A fine, charming book to cozy up with.

If you love cats, you will love this third book in the Cat in the stacks Mystery series. A compelling mystery with a lovable cat thrown into the mix. What more could you ask for? I loved it.

Although I'm fond of Charlie Harris and his enormous Maine coon cat, Diesel, this third book would have been better, in my opinion, if it had less petting of Diesel, and Diesel's warbling. Then it would have been an excellent long short story. The plot is good and the characters amusing.

    a charming read

    What a happy surprise for Charlie as his daughter, Laura, arrives for a visit that includes teaching at the local college. Laura’s visit is later marred when her ex-boyfriend is found dead and her life is threatened. This was a good read and I love the pace of this well-written story. I adore the relationship that Charlie has with his family and friends in this character-driven tale. I look forward to the next book in this enjoyably charming series.

    I love mysteries with cats and books so that makes this a pretty

    I love mysteries with cats and books so that makes this a pretty good read in the first place. Miranda James brings all of the family together this time which was a nice change. I mean the human family of course; not the feline one. Diesel is still the "aplha cat". However, he sure was "uncomfortable" and had to be petted on the head a lot. Almost began to seem like filler. Maybe that's why I felt like this was sort of a slow read. I was looking for the next book before I finished the last page though (won't be out until January 2013) so it had to have been a pretty good read.

    more from this reviewer

    Charlie Harris is back to work and meeting interesting people at

    Charlie Harris is back to work and meeting interesting people at the library enter Connor Lawton a pain in the rear playwright. Charlie also discovers his lovely daughter Laura is home to teach a semester at Athena College. When not long into her teaching career she finds Connor dead and herself the prime suspect, and the hidden secret to what is going on all sitting on a thumb drive. Will Charlie solve it in time or will his house go up in smoke.

    With everything from attacks on Laura Harris to letter bombs and attempted fires on the Harris household it’s up to the Harris Kid’s and boarders Stewart and Justin along with Dante, Diesel and Charlie to find out who’s out to get the Harris’s. I enjoyed this so much. Seeing Charlie with a new relationship starting and getting to see how the kids interact with their father and how they all show love to Dante and Diesel. A great cozy mystery I have fallen in love with. I especially love reading about Athena!
