“Four delightful mysteries to enjoy! Excerpt from Splendid Summer: A white cat sat against his pillows, grooming a paw.
“Do you sleep with her?”
“No, we’re just good friends,” he replied.
In Emeralds, Diamonds and Amethysts, Tatania and her tomcat companion, Zeus, race bootleggers to find an extraordinary jewel collection. Emeralds, Diamonds, and Ametheysts is about a code known only to women who fight for the rights of all women.
Excerpt: Grace looked at a ticket. It read: Good for one in a Pierce Arrow for the Suffragette March.
“I thought it was a march.”
‘Bless your heart, Grace. When one can ride in a nice Pierce Arrow, why walk? One can show one’s support from a luxury car just as well. Those with a chauffeur also serve.”
In Cher Ami, two people drop dead within minutes of each other. They appear unrelated. Tatania, and Zeus find the story of Cher Ami, a WWI carrier pigeon with the heart of a lion.
Excerpt: It’s not easy to get seven years of sleep in each year. Cats do their best. Since cats live seven years for each human one, naps are mandatory. Tatania, a fluffy white deaf Persian, and Zeus, a black and white with a little pink nose, were napping when the commotion began in Coronado Tent City. They sprawled across the bed’s middle.
Grace slipped on a sleeveless dress with a scalloped hemline.
“Feels a little chilly,” she said, rubbing her shoulders, “should I put on a sweater?”
“With the heat I generate, you won’t need one. Just stick close to me,” Jack said.“
