{I've Been Reading} A Whisker in the Dark

A Whisker in the Dark by Leighann Dobbs

This time it isn't one of Josie's guests who is found dead, it's the tycoon who built the mansion three hundred years ago. Repairs to the property reveal Jedediah Biddford's skeleton hidden in a wall at the same time as his descendants, a quarrelsome family of cheese sculptors, are staying at the guest house for the town's 250th anniversary celebration.

The local authorities aren't concerned about how Jedediah died or how he wound up in the wall, but everyone is searching for the treasure he supposedly left behind. They're digging up the property and tracking mud through the guesthouse...and then one of them winds up dead.

The second book in the Oyster Cove Guesthouse series is fast paced and fun, with quirky characters and an entertaining mystery. And did I mention that Josie isn't the only one trying to solve it? The two cats who came with the guesthouse, along with the other cats in town, are also working on the case and we get plenty of chapters from their point of view. I'll be watching for book number three.
