“Excellent....These Joe Grey mysteries will stay popular for many years to come.”
Kirkus Reviews says that award-winning author Shirley Rousseau Murphy has “raised the stakes of the feline sleuth genre.” In Cat Playing Cupid, Murphy’s fourteenth delightfully sophisticated whodunit to feature Joe Grey and his furry friends Dulcie and Kit, the feline P.I. is on a mission to stop a crime spree that endangers love on Valentine’s Day. The winner of seven straight Muse Medallions from the national Cat Writers Association, Murphy’s Joe Grey novels are the “cat’s meow”—as doggone good as Rita Mae Brown’s “Sneaky Pie,” Carole Nelson Douglas’s “Midnight Louie,” and Lilian Jackson Braun’s The Cat Who...books.

Love—and murder—is in the air. . . .
It took Joe Grey's human, Clyde, nearly forever to pop the question to Ryan Flannery, and what more romantic time to tie the knot than on Valentine's Day? But dark secrets from the past, uncovered by Joe and his feline pals, threaten to ruin the happy union.
First, a body discovered many miles away reopens a ten-year-old cold case involving a man who disappeared days before his own wedding. The jilted bride is back in town and eager to find the truth . . . or to hide evidence of her own wrongdoing. Trouble is, she's soon involved with Ryan's father, who is house-sitting and preparing meals for Joe Grey while Clyde and Ryan are on their honeymoon.
Then another body is found closer to home on the grounds of a ruined estate, deserted save for a band of unusual feral cats. Around the wrist of the corpse is a bracelet bearing the image of a rearing cat, and the cats discover a rare literary volume hidden nearby that divulges their own secret: their special ability to speak.
But as the police investigate the two murders, located more than five hundred miles apart, only Joe Grey suspects that the crimes are related. It takes a chase from which the tomcat wonders if he'll emerge alive for anyone to hone in on the connection between the murders. Finally, feline perception and cop sense combine to bring a killer to justice in this delightful new tale involving Shirley Rousseau Murphy's three amazing cats.About the Author:
