Death by a Whisker: A Cat Rescue Mystery
by T. C. LoTempio – Paperback Edition

. . . a nice, enjoyable cozy mystery that I recommend to cozy mystery lovers, especially if you love animals.
~Carla Loves To Read

Death by a Whisker was a great fast paced page-turning read.
~My Reading Journeys

Syd tries her best not to “investigate” and ruin Will’s chances at a top spot on the force, but maybe her information could help him. I appreciated her turmoil over choosing her actions.
~Laura’s Interests*

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and I felt like I was right there, involved in the story personally.
~MJB Reviewers*

DEATH BY A WHISKER is an absolutely riveting cozy . . . There’s a fine large cast of characters, plenty of animals, lots of tension and suspense and budding romance, anger, infidelity, success, and failure . . .
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies

Death By a Whisker by T.C. LoTempio was a pretty different book in terms of a cozy. We have everything that makes a cozy a cozy in this book, but the murder was weird. It took me for a spin, and I do have to say that I was enthralled and wanted to know who killed her.
~Baroness’ Book Trove

Crisp writing and a fast-paced storyline kept me quickly turning the pages easily following the multiple suspects and many motives.
~Cozy Up With Kathy*

The mystery was well done. Very nicely plotted by author LoTempio.

Getting used to life back home in Deer Park, North Carolina, Sydney McCall and her right-hand tabby, Toby, are helping her sister Kat run the local animal shelter. Syd and Kat are all excited about the prospect of the shelter’s newest fundraiser: shopping channel queen Ulla Townsend. Shelter admin Maggie Shayne vehemently refuses to have anything to do with the woman, but the fundraiser ensues as planned. That is, until Ulla turns up dead in the middle of the event.

The cause of death is determined to be an allergic reaction, but Syd and Toby are sniffing out something fishy. When Syd met Ulla, it was clear she was distasteful and rude. And right before the event, Syd spotted some behind-the-scenes drama between Ulla and her manager. As they begin to investigate, they realize there is no shortage of suspects, and Maggie is at the top of the list.

Now Syd and Toby must claw their way to the truth before everything goes paws up at their animal shelter in Death by a Whisker by national bestselling author T. C. LoTempio.
