What I Like About Chase Oliver

by Tanner
from FAT CAT TAKES THE CAKE by Janet Cantrell

GIVEAWAY BELOW



I’ll bet you were going to say, “Wait, don’t you mean what you like about Mallory, that hottie who works for Ms. Oliver?” That goes without saying. Mallory is hot, no denying.

But Ms. Oliver is pretty awesome, in a different way. See, the thing is, she’s way older than I am. She’s ancient. I think about thirty-something. I mean, old, right?

Here’s the thing, though. She doesn’t say anything, not anything at all about my eyebrow piercing, or my nose ring. It’s like she’s never even noticed I paint my fingernails black. All she cares about is what I can do with a computer. And, I mean, I can make a computer sit up and dance, tell me all its secrets, run around in circles. There’s not much online that’s mystery to me. And Chase Oliver appreciates that.

I know she’s keeping me away from her business partner, Anna Larson. She’s even older than Ms. Oliver, so she probably wouldn’t have the same attitudes at all. But that’s cool. Ms. Oliver is paying me for what I find out.

I can’t tell you any of it, but it’s going to blow the lid off when this all comes out. There are some people in this neighborhood who aren’t the people you’d think they were.

Janet, the author, here. I hope you’ve read Fat Cat Takes the Cake and have met Tanner. If you haven’t, I’ll give you a chance to win a free paperback book here. Please either leave your email below or message me with it and I’ll pick a winner on Saturday night (announcing on Sunday).

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