My book is Shades of Grey by Clea Simon.

This synopsis is from Clea's website:

Are our pets every really gone?

That's just one of the questions plaguing Dulcie Schwartz. A grad student at Harvard, Dulcie lives for research. Her discipline — the Gothic English novel of the late 18th Century — may seem minor to some. But for Dulcie, it's reason to dive into the library, into the ordered, reasoned world of books. At least, until her roommate is murdered, her mother starts calling with some strange psychic dreams. And the ghost of her late, great cat Mr. Grey appears to help her through it all ... or over the edge.

Check is out at Amazon.


  1. Sounds like it could be fun or scary.

  2. This book sounds very good. Great choice for an "S" book!

  3. Sounds like a good little mystery.

  4. Welcome, glad to have you here.
    This book sounds interesting.
    I should hope to think my cat's spirit will always be in my heart.
    MERRY Christmas

  5. Sounds like a good read.

    I agree with Joyful, our lives are forever touched by our beloved pets.

  6. Thanks Yvonne for choosing "Shades of Grey"! I prommise you, it's more cozy than scary - though I hope there will be some chills involved especially in one scene right by the end...

    If you're undecided, you can check out an excerpt on my home page, at - and Dulcie and Mr. Grey will return in March in "Grey Matters." (PS - "Shades of Grey" is now only a hardcover - request it at your library! - but it will be out in paperback in either May or June).

    THanks so much for including me - and happy holidays!

  7. This sounds like a very interesting read. Here is my "S" book.

  8. I've got Clea Simon on my wish list! The whole series sounds great.

    Here's my "S"

  9. Wow - another new author for me and I am excited to see that it is a series. It's great when you fall in love with a character and they appear in more books!

  10. How wonderful of you to join us, and bring along the author. I love cats, and I enjoy a Ghostly visit as much as the next. I shall be asking at my local library.

  11. Clea has another kitty series out, which I've read, and they are wonderful. So, I expect nothing less than that with this one :) Of course I'm not sure when I'll get to read it, but it will be soon. Probably after the holidays.

  12. This sounds like something I would really like! Thanks for the heads-up.
    If you want to have a look, here's my S book.
