Giveaway!! Of Cats and Colors

By Lani Nakano of the Gourmet Cat Mystery series by Kathy Krevat

Hi! I’m Lani Nakano, Colbie Summers’ best friend in the Gourmet Cat Mystery series by Kathy Krevat.  

Colbie runs the Meowio Batali Gourmet Cat Food Company specializing in organic, human grade food for cats with issues or cat owners who want the best for their pets. She started making food for her cat Trouble when she was just a tiny kitten and couldn’t keep anything down. Then her friends started asking for it for their cats, and soon after, Meowio was born! 

We’ve been bffs for ages, ever since I volunteered to design costumes for her son Elliott’s junior musical theater group. I own Find Your Re-Purpose, and I create new designer clothing with used clothes. Some think my designs are a bit too adventurous, but I love creating something new and beautiful from the old.

In THE TROUBLE WITH TRUTH (out August 28), Colbie may have gone a little too far – she’s hiding a suspected killer! Of course, Mira is an ex-foster kid who works for her and Colbie knows she isn’t capable of murder. But Mira had a good reason to kill the biggest housing developer in Sunnyside, California. But then, it seems like a lot of other people did too!

Now for the Giveaway! Okay, name TWO COLORS that you think absolutely do NOT go together for a chance to win a Kindle copy of the first book in the series, THE TROUBLE WITH MURDER.  I might just prove you wrong in a future book!

BTW, our author, Kathy Krevat, has written another great series writing as Kathy Aarons. Here are the covers of the Chocolate Covered Mystery books.

  1. Orange and pink has never struck me as a good combination. Love your covers, by the way! mbradeen [at] yahoo [dot] com

    1. Thank you! The cover artist is awesome! I have to agree about orange & pink, but now I have to google it.

    2. Pink's my favorite color. I love it with orange, yellow, lime or avacado green & turquoise too.

    3. Crazy Cat Lady, it probably depends on the exact colors, and I'm sure some shades of orange and pink look just fine together. If it works for you, go for it!

      Delete
  2. Lime green and lilac

    1. That's so funny - Lani uses that combo in The Trouble With Truth! Here's the paragraph: "When I got closer, I could see that she’d created the dress by sewing together panels using three very different patterns, each containing lavender and green. It should have been a disaster, but instead it was fabulous."

  3. Orange and Red. I wore a bright orange polo shirt with my red volunteer apron once and had MANY comments on how blinding the combo was. Zibbby (at) google (dot) com

    1. They seem similar enough to me to work - maybe it depends on the shade? Good luck!

  4. Purple and orange. Both series look great. I used to have a pet sitting client who could have used this food. Poor little guy. ckmbeg (at) gmail (dot) com

    1. I've learned a lot about cat digestive issues! I agree with the purple and orange, but Lani can surprise you. Good luck!

  5. For me, it has always been red and orange. I know they are analagous colours (beside each other on the color wheel), and that you can use analagous color schemes, but just those 2 together always makes me cringe.

    1. Like I responded above, I think it's all about the shade. Good luck!

  6. That's a hard one. As a painter, I think they can all be made to serve side by side.

    1. You must be much better at colors than me. I read years ago that some people have more rods and cones in their eyes and can see many more variations in shades than most people. Good luck!

  19. Navy & black. I don't think they do anything at all for each other. Go either all navy or all black.
    And, I know I'm the minority, but I love pink & orange.

  25. In today's day and age, it seems like colors you don't believe would work together are now acceptable. If I had to choose two colors that make my eyes hurt it is neon pink and lime green. The thing that drives me over the edge is the mixture of patterns. Plaid with flowers is too much for me. robeader53(at)yahoo(dot)com
