THE TROUBLE WITH MURDER

Genre:
Cozy Mystery

Single mom and gourmet cat food
entrepreneur Colbie Summers thought she’d escaped her tiny
California hometown forever. But when her father needs her, she packs
up her adolescent son, their finicky feline, Trouble, and her budding
business. She knows change is tough—but she doesn’t expect it to
be murder . . .
Between dealing with her newly rural
life, her grumpy, sports-obsessed father, and preparing to showcase
her products in the local Sunnyside Power Mom’s trade show, Colbie
has more on her plate than she bargained for. Luckily, she has her
official taste-tester, Trouble, by her side to vet her
Meow-io Batali Gourmet Cat Food line.
Things look promising—until one of the Power Moms is found
dead—with an engraved Meow-io specialty knife buried in her chest.
As the prime suspect, Colbie needs
paws on the ground to smoke out who had means, motive, and
opportunity among the networking mothers—including a
husband-stealing Sofia Vergara lookalike. And the cat’s still not
out of the bag when a second violent death rocks the bucolic
community. Trouble may have nine lives, but Colbie’s only got one
to clear her name and stop a killer from pulling off the purr-fect
crime . . .
A California
native, Kathy Krevat has written three bestselling books involving
one of her favorite things: chocolate. She is looking forward to
changing to her next favorite thing—cats—for her new series set
in the tranquil town of Sunnyside, CA.
