events unfold, Charlie’s natural curiosity and logical
mind work together to help him try to catch the killer. After
another person is killed, Charlie needs to think fast before
the killer adds him to the kill list.
are so many things I love about this series. The laid-back
pace, the southern charm, Diesel the cat, and the relationships
of people and the animals as they continue to grow. This is
a book full of heart, and I highly recommend this latest Charlie
and Diesel mystery to mystery readers young and old. This
is a fine read as a stand-alone, but I think there is more
enjoyment to be had if you read all of the previous books.
Each of the books in this series has pride of place on my
bookshelves, and they would be a wonderful addition to any
of other titles in this series
