Description

"Excellent....These Joe Grey mysteries will stay popular for many years to come."

-Tampa Tribune



Kirkus Reviews says that award-winning author Shirley Rousseau Murphy has "raised the stakes of the feline sleuth genre." In Cat Playing Cupid, Murphy's fourteenth delightfully sophisticated whodunit to feature Joe Grey and his furry friends Dulcie and Kit, the feline P.I. is on a mission to stop a crime spree that endangers love on Valentine's Day. The winner of seven straight Muse Medallions from the national Cat Writers Association, Murphy's Joe Grey novels are the "cat's meow"-as doggone good as Rita Mae Brown's "Sneaky Pie," Carole Nelson Douglas's "Midnight Louie," and Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who...books.

Back cover copy

Love--and murder--are in the air . . .

It took Joe Grey's human, Clyde Damen, nearly forever to pop the question to his girlfriend, Ryan Flannery, and what more romantic time to tie the knot than on Valentine's Day? But dark secrets from the past soon threaten to destroy everyone's happiness.

First, a body discovered many miles away reopens a ten-year-old cold case involving a man who disappeared days before his own wedding. Then another body is found closer to home on the grounds of a ruined estate, deserted save for a band of unusual feral cats.

Though the police investigate, only Joe Grey suspects that the crimes are related. And when he barely escapes alive from a deadly chase, Joe and his friends, Dulcie and Kit, know they'll need to use their powers of feline perception to bring justice to the small town of Molena Point . . . and save Valentine's Day!
