Shell and her two furry sidekicks must cat-ch a killer to save their pet shop

Crishell "Shell" McMillan sees the cancellation of her TV series as a blessing in disguise. The former actress can now take over her late aunt's pet shop, the Purr N' Bark, and do something she loves.

While getting the shop ready for re-opening, Shell is asked to loan her aunt's Cary Grant posters to the local museum for an exhibit. She finds the prospect exciting—until a museum board member, who had a long- standing feud with Shell's aunt, votes against it. When she discovers the board member dead in the museum, Shell becomes suspect number one. Can she, her Siamese cat Kahlua, and her new sidekick— her aunt's Persian Purrday—find the real culprit, or will her latest career go up in kitty litter?

My dog would hate it but I am sure I will enjoy it!

Our rescue cats - strays we adopted - would love to watch me
read it! They are happy when I am still with a good book,
giving them opportunity to snuggle in.

Cute interview! I enjoy all the things mentioned, especially the part about cats!

Most of the murder mysteries that I see are with dogs, It is nice to see other
animals (cats) used a character in solving the mystery

I can relate to this book. I never intended to have house pets, but during the past few years, my son found two kittens that were homeless. Guess what! He brought them to me and I've ended up with two feline companions. One is now four years old but the other is less than a year old. It's been quite interesting to have indoor cats and to watch them interact.

I think we would be a good match. My life is chaotic and I often
need a good read to help me chill. A good mystery which is a bit on
the light side - in gory intensity, not suspense - with a touch of
romance is often just what I need. We have had several cats over
the years. Our daughters each had their cat growing up. One is in
between cats at the moment. The other has 4 inside cats and about
6 outside cats.
Patricia Barraclough 12:46pm August 12)

I love cats and suspense. This sounds pretty good for a
book that I would read.
