A new series (and a new species) for the award-winning author of the Dog Lover's mysteries.

Introducing a great new series and a terrific new sleuth in Felicity Pride, (herself an author of a series of popular cat mysteries). Now Felicity's facing a real mystery when she finds a cat-and a corpse-on her doorstep.

Who was he? Who killed him? And what publicity value could it all have for her newest novel? The answers may lie with an avid pet-hater; a highbrow professor who's read every cat mystery ever written; or perhaps with Felicity's own number-one rival in the field, a reclusive, bestselling author. With a burly, kilt-wearing detective on her side, Felicity must sort out a case more puzzling than any she's ever plotted on paper.

Felicity Pride, author of a series of popular cat mysteries, has just entered the vestibule of her apartment and discovered a very dead gentleman - looking like something the cat dragged in. And indeed, snuggled against the body is a gorgeous - and contented - gray Chartreux. With a cat and a corpse on her doorstep, Felicity's determined to solve the crime - just like her own fictional sleuth would do.
Who was he? Who killed him? Why was he left there? And what publicity value could it all have? The answers could lie with Felicity's neighbor, an avid pet-hater; or with a highbrow professor who's collected every cat mystery ever written; or perhaps with Felicity's own number-one rival in the field, a bestselling recluse living in the shadows of a nom de mystere. Right now, she's just scratching the surface, but with a burly, kilt-wearing detective named Dave Valentine on her side, Felicity intends to identify both victim and killer - and sort out a case more puzzling than any she's ever plotted on paper.

I enjoy her dog mysteries. I am not keen on those co-suthored with Jessica Conant-Park.
But these cat-lover mysteries! The person who seems to be the main character ... I'd like to slap her upside the head and yell at her to rub two brain cells together and stop being such a ditz. Always assuming she actually has two brain cells.
