Last month Kate was a Police Detective. 
Now she’s a Pet P.I.?
Kate Garrett recently inherited half her father’s private investigation company and a partner who is as irritating as he is attractive. Kate has been avoiding Jake Carmedy for years, but now her life might depend on him.

Kate and Jake are on the hunt for a serial cat killer who has mysterious connections to her father’s last police case. Kate’s father had been forced to retire when he was shot investigating a domestic disturbance. Is the shooter back for revenge? And is Kate or Jake next?

Meet Kate Garrett

Private investigator or police detective? 
Either way, she's a daughter first. 
 An old-style memory card slid out of the envelope with a neatly bound file folder. I felt a shiver of anticipation ripple down my neck, making my shoulders twitch. The card was the kind my father used in his audio recorder. In addition to official recordings and reports, he found it useful to keep a more conversational record of his thoughts on a case.
I set aside the plastic-cased card for later. Instead, I thumbed through the report copies and yellowed newspaper clippings, trying to get a sense of what the case was about and why my father would keep the file. 
One headline on one tear sheet answered my questions—Local detective shot defending domestic abuse victim.
This was my father’s last case as a police officer.
