The depictions of the small Florida town are enjoyable, and for the most part the characters work well. The killer is a bit of a surprise, but all the clues are there.
Bestet, the Egyptian goddess who guides Taylor, is not really a useful tool. She is all cat but perhaps a goddess out for vengeance might be a bit more particular in who to punish for a murder I actually felt that leaving her out or alternatively, turning her into a real cat and letting Taylor be mistaken about her identity as a deity would have been a better touch. I am an animal-lover and a regular visitor to animal shelters. This may have contributed to my enjoyment of the book.
I really enjoyed this story. It was interesting from the beginning and they story stayed consistent throughout. I usually have a hard time with the first in a new series, but this was a surprising treat. Taylor has a love for animals and spends her time between the animal shelter and her thrift shop, Girlfriends, which helps fund the shelter.
Upon the death of a long time Tropical Breeze resident, things take a turn for the worse. Mysterious cats, cat fights and so much more intertwine in this story. Not very often do I feel the need to reach into a book and slap a character, but I believe Tina deserved a slap and much more!
Don't miss the chance to find out what happens! Beckett Shiona Top Contributor: A very enjoyable read. A tiny bit of lore from Ancient Egypt woven into the plot reminded me heartbreakingly of my beloved books by the late Elizabeth Peters and introduced just a hint of the supernatural into the plot thankfully, not overdone. The characters were well-drawn, although one character's behavior seemed a bit over-the-top until later explained.
There were only a few suspects, but it was hard to pick the murderer from among them. Writing, grammar and editing were all well done.
Dr. Paul, a New York University professor, retires to her home on the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Valley, near Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Her community. "They say the therapist is a psychic. She can sense things, see them just by holding something they owned, even if they are dead." The man behind the desk .
A nice start to what could shape up to be a fine series. One person found this helpful.
I just picked this book on a whim, thinking it was just another cozy mystery. Instead, I found a winner, a book I couldn't put down. The author so skillfully wove supernatural elements into the story, they didn't seem intrusive at all. If you love animals although this is not an animal story and mysteries, and romance a prickly one but, hey, it is a romance with a little of the other world thrown in, run to get this book. I sure hope there is a sequel! I really enjoyed this book. The setting caught my eye, Tropical Breeze, Florida and then the fact that it had animals.
I couldn't put it down once I started reading. I loved the paranormal aspect of the story. It kept me guessing until the very end as to whom had killed one of the town residents and then killed again. I enjoyed the characters and Girlfriends, the resale shop for the animal shelter. Looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.
Yarrow noticed a picture of Mary Travers on the wall and asked Grossman who she was. As well as performing twice with Seeger at Carnegie Hall, Travers had also played a folksinger in a short-lived Broadway play called The Next President , starring satirist Mort Sahl ,  but she was known to be painfully introverted and loath to sing professionally. To draw her out, "Mr. Yarrow went to Ms.
Travers's apartment on MacDougal Street , across from the Gaslight, one of the principal folk clubs. They harmonized on 'Miner's Lifeguard', a union song, and decided that their voices blended.
To fill out the trio, Ms. Travers suggested Noel Stookey, a friend doing folk music and stand-up comedy at the Gaslight.
There the singers quickly developed a following and signed a contract with Warner Brothers. The group toured extensively and recorded numerous albums, both live and in the studio. In June they released a 7" single of " Blowin' in the Wind " by the then relatively unknown, Bob Dylan , also managed by Grossman. By the year-old Yarrow had joined the Board of the Newport Folk Festival, where he had performed as an unknown just four years earlier.
In Yarrow organized Survival Sunday, an antinuclear benefit, and after a period of separation, he was once again joined by Stookey and Travers..
Yarrow and his daughter Bethany Yarrow, who is also a musician, often perform together. Spirit of Woodstock , featuring a live performance of the band, aired on public television. Yarrow has long been an activist for social and political causes. What he did was not always popular. According to The New York Times:. As their fame grew, Peter, Paul and Mary mixed music with political and social activism. In , the trio marched with Rev. The three participated in countless demonstrations against the war in Vietnam. They sang at the March on Washington, which Mr. Yarrow helped to organize.
Though their activism provoked a steady stream of death threats, they were never harmed. Any one of whom could have had a gun. In , in an effort to combat school bullying, Yarrow helped start Operation Respect,  a nonprofit organization that brings to children, in schools and camps, a curriculum of tolerance and respect for each other's differences. Operation Respect later quoted Yarrow as saying:. Since I have lived a life of social and political advocacy through music, one in which I had seen songs like "Blowin' In the Wind," "If I Had a Hammer," and "We Shall Overcome" become anthems that moved generations and helped solidify their commitment to efforts like the Civil Rights Movement and the Peace Movement, I knew I had just discovered a song that could become an anthem of a movement to help children find their common sensitivity to the painful effects of disrespect, intolerance, ridicule and bullying.
Operation Respect's stated mission reads as follows: In all, the program has been presented to many educational leaders and more than 10 million children. In some form, the project has reached nearly one third of all elementary and middle schools in America—at least 20, schools, in all. Operation Respect developed the Don't Laugh at Me DLAM programs, one for grades 2 through 5, another for grades 6 through 8 and a third for summer camps and after-school programs.
These programs make use of music and video along with curriculum guides based on highly regarded conflict resolution curricula developed by the Resolving Conflict Creatively Program RCCP of Educators for Social Responsibility. Because of the generosity of its supporters, Operation Respect is able to disseminate the DLAM programs free of charge.
More than , copies of the curriculum have been distributed to educators since Operation Respect began.
Operation Respect also offers assembly programs and professional development workshops designed to provide educators with the tools for effective implementation. Operation Respect has been my main and all-consuming work for the past 10 years. My perception is that the kind of bullying, humiliation that goes on in children's schools leads to high rates of depression that was virtually unknown when I was young and the high suicide rate of teenagers which we know is almost inevitably caused by bullying or mean-spiritedness.
