Yesterday we celebrated the adorable dogs in our books, and now that September, aka Cat Month, is here, we need to pay tribute to our adorable feline friends. Here are 5 books for the cat lovers out there!
Into the Grey by Clea Simon
Grad student and cat lover Dulcie Schwartz discovers Professor Fenderby’s battered body in his office—and becomes the prime suspect in the murder investigation. Although she had good reason to dislike the late professor, Dulcie would never go so far as to murder him. But someone seems to be deliberately framing her for his death. Her academic career in jeopardy, Dulcie must find out the truth, and fast. But when she turns to Mr. Grey for advice, he seems strangely silent. Could the spirit of her wise grey cat really be fading from her life for good?
Texts From Mittens by Angie Bailey
Texts from Mittens is a series of text message conversations between a snappy, self-absorbed housecat named Mittens and his long-suffering human, a single woman who works away from home during the day. Mittens relentlessly hassles his human all day long, while only taking breaks to watch Judge Judy, hang with his best friend Stumpy, complain about the antics of Drunk Patty the neighbor, ask Grandma for money to buy useless items from QVC, and harass the “filthy beast” dog, Phil.
An Amish Christmas Journey by Patricia Davids
Toby Yoder promised to care for his orphaned little sister the rest of her life. After all, the tragedy that took their parents and left her injured was his fault. Now he must make a three-hundred-mile trip from the hospital to the Amish community where they’ll settle down. But as they share a hired van with pretty Greta Barkman, an Amish woman with a similar harrowing past, Toby can’t bear for the trip to end. Suddenly, there’s joy, a rescued cat named Christmas and hope for their journey to continue together forever.
Familiar Lullaby by Caroline Burnes
Patience and calmness under fire always got police detective Mel Haskin what he wanted. But he was fast losing both—because of Lily Markey. The fiery-haired, jade-eyed reporter refused to tell him what she knew about the baby boy who’d appeared on a high-society doorstep. And what she knew could get her killed. So Mel vowed to stick to Lily as closely as the black cat who followed her everywhere. Because his badge demanded it…or was it his heart?
Sheltered by the Millionaire by Catherine Mann
Texas tycoon Whit Daltry has always been a thorn in Megan Maguire’s side, especially when he tried to put the kibosh on her animal shelter. But when he saves her daughter during the worst tornado in recent memory, Megan sees beneath his prickly exterior to the hero underneath. Soon, the after-storm recovery makes bedfellows of these opposites. Until Megan’s old reflexes kick in—should she brace for betrayal or say yes to Whit once and for all?
