"A health spa complete with tofu turkey and "Dress for Sexcess" lectures is the last place school psychologist Skye Denison wants to spend Thanksgiving. But when her best friend, Trixie Frayne, convinces her to take a complimentary weekend at the new Scumble River Spa, Skye accepts her fate and prepares to be slathered, wrapped and roasted. Then an annoying quartet that includes both Skye's mom and her ex-boyfriend's mother impulsively joins her for a girls-only holiday, and Skye wonders just how bad things can get. She soon finds out — when she's confronted with treatments only a masochist would enjoy, a diet plan fit for a Barbie doll, and a troublesome trespasser searching for a cache of jewels supposedly hidden in the spa seventy years ago. Worst of all, a famous former model turns up dead in the Miracle Mud bath. It looks like no one will be leaving the spa until Skye can identify which of the eccentric guests, pesky local protesters or sneaky treasure hunters is also a killer deserving of special treatment — in the county jail."--

As well as this being a good murder mystery, it was so refreshing to see the heroine as a mature woman with generous proportions hooking herself the hot guy. The heroine Skye is over thirty, with more than a couple extra pounds on her frame, as so many women can relate to. Yet she is confident and sexy and comfortable in her own skin. We see enough of the petite Barbie doll women in books. Time for a real woman to come to the forefront and get business taken care of. Bravo Ms.Swanson!

This series is really a good read. I like the characters quite a bit....quirky family and certainly not all lovable.
