Maddie James has arrived in Daybreak Island, just off the coast of Massachusetts, eager to settle down and start her own business--and maybe even fall in love. When a stray orange tabby pounces into her life, she's inspired to open a cat cafe. But little does Maddie know that she's in for something a lot more catastrophic when her new furry companion finds the dead body of the town bully. Now all eyes are on Maddie: Who is this crazy cat-whisperer lady who's come to town? If pet-hair-maintenance and crime-fighting weren't keeping her busy enough, Maddie now has not one but two eligible bachelors who think she's the cat's pajamas ...and will do anything to win her heart. But how can she even think about happily-ever-after while a killer remains on the loose--and on her path?
