Publisher's Summary

The meow of death... 

Whisker Jog, New Hampshire, is a long way from Hollywood, but it's the place legendary actress Deanna Daltry wants to call home. Taking up residence in a stone mansion off Cemetery Hill, the retired, yet still glamorous, septuagenarian has adopted two kittens from Lara Caphart's High Cliff Shelter for Cats. With help from her Aunt Fran, Lara makes sure the kitties settle in safely with their new celebrity mom. But not everyone in town is a fan of the fading star. 

Deanna was in Whisker Jog when she was younger, earning a reputation for pussyfooting around, and someone is using that knowledge against her. After being frightened by some nasty pranks, Deanna finds herself the prime murder suspect when the body of a local teacher is found on her property. Now, it's up to Lara, Aunt Fran, and the blue-eyed Ragdoll mystery cat Lara recently encountered to collar a killer before another victim is pounced upon....

life of a star

This is a series I never gets tired of, especially with a good twist towards the end. a good mystery in audio with a good reader is such a joy. I want to read or listen to many more books by the author.

Very enjoyable.

This was a terrific book. The plot unraveled with a subtlety that kept me guessing until the very end. Romantic interest, mystery and cats. A great combination. Kudos, too, to the fantastic narrator. Lets here more from Callie
Beaulieu!

Great mystery, & spot-on knowledge of cat rescue

I enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one is even better. I enjoyed the characterizations, and the mystery was well written. But I have to say that what made the book excel for me was the spot-on descriptions of the cats and what it is like to foster or work in a shelter. Linda Reilly obviously has experience in cat rescue or she did an amazing amount of research. The descriptions of wanting what is best for the cats and wanting to place them in great homes, but at the same time, feeling the loss when they leave was spot-on. The knowledge of dealing with feral/semi-feral cats was also perfect. I foster for a cat rescue and a local shelter, and the side stories that revolved around the cats was more realistic than any cozy mystery I have read. So, while I totally enjoyed the mystery, I was also blown away by the cat rescue knowledge.

Finally!!! Thank you Linda Reilly! Best new author

Loved it! Feard there would never be another good "Cat Story " author. I have read all the Great Authors stories and have waited to long to find "Cat Lady Mystery Series"! Adore Callie Beaulieu!!
fits perfect !! May be other stories out there but if the narrator is
not right it ruins the story. Thank you for the Purrfect match!!!

A delightful cozy

This is a delightful cozy especially for those who like a hint of mysticism with their cozy cat mysteries. The cast of human and cat characters create a Knouff of a mystery to keep you reading and the skilled narration will help draw you in. This is a book for someone who wants a full length cozy and not a two to four hour brief story.
