Dead in the Doorway is the second book in Diane Kelly’s House-Flipper series set in Nashville. Featuring Whitney Whitaker and her cat Sawdust, this cozy mystery will appeal to fans of home improvement shows and cat lovers alike.
From the publisher:
Whitney Whitaker has scored the perfect piece of real estate: a ramshackle white Colonial at the top of a hill with views of downtown Nashville. What more could a self-taught home-improvement maven and occasional house-flipper ask for? Ideally, the property of Whitney’s dreams would not have come with a dead body blocking the entrance to the foyer. But Whitney, always quick to take heavy-duty matters into her own hands, also happens to be a skilled amateur sleuth. Who is this older woman—and how did her corpse end up at the bottom of the staircase of this locked, unoccupied house? That is what Whitney, along with the support of her wood-working cousin Buck, Detective Collin Flynn, and, of course, feline partner-in-crime Sawdust, intends to find out.
This was a quick, highly entertaining read with likeable characters and a fast moving plot, and Sawdust the cat plays an important role in solving the mystery.
