Spotlight/Giveaway: A Picture-Purrfect Christmas by Patricia Fry

About the Book

Genre: Cozy Mystery, #13 in A Klepto Cat Mystery Series
Publisher: Matilija Press
Release Date: October 2015

Synopsis from Goodreads...

A spellbinding story of love, hope, and a child’s innocent Christmas dreams. When Savannah Ivey agrees to teach photography to a group of at-risk children, she doesn’t expect a sweet-spirited little crippled girl to steal her heart and become an important part of her family. Even Rags, the kleptomaniac cat, is captivated by the child named Marissa. When she goes missing, everyone, including Rags, experiences the pain of loss.

Detective Craig Sledge fears that Marissa’s unscrupulous, non-custodial father may be behind her disappearance and the search escalates into high gear. When even a pack of rescue dogs can’t find the child, the detective turns to Rags and everyone prays for a Christmas miracle. Can Rags succeed where the others have failed?

While this story involves some intense drama, it will also make you smile and even laugh out loud. Bring out the tissues for the beautiful ending. A Picture-Purrfect Christmas is one of those feel-good holiday stories you’ll want to read over and over again.

  13. Question for Patricia Fry: When you start a new book, do you have all the characters in place and an ending planned, or does it come to you as you write?

    1. Hi Peggy, it depends. Each of the (so far) 13 books in the series have emerged rather uniquely. But for the most part, the story develops as I write as do the characters. Of course, we have core characters who appear in all of the stories and others who pop in and out. But yes,you could say that typically, the characters develop as I write. As for the ending--sometimes that's evident and other times I struggle to create a suitable ending. I hope you are enjoying the stories.
