CAT COZIES

It’s October in Cobble Cove, and Alicia is busy preparing for the library’s Halloween party when she learns that John’s aunt from Florida has died and that John’s cousins and their spouses are coming to town to bury their mother. The day after the funeral, the caretaker’s son is found dead by John’s grandfather’s gravestone, from a blow on the head. The only witness seems to be Sneaky the library cat, who, having left the library, turned up at Alicia’s door with blood and dirt on him. As Alicia, Gilly, and Sheriff Ramsay investigate, a generation of family secrets is uncovered. Are one of the guests staying at the inn a killer? Will the humans solve the crime, and can Sneaky, Kittykai, and Salem, the inn’s guest cat, team up to help?

Lynley Cannon is the crazy cat lady, but she’s not quite crazy yet, though a bizarre connection to a bumbled heist and a double homicide has got her wondering in this 1st Crazy Cat Lady mystery. Retiree Lynley Cannon usually enjoys her old Portland home with her clowder of rescue cats, but when elderly Fluffs drags in a dusky brown beach agate that turns out to be a priceless chocolate diamond, things change fast. The uncut stone, one of a pair called the Cats’ Eyes, has been stolen from its wealthy owner, but how it ended up a cat toy, even the robbers cannot guess.Threatened by theft, kidnapping, and murder, Lynley is determined to maintain her serenity, even if it means finding the crooks herself. With the police completely baffled, friends, family, and a hunky humane society investigator come onboard to help.The killer, convinced that Lynley has the diamonds, is prepared to go to any lengths to get them back. Will Lynley live to clean the litter box another day?

FELINE FANTASIES

Saving the world is such a bother when it makes you late for your nap. Blessed (or cursed, depending on who you ask) with human intelligence, Sir Edgar Allan Kipling, magical talking cat extraordinaire, spends most of his time keeping his human out of trouble. Of course, having a wizard for a human means that trouble is never far away. When Sir Kipling’s human goes away for the weekend and leaves him to guard her magical library, things start out quiet. But when he discovers a witch smelling suspiciously of demon magic snooping in his human’s office, quiet goes out the window and chaos looms on the horizon. Will Sir Kipling be able to outwit the intruders before their mischief causes permanent damage? If you are a cat person, you will adore this book. If you are a dog person, you will also adore this book, and upon completion will be inexplicably compelled to go out and adopt a cat. You have been warned.

Ever feel like your entire world has been turned on its head? That’s how I’ve felt ever since the gang and I found out that Nan has been keeping major family secrets stashed neatly away in the attic.

What’s worse, we still don’t know exactly what happened, and I have so many follow-up questions, like is she still the same woman I always assumed she was? And can I ever fully trust her again?

With Nan unable to give me a straight answer, I invite my parents to join me for a cross-country train trip so that we can all discover the truth, once and for all.

Octo-Cat hitches a ride with us, too, and it’s a good thing he does, because it isn’t long before a dead body joins us in the dining car. Now we have two mysteries to solve, and fast—our lives and legacy depend on it.

Life is supposed to get easier the older you get, right?

After a life of world travel and jujitsu competitions, retired museum curator, Dorothy Claes, is ready for a quiet life. Despite the rambunctious antics of her feline companion, Solomon, taking over the antique shop her late-father left her seems like the perfect way to settle down.

But when a mysterious stranger comes to call, spinning tales of magical artifacts, and the organization in charge of them, life becomes anything but quiet. With Solomon in tow, Dorothy heads out on her first mission: Discover, Obtain, and Neutralize the artifact that is causing pedigree cats in Paris to disappear and their owners’ memories to be wiped, before it ends up in the hands of someone far more sinister.

If you like International Travel, Feline Myth and Lore, and Tough-As-Nails Mature Female Leads, you’ll love CP Morgan’s Magical Cozy Mystery series. Grab your copy today, and curl up with your favorite feline.

Review: Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus: Beginnings (The Lily Singer Adventures Book 1) by Lydia Sherrer

Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus: Beginnings (The Lily Singer Adventures Book 1) by Lydia Sherrer

**** 4 stars

This is a fun book written in an unconventional style. The author refers to the three short stories that comprise the novel as “episodes.” Two of them are told from Lily Singer, the main character’s, point of view. Lily is a librarian . . . and a wizard. She also has a cat, Sir Kipling, who doesn’t play much of a role in this book but seems to play a big one in the second which is previewed at the back. Lily’s co-hort, Sebastian, who narrates the other tale is a witch. Together they solve various mysteries such as recovering a stolen magic tool from Sebastian’s family that has caused a time loop in a nearby town. If you enjoy a mix of magic, fantasy, and comedy that features likable characters, this is the book for you.

About the Author (from her Amazon Author Page)

Award-winning and USA Today bestselling author of snark-filled fantasy, Lydia Sherrer thrives on creating characters and worlds you love to love, and hate to leave. She subsists on liberal amounts of dark chocolate and tea, and hates sleep because it keeps her from writing. Due to the tireless efforts of her fire-spinning gamer husband and her two overlords, er cats, she remains sane and even occasionally remembers to leave the house. Though she graduated with a dual BA in Chinese and Arabic, after traveling the world she came home to Louisville, KY and decided to stay there.

Lydia is not just out to write good books, but to make the world a better place, one story at a time. Her goal is to write with purpose, inspiring others to dig deep into the life they’ve been given and to dream big, because the world is built on dreams.
