LET'S GET COZY! BLACK CAT CROSSING: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED
BLACK CAT CROSSING
A Bad Luck Cat Mystery
BY KAY FINCH

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the first in this cat-filled cozy series, aspiring mystery author Sabrina Tate is about to discover that when it comes to solving murders, her new feline friend Hitchcock is a master of sleuthing…

Sabrina has never been the superstitious type. Still, when she moves to Lavender, Texas, to write her first novel and help her Aunt Rowe manage her vacation rental business, Sabrina can’t avoid listening to the rumors that a local black cat is a jinx—especially after the stray in question leads her directly to the scene of a murder.

The deceased turns out to be none other than her Aunt Rowe’s awful cousin Bobby Joe Flowers, a known cheat and womanizer who had no shortage of enemies. The only problem is that Aunt Rowe and Bobby Joe had quarreled just before the cousin turned up dead, leaving Rowe at the top of the long list of suspects. Now it’s up to Sabrina to clear her aunt’s name. Luckily for her, she’s got a new sidekick, Hitchcock the Bad Luck Cat, to help her sniff out clues and stalk a killer before Aunt Rowe winds up the victim of even more misfortune…

PRAISE FOR BLACK CAT CROSSING:
"If Charlie and Diesel ever make it to Texas, they'll be heading straight to Lavender to meet Sabrina and Hitchcock to talk about solving mysteries. I loved every page of Black Cat Crossing, and I can't wait for a return visit to Lavender." —Miranda James, Author of the Bestselling Cat in the Stacks Mysteries


"Black Cat Crossing has Texas-sized charm and is sure to leave cozy mystery fans clamoring for more." —Ellery Adams, Author of the Bestselling Books by the Bay Mysteries

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kay Finch grew up on a Pennsylvania farm but she got to Texas as fast as she could and discovered the Texas Hill Country, the setting of her Bad Luck Cat mysteries coming from Berkley in 2015. As a child Kay wrote mystery stories, but it wasn’t until she went to work for a renowned criminal defense attorney that plot ideas once again began to flow. In addition to the Bad Luck Cat mysteries, check out Kay’s Corie McKenna PI mysteries, Final Decree and Final Cut, and Relative Chaos, her Klutter Killer mystery. Kay is long-time member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and the State Bar of Texas Paralegal Division. She lives with her husband, a rescue cat, and two wild and crazy rescue dogs in a Houston suburb.

I do love the pet/animal cozies (to be honest, I love most cozies), and the cover is so pretty (and slightly Halloween-ish). I think this cozy is perfect for October featuring a black cat that people believe is jinxed. I am looking forward to reading about Hitchcock the Bad Luck Cat adventures.

A new series! a great place to start. I love animals and black cats are cool. We have a new one behind us taunting our dogs. He just lays there twitching his tail and they are going crazy. When they all start barking at once the headaches begin! Count me in on this one, please.
