Publisher's Summary

Charlie Harris has sworn off investigating murder and mayhem after a recent close call. Instead, he's delighted to cheer on his daughter, Laura, who's starring in a production of Careless Whispers. The theater department at Athena College is debuting the play written by a fledgling playwright with local connections, and Charlie's son-in-law, Frank Salisbury, will be calling the directorial shots. 

Laura is upset to learn that Luke Lombardi, an overbearing actor she knew from her time in Hollywood, will also be taking part in the production as a guest artist. Lombardi arrives with an entourage in tow and promptly proceeds to annoy everyone involved with the production. When he collapses and dies on stage after drinking from a glass Laura handed him, she becomes the chief suspect in his murder. 

Charlie knows his daughter is innocent, and he's not going to let anyone railroad his little girl. So, despite his intentions to put his amateur sleuthing days behind him, Charlie has to take center stage, and with Diesel's help, shine a spotlight on the real killer.

THE END?

Was a good mystery. I have read and enjoyed this series. I felt right away this must be the last book. Was to different than all the other stories. Diesel was rarely heard or seen. To much about the one daughter and no one else. Just was not as interesting or fun like all the others. What I liked so much about the series was Diesel's and all the other animals, family and friends interacting with each other. Happy Charley proposed. Hopefully happely ever after.
Thank you for the many wonderful hours I spent with these moral prayerful people. So refreshing to believe there are still family's like them!!!!!

Female narrator?

The was simplistic and hard to follow with so many false leads. Maybe because I started in the middle of a series, I felt lost, not able to recognize the characters when they appeared without much introduction. I was an hour into the first person narration before I realized that the narrator/protagonist was a man! No wonder because the performer was female! If it hadn’t been so miscast, it might not have been so confusing to follow.

interesting

Interesting story! The performance was very good. Ms. Bennett has a good range and is able to sound masculineif need be! characters also are well developed and I'm glad they have not been killed yet!

Cats & Crimes - what's not to like!

A great series (Cat in the Stacks) of which this is one of the later ones. I love the way you learn more about the main character, his family and friends with each book so they are Charlie and Diesel's life stories as well as mystery stories.
