Genre: Cozy Mystery

Here, killer, killer, killer . . .
For the first time in sixteen years, Lara Caphart has returned to her
hometown of Whisker Jog, New Hampshire. She wants to reconnect with
her estranged Aunt Fran, who’s having some difficulty looking after
herself—and her eleven cats. Taking care of a clowder of kitties is
easy, but keeping Fran from being harassed by local bully Theo Barnes
is hard. The wealthy builder has his sights set on Fran’s property,
and is determined to make her an offer she doesn’t dare refuse.
Then Lara spots a blue-eyed ragdoll cat that she swears is the
reincarnation of her beloved Blue, her childhood pet. Pursuing the
feline to the edge of Fran’s yard, she stumbles upon the body of
Theo Barnes, clearly a victim of foul play. To get her and Fran off
the suspect list, Lara finds herself following the cat’s clues in
search of a killer. Is Blue’s ghost really trying to help her solve
a murder, or has Lara inhaled too much catnip?

and Mystery Writers of America, she loves solving mysteries of the

      In my experience, the publisher asks the author for ideas, but they generally do what they think is best as decided by their marketing team. Even if the cover is different from what I anticipated, I’ve loved every one of mine.

  3. I love the title and the cover! 😻

  4. Lilyn G says:

    I love the oversized cat mug! And is it really a ‘clowder’?? That’s the coolest name! Well, not quite the coolest, because I think a kindle of kittens is cuter, but it’s close!
