"File M for Murder"

Athena College's new writer in residence is native son and playwright Connor Lawton, known for his sharp writing- and sharper tongue. After an unpleasant encounter, librarian Charlie Harris heads home to a nice surprise: his daughter Laura is subbing for another Athena professor this fall semester. It's great news until he hears who got her the job: her old flame, Connor Lawton...

Fearing competition for Connor's affections, one of his admirers tries to drive Laura out of town. And then, before Connor finishes the play he is writing, he is murdered- and Laura is the prime suspect. Knowing she's innocent, Charlie and his faithful sidekick, Diesel, follow Connor's cluttered trail of angry lovers, bitter enemies, and intriguing research to find the true killer before his daughter is forever cataloged under "M"- for murderer.

My Thoughts...

I always know I can depend on James to satisfy me when I am in a cozy frame of mind. And he didn't disappoint me this time. He hit another ball out of the park with this one. It is Book #3 in the "A Cat In The Stacks Mystery" series.
He is now on my list of favorite authors, and if you like cozy mysteries, James books are the best....there is humor and plenty of Southern charm to go around...Anyone for a glass of Sweet Tea? This cozy mystery makes for a leisurely and enjoyable read.

I enjoyed it so much that I awarded it 4 "Hair Ball Kitty" stars. I own this book and it is a part of my personal library.
