Summary
  • Questions abound in James's gripping 10th Cat in the Stacks mystery (after Claws for Concern). Widowed librarian Charlie Harris isn't looking forward to the Christmas open house his flirtatious new neighbor, Gerry Albritton, has invited him to attend. But even though she has offended half the town of Athena, Miss., everyone shows up at Gerry's party out of curiosity. Who is this woman who claims to have grown up in Athena, but no one remembers? At least one guest knows more than he or she is letting on, for Gerry collapses and dies, poisoned at her own party. Charlie doesn't relish getting involved in the investigation, but he can't stay on the sidelines. As Charlie looks into Gerry's past, he discovers a tangle of tragic family secrets that have been hidden for decades. Meanwhile, Charlie and his Maine Coon cat, Diesel, are also dealing with a box of five lively kittens that someone left on his doorstep. James has crafted a warmhearted Christmas story that combines seamlessly with a satisfying mystery
  • December twenty-fifth is right around the corner, and Charlie Harris is doing his best to show some peace and goodwill toward his nosy neighbor Gerry Arbitron, a real estate agent who seems to have designs on his house (and maybe on him, as well). Charlie's also preparing for his first Christmas as a grandfather. When he finds a box on his doorstep with five kittens inside and a note begging him to keep them safe, Charlie and Diesel welcome the tiny felines into the Harris household just as Gerry decides it is time to throw a lavish holiday party-- and winds up dead at her very own party. Will the special season be ruined by a sinister scrooge? -- Adapted from back cover
