    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Sydney McCall left behind an ex-fiancé and a New York advertising job to return home to Deer Park, North Carolina, and help her sister, Kat, run the local animal shelter, Friendly Paws. Determined to save the shelter from financial trouble, Sydney and Kat organize a cat café fundraising event at a local coffee shop. Things are looking up until their landlord, Trowbridge Littleton, threatens to shut down the event. When Sydney drops by his art gallery to make peace, she finds Kat--along with Littleton's dead body. Local homicide detective Will Worthington--who just happens to be Sydney's old high school crush--is highly suspicious of the sisters' involvement. Desperate to clear their names from the suspect list, Sydney pounces on the investigation. With the help of one of the shelter cats, a savvy orange tabby named Toby, Sydney begins poking her nose into other local businesses whose owners may have benefited from Littleton's death--until the killer notices she's pawing a little too closely at the truth." -- From dust jacket.

Leaving behind her New York City advertising job and unfaithful fiancé, Sydney McCall returns to North Carolina to help her sister Kat run the Friendly Paws animal shelter. Sydney is adopted by one of the Friendly Paws cats, the charismatic, orange Toby the Wanderer. When wealthy landlord and curmudgeon Trowbridge Littleton threatens to shut down the Cat Café fundraiser and even the shelter itself, Kat and Sydney become suspects in Littleton's death, stumbling upon his body in his art gallery. Sydney, a Nancy Drew fan, is ably assisted by the intuitive and adventurous Toby as they start sleuthing to identify the real culprit. Sydney's high school friend Will, now a handsome homicide detective on the case, is conflicted by her involvement in the case. VERDICT The author of the "Nick and Nora Mysteries" launches an engaging series with a proactive, appealing sleuth. The (nontalking) Toby is sure to be a hit with cat lovers and cozy readers.—ACT

This sprightly series opener from LoTempio (Claws for Alarm and two other Nick and Nora mysteries) offers pure catnip for feline mystery fans. Ad exec Sydney McCall left New York City for her hometown of Deer Park, N.C., after finding her fiancé, the boss's son, in bed with her secretary. In Deer Park, she quickly runs into a corpse—obnoxious Trowbridge Littleton, who recently vowed to close down Friendly Paws, the animal shelter run by Syd's sister, Kat. With Kat high on the suspect list, Syd has to investigate a colorful roster of Littleton-haters. Cue the cute cop, Will Worthington, who doesn't want interference from an amateur sleuth—even though he and Syd had a thing in high school. Who killed Littleton? How long until Syd and Will kiss? LoTempio spins the suspense, but what most distinguishes the book is Syd's mystical connection with Toby, an unadoptable orange tabby. Who's the rescuer, who the rescued? You needn't be a cat person to get caught up in their drama. Agent: Josh Getzler, HSG Agency. (Mar.)
