Freebie Friday - The Cat Who Knew the Cardinal by Lilian Jackson Braun (ends 12/24)
Back in Pickax, Jim Qwilleran expects to resume a quite life, but the people and animals of Pickax have other ideas. A noisy cardinal wakes him every morning Nosy neighbors drop by uninvited and the Siamese misbehave, even sneezing on guest. As if they weren't bad enough, Qwill's long-time companion acts as though she is in love - with another man. But worst of all, Qwill finds a body in his apple orchard. When Qwill's friend becomes the chief suspect, he embarks on a crusade to clear Dennis Hough's name and win back Polly Duncan's heart. Even Koko sniffs out a few clues. But will their efforts be too little too late? Not even Koko knows for sure in the quirky, engaging romp through Moose County.
