It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I just started reading this one.  The excerpts are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter

"It's too hot!  I can't breathe," Ophelia yowled.  She lifted soft black paws to claw with desperation at the cardboard prison that trapped them.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Had someone come into the garage from the street?

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Two magical tarot cats and their tenderhearted human outwit a cruel criminal in South Florida

Most days, Ruby Sparks feels like the sign that says Tarot Card Reader Extraordinaire should say Tarot Card Reader Barely Competent. But as challenging as it is to take care of her half-sister's new age shop—and her growing menagerie of mystically inclined pets—Ruby never worries that she's bitten off more than she can chew . . . until a customer wants her to divine the truth about a murder.

When her own life is threatened with a double dose of danger, Ruby begins to wonder if she's being played for a fool. Luckily, she has Aphelia and Brandon—sibling black cats with a talent for tarot—and a feisty pitbull friend who all lend a paw in collaring the culprit before Ruby finds herself taking her final cat nap.

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?
