Cat About Town
Cat About Town | Cate Conte
17 posts | 4 read | 6 to read
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? Curl up with Cate Conte's first Cat Cafe Mystery: Cat About Town!

It‘s quite obvious my favorite #animal is a cat. My first word, other than Dad and Mom, was kitty!

My favorite escape type books are cozy mysteries. Many cozies tend to feature cats, as either part of the detecting team, or the amateur sleuth adopts one. Here‘s a newish one - set in a cat cafe! I know absolutely nothing about it, other than I had to buy it. #SebastianKitty is a reluctant model. #ayupaugust #catsoflitsy

Cinfhen #CatsOfLitsy always a popular choice 😻 5d
Sresendez12 My daughter‘s second word (after dada) was kit kit. She would point at our cats every time they walked by and say kit kit. 5d

I love cats and cozy mysteries. So both together is magic! I didn‘t figure out the murdered, which is always fun. I liked it so much I already picked up book two. #cozymystery #readwomen

My #bookhaul from my Barnes and Noble spree. Of course I had to take advantage of the double member‘s discount this weekend.

This cozy mystery is the first in a new series. It was a cute, quick read. That said, it introduced a whole cast of characters that was hard to keep track, especially of the three men pursuing the MC. She seems to have difficulty keeping them all separate, as well. Many thanks to @bookish_wookish for this gift given during the #cozymysteryswap. #Mykola #CatsOfLitsy

My beautiful Paris pussycat! I‘m sure she was an old, wise person in a previous life. Some days she just sits and watches people for ages, and to me, it‘s like she doing an evaluation of them, or something❤️❤️

“Interesting. I was getting the sense that smaller businesses were the redheaded stepchildren of the chamber overlords.”
Who else has heard this unusual expression? I never heard about a redheaded stepchild until I moved to East Tennessee, but this book takes place in New England.

Yellowpigeon I've heard/used it a lot. But I'm from Memphis and Nashville and have family in East Tennessee. So... Might be biased. 2y
CatLass007 @Yellowpigeon I always thought it was just a regional thing. Maybe it‘s a TENNESSEE thing. 2y

CatLass007 @mcipher Good to know. I just was wondering. 2y
tif I've heard it and I'm in Australia :) 2y
CatLass007 @tif I guess I just lived a sheltered life before I moved here. Lots of redheads in our family. 2y
tif @CatLass007 maybe the proliferation of redheads in your family meant people didn't use the phrase around you at risk of offending 😆 2y
Andrea4 It's an expression I've heard in Ontario... but who knows how these things travel; it was from a northener and they do have some odd expressions. 2y
CatLass007 @andrea4 Those of us from Appalachia also have unusual sayings. 2y
Scurvygirl We used it growing up in Massachusetts and I say it to my teenager all the time...😹 2y
readinginthedark Some people say it here in Missouri, but I've heard it more from friends East of here. 2y

Miss Molly says she is cozy here at home and is glad not to be a CAT ABOUT TOWN like JJ. She says no respectable cat wears a leash; those are for dogs. She says she wouldn‘t mind being part of a Cat Cafe family, though. Being petted and admired like the queen she is is the only way things should be. When reminded that she‘s lactose intolerant, her majesty pouted; she was hoping for some of the forbidden people food. It is a Cat Cafe, after all.
