Can’t Wait for the Reunion!

by Eddie Heath
from the FAT CAT series by Janet Cantrell

This is perfect! I just got an invitation to a reunion for our high school class. It’s funny, but lately I’ve been thinking about Chase Oliver. I’ll bet she’ll be there.

Eddie Heath here. I’m a good guy, really. But I don’t always do the right thing. Like what I did to Chase in high school. I was a coward back then. I broke up with her a week before prom. I saw her looking at me all night, too, from the corner with all the single girls. Maybe I can make it up to her at the reunion.

She ought to be glad to see me. She liked me a lot, I remember. I’ve stayed in good shape. I was in terrific shape in high school, played football and basketball. No wonder she wanted to go out with me. But, I have to admit, I’m in just as good shape now. I worship my body as a temple and treat it right. Exercise and the right food. Strictly vegan. No processed food for me.

Why wouldn’t she be thrilled to see me? I’m God’s gift to women. I’m sure everyone knows that.

Wait a minute, what’s this? It’s been 14 years since we graduated. I wonder why we’re having a 14-year reunion. That seems a little strange.

FAT CAT TAKES THE CAKE is the third mystery in the Fat Cat series, coming April 5th. Please check Janet’s webpage for preorder links.

When their former classmate Richard “Dickie” Byrd throws a high school reunion to gather support for his mayoral campaign, it drums up some not-so-sweet memories for dessert shop proprietor Chase Oliver and her friend Julie Larson. Julie would rather not reconnect with Ron North, the creepy kid who had a crush on her back in the day. His social graces haven’t exactly improved with age, but is he creepy enough to kill?

The next day, Chase is in the park testing a new cat harness for Quincy, who quickly proves that he cannot be leashed. But when his escape leads Chase to Ron’s body, the police wonder who else got away. Now, with Julie suspected of murder, Chase must prove her innocence before the real killer plans another fatal reunion.

Includes dessert bar recipe and leash training tips for cats!


  1. I am not a fan of class reunions and have only gone to two of my H.S. reunions but story lines that revolve around class reunions have always caught my interest and I must say I've enjoyed them.

  2. I have never gone to a class reunion but this reunion sounds like a fun read!

  3. I love class reunions. I love catching up and seeing all the good stuff
    everyone is up to. Good luck with that 14 year reunion.....

  4. I went to one and that was enough for me

  5. Eddie looks like a stinker. Not very sentimental, so have never gone to a class reunion. but this does look like a fun read Della

  6. I managed to find a baby sitter for my 10 year H.S. reunion. After that I just couldn't afford the cost of attending (hotel room, gas and tolls, and the dinner costs). So now I just keep in touch using the Class of '65 group page on FB. Of course my graduating class had something like 1200 members. LOL

  7. Last October, I co-chaired our 50th High School reunion. We had over 200 people show. What a blast. We even had a band from back in the day and danced the night away.Go, you'll love it.

  8. I think a 50th high school reunion would be a ton of fun. I'll admit, I've only been to a few, but they were fun for me. Thanks for the conversation, all!

  9. I meant to post the above as Janet, not Kaye. Got confused about who I was for a moment--it happens.

  10. I'm not interested in class reunions but the series sounds fun. I'd like to meet Quincy.

  11. I hope Eddie gets what he deserves for having dumped Chase before their prom.

  12. I hope you read it and see. :) He's a cad, isn't he? He does have one appealing quality.

  13. Eddie sounds like trouble to mer.

    1. I'll have to agree, he's bound to be trouble.
