Classified as Murder by Miranda James (Book Review)
James, Miranda. Classified as Murder. Waterville, Me.: Wheeler Pub., 2011.
Note: This is the large print edition.
James Delacorte hires librarian Charlie Harris to inventory his rare book collection because he believes members of his family are stealing from him. The work barely begins when Delacorte is found murdered at his own desk. Charlie's son Sean has left his job as an attorney in Texas and assists his dad with the inventory which Chief Deputy Kalesha insists that he complete. She also wants him in the house to make observations on the somewhat nutty family. Diesel the cat plays a big part in the book as well. The characters are endearing, and Athena is a charming town with a very good chief deputy. Time to add book three to my to be read list! (3.5 of 5 stars)
