Stripey’s Debut Guest Post About My New Time-Travel Mystery, The Mistaken Mission

Hey, there. It’s Stripey, Debbie’s 11-year old cat. Since Harry and Hermione have a column on this blog, I thought I’d ask Sneaky if I could write a guest post about Debbie’s new short story, The Mistaken Mission, since I’m featured in it. I’m excited to finally appear in one of Debbie’s works. This is definitely something to meow about.  Although I make only a brief appearance in the story, I’m thrilled to have been included.

Nineteen years ago, Gina Garrett’s father disappeared into the past using a time-travel disk he and his partner created. The only person who believed Gina when she explained what happened was her father’s partner’s son. When he, now a detective, shows up at her door claiming that he needs her help him prevent a murder that happened a year ago, she hopes they can find her father, too.

You have to read this story. It’s free on Kindle Unlimited and only $1.49 on amazon.  Get your paws on it here: mybook.to/mistakenmission

Sneaky’s Feature Friday Film: My Author’s Booktrailer for her New Mystery

Meow, there. For my feature Friday film this week, I’m showing Debbie’s book trailer for her new mystery Sea Scope.

It’s not part of our series, but it does have a cat or two. Mostly, it features lots of interesting characters and, because it alternates between past and present, you’ll see some of these people as kids and then as adults. Unlike our cozies, it’s a psychological mystery. That means it has a lot of deep themes, but it’s also a fun read. You’ll learn a lot about lighthouses. There are even photos and illustrations of them. This book is available in paperback, large type, ebook, and will soon be out in audio. It’s also free on Kindle Unlimited. Let me know what you think of the video preview.

Mew Release Spotlight: Cat Cafe: a Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mystery by Mollie Hunt

Cat Café, a new Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery

A body is discovered on the floor of the cat café, and all the black cats are missing!

 Cat Café, by Mollie Hunt

The 5th Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mystery

 Sixty-something cat shelter volunteer Lynley Cannon always finds more trouble than a cat in catnip, but this time it’s not about her. Someone is targeting very senior citizens, and when Bea Landrew, elderly owner of the Blue Cat café turns up dead, Lynley’s mom Carol could be next.

Handsome Detective Devon is looking for a link between the victims when he makes a different sort of connection— with Lynley! It’s been a long time since the cat lady had romance in her life, but while her mom is in danger, the case comes first.

It appears the cat café will go the way of its deceased owner, but Bea’s grandson, a slick Miami businessman, steps in at the last minute. Arthur is not a cat person so why would he bother? Romeo, the big Russian Blue, senses ulterior motives, but who will listen to a cat?

A black cat rescue, an antique photograph, an elaborate payback. Is this killer seeking justice or vengeance? With death as the objective, the results are the same.

 Launch date for Cat Café, the 5th Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery is October 29th, National Cat Day. Pre-order your copy now!

Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer. Mollie is the author of THE CRAZY CAT LADY COZY MYSTERY SERIES, featuring Portland native Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip. The 3rd in the series, CAT’S PAW, was a finalist for the 2016 Mystery & Mayhem Book Award. Mollie also published a non-cat mystery, PLACID RIVER RUNS DEEP, which delves into murder, obsession, and the challenge of chronic illness in bucolic southwest Washington. Two of her short cat stories have been published in anthologies, one of which, THE DREAM SPINNER, won the prestigious CWA Muse Medallion this year.

 Mollie is a member of the Oregon Writers’ Colony, Sisters in Crime, Willamette Writers, the Cat Writers’ Association, and the Northwest Independent Writers Association. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and a varying number of cats. Like Lynley, she is a grateful shelter volunteer.

Purrsenting My Author’s New Mystery, Reason to Die

I’m proud to announce the release of my author Debbie De Louise’s new mystery, Reason to Die. While it’s not part of our Cobble Cove mystery series and isn’t a cozy, it does feature a cat named after Debbie’s Oliver who has since gone to Rainbow Bridge and also a bird named Chirpy and a dog called Rufus. Get your paws on a copy soon. 

eBook & Kindle Unlimited: myBook.to/RTD
Paperback: myBook.to/RTDpap

Someone is strangling disabled people in the small town of Baxter, Connecticut. Detective Courtney Lang and her ex-partner and ex-lover, wheelchair-bound Bill Thompson, are paired up again and put in charge of the investigation. During the course of their search, Courtney uncovers information that points toward a connection between the murders and an unsolved series of muggings by a masked man, the same man who shot and disabled Bill a year ago on the night he proposed marriage to her.

Complicating matters for Courtney is her guilt about Thompson’s shooting, her affair with her new partner, Mark Farrell, and her unresolved feelings over the deaths of her mother and sister who perished in a fire while she was away from home.

As the deaths accrue and the “Handicapped Strangler” as the killer is coined by the press continues to rampage the town adding victims of different ages, sex, and disabilities to the murder count, Courtney discovers a clue that could crack open the case but may put her and Bill’s life in jeopardy.

Check out this pawsome excerpt from the book:

As Agnes walked to the bathroom now, she tapped her cane around in habit. She knew the twenty steps down the hall by heart. She had her own built-in GPS. But the cane was a comfort, a guide she hesitated to give up.

When she was through taking care of her needs, she started back to the living room. Chirpy suddenly began squawking. She thought he was resting. Something had stirred him. Then she heard a noise by the front door. Someone was on her step.

“Settle down, Chirpy. Looks like we have a visitor,” she said as she cut across the room to answer the light knock. The bird continued to squawk. She wondered why he was so excited.

“Who is it?” she called when she got to the door.

A male voice replied, “Talking Books delivery for Ms. McCarver.”

How very strange. She’d had a delivery of the audio books last week, and they usually only arrived once a month in a box delivered by the mailman. Maybe there had been a mistake.

“I haven’t ordered any new books,” she said, “and they usually come in the mail.”

“No mistake, Ma’am. Talking books are being hand delivered now. Can you please open the door and take them? I have several more stops to make today.”

Agnes hesitated a moment. Chirpy had finally quieted down. Edna would probably scold her for letting a stranger in the house just because he claimed he had audiobooks for her, but he sounded nice enough. He sounded a lot like the kind librarian from the Helen Keller Library who visited yesterday.

Reaching up, she unlatched the safety lock and then twisted the doorknob. She heard the man step forward. He closed the door behind him and then pushed her to the ground. Her cane flew away. She tried to grab for it, but it was out of reach. It happened so fast, a scream lodged in her throat as he put his gloved hands around it and squeezed. From a hazy distance of fear, she heard Chirpy start squawking again. The pressure on her throat tightened. She couldn’t yell or even talk. Blackness engulfed her as the gray shadows of her limited sight dissolved. All she could hear in those last moments were Chirpy crashing against his bars in a useless attempt to free himself and the bad man’s raspy breathing against her cheek as he squeezed the life out of her.
