Farley is coming to the rescue of her sister Chloe. She will
be taking over her job at the Haklo Foundation in Craddock,
OK for several weeks while Chloe and her boyfriend Leland
go to Tahiti on vacation. It will be a good change for Nela
who recently lost both her job and her fiancé. Chloe
has set it up for Nela to have use of an apartment while she
is working at the Haklo Foundation. She will also be taking
care of Jugs the Cat. It seems the owner, Miss Grant, has
recently passed away. Nela has the ability to know what cats
are thinking. The cat implies that Miss Grant was murdered.
She fell down a flight of stairs – but where is the
skateboard Jugs insists she tripped over?
is a break- in her first night in Miss Grant’s apartment.
The desk is ransacked, but an expensive handbag is not touched.
Inside the handbag is a diamond necklace. The intruder is
gone before the police arrive - they think Nela left the door
the staff seems to think that Chloe is behind the pranks and
vandalism that have been happening since she was hired. This
includes the theft of a diamond necklace that is owned by
the head of the foundation!
to ponder: Who stole the diamond necklace? Will Nela prove
her sister is innocent of the pranks and vandalism? Was Miss
Grant really murdered?
With the assortment of characters that work at the Haklo Foundation,
Carolyn Hart has given us plenty of suspects. I couldn’t
put this book down until I finished it – I had to find
out what happened next. This is totally different from her
Death on Demand series. I am hoping that this will be the
first of many in this delightful new series.
