THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
It is Christmas time Athena, Mississippi, Charlie Harris is excited as it is the first holiday he will be a Grandfather. A neighbor, Gerry Arbitron Christmas decorations are in poor taste and she is planning a neighborhood open-house in the 10th installment, During the party, Gerry collapsed and Charlie becomes involved with another death. Meanwhile, one morning the doorbell rang and Charlie and Diesel find a box with 5 kittens. The note attached asked him to keep the kittens saved he was going to drown them. Diesel's actions are surprising as he chooses to babysit the kittens. The story alternates between Charlies efforts to find the owner of the kittens, family affairs, and the death investigation to make a delightful tale. The ending is a surprise and brings a smile. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series. Disclosure: Many thanks to Berkley for a review copy. The opinions expressed are my own.
