Read an excerpt:
Review: This is a very unusual book. The main character turns into a cat at sundown, and then turns back into a human at sunrise. She wears a collar with a camera while she is a cat, which provides photos and videos for her freelance reporting job. Mutt, her dog, is her nightly sidekick and helps her out as much as he can. Her older brother is an FBI agent who has apparently blocked out any memory of her "condition.
When she is accused of being the ringleader of a series of robberies in her trailer park, and of trying to frame the kids in the park, she is determined to clear her name. When an elderly resident of the park is murdered, her situation gets even worse, as she is seen as the prime suspect.
This is one of the most fun mysteries I've read this year. It's unique, well written, and very easy to read. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys paranormal cozies.

Rating: Four stars
Author Bio:I live and write in the Indianapolis area. After earning a PhD in Computer Science in 2002 and teaching and researching for seven years, I’ve returned to the childhood dream of becoming an author. I better do it now because I won’t get a third life. Behind me, I have a ton of academic experience and have written about twenty extremely boring papers on query languages and such, for example this one in the ACM Transactions on Databases. (That’s a mouthful.) Now, I write in the mystery/thriller/suspense genres and sometimes science fiction. I know for some people databases would be the more beloved of the options, but for me, I finally realized that my heart wasn’t in it. So I took up a second life, as a self-published fiction author. Online, I do the Writer Cy cartoon series about the (mis)adventures of researching, writing, and self-publishing in today’s shifting climate. I also love to design and create my own covers using GIMP.
