Most enjoyable and I liked the way the mystery and the murders built up to the denouement.This is the seventh of the Cat in the Stacks mysteries and the first one I've read. Librarians, books, cats and a preoccupation with meals? What's not to like? The Southern American flavour is very evident.My only beef really is with the cover of this large print edition,cute and attractive as it is. Charlie's cat Diesel is a Maine Coon cat; a very large long-haired tabby, not a sleek black and white model.
