Is that a really big kitty in Cooley's suburban back yard...or a new way of looking at the world?
Miss Nicola Johansen, otherwise known as Cooley, relies on the predictability of her suburban subdivision to keep her feeling safe. When she spies a black panther slinking along her back fence in the wee hours of the morning, her comfortable life is shaken like a maraca. Repeated calls to the cops result in an investigation, and a finger of blame gets pointed at the mysterious man who lives in 2201 down the street. Like the fact his yard is a disgrace wasn't enough reason to suspect that man of nefarious dealings--the animal pens behind his house are the clincher.
But what happens when Cooley finds out the mysterious man isn't quite the scofflaw she assumed? What happens when she finds out he's absolutely...magnetic?
Book One of the Felidae Series
A fun story with a unique premise. Loved the twist at the end.
Just when they are actually getting to the story it's over
An interesting intro to this new series, Cooley's Panther left me searching for a sequel and wondering "What happens next?" What a fun story! Cooley is a bit of a neighborhood busybody who just "knows" the new guy down the block is hiding something. And that something has to do with the big, black cat that roams past her yard now and again. How is Cooley supposed to find peace in her peaceful neighborhood when there are secrets being kept?
Jody Wallace has written a nifty little story. Her characters, even in such a short piece, come to life on the page.
