Cat Man Deux
A Mo the Shelter Cat Mystery (Book I)
Cat and Man – a Deux for All Time Shrieking and howling in her makeshift cage, Mo arrived unceremoniously with police escort at Cats Pause Feline Shelter. In this quaint and quiet wine-country township of Seven Oaks, Oregon, where daily excitement is measured in parking tickets and spilled pinot noir, Mo’s ‘mum’ has been murdered! Suddenly orphaned and facing life as a shelter cat, Mo enlists new-found shelter feline friends, Phillip, Edward and Diana, to help her find mum’s killer. Mo also teams up with shelter director, Kate Ferguson, to discover who did the deed, and a new cat detective is born. Kate and Mo investigate why a group of California investors is trying to buy up and develop valuable vineyard land. Through their links with the community and the local police, they discover that the intent of the buy-up is to destroy the delicate ecosystem of the Jory Hills AVA. A surprise discovery leads them down a path of intrigue and betrayal; by exposing the plot to ruin the land, they expose the murderer. Mo and Kate learn they are meant for each other, and soon realize their lives are intertwined in the universe – as telepaths – and as ambassadors for Cats Pause.
