LET'S GET COZY: THE BIG KITTY - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE BIG KITTY
A Sunny and Shadow Mystery
BY CLAIRE DONALLY

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Did curiosity kill the cat lady?

Sunny Coolidge left her New York City newspaper job to go back to Maine and take care of her ailing father. But there’s not much excitement—or interesting work—in Kittery Harbor. So when Ada Spruance, the town’s elderly cat lady, asks for help finding her supposedly-winning lottery ticket, Sunny agrees. But when she arrives at Ada’s, with a stray tomcat named Shadow tagging along, they discover the poor woman dead at the bottom of her stairs. Was it an accident—or did Ada’s death have to do with that missing lottery ticket, which turns out to be worth six million dollars?

Town Constable Will Price suspects the worst. And Sunny’s reporter instincts soon drive her to do some investigating of her own. Even Shadow seems to have a nose for detective work. Following the trail of the purrloined ticket, Sunny and Shadow try to shed some light on a killer’s dark motives—before their own numbers are up…

PRAISE FOR THE BIG KITTY:
“Four paws up and a tip of the tail.” 
—Carolyn Hart, author of Dead by Midnight
 
“The Big Kitty combines heart-warming humor and nail-biting
suspense.” 
—Ali Brandon, author of the Black Cat Bookshop mysteries 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Claire Donally is a pseudonym for the author of many other critically acclaimed cozy mysteries. She is a mystery to me as I have yet to find anything more about her other than she wrote a fun new cozy mystery. If anyone knows more, I'd love the info.

Love cozies and cats of which I have 4. When there is a cat on the cover I always stop and check out the book. Would love to see how Sunny and Shadow make out in the story.
