CROSSING THE LION
From the English butler, Jives, to the wastrel son that wears tennis whites, to crazy Aunt Alvira who is kept locked in the attic, everyone in this story is a suspect. The amusing cast of characters keeps Jessie on her toes and thinking a lot about the board game Clue, especially when Miss Scarlet, the deceased's very young, very attractive assistant arrives. Solitude Island is the perfect place for a murder mystery setting - complete with a conservatory, hidden passageways and zero cell phone reception. Lovers of lighthearted whodunits will definitely want to read this book and then go out and get the rest of the stories in Baxter's Reigning Cats & Dogs series.
