Join the wise-cracking cat and a host of “biped” sleuths for a romp across the mystery map—where he works with only the finest amateur sleuths to bring justice.

Even as a child, I was aware of my daddy's love for and pride in America. During WWII, he served on a naval aircraft carrier and in its planes as an aviation radioman. He met and married my mama while stationed in New York, far from his Mississippi home. I love the picture from their wedding day which sits on my dresser. He's in uniform, standing behind her, his arms around her. Daddy talked very little about his time in the service and only as an adult did I realize the wounds he carried inside from things experienced during battle. I'll always stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and I'll always respect our country and our flag. That's a part of my daddy's legacy to me.

This book, written by various authors, is centered around a year of American holidays, (and yes, Cinco de Mayo, the way it is celebrated, is an American holiday. My ex-husbands as from D.F. and had no idea what we were doing. It took a couple of years for him to get over us making a huge fiesta over it.). I loved that smaller holidays were included, including my son’s favorite, Veteran’s Day. I know and love several of the authors included in this anthology. Many of them, though, I had not read before or had only read in other anthologies. I was blown away by how well this came together! You have 14 different authors with 14 different main characters who wrote in 14 worlds yet kept the book flowing flawlessly! That is a major feat. Kudos to all the authors! You are all tremendously talented and dedicated to be able to blend the stories so they stayed true and separated yet connected around Trouble.
As I stated all the stories have their own main character. Some of them are familiar to many cozy mystery readers. For me, I looked forward most to seeing who Ritter Ames was going to write about, (Mia on a train ride you don’t want to miss reading about); catching up with Lily Gayle from Susan Boles; and Cherry Tucker, (why can’t I just say Cherry? It’s always Cherry Tucker for me, as if there are tons of women named Cherry.), from Larissa Reinhart. I looked forward to reading some authors I have on my TBR and keep promising myself I will read them and to reading completely new to me authors. I am so happy to say I was not disappointed. Every author wrote fun stories that made me want more of them. Do you know what surprised me the most though? All these different styles of writing and Trouble stayed consistent throughout the book! I was prepared to have his personality or speech slightly changed because of all the different authors. That did not happen. No matter who was writing the story, Trouble was Trouble. I marvel at that. It was amazing!
Yes, I am recommending you get this book. You can read it all at once. Or you can read each story around the holiday it celebrates. If you are doing a cozy mystery travel challenge, this book will help you knock off a few states. Whichever way you decide to read it, I’m sure you will be as surprised and delighted as I was.
I will probably add details but I will be computerless for a couple of days and I wanted to shout out "Awesome" now!
If you’ve never read any of the Trouble novels, this would be a great way to get your "paws" wet. I like the idea of reading each story near the holiday it celebrates as some reviewers have suggested, but I have to confess I read the whole thing over a long rainy weekend. I just gobbled it down like a cat eating treats. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
all the Trouble books. Started out reading the
Familiar series and was totally elated when they
continued with his son, Trouble. I'm keeping a
close eye out for more of the series. Can't wait
for another Trouble mystery!!!
