Someone Is Missing!

by Chase Oliver of Dinkytown
from the FAT CAT series by Janet Cantrell

Now what? I’ve hired new workers lately and I thought things were going well. They’re showing up for work and helping sell lots of dessert bars at the Bar None. But now one of them is missing. I’ve talked to Anna, my business partner, but she doesn’t know where she is either. It’s been a long day and I’d like to collapse into bed.

Anna and I have been very busy at the Bunyon County Fair and our goodies are selling well, but we have to be here to tend our booth. Mike, Quincy’s vet has been accused of murder! I need to find out what’s happening there, too. How can I do that if I have to run around checking up on my employees.

No, Quincy, it’s not time for din dins yet. Quit meowing so loudly. The customers will hear you and they’ll think I’m mistreating you. Contrary to what you think, my fine tubby cat, feeding you twice a day, with snacks in between, is not animal abuse.

I wish you could talk, Quincy. I’ll bet you know where she is. Can you show me?

No, I don’t think curling up on my keyboard will help anything. I hope she turns up soon!

FAT CAT SPREADS OUT is the second mystery in the three book Fat Cat series. Please

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…
