Publisher: ShadowsSpinners Press
Cover Artist: Robin Ludwig Design Inc.
Series Blurb: Jacqui Corleone is a fashion designer, a yoga-instructor and a concerned citizen who selflessly helps the police solve crimes. Oh, and he occasionally turns into a small wild cat. Probably due to a wizard’s curse or an evil government plot to create super warriors.

Or, he’s a cat cursed to turn into a human and only the bite of a sexy alpha lion will allow him to remain in his superior form of Cat.

Jacqui does not have a split personality, but sometimes his cat personality can get rather loud.

Loud? You’re loud.

Jacqui Corleone is a cat shifter who doesn’t know why or how he turns into a cat. He lives a solitary life in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. He’s not afraid of intimacy (yes, he is) but sensibly refrains from potentially awkward entanglements. Unfortunately, the sexy new deputy sheriff just moved in across the street and Jacqui’s vow not to get mixed up with island dudes is sorely challenged.

When the mysterious disappearance of three blue pots draws Jacqui to investigate, he’s drawn ever deeper into danger–and into the arms of Deputy Wyatt West (you wish).

4✨s – This cozy mystery is all sorts of adorable. Jacqui, part-time human and snarky Cat, doesn’t know where he comes from or why he can transform. He only knows that the voice in his head is a bad influence, but that only makes being Cat all the more fun. But he’s got dangerous life-threatenings secrets, our Jacqui, big ones he’s hiding from the one person he considers a real friend, and especially from the guy he’s crushing on—the hot new Deputy Sheriff who had the audacity to live on a boat before he moved into a condo across the street.

What ensues is hilarious. A cute blend of paranormal in the real world setting, mysteries involving potted plants, credit card fraud, and marauding Rotties, more chemistry than Friday Harbor can contain, all mixed with on point snark between Jacqui and just about everyone in the books, including himself.

If you like a cozy mystery with an continuing thread and a magical twist, Jacqui is the cat won’t disappoint.
