It’s beginning to look a lot like arson this Christmas season…

 

The Cat Café is buzzing with excitement this holiday season as they prepare for the Holiday Fur Ball & Silent Auction. As Tinsley and her crew put the finishing touches on the treats and decorations, she can’t help but daydream about the new animal shelter she hopes to build with the money from the auction.

 

The excitement soon fizzles, however, when a fire breaks out at the café with the fur babies inside. Thankfully, they’re rescued by firefighters and all safe and sound. But everyone at the Cat Café is shocked when the fire’s cause is determined to be arson. With the future of the new shelter now on shaky ground, Tinsley knows what she must do.

 

She must find the culprit before they try again. Even if she has to work with the handsome but know-it-all representative from the ball’s big tech sponsor, Nick Greenly.

 

Perhaps rescue cat Jingle and his feline friends may have some ideas that could help solve the case? But time is running out…can they pinch the Grinch before he or she ruins the Holiday Fur Ball and spoils everyone’s Christmas too?

 

Find out the fate of the beloved Cat Café and the new shelter and brighten your holidays by reading Christmas CAT-astrophe today!

When New Yorker, Abby Bradshaw, visits her sister, Amy, for the summer in Hope Ridge, she’s looking forward to a break, a chance to heal, and some peace. Abby has been through the emotional ringer and needs a breather, an opportunity to push the reset button.

What she gets instead is a constant barrage of unexpected turmoil. From the police showing up on her sister’s porch the second she arrives in Hope Ridge, to disturbing encounters with the neighbors, this definitely isn’t the small, friendly town Abby envisioned.

However, nothing prepares her for being a person of interest in a double homicide. The lead detective believes Abby is hiding something and refuses to allow her to return to New York.

Despite her new friends, Caroline and Vanessa rallying around her, and a sweet foster dog at her side, Abby faces an uphill battle at every turn. Even the handsome veterinarian, who has piqued her interest, gives her pause. She’s not sure who she can trust, including herself.

Is Abby guilty or is she an unwilling pawn in a plot of revenge?

Deadly Deception is a thrilling journey to uncover the secrets that threaten to shatter the perfect picture of Marcie and her family.



She paused at the top of the stairs. It had been two years since she’d felt this paralyzed. The day the officers had told her about her family, to be precise. She drew in a deep breath as she realized she’d been paralyzed ever since.

It was time to take control.

With determination, she tackled the closest box. After three boxes, now marked for charity, she understood she was still procrastinating on what she had come to do.

With renewed purpose she surveyed the boxes until she found what she’d really been looking for; her husband’s work belongings. Bold letters indicated the content. WORK FILES. Would she find what she needed in this first box?

She used the scissors to cut the packing tape and gingerly lifted the flap. She quickly realized the files were old and only records of completed cases. They were the first to visit her father’s shredder.

Tears slipped as she fed the paper to the machine. Her husband’s life was reduced to a container of shredded paper. He’d been on his way to the top. Though he hadn’t talked much about the account he’d hoped to land that fateful day, she had felt his anticipation almost as if it had been her own. His excitement had told her it was something special. She sat back on her heels as she realized something. He was keeping it a secret because he was going to surprise her with whatever it was when he landed it.

Three boxes later she found, POLICE FILES. Her stomach churned, she swallowed down her trepidation. Come on Marcie. Where is that woman full of grit? She could almost hear Jonas say the words.

She used the back of her hand to swipe at the dampness on her cheeks. Her hands trembled so hard she was barely able to open the flaps. Once done, she realized she was staring across the room at the wall. Unwilling to look inside, she closed her eyes a moment. Lowering her head, she drew air into her lungs and held it there. Her eyes slowly opened as she released her breath.

Plastic. It took a moment for her to understand what she was looking at. The bag with all of her husband’s personal effects from the accident. She opened the bag and carefully pulled out the items one by one. At the bottom were her daughter’s hair clips and her favorite brush.

Her vision wavered as she turned her attention to the contents of the box. She reached for Tori’s backpack. Frozen characters in the background and Olaf happily dancing in the forefront. Her throat clogged with the tears that wanted to continue to fall.

“Oh, Tori you loved that snowman.” She swiped at her cheeks. “They have another one out, Frozen II. We could have gone…”

Her words ended in a sob, she pulled the pack to her face and inhaled, hoping for a whiff of her daughter.
