The author of a popular series of cat mysteries, Felicity Pride turns sleuth when she finds a cat and a corpse on her doorstep, investigating a host of suspects--and potential victims--that range from an avid pet-hater and a highbrow professor to her number-one rival in the field, in the first volume in a new series by the creator of the Dog Lover's mystery series

About the Author:

Susan Conant graduated summa cum laude from Radcliffe College and holds a doctorate in human development from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She is the author of the popular Dog Lover's Mysteries, and a six-time winner of the Dog Writer's Association of America's Maxwell Award. She and her daughter, Jessica Conant-Park, are now working on a new series of culinary mysteries, the first of which is titled Burned. Susan and her husband live near Boston with two Chartreux cats and two Alaskan malamutes.

From Booklist:

Author of the popular Dog Lover mysteries, Conant introduces a new series for feline fans. Felicity Pride, a Boston author whose cat mysteries have earned her a modicum of fame, finds a dead man on her doorstep. Next to him is an unperturbed gray Chartreux cat. Although Felicity feels compelled to take in the cat, she has never owned one and has no idea what to do--one of the many ironies in Conant's tongue-in-cheek story. After the dead man is identified, Felicity rescues his other cat, and once she adopts Brigitte and Edith, Felicity realizes that maybe she has a thing or two to learn about the subjects of her series. Despite her pomposity and pathetic attempts to be recognized, Felicity is an endearing series heroine, opening her heart to the two orphaned kitties--even if she doesn't know how to pet them. Conant drops some fun tidbits about the wacky world of mystery writers and gets in a few good-natured jabs at cat-mystery authors--poking fun at herself in the process. Jenny McLarin
