"A PAGE-TURNER!"

-- Publishers Weekly


This delightful new series introduces Jane Stuart, a widowed young mother and literary agent, and Winky, her tortoiseshell cat who has a nose for trouble.

The last thing a working mom like Jane needs is a call from her young son's school saying Marlene, his nanny, never arrived to pick him up. It looks as if the pretty, nineteen-year-old has left without giving notice, and no one seems to know where she's gone. Could the young nanny have met with foul play?

"PURE ENJOYMENT, REFRESHING AND LIGHT, THIS IS JUST FUN."

-- The Poisoned Pen

Juggling book deals, rival agents, and a rocky romance with a handsome author, Jane begins to uncover Marlene's shocking secret life. As she discovers more evidence that Marlene's innocence died long ago, Winky has a critical clue that could reveal if a killer came in on little cat feet. . .and if that same killer is getting ready to strike again.

"Marshall's refreshing debut has all the trappings of a cozy."

-- KIRKUS REVIEWS

"A fast-paced, solid whodunit full of nifty surprises and with a dandy twist at the end."

-- I LOVE A MYSTERY

"A must for cat-cozy lovers!"

This must be one of the earliest books in the series because the tone is much grittier and darker than the newer books. This book contains foul language. Still an enjoyable mystery.
