Cat Book Feature: Harry the Wonder Cat: The Legend of the Pink Diamond by Denise Brixey

Harry, the Wonder Cat, is no ordinary cat! Two centuries ago, he had received eternal life and extraordinary powers.  He was ordered to use his gifts to care for the Johnson family, helping them through life's ups and downs. 



Fast forward to the present. This story begins when Nikki Johnson, accompanied by her close friend Heather Murphy, had planned her annual quiet and relaxing Christmas visit to Harrot Reef to visit her beloved Aunt Lynn. Plans changed when Nikki’s aunt summoned her to come earlier because something was terribly wrong. The two friends arrived the next day to a shocking discovery. Loud howling led them to the library where they found Aunt Lynn’s crumpled body lying on the floor with her cat, Harry, next to her. The two women landed in the middle of a mystery. The only clues consist of a teacup, a copy of Agatha Christie’s “The Mysterious Affair at Styles”, and a note on the mantle. 

Sheriff O’Neil, who has had it out for the Johnsons since Nikki’s father stole the girl that he loved, saw this as a perfect chance for revenge.  What could be better than to have the last of the  oldest family in Harrot Reef, behind bars for the murder of her own aunt?

When Nikki gets bailed out by her friend, Heather, they team up with the deputy to find the real killer.  Little do they know, Harry  is using his magic to save the day.  This Christmas visit was going to be anything but quiet and relaxing.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Denise Brixey grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, where she studied writing.  During her many years of living in a big city from birth into adulthood, she had more than her share of challenges. When she left the big city life to move up to a small town in the Gold Country, Denise volunteered at a cat rescue. She soon discovered that, while she was working to save them, it was she who was magically being rescued by the cats! 

Felines have been a meaningful part of Denise’s world ever since: starring in blogs, social media pages, and currently, her new book series. Although he’s been physically absent for years, the original Harry, a.k.a. Monkeyface, continues to magically impact her life through his teleportation that continues to fuel Denise’s passion for writing and love for her cats. Harry will live forever, so Denise started her series, Harry, the Wonder Cat, to share all his antics and spread meaning and joy to the lives of readers. You can follow Denise on her blog Harry the Wondercat

In full Disclosure: this book is presented as a "feature" because I have not read the book. I think the world of Denise, and when she approached me asking me if I would feature her book, I happily agreed to do so.
