This is part of a mystery series called "A Cat in the Stacks" featuring library board member, archivist and library volunteer Charlie Harris and his thirty-six pound Maine Coon cat Diesel.
Two local older ladies An'gel and Dickce Ducote, also on the library board are having another instance in a long-standing disagreement with another library board member, this time over where to hold this year's fundraising gala. Charlie tries to stay out of these as both he and Diesel dislike disagreements.
But it does seem like the one older woman, Vera, has no shortage of enemies. When Vera turns up dead at the gala, held at the Ducote sisters large house, the sheriff seems to suspect the only witness and Charlie is asked to help get to the bottom of things.
We are introduced to Charlie's lady friend, as well as his two children and their friends, as well as Charlie's boarder Stewart.
The deputy has a personal interest in the case since the witness is her mother, and Charlie's housekeeper. Lots of false trails and intrigue and some family skeletons that emerge.
Despite the presence of cats and libraries and a decent plot, the book didn't grab me and I won't be going out of my way for more of the series.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
