Each day during the month of March I will feature three Easter, Spring or St Patrick’s Day themed books. Hope you find some that are new to you and some that you enjoy. Enjoy your reading.
Spring is just a few weeks away, but winter is still digging its claws into tiny Moosetookalook, Maine. Even business at the Scottish Emporium has frozen up, so Liss MacCrimmon is cautiously optimistic when a twist of fate lands her on a reality competition show–until the contest gets a little too cutthroat. . .
Driving on an icy road on a truly dark and stormy night, Liss swerves her car when something darts out in front of it. She braves the weather and discovers a Scottish terrier shivering in the snow. Relieved that the dog survived their run-in, Liss sets out in search of her owner, unaware that the Scottie is actually a tiny celebrity–or that she was dognapped.
Liss soon sniffs out the pup’s owner, a well-heeled woman named Deidre Amendole, who is ecstatic to be reunited with her furry friend. Deidre and her Dancing Doggies recently won Variety Live, and the trio is slated to appear in the reality show’s “champion of champions” competition. But for Deidre, the contest is over before it’s begun when she turns up dead. . .
Deidre’s daughter asks Liss to help find out what happened to her mother–and to take Deidre’s place on the upcoming show. Before Liss can tell her she’s barking up the wrong tree, she finds herself ensnarled in the strange world of reality competitions and hot on the trail of a deadly dognapper. And just as she starts pawing at the truth, Liss realizes she could be next on the murderer’s list. . . (Goodreads)
It’s early spring in Erie, Indiana, and the weather has turned most foul. We find Katherine “Katz” Kendall, heiress to the Colfax fortune, living in a pink mansion, caring for her three Siamese and Abby the Abyssinian. Severe thunderstorms frighten the cats, but Scout is better than any weather app. A different storm is brewing, however, with a discovery that connects great-uncle William Colfax to the notorious gangster John Dillinger. Why is the Erie Historical Society so eager to get William’s personal papers? Is the new man in Katherine’s life a fortune hunter? Will Abra mysteriously reappear, and is Abby a magnet for danger? A fast-paced whodunit, the second book in “The Cats That” series involves four extraordinary felines that help Katz unravel the mysteries in her life.
