CASSANDRA AND THE GI P.I. vol. 3 by Meriwether Shipley

DSCF4228 The saga moves along in this Dupont Circle mystery, as does the Cassandra/Harry relationship. We learn a bit more about Harry’s background, the youth and childhood that gives him the foundation he thrives on now, as they continue to prepare for the Big Day. . .the wedding.

In the meantime, we step back into the Civil War period as Cassandra, Harry, and best buds, Chris and Mother, drive to Cinque Terra to help a wounded warrior. The mental wounds seem to be more difficult to heal. This is what Harry does, helping to heal those who suffer like he does.

Harry is a busy man. He also has this new interest in the theatre he bought. Cousin Bill is helping him with that, along the way of falling in love. There is a possibility of an explosion in that area, since an art expert has stepped into the arena.

Really, what’s all this about Panama? It’s connection to Washington, D.C.? I anxiously await for Volume 4.
