One more interesting spin-off from Miranda James’ Cat in the Stacks series set in small college town, Athena, Mississippi. The DuCote sisters, the doyens of Athena, once again find themselves in the midst of murder. (They shouldn’t have hung around with Charlie Harris and Diesel, his Maine Coon!’-)
Anyway Hadley Partridge comes back to town 40 years after leaving abruptly. Evidently the intervening years have not dimmed his perception as a Missisippi Casanova.
The garden club ladies are lining up to see if he still has “it.” Then the bodies start stacking up.
Secrets and obsession set the stage for bad, bad, bad.
I usually don’t tattle but the copyeditor on this book evidently couldn’t keep the two brothers Hadley and Hamish straight. Some times Hadley became Hamish which was probably very disconcerting to him since his brother Hamish was dead! Oh, well… We all make mistakes!
