Contains excerpts from Hiss of death and A nose for justice.
Summary, etc.:
Mary Minor Harry Haristeen's beloved, tart-tongued neighbor Aunt Tally is about to turn the big 1 0 0, and the alumnae association of Tally's alma mater is throwing a big fund raising bash in her honor. The plan is to celebrate Tally's centennial and recoup some much needed school revenue lost in the cratered economy, but when a killer blizzard bears down and a board member goes missing, it falls to Harry and her menagerie of mystery solvers to track down the truth behind what is rapidly becoming a perfect storm of embezzlement, political corruption, and the kind of long smoldering enmity that can explode into murder. Does the key lie in a forty year old unsolved death? If so, Harry and her four legged friends better find it or even at a hundred years old Aunt Tally may outlive them all.
