Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:


Susie Katz is known as the crazy cat lady of Longely, New York, and goes out of her way to earn the title, right down to her cat T-shirts and porcelain Hello Kitties. She's a fanatic for anything feline. Humans, not so much.

So when she decides to put up a tent on her property and hold an extravagant wedding ceremony for her two Russian blues, she makes sure to include a few two-legged guests-primarily to raise some hackles. All her favorite enemies will be there- her bird-loving neighbor, a rival cat breeder, a local animal rights activist, and the niece and nephew who stand to inherit her considerable fortune . . . if she doesn't spend it all on cat tchotchkes first. Susie can't wait for them all to watch as Boris and Natasha slink up the aisle in their very expensive diamond-studded collars, before everyone starts digging in to the poached salmon and caviar provided for the occasion by Bernie and Libby.

But chaos erupts when a wedding gift is unwrapped and a mischief of mice jump out of the box-followed by the disappearance of all the pampered partygoers. Just a few hours later, Susie is stabbed in the back while searching for her missing kitties near the now-empty tent-and it's up to the Simmons sisters to sniff out the killer . . .

Publishers Weekly Review

Crawford's amusing 14th mystery with recipes (after 2017's Catered Costume Party) finds sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons catering a cat wedding at an estate in Westchester, N.Y., owned by wealthy and eccentric Susie Katz, who demands top-notch caviar and artisanal salmon for her human and feline guests alike. A conniving woman of few friends, Suzie invites her rivals and enemies to witness the glamorous union between two Russian blues, but chaos ensues when she opens a mysterious package filled with live mice. Once Bernie and Libby retrieve all of Susie's cats from the predatory chase, they come across her dead body in her office, a letter opener stuck in her throat. After accidentally tampering with evidence, the sisters have one week to prove their innocence and find the killer. With the help of their retired police chief father and their boyfriends, Bernie and Libby confront several suspects, but not without getting into some dangerous situations. Cozy fans will enjoy the lively characters, irresistible food descriptions, and witty dialogue. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
