I recommend Careless Whiskers by Miranda James. This light read is part of the fun “A Cat in the Stacks Mystery” series. I have enjoyed all of this series, and Careless Whiskers is another great read. Charlie Harris and his Maine Coon cat Diesel are back on the case after an incident at the Athena College theater department’s latest production. - from CJ
