Catch As Cat Can BY Rita Mae Brown

"The best friends come on four feet."  Sometimes the best detectives do too. When the suspicious death of the local lothario, and even more suspicious behavior of the deceased man's brother, casts a shadow over Crozet's annual Dogwood Festival and Wrecker's Ball, and eventually to another death, it will be up to Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen and her trio of pets, Mrs. Murphy, Tee Tucker and Pewter the cat, to cut to the heart of the matter before the killer gets away.

Grayson by Lynne Cox

Sometimes the journeys we take do not lead to the destinations we expect.  Sometimes while on these unplanned voyages we forge new friendships leading us to personal enlightenment.  Sometimes the friendships we build are with humans and, sometimes, the friends who teach us most do not walk on two legs.
