Free sample

Sometimes murder is the only way to clean up the neighborhood.


Kat Harper's leisurely Sunday afternoon at her police detective boyfriend Andrew's house comes to an abrupt halt when a stray cat leads them to a dead body next door. Tragic as it is, nobody is surprised to learn the neighborhood hoarder lost his life in a mess of his own making.


Or did he?


The police soon rule Glen Havelin's death a homicide, but how do you narrow down the suspect list for a victim nobody liked? The deeper Kat digs, the more certain she is that Glen racked up more enemies than neighborhood code violations. But that won't stop the amateur sleuth from getting to the truth . . . not even after she's told her quest for "whodunit" might be putting her relationship with Andrew in jeopardy.


All of the Cozy Cat Caper Mystery books can be enjoyed as standalones but will be better appreciated as part of the series. The books are light, fun cozy mystery novellas featuring an animal-loving female amateur sleuth, lovable and not-so-lovable quirky characters, and a page-turning mystery that needs solving. None of the books include cliffhangers, bad language, or graphic scenes.

Welcome to Cherry Hills, where small-town life can be deadly.


Kat Harper fled Cherry Hills, Washington fifteen years ago never expecting to return. And she certainly never expected murder to strike so close to home.


Kat has barely settled into her new apartment when she spies her neighbor's cat Matty sitting on her doorstep. But Matty's not making a social call. The newly orphaned feline has just witnessed her owner's violent death.


But who would want to kill Mrs. Tinsdale? Was it one of her fellow animal rescue volunteers? A money-hungry daughter? Or a local veterinarian with something to hide?


If Kat wants to close the case, she's going to need Matty to lend a furry paw to solving the crime. But how do you convince a cat eyewitness to reveal "whodunit"?

What happens when big trouble comes to a small town? 

 

Cherry Hills resident Kat Harper doesn't expect her first meeting with the Furry Friends Foster Families animal rescue to kick off with the mysterious absence of another member. But it soon becomes clear why Willow Wu is a no-show; she's been arrested for a crime that nobody can believe. 

 

Kat's convinced someone framed Willow. But who would do such a thing? A crooked small-town cop with big dreams? A local teenager looking for revenge? Or the disgruntled caterer who lost out on a lucrative job? 

 

With this case hitting so close to home, Kat's determined to find the guilty party. And if she can cajole her cat Matty into lending another helping paw, the amateur detective might just succeed.

Animal rescue can be a deadly business. 



Murder is the last thing on Kat Harper's mind when she shows up for the Furry Friends Foster Families benefit dinner. But that's exactly what she gets when one of the guests drops dead. Now the focus of the evening has shifted from cat adoptions to catching a killer. 



Between an old childhood rival, a sister in line to inherit everything, and a couple with opportunity aplenty, there's no shortage of suspects. Kat's going to need all of her sleuthing skills if she hopes to identify "whodunit" this time . . . especially when her cats Matty and Tom turn the case on its head and force her to question everything that happened that tragic night.

Tiffany Swanson doesn't want to solve murders, she just wants to play poker. Unfortunately, the universe has other ideas.

 

Tiffany Swanson envisions big pots and big profits on her first day as a professional poker player. What she gets instead is the inside scoop to an unsolved murder. The image of the dead man comes to her in a flash—when she bumps into the victim's brother and picks up his memory of the crime scene. He's in Las Vegas with his buddies, celebrating his last weekend as a bachelor. Except right now he's doing more begging than celebrating as he tries to convince Tiffany to do some amateur sleuthing and help bring his brother's killer to justice. 

 

Tiffany intends to do nothing of the sort. She's not a police detective. She's not a private investigator. She's not even a true-crime aficionado. And she's definitely not telepathic—or so she's desperately trying to tell herself before she becomes another family black sheep like her kooky Vietnamese aunt Tuna. But all evidence indicates otherwise. And if there's a teeny, tiny chance she can help solve this homicide, doesn't she have an obligation to try? 


Hijinks and hilarity ensue when Tiffany reluctantly agrees to take on the case. But now she's only got one weekend to figure out "whodunit" before all the suspects flee town—taking their deadly secrets with them.


For fans of cozy mysteries with psychic and paranormal elements, clean murder mystery series, Asian women sleuth detectives, and fun, humorous fiction set in Las Vegas.
