It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I hope to start reading this one soon.  I love this series.  This is book #4.

First Chapter

"Charlie Harris, what are you doing hiding in the kitchen?  Stiffen up that spine, young man, and get yourself in there where you're needed."

From 56% on my Kindle...

I tried to settle down to work while I waited for her, but to no avail.  My brain simply couldn't focus on regular tasks.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Everyone in Athena, Mississippi, knows Charlie Harris, the librarian with a rescued Maine coon cat named Diesel. He's returned to his hometown to immerse himself in books, but when a feud erupts between the town's richest ladies, the writing on the wall spells murder.

The Ducote sisters are in a tiff with Vera Cassity over the location of this year's library fundraising gala, and Charlie would rather curl up in a corner than get into the fray. It seems everyone—even his housekeeper Azalea—has it in for Vera. And at the gala, she gives them good reason, with a public display of rancor aimed at anyone who gets in her way.

But those bitter words wind up being her last. When Charlie discovers Azalea standing over Vera's dead body, it's up to him—with a little help from Diesel—to clear Azalea's name, and catch a killer before his last chapter is finished.

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. I love this series, too. I'm up to date, but I'm jealous you have more adventures with Charlie and Diesel to enjoy.

  2. A friend of mine also enjoys this series, I need to try it. And I could do with lighter reads, lol.
    Mine is in French this time. With free copies available, and credits to earn an egift card:
