Kitten Kaboodle

Kathi Fall Trees [7081640]


Squeee! Kitten Kaboodle launches today! Can you believe that this is Zoe Donovan #20? When I published my first book, Zoe Donovan #1, in September of 2013, I had no idea what a wild ride Zoe and I were destined to take over the next few years. To be honest I really thought that by book 20 readers would begin to tire of the Zak and Zoe story and I would need to look at wrapping things up, but I LOVE this totally awesome couple, and sales for this series are as good as they’ve ever been, so as long as you keep reading them I’ll keep writing them.

I don’t want to give too much away, but this book was a super fun one to write. It features Zak’s honorary grandmother, Harley riding Nona, who is always up for a good time no matter what the situation. I really love writing Nona and am seriously considering having her move to Ashton Falls.

Here is a scene with Nona during the investigation. At this point Nona is the prime suspect in the death of a woman who owned a kitten mill.

I decided I would put a pin in the nagging fear in the back of my mind and focus all my effort on figuring out who else other than Nona had motive to want the woman dead.

She was in the drive warming up her bike when I arrived home. “Going somewhere?”

“Gotta hot date.”

I frowned. “Maybe under the circumstances you should hang out here tonight. Ellie and Levi are coming over. You can join us for dinner.”

“No offense, dearie, but hanging out with a bunch of kids doesn’t in any way compare to spending time with the hot cowboy I intend to lasso.”

“Cowboy? I thought you were dating a gator wrangler.”

“That was days ago. I figured out a long time ago that the spice of life is variety. Now if you don’t mind, I need to be on my way.”

I wanted to argue, but it occurred to me that Nona was fifty years my senior. Why in the heck did I think it was my job to parent her?

“Do you have your phone?”

“In my pocket.”

“And money?”

“In my bra next to my emergency cigar.” Nona leaned over so I could see for myself that she was telling the truth. The woman certainly knew how to work her assets.

“Okay.” I gave in. “I guess you’ll be fine, but please try not to be late. I worry about you.”

“Oh, I’m gonna be late.” Nona laughed as she climbed onto her Harley and sped away in a cloud of dust.

    I’m 81 and now I wish I’d acted a little bit more like Nona when I a little younger. I did try a motorcycle once and they heard me screaming for blocks. I want off.

    Just love the series and so glad that it is 20 and still going strong. Most of us are all in on this series and will read no matter how many as they are all so diff and new characters are always introduced and then the family is the same . I recommend the series all the time as you might see . Keep writing is what i am trying to say and we will keep reading!

    Nona is at the top of my list of real ‘characters’ now! And kittens are my favorite critters. Thanks Kathi.

    I started reading the book last night. Loving it! b I think you may be correct in your thought that this is the best book in the series to date. When reading the first chapter I immediately thought of the April Fool’s true or false.

    Thanks for the giveaway. Can’t wait to get the book and read it, it sounds great. Also, as far as I am concerned, you can just keep writing.

  12. Joyce C Moser says:

    Hooray for Nona! What a character!! I simply LOVE all the Zak and Zoe books–they are my fave!!!!
