LET'S GET COZY: SLEIGHT OF PAW - A MAGICAL CATS MYSTERY GIVEAWAY

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED
SLEIGHT OF PAW
A MAGICAL CATS MYSTERY
BY SOFIE KELLY
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The second book in the Magical Cats Mystery Series by Sofie Kelly!

Small-town librarian Kathleen Paulson never wanted to be the crazy cat lady. But after Owen and Hercules followed her home, she realized her mind wasn’t playing tricks on her—her cats have magical abilities.

When the body of elderly do-gooder Agatha Shepherd is found near Kath’s favorite local café, she knows Owen’s talent for turning invisible and Hercules’s ability to walk through walls will give the felines access to clues Kath couldn’t get without arousing suspicion. Someone is hiding some dark secrets—and it will take a bit of furtive investigating to catch the cold-hearted killer.

EXCERPT FROM SLEIGHT OF PAW:
Chapter 1

It was pretty clear the body wasn’t going to go in the back of Roma’s SUV. The legs were hanging out, almost touching the driveway.
 

“Can’t we just push him in?” she asked, kicking dirty snow away from the back tires.

“No, we can’t just push him in,” Maggie said. “That would break his legs.” She walked to the other side of the SUV. “Maybe if we put him in feet first.” She looked at me. “What do you think, Kathleen?”

What did I think? I thought it was freezing. “He still won’t fit,” I pointed out. “Could we take his legs off?”

Maggie looked at me, aghast. “Take Eddie’s legs off? How?”

“I have a hacksaw under the front seat,” Roma added oh-so-not-helpfully. Because she was a veterinarian she had a number of things in her vehicle that other people didn’t.

I gave her a look. “No, I don’t mean saw off his legs,” I said. “But don’t they detach somehow?”

Wrong thing to say. Maggie laid a protective hand on Eddie’s thigh. “Do your legs detach?” she asked.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Sofie Kelly is an author and mixed-media artist who lives on the east coast with her husband and daughter. In her spare time she practices Wu style tai chi and likes to prowl around thrift stores.

When asked "How did you get started as a writer?", Sofie answered, "I’ve been writing forever. (I won third prize in a poetry contest in third grade.) I wrote radio commercials for years and lots of bad short stories that I couldn’t get published—for good reason—they were awful. But the more I wrote, the more I learned."
