Synopsis:Former society wife Grace Cassidy is learning to live on the minimum wage she earns as a bed & breakfast inn-sitter. Grace finds her cat’s bloody paw prints leading away from a bathtub and wants to run for her life. But she can’t. Her 19-year-old son is accused of pushing his pregnant girlfriend down a flight of concrete steps and she won’t abandon him.
Read an excerpt:Blood colored paw prints trailed from the white tile bathroom onto the faux Oriental rug in the bedroom where Grace stood. The cat-feet marks immobilized Grace. She closed her eyes and prayed that she had been claimed by stress-induced insanity, that there were no dark-red blots before her eyes, but a hallucination. A nice long rest in a mental hospital didn’t sound too bad. Anything except another dead body in this inn where she worked.

This book was interesting and was different at times. Some times I wanted laugh and others I got the creeps. Grace was a fun character. She went from high society to minimum wage and her lifestyle changed. It was funny to see her reactions. There was a good twist at the end. The twist made the characters easier to understand! I also really liked that this took place in a Bed & Breakfast! Thank goodness this did not happen at the B&B I went to for my honeymoon! The Best part of this book was the cat's name! I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
