The mystery was well written and the killer completely took me by surprise.
~Bookworm Cafe

Cat About Town captured my attention from the first paragraph, with its detailed description of JJ the cover cat, as the cat spies on the main character.
~Jane Reads

This is the first book in a new series, and it was a great start to a new series.
~Melina’s Book Blog

Intelligent, well written, atmospheric, witty at times, full of heart, and downright entertaining … Cat About Town is an outstanding beginning to a new series by seasoned author, Cate Conte.
~The Power of Words

Maddie and precious little JJ are just about the sweetest pair I’ve ever seen in a cat cozy. Their instantaneous bond was very realistic and gives proof to the theory that our pets find us, not the other way around.
~Melissa’s Mochas Mysteries and Meows

I think this is a great debut book for this series. The characters are vivid and come to life on each page…
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…

The book flowed along, was easy to read, and I enjoyed every bit of the story.
~Sapphyria’s Books

The mystery was top notch. A variety of suspects with means, motive and opportunity drew me deeper and deeper into the story.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

Familial love with an interesting dynamic, secondary characters with depth, and an orange cat you can’t help but love combine with humor to make a fine mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

I was excited to find another series that involves cats, and especially a cat cafe. This book does not disappoint!
~Book Babble

This cozy mystery had everything I love: a great mystery, a main character I liked, and a cat who was full of personality.
~Brooke Blogs

Cat About Town is well written with interesting characters. I would highly recommend this book to cozy mystery fans!

Cat About Town
Minotaur Books (August 1, 2017)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1250072061

The first novel in a frisky new mystery series set in a small New England town, where an unlikely citizen is called in to solve the purrfect crime. . .

Maddie James has arrived in Daybreak Island, just off the coast of Massachusetts, eager to settle down and start her own business—and maybe even fall in love. When a stray orange tabby pounces into her life, she’s inspired to open a cat café. But little does Maddie know that she’s in for something a lot more catastrophic when her new furry companion finds the dead body of the town bully. Now all eyes are on Maddie: Who is this crazy cat-whisperer lady who’s come to town? If pet-hair-maintenance and crime-fighting weren’t keeping her busy enough, Maddie now has not one but two eligible bachelors who think she’s the cat’s pajamas . . . and will do anything to win her heart. But how can she even think about happily-ever-after while a killer remains on the loose—and on her path?
