Another good outing in The Cat in The Stacks Mystery series. I love the main character, Charlie and Diesel, his cat. In this book, several recurring characters feature prominently, Sean, Laura, Stewart, Azalea and her daughter. The plot in this one is that Azalea is accused of murder and Charlie is recruited by her concerned daughter to help clear her name. There is more of Charlie’s work as an archivist involved in this mystery and it is really interesting. I have been reading this series out of order because my library only had two of them. I will definitely order the other two to finish the series.
There is romance in this book, but not the traditional love triangle that you see a lot of in cozy mysteries. It is also a well done romance and I quite enjoyed that sub plot. I really can’t see any negatives with this book. Well written cozy, interesting plot, great characters, and nothing too far fetched to distract the reader from the mystery.
