Watch what you wish for… Some inheritances are literally death.

My life has been turned upside down by my inheritance, but my only complaint is the cat that came along with the new house.

I swear he's judging me as I settle in and try to make new friends in my new small-town Louisiana neighborhood.

And just when I start to settle into my new job and get back to reading my classic novels, I'm pulled chapters deep into a mystery.

The Beauty Queen in the town has been offed. Someone has killed the darling.

Wouldn't you know it? An innocent man has been framed.

I shouldn't get involved, but somehow, my cat seems to have a way with finding clues in some of my favorite stories. Not that any of that makes sense.

Why would it?

The cat is the sleuth, I'm the amateur, and we have alligators in the backyard.

Throw in a dead body, a book club that's filled with suspicious characters, and you have my new life.

And I thought being a librarian in Louisiana was going to be dull.


  • Fun, cute, captivating

    I really enjoyed this book, it’s probably the first novel i’ve read in years. It was definitely an easy read and as i mentioned a fun story. I was definitely hooked in and just as curious as the main character in solving the mystery. I will say I do wish that there were a bit more suspense elements potentially but I still really enjoyed the storytelling
  • This was a fun who-done-it story !

    Enjoyed reading this from beginning to end. Chonks (the cat) was a hoot !
  • Light Read

    This was quite fun to read! I would say if you’re looking for a quick, light, mystery piece to pass the time, this book is for you!
  • Only good when the cat is narrator

    By Chenoa_Dove
    Incredibly boring story with a main character who comes off self absorbed and looks at everything and everybody around her as a stereotype.
  • Just read it

    By Maddie3333
    Read this book in one day! Seriously addictive, the perfect mix of serious and funny.
  • Such an amazing mystery, and I don’t generally read that jaunts

    By MissJenna04
    I loved this book! The fact that parts of it were told from the cats point of view tickled me. I literally couldn’t put the book down. I loved it and can’t wait to read the next one!
  • Good read

    By bbeerrttaa
    Really good read I enjoyed every minute of it and the Chonks has some of the best parts. Kinda cheesy but in a cute way, it’s lighthearted enough to be enjoyable but still a murder mystery that had me wondering who is was the whole time!
  • Amazing book!

    By _Bella M._
    This book really kept me on my toes! It was amazing to see that even Chonks the cat played a role in this, and a big one too 🤣. I’m so glad that Chonks saved Jade’s life!

    This was such a fun read. A little humor, a little mystery, and a great cat named Chonk. I’ll be readin the next book in the series.
