayed his trust. This was made even worse because his wife, Darlene, betrayed his trust by leaving with another man.

Since Wally is so upset, Skye has to get information for this case through her mom, a police dispatcher, and Simon Reid, coroner and former boyfriend -- not a great situation either.

Lorelei and her sister, as well as Lorelei’s best friend are in beauty pageants. The parents are so in to this that there are stories abounding that Mrs. Ingels and Lorelei pulled many pranks so that the competition would be out. Of course, none of the pranks could be proven to have been done by them. Skye takes her 2 nieces to a couple pageants to see things first hand.

This book has many twists. The people are very believable and the book has a true small town flavor. I always look forward to the next book in this series. Can't wait to find out about Skye's next adventures and more about her love life, which is always in flux.
