Meow! ROCCO here.
As you may know, the Human's new series debuted this Tuesday- right in the middle of a nor'easter that hit the East Coast! I tell you is that any way to make a debut or what!!!!!!!
PURR M FOR MURDER, the first in the Human's Cat Rescue series for Crooked Lane, is about Syd McCall. Syd was an advertising executive who chucked the bright lights of Manhattan for her hometown of Deer Park North Carolina after catching her finance cheating on her. Not only does Syd stumble across a dead body her first few weeks in town, but she has to become involved in the investigation when her sister Katherine (better known as "Kat") is the chief suspect!
Is there a dashing cat in this series, as in the human's Nick and Nora series? Well, yes. He's a handsome orange fellow named Toby. Toby's nickname is "The Wanderer" because he's got a habit of sneaking out of his cage and the shelter and wandering around the town. Many thought it was because he was searching for his "perfect human" and apparently that's true, because once he and Syd got together he seemed to settle down!
This all begs the question - is there such a thing as a "perfect human"?????? We cats would say "Heck no." Now a perfect cat.....there's another kettle of fish!!!!!!!!
Toby was modeled after my brother Maxx, who's rather a handsome fellow if I do say so myself. We have lots of fun together, and Maxx just loves it when I flip him over and bite his neck.......

Sydney McCall left behind an ex-fiancé and a New York advertising job to return home to Deer Park, North Carolina and help her sister, Kat, run the local animal shelter, Friendly Paws. Determined to save the shelter from financial trouble, Sydney and Kat organize a cat café fundraising event at a local coffee shop. Things are looking up until their landlord, Trowbridge Littleton, threatens to shut down the event. When Sydney drops by his art gallery to make peace, she finds Kat--along with Littleton's dead body.
Local homicide detective Will Worthington--who just happens to be Sydney's old high school crush--is highly suspicious of the sisters' involvement. Desperate to clear their names from the suspect list, Sydney pounces on the investigation. With the help of one of the shelter cats, a savvy orange tabby named Toby, Sydney begins poking her nose into other local businesses whose owners may have benefited from Littleton's death--until the killer notices she's pawing a little too closely at the truth
