LET'S GET COZY! WORDS WITH FIENDS: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


  GIVEAWAY ENDED 
WORDS WITH FIENDS
A Black Cat Bookshop Mystery
BY ALI BRANDON
 
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Brooklyn bookstore owner Darla Pettistone and her oversized black cat, Hamlet, have solved a few complicated capers. But after a recent brush with danger, Darla needs to get Hamlet out of a feline funk...

Lately, Hamlet hasn’t been chasing customers or being his obnoxious self—something Darla surprisingly misses. Concerned, she hires a cat whisperer to probe Hamlet’s feline psyche and then decides to get out of her own funk by taking up karate to learn how to defend herself in case the need arises again.

But when Darla finds her sensei dead at the dojo, it seems that even a master can be felled by foul play. Darla decides to investigate the matter herself, and the promise of a mystery snaps Hamlet out of his bad mood. After all, Darla may be the sleuth, but Hamlet’s got a black belt in detection... 
 ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pseudonym for Diane A. S. Stuckart.

Ali Brandon, author of the contemporary cozy series, The Black Cat Bookshop Mysteries from Berkley Prime Crime. Mix a bad-tempered black cat named Hamlet with an unwitting bookstore owner named Darla, add a dead body or two, and you have the kind of fast-paced murder mystery that will make you purr with satisfaction.

And, shhh! Don't tell, but Ali is also Diane A.S. Stuckart, author of the award-winning Leonardo da Vinci Mystery series.

This is a fun series, but hiring a cat whisperer? That is giving me the giggles (haven't been to bed yet) and I must find out what's happening!

I know about dog whisperers but not about cat whisperers. That seems kinda strange (so do the dog ones, really) I'd like to see who did it.
