This cozy series has everything you want and more: an eclectic cast of characters, a mystery or two, and diligent detectives on duty. The detectives, feline and canine, figure it all out, but they have a dickens of a time getting the humans to understand them. The series, Tiger Lily’s Café, is set in a Midwestern town nestled into the sunset coast of a Great Lake. The setting itself acts as a character, bringing the reader into the sights, sounds and smells of the small resort community of Chelsea. Read the series in order, or read any book alone. Each volume stands alone with a clear beginning and a clear end. This volume continues the story of Annie, a woman whose ownership of a prime piece of real estate and several businesses was almost a mistake. But own it, she does, and she makes the best of an idyllic situation. With her family of rescue cats and a diverse collection of business managers, staff and friends, Annie embraces her home on The Avenue, a picturesque slice of life that embodies the best – and sometimes the worst – that humanity has to offer. Christmas is coming, and New Year too. But then, so are those early snows and sub-zero temperatures, just in time for a true blizzard to hit on Christmas weekend. What a time for a bizarre mix of fishing and Phishing! While Pete, the Chief of Police, is on vacation, spearphishers, catphishers, and a tourist that hopes to be an ice-fisher run amok. The computer antics are aimed at Annie and her mix of businesses; it appears she has lost, well, a lot of money. The second string of the police department is in charge, and that leads to more trouble than Annie and her friends can handle. The FBI is called in, but will they be able to figure out who is targeting Annie? Is it someone from Chelsea? Someone from out of town? Someone who just began to work for Annie who has access to every building at all hours of the day or night? Is it true that Annie has criminals on her staff? Her trusted management staff? Tiger Lily and her siblings try to keep up with everything. However, their attention is split. They spend a lot of time with their canine friend, Cyril, who believes his human, Pete, has left him forever. Cyril believes he has been abandoned by his best canine friend as well. Cyril and Jock find themselves at odds because, of all things, the Westminster Dog Show. In the middle of it all, Annie hosts her entire family, ages 18 months through, well, the mature ages. Family meals and holiday parties on The Avenue don’t take a back seat to trouble. They become the center to which everyone can gather and feel safe.
