" I really enjoy the China Bayles series, and I know I can count on a cozy read. This was no exception. Cat's Claw was a bit different as the story was told mostly from Sheila Dawson's perspective. One of Chief Dawson's neighbors has apparently committed suicide and a Pecan Springs bigwig is about to be arrested for extortion. Dawson's 2nd in command still resents the fact that he didn't get the job and she did. I enjoyed the change of perspective. I felt Ruby got very short shrift in this outing though, and I missed her.
