While the ‘tiger of war’ rages across the Pacific during WWII, eccentric, elderly Agnes Odboddy, ‘fights the war from the home front’. Her patriotic duties are interrupted when she is accused of the Wilkey’s Market burglary. A traveling carnival with a live tiger joins the parishioner’s harvest fair at The First Church of the Evening Star and Everlasting Light. Accused again when counterfeit bills are discovered at the carnival, and when the war bond money goes missing, Agnes sets out to restore her reputation and locate the money. Her attempts lead her into harm's way when she discovers a friend's betrayal and even more about carnival life than she bargained for. Granddaughter Katherine's turbulent love triangle with a doctor and an FBI agent rivals Agnes’s own on-again, off-again relationship with Godfrey. In Faber's latest novel, your favorite quirky character, Mrs. Odboddy, prevails against injustice and faces unexpected challenges . . . and then There Was a Tiger!

 Through no fault of her own, Mrs. Odboddy is again at the center of public controversy. While she always has the community at the center of her thoughts, this time they turn on her! She is accused of being a liar and thief and even a counterfeiter.
Granddaughter Katherine and ward Maddie are in the middle of things right along with Grandma O.
Romantic adventures for both the mature women play a role when men from their past show up unexpectedly. Can these men help save Mrs. Odboddy`s reputation?  Perhaps even her life?

Oh and the tiger shows up in various ways.

If you love wacky but fun adventures, this is the series for you.
The historical detail adds additional depth.
For fans of cozy mysteries as well as historical fiction, get to know Mrs. Odboddy and friends.

  1. wonderful book. In the spirit of this book, I'm writing a book review first in my life. I am very inclined to expect an estimation from the teacher. I hope she will be as positive as possible
