My latest release is THE CASE OF THE PARROT LOVING PROFESSOR: Book 2 of my Buttercup Bend cozy mystery series.

My name is Debbie De Louise. I'm a reference librarian at a public library on Long Island and the award-winning author of the Cobble Cove cozy mystery series that consists of 6 books. I've also published six other standalone novels and a non-fiction cat book. All my books are available on Amazon in paperback and as eBooks and are part of the Kindle Unlimited program. A few are also in large print, hardcover, and audio. My psychological thriller, SEA SCOPE, is also in Spanish. I have a B.A. in English and an MLS in Library Science.

My first novel, a paranormal romance, CLOUDY RAINBOW, was written after my beloved cat, Floppy, died from diabetic and liver complications. The book was dedicated to him, and he is featured as a character in it. CLOUDY RAINBOW was reprinted by my publisher with fresh edits, a new cover, and a few updates.

My second novel, the first book of the Cobble Cove mystery series, A STONE'S THROW, is the story of a widowed librarian who visits her husband's hometown and finds a new love with the town's newspaper publisher but also discovers some alarming truths about her husband's death and its connection to the publisher and his family. Along with a variety of characters, there is also a cat and dog who play minor but interesting roles in the novel. The other books in my Cobble Cove series include BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE, WRITTEN IN STONE, LOVE ON THE ROCKS, and NO GRAVESTONE UNTURNED.

The Cobble Cove Stories, available as eBooks, include CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS WITH MY CHARACTERS, SNEAKY'S CHRISTMAS MYSTERY (winner of the 2020 Cat Writers' Association's Muse Medallion award), SNEAKY'S SUMMER MYSTERY, and KITTYKAI'S EASTER MYSTERY. These stories are included in a print edition along with a new story. The collection is called SNEAKY'S SUPERNATURAL MYSTERY AND OTHER COBBLE COVE STORIES.

My new cozy mystery series, The Buttercup Bend cozy mysteries, feature Cathy Carter who co-owns a pet rescue and animal cemetery in the small town of Buttercup Bend in the Catskills. In addition to her pet business, Cathy is also a photographer for the town's newspaper, THE BUTTERCUP BUGLE. Cathy's first adventure is in THE CASE OF THE CAT CRAZY LADY.

I've also published a romantic comedy novella, WHEN JACK TRUMPS ACE and three standalone mysteries, REASON TO DIE, SEA SCOPE, and MEMORY MAKERS. I've also written a time-travel novel, TIME'S RELATIVE. My non-fiction cat book, PET POSTS: THE CAT CHATS, features full-color photos of my cats and is told from the cats' points of view about feline health and behavior issues. This book was reprinted by Next Chapter with a new cover under the title MEMORIES AND MEOWS.

I'm a member of International Thriller Writers, Sisters-in-Crime, the Cat Writers' Association, and Long Island Authors Group and have published articles in Cats Magazine and Catnip (Tufts University Veterinary Newsletter). I won the Glamour Puss special award from Hartz Corporation for my article, "Brushing your cat for bonding, beauty, and better health," (June, 2016). My short mystery, "Stitches in Time" was published in the CAT CRIMES THROUGH TIME Anthology, (1999). I've published several other short stories of various genres in the RED PENGUIN COLLECTION of anthologies and have also been published in Red Penguin’s BLOOM LITERARY MAGAZINE. My poems are featured in the NASSAU COUNTY VOICES IN VERSE 2020 and 2022 anthology and the 2020 BARDS ANNUAL. I live on Long Island with my husband, Anthony; daughter, Holly; and our cats, Harry, and Hermione.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a clean cozy with lots of twists and turns that I am sure you will enjoy.
By MikiHope on January 4, 2019
If you read my review of Celebrating Christmas with My Characters by Debbie De Louise you will already have met a couple of character's who live in Cobble Cove.

Cobble Cove is a small town where most everyone knows one another but it is changing--it is becoming larger. The residents are gearing up for their big Christmas Fest and they get a lot of extra tourists at that time. They are finally thinking about hiring a Police Chief--they are also trying to get donations for the family of a little girl who needs a bone marrow transplant.

Then the unthinkable happens--the gift shop is broken into--and robbed! And there is a strange man hanging around town--he has followed Alicia home and another of the libraries employees has noticed him as well.

There are always secrets about people and more then a couple are revealed throughout the story.

Alicia's husband's sister has gifted them a vacation in a posh hotel--she wants to get to know her twin niece and nephew better--and really wants to give the new parents time off!! Alicia doesn't want to leave her babies but eventually goes--then comes that dreaded phone call no parent ever wants to get--their twins have been kidnapped--John's sister is in the hospital-and John's father's dog is drugged!-they rush back to Cobble Cove!

Will the mystery of the strange man be solved? Will they be able to track down the twins and find the culprit?

This is a clean cozy with lots of twists and turns that I am sure you will enjoy.
