Description : Carolyn Haines's Southern Belle mysteries kick sleuthing up a notch with Sarah Booth Delaney, the sassiest heroine this side of the Mississippi. . . Displaced from its New Orleans venue, a red-hot touring production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is opening right in the heart of Zinnia, and featuring hunky star Graf Mileau! Sarah Booth, who had her own brief stint with Mileau himself, is less than thrilled. Graf is now linked with his costar, Renata Troviola, a dyed-in-the-wool diva who plans to ride Graf's coattails all the way to Hollywood. But Renata's trip to the top comes to a screeching halt on the play's second night when someone laces her lipstick with cyanide. It seems Renata was stirring up plenty of drama behind the scenes, making enemies galore: her long-suffering makeup artist, an extremely harsh critic, an angry audience member. . .even boy toy Graf had a motive. But the most damning evidence points to Sarah. Now, to save her reputation, Sarah reckons she'll have to bring the curtain down on a mystery with more twists and turns than the Old Muddy. . . Praise for Carolyn Haines and her Southern Belle mysteries: "Funny, ingenious. . .and delightful." --Dallas Morning News "Wickedly funny. Devilishly clever. Scintillatingly Southern. Carolyn Haines is an author to die for." --Carolyn Hart

Description : After a group of boys mistreated him, a young kitten ran and hid. He sat under a bush until he calmed down. He did not know what to do. As he started to nap, he realized there was a human who would help him. He looked around until he found her house. The young girl sat in her backyard. He cautiously walked up to the girl and climbed in her lap. The kitten needed her help, so he could learn to trust humans again and heal his wounds. He knew, as cats knew, that she needed his help to gain confidence in her ability to help animals, and he was to teach her how to trust herself. She named the cat Blackie. He helped her save some of the birds and other animals when they were injured. She helped Blackie recover from the injuries he received when he was in cat fights. The cat remained to be her support and companion during these adventures. When Blackie realized his time was finished, he waited until he knew the next cat was on the way. That cat became Natasha, and she changed everything.
