LET'S GET COZY! WHAT THE CAT SAW: A PREVIEW AND A GIVEAWAY

 GIVEAWAY ENDED 
WHAT THE CAT SAW
BY CAROLYN HART
ABOUT THE BOOK:
National bestselling author Carolyn Hart presents the story of a woman with a curious ability that drops her headfirst into a world of intrigue and 
murder...

Since her fiancé’s death, Nela Farley has been plagued by a sixth sense: She understands the thoughts of cats. In desperate need of a distraction, Nela agrees to substitute for her sister, Chloe, at her job for a charitable foundation. Chloe has even arranged a place for her sister to stay. But when Nela encounters the previous tenant’s cat, she gets a flash of thought: “. . . dead and gone . . . She loved me . . . skateboard on the step . . .”

Nela wants to ignore what the cat saw, but the idea that the death of former tenant Marian Grant wasn’t an accident is something she can’t ignore. And when a detective becomes suspicious of Nela’s sister and a second murder occurs, Nela realizes she’ll have to make the most of her unwanted ability before she meets her own untimely end...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Carolyn Hart was a child in Oklahoma during World War II. She drew on those memories to write her Agatha Award winning LETTER FROM HOME.

Hart's early memories of huge black headlines in the newspapers led her to major in journalism and work briefly as a reporter before turning to fiction. She is the author of 36 mysteries. In LETTER FROM HOME, she explores the impact of a crime on a small Oklahoma town in the summer of 1944 and on the life of 13-year-old Gretchen Gilman.

LETTER FROM HOME was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers and was named a Best Book of 2003 by Publishers Weekly.

An accomplished master of mystery, Carolyn Hart is the author of twenty-one previous Death on Demand novels. Her books have won multiple Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Awards. She is also the creator of the Henrie O series, featuring a retired reporter, and the Bailey Ruth series, starring an impetuous, redheaded ghost. One of the founders of Sisters in Crime, Hart lives in Oklahoma City.

Since I seem to be "owned" by several cats here, I can relate to understanding cats. I would really like to read this book, and see how the cats help her solve this mystery.

The idea of understanding the thoughts of cats is fascinating! Do they really think like the cartoons show us or do they think like people? Such fun - must read! :)
