A holiday in rural Massachusetts seems like just the thing for talented actress turned cat-sitter Alice Nestleton—until a killer strikes a sour note…
Alice Nestleton has recently died… at the box office, that is. Her latest play bombed, and the critics gleefully skewered her performance in the reviews. Instead of going to the dogs, Alice has returned to a kinder, gentler profession—cat-sitting. Her current assignment is to deliver an adorable Scottish-fold kitty named Lulu to her owner at a remote Massachusetts artists’ colony. To Alice’s relief, the woods are lovely, dark, and deep—too bad the visiting world-famous quartet isn’t as charming…especially when their handsome ladykiller of a pianist turns up murdered.
Alice may have a tin ear, but she possesses a sharp eye for suspects and a nose for clues. Now, the paw prints are on the wall, and Alice has a good idea whodunit. But the local police won’t listen, and soon the intrepid cat-lady is baiting a dangerous mousetrap for a killer who’s not just pussy-footing around…
Be sure to look for A Cat Tells Two Tales, available October 2012 in trade paperback from Obsidian.
