Cat detectives. Quirky heroines. Nefarious small towns with dark secrets. Dana LaCoco and Sunshine LeMontree take a deep dive into the world of cozy cat mysteries to explore the tangled plots and eccentric characters of the genre’s biggest hits.
Episode 17: Revenge at its Felinest
Purrder, She Wrote returns! To kick off Season 2, Sunshine and Dana return to where it all began with the 30th (!) installment in Patricia Fry's Klepto Cat series. This episode is packed with ancient curses, rednecks, and a nearly lethal dose of mansplaining! Yikes!
Episode 16: Curiosity Killed the Cat
Cats getting drunk. Wizard mafia. Cozy conspiracy bunkers. And one super chill, unflappable heroine. In Episode 16, Dana and Sunshine discover they have no talent for accents, but a lot to say about this cozy mystery by T.H. Hunter.
Episode 15: Office Cat Libs
In this mini episode, we make our colleagues fill out some Cat Libs. Turns out we have some cozy mystery writers in our midst!
Episode 14: Curiosity Thrilled the Cat
In this episode, Dana and Sunshine finally find the strong female murderer they've been looking for. We talk girl gangs, magic cats, weaponized cinnamon rolls and unfortunate references to Matt Lauer in this wild read.
Episode 13: Kitten-sized mini episode!
We've been busy (sadly with non-cozy cat related things), but we wanted to share a kitten-sized episode. Tune in for the tale of our first cozy failure, life updates and help us pick our next read!
Episode 12: Murder Past Due
We're back in cozy territory with Murder Past Due, a book about paternity scandals, inheritance fraud, and bringing your cat to a funeral. Despite a promising premise, Sunshine and Dana were underwhelmed by this college town cozy.
Hilarious podcast. Had no idea these books existed. Well worth listening.
