Publisher's Summary

The Ducote sisters are in a tiff with Vera Cassity over the location of this year's library fundraising gala, and Charlie would rather curl up in a corner than get into the fray. It seems everyone - even his housekeeper Azalea - has it in for Vera. And at the gala, she gives them good reason, with a public display of rancor aimed at anyone who gets in her way.
But those bitter words wind up being her last. When Charlie discovers Azalea standing over Vera's dead body, it's up to him - with a little help from Diesel - to clear Azalea's name, and catch a killer before his last chapter is finished.

No story.

I was surpised and disappointed with this second book in the series. The first one had a lot of the soft, fuzzy "cozy" chat that isn't necessary to the plot but some of us like the positivity and human warmth of it -- AND a decent plot! This one just wanders and the "cozy" isn't warming.
