Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen's beloved, tart-tongued neighbor Aunt Tally is about to turn the big 1-0-0, and the alumnae association of Tally's alma mater is throwing a big fund-raising bash in her honor. The plan is to celebrate Tally's centennial and recoup some much-needed school revenue lost in the cratered economy, but when a killer blizzard bears down and a board member goes missing, it falls to Harry and her menagerie of mystery solvers to track down the truth behind what is rapidly becoming a perfect storm of embezzlement, political corruption, and the kind of long-smoldering enmity that can explode into murder. Does the key lie in a forty-year-old unsolved death? If so, Harry and her four-legged friends better find it or--even at a hundred years old--Aunt Tally may outlive them all.

Thanks for the heads up. Weary of politics bashing. I won't read this one.

Not really a good read. It was very American--guns, taxes, violence. The writing was understandable but terse with little embellishment. The cats didn't really come in to play when they should have. The characters are very wooden like cardboard cutouts.

Right away, I realized I've read this one before, but I didn't mind.

Very good, as this series is, but the author could have eliminated the environment preaching and the politics bashing. It would not have affected the story at all, and it would save the readers a lot of time.
