Title: Kat Out of the Bag
Author: Wendy Kendall
Genre: Cozy Mystery
When celebrated international purse designer, Katherine Watson, hosts a gala for her Purse-onality Museum, she never expected the next day's headline to read: 'Murder at the Gala Premiere.' But after a dead body is found during the event, that's exactly what happened. Working to solve the murder, Katherine matches wits with local cop Jason Holmes and his K-9 partner, Hobbs. Although Holmes and Watson disagree often, they discover an undeniable attraction building between them. But they'll have to put their feelings on hold and focus on solving the murder, before Katherine becomes the killer's next knock off.
The knocking on the window startled them all, including Purrada who squeaked loudly as she rolled off the bench and galloped out the door to the kitchen and beyond. Michael Clarke himself was outside looking in at the scene. He smiled and waved broadly.
Katherine waved back and tried to roll the front of the whiteboard to face further away from the window's view, but it seemed to be stuck on something and wasn't budging. She pushed harder and it threatened to tip over. She steadied it. Amber was out on the porch with him now and had taken his hand in both of hers. Katherine frowned as she wrestled with the board.
Pam said, “Your suspect list is stuck on the rug, dear.” Pointing out the window she added, “Are we seeing the first clues to a budding romance?”
Katherine adjusted the wheels and then turned the board to the wall. Worry etched lines into Katherine's face as she said, “Is it romance, or a clever young man covering his tracks?”
