cat lover loves Midnight Louie

I had to check since I saw this was the 19th? It doesn't seem that long ago! But she keep the series fresh. I really enjoy Nelson's books, even her new one Dancing with Werewolves. Long Live Midnight Louie! As a cat love (I have five) I really enjoy the books with cats in them.

Cat In a Red Hot Rage: A Midnight Louie Mystery

I love the Midnight Louie series and wish she would get them out more often! Of course, I am a "cat lover" and I just love Louie's personality - a little bit arrogant!

Noir Midnight Louie

In Las Vegas, Electra Lark volunteers to work security at the Red Hat Sisterhood convention. However, someone proves to have too much zest when an under fifty Red Hat apprentice Pink Lady Oleta Lark is strangled with a purple scarf. The police suspect Electra killed her as witnesses claim she helped the victim set her scarf just right and the women were ex-wives of Elmore Lark. Electra begs her tenant public relations specialist and renowned amateur sleuth extraordinaire Temple Barr to prove her innocence. With Temple's feline owner Midnight Louie and his Midnight, Inc partner Midnight Louise leading the way, the trio investigates the Red Hat Sisterhood to determine who killed the Pink Lady. The latest Midnight Louie whodunit is a terrific tale of the fur as, the two cat sleuths work the murder investigation and keep Temple safe. The story line is fast-paced and amusing as the heroes aided by an assortment of cats and people seek to prove Electra's innocence by uncovering the identity of the killer among a horde of aggressive middle age red hatted females and felines. However, as always in Carole Nelson Douglas' cat capers that feline Noir Midnight Louie owns the story. Harriet Klausner

Picking up Midnight Louie's "third season"

Oh, dear, one must not snerk. This is the nineteenth book in a series. The author has described the set of books as episodes in a three-season drama. The prior book, Cat in a Quicksilver Caper, was the culmination of "season two," so some very dramatic events occurred involving the major ongoing characters (Temple Barr, Matt Devine, Max Kinsella, and Midnight Louie the feline detective). This one sets up the situation for "season three," so it has fewer dramatic developments and astonishing turnabouts, but provides a lot of teasers for the future, as well as giving the landlady of Temple and Matt (and, once upon a time, Max), Ms. Electra Lark, a book of her own. Electra is of an age to be fully eligible for the over-fifty Red Hat Society. Temple is back at work at her old venue, the "classy" Crystal Phoenix owned by Nicky Fontana and his wife Van von Rhine, doing PR work for them in the midst of a Red Hat Society convention held at the hotel (and jointly at the Goliath, from which the Mystifying Max vanished so long before). The Fontana brothers are out in force. I take notes on this series of books, trying to spot the planted clues about future developments. So far, I have several pages of notes on Cat in a Red Hot Rage. Moreover, if you like puns, the one involving Max and the Scarlet Pimpernel is worth the price of the book all by itself.
