 Book 2 is available!

The trouble begins when Chauncey declares that the newest houseguest of the Keslar Mansion is just not passing his sniff test!  
Chauncey, the large gray crazy-whiskered cat, has been fairly tolerant of houseguests up to this point, but the latest arrival has been deemed unacceptable.  With the mansion on edge trying to plan Amanda Morgan's wedding, the citizens of Spicetown in an uproar over a mysterious traffic patrolman disrupting their streets, and long-lost relatives arriving at the Keslar mansion, Grace has a full schedule.

Can they resolve all the discord without disrupting the wedding?  Perhaps Chauncey's doppelganger can help!
