Kathleen Paulson enjoys her life as a small-town librarian with two extraordinary cats, Owen and Hercules, who provide companionship during the quiet times and have a remarkable talent for sleuthing when murder disturbs the peace....
The local businesses of Mayville Heights hope to convince Chicago-based company Legacy Tours to sell a vacation package for their town. Legacy Tours partner Mike Glazer grew up in Mayville Heights, but he’s no longer the small-town boy people once knew. Even the local bootlegger has an issue with the bossy loudmouth Mike has become - until someone shuts him up for good.
When Kathleen discovers Mike’s body on the boardwalk, she can’t help but get involved in the investigation - even if her beau, Detective Marcus Gordon, would rather she didn’t. Now, with a little help from Owen and Hercules, it’s up to Kathleen to make sure the killer is booked for an extended stay in prison before someone else takes a permanent vacation.

This is a hard story to rate, and maybe three stars might be a little low. The romantic tension between go-with-your-feelings Kathleen and go-by-the-book Marcus seemed genuine, and the plot seemed realistic. However, with a mystery, my ratings depend a lot on if I could figure out who did it? And I figured it out halfway through the book. Nevertheless, still a good week. I just hope the author hides the murderer better in the future.
