A day in the life of Katherine Harper by Paige Sleuth

My day took quite a turn not long after I moved back to my childhood hometown of Cherry Hills, Washington. It started off innocently enough. I woke up, ate, showered, and dressed. Then I stepped out of my apartment to find my neighbor’s cat Matty sitting in the common hallway.

This might not seem so unusual, but you have to understand that Matty was like a child to Mrs. Tinsdale. And as with any child, you don’t let her wander off on her own.

So, what could I do? I had no choice but to investigate.

My day only went downhill from there. First, I discovered that Mrs. Tinsdale was dead. And not just any dead, but murdered. Then I ran into several people who could have killed her. On top of all that, I had to adopt Matty since the poor thing was now homeless. Okay, that part wasn’t so bad—until I had to take Matty to the vet. Boy, did she put up a fight. But I won’t get into that now because a murderer is still on the loose, and I won’t be able to rest until I know he or she is behind bars.

So, yeah, overall my return to Cherry Hills hasn’t been off to a great start. But I did get to reconnect with my old friend Andrew Milhone. He’s a police detective now, and he looks pretty darn good. I just keep reminding myself that I’ve only been back a few weeks. I’ll give it some more time and see what happens.

Little did I know this was just the start of my involvement in some very serious crimes.
