File M For Murder

Athena College's new writer in residence is native son and playwright Connor Lawton, known for his sharp writing-and sharper tongue. After an unpleasant encounter, librarian Charlie Harris heads home to a nice surprise: his daughter Laura is subbing for another Athena professor. Unfortunately her old flame Connor Lawton got her the job.
But before Connor finishes his newest play, he's murdered-and Laura is the prime suspect. Charlie and his faithful cat, Diesel, follow Connor's cluttered trail to find the true killer before his daughter is forever catalogued under M...for murderer.

This is the 3rd book in Miranda James' Cat in the Stacks series, and I think it's the best one yet! Diesel absolutely steals the show; his head bumps and warbles will melt the heart of any cat lover. I enjoyed the addition of Charlie's daughter Laura, and his protectiveness of her. A cozy series with a middle aged man as the lead character is unusual, but it works. His interaction with the supporting cast of his children and boarders is very enjoyable as well. Any lover of cat cozies (and cozies in general) will fall in love with this series.
