Cool Cats Mysteries Boxed Set Volume 2:
It’s the Cat’s Meow when astute Persian Tatania and her tomcat companion, Zeus, pounce on clues for their humans, romantic 1920s detectives, Grace & Jack, in a new series of mysteries!
In Meow Baby, a pregnant woman disappears and Grace and Jack discover a skeleton that carries the secrets of the heart that once beat within it.
In Cupake Kitty, when a singer at their engagement party dies, Grace and Jack follow the trail of a bootlegger’s dame to TiaJuana.
EXCERPT: Magical white cat Tatania became impatient with her humans. She could smell a succulent sea bass on the other side of the door. To encourage her humans to open it, she meowed. Zeus, her black and white feline companion, responded to her meow by putting his paws over his head and his rear end up in the air.
“How would you feel about spending a lot of time with me?” Jack asked.
“I feel like I already have,” Grace said.
“It only gets better.” He held up her hand and admired the emerald and diamond ring he’d bought her at Jessop & Sons jewelers last month.
He opened the door to the Hotel del Coronado’s Crown Room. A band played the Charleston. In the corner of the dance floor, there was an ice sculpture of two magnificent cats.
“What’s going on?”
“Our engagement party.”
“Why were you so sure I’d say yes?”
In Meow or Never, they rush to find a wealthy stockbroker’s missing wife.
EXCERPT: Cats truly live their nine lives at night. Zeus, a cute and mischievous tomcat, kept following the tide in and out, letting the water sprinkle his nose, and acting surprised when the tide chased him back to the shore. Wet, he shook like a puppy. Then, he sniffed each front paw carefully. Tatania looked away. She was terribly fond of Zeus. But sometimes, he was a tad unseemly. He scampered exitedly towards their favorite humans, a slender woman in a sparkling dress, and a muscular man with black hair and skin kissed brown by the sun. Zeus rolled around on the sand. Maybe he had dog blood in him. Tatania shuddered at the thought of that mating.
In Catty Corner, when an art heist happens during Grace and Jack’s rooftop cocktail party, the cool cats pounce on the trail of a collector who finds art as intoxicating as catnip.
EXCERPT:”Where have you been all my life?” A grey haired man asked a young flapper.
“I don’t think I was alive for half of it,” she replied, blowing smoke from a six inch rhinestone cigarette holder.
