Cat and Man - a Deux for All Time
Shrieking and howling in her makeshift cage, Mo arrived unceremoniously with police escort at Cats Pause Feline Shelter. In this quaint and quiet wine-country township of Seven Oaks, Oregon, where daily excitement is measured in parking tickets and spilled pinot noir, Mo's 'mum' has been murdered! Suddenly orphaned and facing life as a shelter cat, Mo enlists new-found shelter feline friends, Phillip, Edward and Diana, to help her find mum's killer. Mo also teams up with shelter director, Kate Ferguson, to discover who did the deed, and a new cat detective is born. Kate and Mo investigate why a group of California investors is trying to buy up and develop valuable vineyard land. Through their links with the community and the local police, they discover that the intent of the buy-up is to destroy the delicate ecosystem of the Jory Hills AVA. A surprise discovery leads them down a path of intrigue and betrayal; by exposing the plot to ruin the land, they expose the murderer. Mo and Kate learn they are meant for each other, and soon realize their lives are intertwined in the universe - as telepaths - and as ambassadors for Cats Pause.

If you like mysteries and you love animals, you will love this book. From the moment I picked it up and the suspense of the first few chapters, I couldn't put it down until I read the last line. In anticipation of what Maureen writes next, one could only imagine but look forward to more cat mysteries very soon!
Maureen brings Mo the shelter cat to life! A great read for children and adults alike! My 9-year-old is is love with sweet Mo and the mysteries surrounding her.
I found this a unique approach to the cat cozy genre. What I liked was the interaction between the animals as they put their paws in to try and solve the murder, showing their compassion and intelligence for each other. That they seemed to understand the humans made it more interesting as well.I was particularly moved by interaction between the owner and Mo himself. The pages dealing with the running of the shelter and the attitude of the town itself in its strong support of it were also great to see! The geographic information and location discussion were a bit too long in my estimation,though I do understand what it brings to the story.
I liked the she handled the cats personalites,but I was not sure if I was in Oregon or London.
