"If you like Lilian Jackson Brown's and Rita Mae Brown's cat cozies, you'll love Trouble in Tallahassee by Claire Matturro. ...Matturro uses alternating viewpoints to great advantage. The technique lets readers in on secrets that one character knows and another doesn't. The result is delightful tension as readers wait for the moment when all will be revealed." Tallahassee Democrat
"Sharp, original and purr-fectly delightful. I'll never look at my feline the same again." --Celeste Fletcher McHale, award-winning author of The Secret of Hummingbird Cakeand The Sweet Smell of Magnolias and Memories "The little kitty called Trouble is no naughty Felix the Cat. Instead, the partially lost feline turns out to be a brilliant Tallahassee sleuth...Claire Matturro has fashioned a thoroughly creative take on the crime cozy in which an elaborate tangle of legal shenanigans takes place alongside romantic switcheroos. A perfect book for reading with your pet in your lap on a warm Tallahassee afternoon." --Marina Brown, award- winning author of Lisbeth and Land Without Mirrors."
