Description

“Knock knock.”
“Who’s there?”

Nobody in Skary seems to know for sure…

It appears that everyone in Skary, Indiana, is having an identity crisis of epic proportions–including the town itself. Once known as the haunt of the world’s most popular horror writer, Wolfe “Boo” Boone, Skary started losing tourist business after Boo abruptly abandoned his career. Now the little town with the big marketing hook is up a creek–and on the brink of bankruptcy.

Meanwhile, the former best-selling author is hawking [or selling] cars and wondering, like the rest of the world, if he’ll ever write again. Yet even as Boo’s literary career gracelessly plummets, his fiancée, wholesome Ainsley Parker, is shooting to stardom as the media’s darling new domestic diva.

Weave in a dreaming bride with a bargain dress and a few too many pounds on her hips, an unconventional therapist who has Skary in his thrall, a depressed cat, a dogged busybody, and a horde of strange, ghostly figures traipsing in and out of the woods, and it’s easy to see why Skary is the quirkiest–and most charming–town around.

Praise For Boo Who

“Two weddings that might or might not take place, a gown four sizes too small, plans for one of the brides-to-be to become the new Martha Stewart, a town on the verge of bankruptcy–and just what's up with those owls? Rene Gutteridge has done it again! Just as she did in Boo, Rene takes the quirky, yet quite likeable, characters of Skary, Indiana, adds some even quirkier plot twists, tosses in some pop culture references, and mixes it all together for a fun read. Boo Who is definitely a good thing.”
–Nancy Kennedy, author of Move Over, Victoria–I Know the Real Secret and When He Doesn’t Believe

What a funny, happy, redemptive book. It was a joy to immerse myself in the town of Skary, Indiana, with its quirky, lovable, but very real people. I hope to make many more visits to Skary!
–Linda Hall, author of Steal Away and Chat Room

“Boo Who was a one-sitting read that kept me riveted with its stunning characterization.  Rene Gutteridge’s tightly-written novel wrapped humor, mystery and romance into a sumptuous feast I couldn’t put down.”
–Kristin Billerbeck, author of What a Girl Wants and She’s Out of Control
