    1 thought on “The Skirt Man”

    1. PROTAGONIST: Annie Bly, small town reporterRATING: 2.5There’s something about a small town that seems to appeal to people who are a little more quirky than average. That’s certainly the case in Killdeer, New York. One of the most eccentric inhabitants is an older man named Morgan Mason who is commonly referred to as “The Skirt Man”. His nickname is derived from the fact that he wears long skirts rather than trousers. His mode of transportation is a tractor, and he is quite a sight to see [...]

    2. A unique character in a small town draws attention. He is an old farmer. He has a loyal dog, drives a tractor, stutters, and wears a skirt. Why? No one knows. The Skirt Man has a few enemies, but more people love him, even though they don’t know why. When he is found burned to death in his house, State Trooper Sebastian Bly, his wife Annie, and her brother, fire investigator Billy Nightingale track down clues, learn about local feuds and foibles, and discover what a remarkable man he really wa [...]

    4. This book was slow for me to get into. I had a hard time wanting to keep reading it, but once I got into the story some, it got better. By the end, I cared about the characters, and I even got a little teary. It's a good story, but I would have liked it if it was more interesting from the beginning. Too much time was wasted talking about Merry, and not enough time was spent on Sonny and Moe. It was ok, but could have been better.

    5. Shelly Reuben weaves a complex tale of interesting characters (with intriguing names), fire investigation and wonderful vocabulary (one character is described as having a head shaped like a vitamin) into a fascinating story. My regret is that she does not have all that many mysteries in print and I now think I have read them all.

    6. There was a lot of characters thrown at you which made me have to really concentrate while reading this book. The first half was very slow going and I kept pushing my way thru. I liked Annie and Sebastian- they were a great team. This story could have used a few sparks or maybe another fire or two to really get the blood pumping instead of fizzling out.

    7. I really enjoyed this book was one of those books i just opened and started reading, not knowing at all what it was about.i was pleasantly surprisede writing was great, really flowed wellso characters were relatable and believable.I'm glad i discovered this book and plan to read more by this author.

    8. Most of the book was interesting, actually. I just thought the ending was lame. If I was in a different mood, I might give this more stars. As it is, I think 2.5 is about right.
