A Firecracker of a Giveaway

by Hilda Bjorn of Dinkytown
from the FAT CAT series by Janet Cantrell

GIVEAWAY BELOW



I’ve been here once before, last fall, when dear Janet was giving away a large print copy of FAT CAT AT LARGE. She’s at it again, and my tired old eyes are grateful for another large print book. This time it’s FAT CAT SPREADS OUT.

You know, that cat, Quincy, turns up everywhere. He’s a sweetie and he loves for me to feed him. I had my neighbor, Professor Fear, take me to the fair to get some Raspberry Chiffon Bars from the booth those nice women set up. That would be Ms. Chase Oliver and Anna Larson, the ones who own the Bar None dessert bar shop.

Who do you suppose we saw napping on a display case? A cat that looked exactly like Quincy! Chase hurried off when we told her that, but Anna boxed up some treats for us. They didn’t bring my favorites to the Bunyon County Fair, but these pumpkin flavored Harvest Bars look and smell delicious. I’ll bet Quincy would like them. Next time he gets out and comes to my house, I’ll give him some.

It’s me, Janet, the author. I have one copy of the second book in the series, FAT CAT SPREADS OUT, in large print to give away. Please either leave your email below or message me with it. I’ll pick a winner at the end of Friday and mail it to you!

FAT CAT SPREADS OUT is the second mystery in the Fat Cat series. Please
check Janet’s webpage for ordering links.


A booth at the Bunyan County Harvest Fair seems like the perfect opportunity for Charity “Chase” Oliver and Anna Larson to promote their Bar None bakery business. Unfortunately, plus-sized pussycat Quincy has plans for their delicious dessert bars other than selling them to customers. After tearing through their inventory, Quincy goes roaming the fairgrounds in search of more delights.

But what he finds is murder. One of the top contenders in a butter-sculpting contest has been killed, and Chase is churning on the inside when she sees Quincy’s handsome veterinarian, Dr. Mike Ramos, being led away by the police. With a little help from a kitty with butter on his whiskers, Chase needs to find the real killer and clear the doctor’s good name…
