A quick fun read for relaxing set in Eastern British Columbia and garden background. Doren had been a trophy wife who had been cast out from wealthy husband with out a settlement. Her Grandmother invites Doreen to live in the family home while she goes to a retirement home.  She leaves a yellow cat, Goliath and blue gray parrot, Thaddeus with house. Doreen has a dog, Mugs. The animals added much humor to the series and this is the ninth book. Doreen is interest in cold cases and one leads to another cold case to solve. Corporal Mack Moreau is helping her to live like people both as the law and a friend

The book covers a serial fire bug, a gun found in the neighbor’s garden and Doreen is sure Steve threw it there when she chased from her garden. Steve is Penny’s boy friend and is twisting the facts about Penny making Doreen, the guilty party and Penny, the victim. Doreen finds a secret room in the house and it contains boxes that appear to come a some young girl’s hope chest. There is no identification to boxes except a 18 hundred newspaper. These two themes are brought together as one. I am looking forward to next book. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
