Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #47 featuring Cats Can't Shoot: A Pru Marlowe Pet Noir

Welcome To

With me, Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Welcome to another wunderpurr Wednesday on the blog.  I'm so excited as my supurr exclusive Crotchety Cougars Red Bonnet arrived on Monday from 15andMeowing - now this is such a great honour as mew can't join The Crotchety Cougars Club until mew are 15, which as of next Tuesday I will be, but appurrently until then I'm not allowed to see, touch, wear or even sniff my new bonnet on the P.A. orders.  

She said and I quote, "Amber it's not your birthday for another six days, you have to wait!"

"PHOOOOEY!"  I harrumphed and stomped off to my library in sheer disgust.

But let me tell me I will get to sneak a peek in that envelope when the Tyrannical Overlord aka the P.A. isn't looking! MOL 

Oh and moving on now, mew remember that we're on the Halloween Trail of Spooky Weirdness throughout this month and today I'm sharing another picture the P.A. took on October's full moon while she was stood in the courtyard.  It's not as creepy as last weeks but still....

OMC what's that blue thing above the clouds?  And it's purretty big... EEEEEEK...  It wasn't in the previous pictures either, as the P.A. always takes 2 or 3 of the same thing - don't ask why, I don't know, she's just a bit nuts! MOL

And no it wasn't a satellite, or a plane, or a helicopter, or a radio-active wurm, or even a big glowy blue-burd!

Idea's anyone?

While mew ponder on the mystery of the blue orb, I think it's time fur this weeks book, so let's hop to it...

This week I'm sharing

Cats Can't Shoot 

A Pru Marlowe Pet Noir 


Clea Simon

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

When Pru Marlowe gets the call that there's been a cat shooting, she's furious. Animal brutality is the one thing that this tough animal psychic won't stand for, and in her role as a behaviorist she's determined to care for the traumatized pet. But when Pru finds out that the cat "did" the shooting - accidentally setting off a rare dueling pistol - she realizes something else is going on. 

*    *    *

Cats Can't Shoot is the furst in the Pru Marlowe Pet Mystery Series and it didn't disappoint at all.  Pru can read the minds of animals, which is a gift I wish the P.A. had then she'd know exactly what I want and when I want it without me having to find her and tell her in purrson! MOL

But seriously this book has it all, suspense, drama, really good characters, a nice plot to lead mew along and keep turning those pages or in my case binge-listening.

Pru's cat Wallace is a great character and I'm hoping as the series progresses becomes more front and centre, and it's read by one of my favourite narrators too, Tavia Gilbert.

If mew haven't read or listened to this, I really think mew should, mew won't be disappointed.

Sadly it's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and don't furget that I'll be back next week with another specially paw-picked book just fur mew.

 Next week I'll be doing Wordy on Wednesday on Tuesday as it's my BIRTHDAY - WOOOO HOOOOO!

Happy reading or listening
