"This is a smart, fun book with lots of twists and a wry humor, making it the perfect Halloween book you can read late into the night and not have nightmares from."
“This fun cozy paranormal mystery provides a unique look at the investigative process when one of the sleuths has been distilled down to bare bones—literally [...] The characters are fun and the wacky situations escalate nicely to the exciting climax.”
“Leigh Perry does a marvelous job utilizing the humorous aspects to full effect as there are more than a few laugh-out-loud moments. However, the sense of family togetherness is what truly makes THE SKELETON HAUNTS A HOUSE perfect [...] each and every aspect of THE SKELETON HAUNTS A HOUSE is a true delight.”
“Sid and Georgia are an amazing duo. They complement each other very well and part of the reason why I love original and creative cozy-mysteries such as this one."

“A haunted house full of creepy gimmicks and crazy talented scare actors, murder, and a skeleton that walks, talks and solves crimes […] This is probably the most perfect Halloween cozy setup ever written.”
“The perfect mystery to cozy up with on Halloween or any other time of the year.”
“Sid and McHades Hall, the light touch of the Scooby-Doo costumes, and the carnival, are all perfect for a Halloween mystery. Actually, though, THE SKELETON HAUNTS A HOUSE, will be a treat, not a trick, any time of year.”
Lesa’s Book Critiques
"Leigh Perry is a wonderful author. Not only does she pen an awesome mystery, but she makes you forget that one of the lead characters is dead and a skeleton, even though it’s of course mentioned in the story many times. She has given a personality and a soul to a walking stack of bones and it works!”
“I will come right out and say it – I love Sid! The concept of a “living” skeleton as a main character should not work, but it does, delightfully so [...] THE SKELETON HAUNTS A HOUSE, and the entire Family Skeleton Mystery series for that matter, is a fun-filled, action-packed read that engrosses the reader from the first page to the last. Highly recommended!”
“If you like quirky cozy mysteries, you’ve got to try the Family Skeleton series by Leigh Perry.”
“One of the freshest and original voices in the subgenre of paranormal mystery.”
“Sid (he likes to think of himself as Sherlock Bones) and Georgia come through in the end, of course, and there’s a lot of fun (and a bit of romance) to be had along the way. Check it out.”
