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!

Review of MRS. ODBODDY: AND THEN THERE WAS A TIGER
by Elaine Faber
This is Book #3 in a wonderful series! Although this was my introduction to Mrs. Odboddy, I immediately became a staunch and adoring fan, and simply must read the first two books (and any yet to come). Mrs. Odboddy is genuinely adorable, and so are her granddaughter Katherine, and Katherine's new ward, the nine-year-old Maddie, brought from Washington D.C. Eccentric, yes; a mind of her own, yes; but remember Mrs. Odboddy was once an efficient spy in WWI, and is still “a home town patriot.” Right now she is the nemesis of her California community, accused of burglary, lying to the police, counterfeiting—but somebody is framing her, and somebody is not afraid to resort to violence to accomplish goals.
