When a singer at an engagement party dies, 1920s detectives, Grace and Jack, and cool cat sleuths , Tatania and Zeus, pounce on the trail of a killer that leads to TiJuana and a bootlegger’s doll: Cupcake Kitty.
“Magical white cat Tatania became impatient with her humans. She could smell a succulent sea bass on the other side of the door. To encourage her humans to open it, she emitted a deaf cat’s glass shattering meow. Zeus, her black and white feline companion, responded to her meow by putting his paws over his head and his rear end up in the air.
“How would you feel about spending a lot of time with me?” Jack asked.
“I feel like I already have,” Grace said.
“It only gets better.” He held up her hand and admired the emerald and diamond ring he’d bought her at Jessop & Sons jewelers last month. He moved it from her forefinger to her ring finger.
He opened the door to the Hotel del Coronado’s Crown Room. A band played the Charleston for enthusiastic dancers. In the center of the dance floor, there was an ice sculpture of two magnificent cats.
“What’s going on?””
“Our engagement party.”
“Why were you so sure I’d say yes?”
