Let’s say you have a friend who has ten cats. She absolutely dotes on her cats. Nothing is too good for any of them! She’s known around your neighborhood as the “Cat Lady” for a reason. This friend knows you are passionate about Cozy Mystery books.
One day you let slip that you are reading a terrific Cozy Mystery series that features cats. Aha! She becomes intrigued and asks you to recommend one Cozy Mystery series that includes a cat or two.
Even though you read at least five Cozy series that feature cats – all of them are terrific Cozy reads, however she only wants one… Since you want to convert her into a Cozy Mystery reader you decide to only recommend the one you think ranks a little above the other Cat Cozies you read. So… you recommend the one Cat Cozy series you think should be included in all Cozy Mystery readers’ lists who love cats.
What one author/series would you suggest the “Cat Lady” begin with – and why?
Here’s the Cat Theme Mysteries : Kittens, Cats, and Cozies list on my site.
