Whoever edits this stuff really needs to compare other books for continuity. The most recent transgression is CJ and church. Last book, she had for two years attended the same church as Beauford and Tweetie. This book? She hasn't gone anywhere since Grandma Ledbetter's church burned down.

Dmitri can't figure out whether he is totally declawed, not declawed at all, or still has his hind claws. I think the author has finally (nine books into the series) decided that he is front declawed only.

Mmm.

This is set in the American Holy City (Charleston, SC) and I am throughly enjoying it right now. It even provides a little tour of Charleston for those who haven't been there.

Tamar Myers was born and raised in the Belgian Congo (now just the Congo). Her parents were missionaries to a tribe which, at that time, were known as headhunters and used human skulls for drinking cups. Hers was the first white family ever to peacefully coexist with the tribe, and Tamar grew up fluent in the local trade language. Because of her pale blue eyes, Tamar’s nickname was Ugly Eyes.
