Getting used to life back home in Deer Park, North Carolina, Sydney McCall and her right-hand tabby, Toby, are helping her sister Kat run the local animal shelter. Syd and Kat are all excited about the prospect of the shelter’s newest fundraiser: shopping channel queen Ulla Townsend. Shelter admin Maggie Shayne vehemently refuses to have anything to do with the woman, but the fundraiser ensues as planned. That is, until Ulla turns up dead in the middle of the event.

The cause of death is determined to be an allergic reaction, but Syd and Toby are sniffing out something fishy. When Syd met Ulla, it was clear she was distasteful and rude. And right before the event, Syd spotted some behind-the-scenes drama between Ulla and her manager. As they begin to investigate, they realize there is no shortage of suspects, and Maggie is at the top of the list.

Now Syd and Toby must claw their way to the truth before everything goes paws up at their animal shelter in Death by a Whisker by national bestselling author T. C. LoTempio.

Review of Death by a Whisker

Review (4 Stars): Death by a Whisker was a charming cozy mystery that had a strong heroine and a furry side-kick that you will instantly adore.  Sydney is currently helping her sister, Kat, with a fundraiser to help the local shelter that they run and is so excited to have a celebrity guest helping with the cause.  When their guest is found dead in the middle of the event, Sydney must follow the clues to find a killer before she is put behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit.

This is the second book in the Cat Rescue mystery series and I love mysteries that involve a furry side-kick. This book is fun, well-written and I enjoyed spending more time with Sydney’s smart personality after meeting her in Purr M for Murder.  Can’t wait to read what is next for Sydney and Toby in the next installment of the series.
