    • Abstract:
      Summary: Shell and her two furry sidekicks must cat-ch a killer to save their pet shop. Crishell "Shell" McMillan sees the cancellation of her TV series as a blessing in disguise. The former actress can now take over her late aunt's pet shop, the Purr N' Bark, and do something she loves. While getting the shop ready for re-opening, Shell is asked to loan her aunt's Cary Grant posters to the local museum for an exhibit. She finds the prospect exciting--until a museum board member, who had a long-standing feud with Shell's aunt, votes against it. When she discovers the board member dead in the museum, Shell becomes suspect number one. Can she, her Siamese cat Kahlua, and her new sidekick--her aunt's Persian Purrday--find the real culprit, or will her latest career go up in kitty litter?

Crishell "Shell" McMillan, an actress on a just-canceled TV spy series, happily relocates to suburban Connecticut to run a pet shop, part of her inheritance from her Aunt Tillie. Shell and her Siamese, Kahlúa, settle in, making friends with other shop owners, as well as with Purrday, Aunt Tillie's one-eyed white Persian. Shell had been approached about loaning part of her aunt's Cary Grant film-memorabilia collection to the local museum for an exhibit, but she is startled to learn that the board had voted against the loan at the urging of its dominant member, Amelia Witherspoon. The day after Shell confronts Amelia about the decision, Shell goes to the museum to make the appeal again, only to find Amelia's body. Shell, her new friends, and her former costar Gary Presser investigate, with Shell trying to stay on the good side of handsome detective Josh Bloodgood. They quickly learn that Amelia had dirt on many people in town, enlarging the suspect list. Readers who miss Koko and Yum Yum from Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who novels will enjoy Purrday and Kahlúa in this first of a new series. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

LoTempio's entertaining series debut introduces former TV actress Crishell "Shell" McMillan, who inherits a pet shop in Fox Hollow, Conn., from her late aunt, Matilda "Tillie" Washburn. Tillie was well regarded by everyone in Fox Hollow except for Amelia Witherspoon, with whom Tillie had been feuding for years. Shell soon discovers that Amelia is extending the feud to herself, using her position on the museum board to block a showing of Tillie's amazing Cary Grant memorabilia. Shell also learns that the gossip mill in town is alive and well, especially with the help of smarmy Quentin Watson, the publisher of the local rag, who plants a seed of skepticism about the newest resident in his paper. When Shell finds Amelia's dead body, homicide detective Josh Bloodgood puts her on the short list of suspects. Two adorable cats, Kahlua and Purrday, provide solace. LoTempio (the Nick and Nora mysteries) telegraphs the killer's identity too early, but this is a quibble. Feline-loving cozy fans will be satisfied. Agent: Josh Getzler, HSG Agency. (Aug.)
