hitney's cat Sawdust discovers a dead body in the grounds of the new/old house! The death becomes more important than fixing up an old house.

elly has won many awards with her writing. She manages to take a serious subject and find the humor that lies beneath the surface. Her characters are right on. It is easy to see why so many awards have been presented to her, and the mystery will keep you guessing. I look forward to the next novel in this series.
