Description

It s autumn in cozy, idyllic Crozet, Virginia a time for golden days, crisp nights and murder. Mrs. Carla Paulson is one of the diamond-encrusted come-here set who has descended on Crozet with plenty of wealth and no feeling for country ways. She s determined to make her new house the envy of all her well-heeled friends and enemies and she s hired architect Tazio Chappers to build it. From the start, the project and Mrs. Paulson are a major headache for all involved. But no one could foresee that it would end with Mrs. Paulson stabbed to death at a gala fund-raiser with Harry s friend Tazio standing over her, holding the knife. Now Harry must solve what seems to everyone else an open-and-shut case. Her four-legged partners sleuthing cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter and corgi Tee Tucker see it Harry s way. But will they have to choose between catching the "purr"fect killer and saving Harry?"
