LET'S GET COZY! HOW TO PAINT A CAT: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED
HOW TO PAINT A CAT
A Cats and Curios Mystery 
BY REBECCA M. HALE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

San Francisco isn’t the biggest city in the country, but it feels pretty vast when you’re canvassing its neighborhoods looking for clues to your missing uncle’s hidden location. Aided by my two cats, Rupert and Isabella, I try to follow Uncle Oscar’s painted clues on a trail that leads from Coit Tower’s famous murals through San Francisco’s New Deal art—all while hoping my uncle’s sudden disappearance is unrelated to the murdered intern at City Hall.

Just when it seems our search has hit a wall, we receive some surprising help from beyond. But will it be enough to save us from our own brushes with death? Here’s hoping we don’t paint ourselves into a corner... 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Rebecca M. Hale is a graduate of Colorado State University (Biochemistry 1994) and Vanderbilt School of Law (JD 1997). After almost ten years working as a patent attorney in the San Francisco Bay Area, she took time off to write her first novel, HOW TO WASH A CAT—and never looked back. She primarily writes fiction in the form of quirky mysteries that reflect her travel experiences and many of the people she meets along the way.

She now lives in Western Colorado with her feline writing associates, that is, when she’s not off researching future books set in San Francisco, the Caribbean, or wherever else her wandering spirit takes her.

I love San Franscisco! When we went across the Golden Gate Bridge, I loved it so much that we turned around and crossed it again. We only got to spend one day there but I really would love to go back. So the setting of this book is super!

She was a patent attorney in the San Francisco area before she took time off to write her first novel. She never went back to the office.
