Book Blurb Friday and Pawsitive Pondering: M is for Meow!
Can you believe it? Today is the letter M and that means we’re halfway through the A to Z Challenge. Bailey complained that she had yet to participate, so here she is with her feline insight.

Pearl Gerlish is tired of being treated like an old woman. The staff at Shady Daisy Rest Home wants to attach bells to her shoes—so she won’t wander off, they say. But Pearl knows better. Something is afoot on the Shady Daisy grounds come nightfall, and she aims to learn what it is.Pearl enlists the aid of her teenage granddaughter, Chloe, a Goth wannabe who quotes Sylvia Plath; and Milton Studbruster, former gumshoe and Shady Daisy’s resident octogenarian Lothario.Pearl, Chloe and Milton begin tailing Shady Daisy’s perky manager, Charlotte Chimera. But when she leads them through the woods to Slippery Rock at midnight, the hapless trio realizes they’re in trouble. For Slippery Rock is not just a simple water flume. . .Charlotte is not your average female. . .and dentures, sensible shoes and a waterlogged iPod are unreliable weapons against things that go bump in the night.
