Publisher Description

Shell McMillan and her furry sidekicks aren’t kitten around when they set out to catch a killer . . .

When her TV series is canceled, struggling actress Shell McMillan considers it a blessing in disguise. A beloved aunt who recently died left her a pet shop in her will, and she sees it as the perfect chance to walk away from Hollywood and make a fresh start in the sleepy town of Fox Hollow. 

But adjusting to small-town life won’t be easy, as Shell realizes when the head of the museum board is found murdered not long after Shell had a very public argument with her. And when the new kid in town is fingered for the crime, she’ll have to rely on her own wit and pluck and the kindness of strangers to get herself off the hook. 

Desperate to exonerate herself and catch the real culprit, Shell begins digging into the lives of the local residents, and she quickly discovers that the victim had no shortage of enemies. As the suspect list grows and time runs short, Shell and her cats will have to claw their way out of danger—and it’s meow or never . . .

“A buoyant start to a new series . . . Fans of feline mysteries will relish The Time for Murder Is Meow’s pet shop framework in this story of finding one’s second act.” —Foreword Reviews

“An entertaining series debut . . . Feline-loving cozy fans will be satisfied.” —Publishers Weekly

Brilliant Debut

Absolutely brilliant! This story brought everything to start this series off right! I wanted to crawl inside its pages and be one of the characters. I wanted the story to continue with 10 more chapters after the wrap-up just because I was hooked on the lives of the characters. I found myself laughing, grinning, dropping my jaw, rolling my eyes, and a myriad of other things to annoy or amuse those around me. I only meant to get started on the book before bed and I ended finishing it in time to watch the sunrise. Even better, there’s a recipe to try! Sign me up for the next book and fingers crossed it comes soon!

Thank you to NetGalley, T.C. LoTempio, and Beyond the Page Publishing for giving me the chance to read this story and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.
