(From the publisher):
Scumble River is celebrating its bicentennial in style - with historical reenactments, bingo, a coal-tossing tournament, and a Crazy Craft race. Serving as the guest of honor is none other than the town founder's great-great-grandnephew, Gabriel Scumble. But his visit turns out to be short-lived when Skye's students Frannie and Justin find him dead with a pickax protruding from his chest.
Meanwhile Skye's deceitful ex-fiance, Luc St. Amant, has appeared out of the blue, creating turmoil in her love life. Does the real danger lie in the chance that Luc will drive away the men in Skye's life... or in the possibility that there's a menacing connection between Luc's arrival and Gabriel Scumble's murder?
