Jimmy Katz, a young journalist from the Big City, throws in the towel after he's robbed at gunpoint at a gas station. He finds a job at the Twinkle Independent News in Twinkle, Texas, 385 miles from the closest shopping mall.
Jimmy settles into country life in the town of 3,000 at Mrs. Potts' boarding house with his Amazon parrot, Guppy, who has an extensive vocabulary.
Three months into his new lifestyle, Jimmy discovers a tiny kitten he names Maddy. Then his life is turned topsy-turvey.
The town matriarch, his long-lost aunt, names him her heir. Someone takes offense. Neither Jimmy, Police Chief Price, or his aunt Betty know if the threats are coming from the Big City or Twinkle.
Mysterious messages on his laptop lead to a shocking discovery.
