A new author for me and the first in a new series. Cleo Mack has taken early retirement and moved to in Fairhope, Alabama. The town is friendly as most are newcomers. There is a retirement village called Harbor Village. Cleo excepted a part-time position in the area as activity director. 
While moving into an apartment Cleo learns that her ex-husband is the CEO of the corporation who owns the community. His current wife, Lee is the director. Cleo hadn't met or talk to him in over 20 years. He is the father of her daughter and delightful grandson. She adopt s a cat that was left by a previous renter and spends a lot of time looking for its names. A neighbor has a dog. The dislike director, Lee is found in the Village pool. It is determined later that she was murdered.  
Cleo is named acting director and she is not given any directions of how to run the department. Her first step is to become familiar with the community and she began to find something wrong but must spend the time to look It for the problem. What is her cat's name? How do the dos play into the tale? One of the employees has a litter of kittens and Cleo okays bringing the cats to the assist living building where they are a big hit. What is wrong at the Village? I highly recommend the book.
