Romeow and Juliet is the first in a cozy mystery series set on Madrona Island, a fictional island within the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington State. As a fourth generation islander Caitlin Hart is struggling to make her way as the economy and culture of the island evolves toward a tourism based industry. Cait lives in a cabin on her aunt's oceanfront estate where she helps her aunt run Harthaven Cat Sanctuary. When she isn't working with the cats, she helps best friend Tara, operate the coffee bar/bookstore/cat lounge they own, named Coffee Cat Books.
In the first installment to the series Cait and her dog Max find the body of a member of the island council dead in the back room of the old fish cannery. As Cait delves into the murder she finds herself with an unlikely sleuthing partner that might just lead to a relationship of a more personal kind.
Meanwhile, Romeo, as stray cat that followed Cait home, is causing all sorts of problems for Cait as, in spite of dire warnings from the neighbor next door, he refuses to stay away from her very expensive show cat, Juliet. Could Romeo really be trying to tell Cait something about the neighbor that she initially refuses to see?
Huzzah! A new cozy mystery series by Kathi Daley to delve into! More kitties… more bodies… more mysteries! Caitlin is a twenty something that lives off a quaint and tourist island of the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington State. She runs a kitty sanctuary and lives on her own, sharing land with a feisty aunt who has fallen ill recently while running for a local political spot. Caitlin ends up juggling a new tomcat who is serenading a local grumpy neighbor’s show cat, a dead body, and an old lover.
Caitlin is a very sweet, caring, and humorous gal. Loved this story and how the town and its residents are quickly and lovingly built into this new series. Adored the side stories with her elderly neighbors and the not so silent town feuds. The great who-dun-it question and sudden, possible love triangle Caitlin finds herself just added to the charm of the story.
Delve into this new series with gusto! A much meowy romance.
Come for the murder, stay for the romance.
Kathi lives in the beautiful alpine community of Lake Tahoe with her husband Ken and dog Echo. When she’s not writing she enjoys hanging out on the beach with her children and grandchildren. During the summer she enjoys hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, wakeboarding, and sunset cruises on the lake. During the winter she enjoys cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and curling up by a fire with a good book.
Kathi uses her mountain home as inspiration for her books, all which include appearances by the wildlife she shares her life with.
