Two Cassidy Adventures in one volume! A Pit of Trouble: How do you meet your new neighbors? Bring them a plate of cookies? Not Cassidy. She can't do anything without falling into  either adventure or trouble, and meeting her neighbors is no different. Newly married and finding her way around her new neighborhood, Cassidy meets both adventure and danger as she follows a famous nature photographer on his quest for the Island Fox and later meets up with canines of a different sort. A pit of trouble might be more than Cassidy can handle. And in the same volume: Merry Troubled Christmas: What do you do when you make a promise to a child? You keep it, that's what. When that child takes after his trouble-magnet Aunt Cassidy, a visit from a nephew can be quite an adventure. Throw in the snowstorm of the century and a little undercover work, and Cassidy's Christmas takes a humorous and harrowing turn for the worse.
