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!

This is the second book in this series that I have read, and it sure won’t be the last, I loved them.
The author keeps me chuckling, especially with the characters names. Just a few, chicken named Mrs. Whistlemeyer, or Dr. Dew-Right, or Chief Waddlemucker, or Sarg. Dimwiddle, and more, like Homer Blenkinsop, and with Blendinsop being a very common name, tongue in cheek, and smiles!
The story does keep you on your toes, and you never see what is about to happen, and the setting is WWII, and even Mrs. Roosevelt is back. A don’t miss read that make you want more once that last page is turned!
I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
