Athena College's new writer in residence is native son and playwright Connor Lawton, known for his sharp writing-and sharper tongue. After an unpleasant encounter, librarian Charlie Harris heads home to a nice surprise: his daughter Laura is subbing for another Athena professor. Unfortunately her old flame Connor Lawton got her the job.
But before Connor finishes his newest play, he's murdered - and Laura is the prime suspect. Charlie and his faithful cat, Diesel, follow Connor's cluttered trail to find the true killer before his daughter is forever catalogued under M...for murderer.

"Reall enjoying this series...."
I am working my way through this series and enjoying each new book. This is book #3, and I just downloaded #4. I have really come to like Charlie, Diesel, and their extended family. We met Stewart in the last book and I have come to really like him in this book. I had a Maine Coon for 20 years, and I can identify with a lot of Diesel's characteristics. There are only five audio books in this series, but I hope that there will be more in the future.
"Why a female narrator?"
I really want to like this series, but it ends up being too dry. One thing that bugs me is the choice to have a female reader for a male first person narration. Just because the author is female doesn't mean that it should be read by one.
"loved the book,but...."
The story is a good cozy mystery. The author does not dissappoint. The narrator did a good job, but somehow the female voice was offputting a bit. However still a great listen overall.
I think this will be the last book I read in this series. It was boring and flat. I don;t recommend this book
