Ginger is not a happy cat.
He’s fat, he’s ugly, and he’s getting old.

And when he meets poor little woebegone Sparky – the cutest cat in the universe – he sees his chance. “Nobody gives me nuffink!” has been his complaint, but Sparky is “luck on a stick” and Ginger does everything possible (including catching his mice) to gain his trust.
Sparky however is hopelessly attached to his litter tray. He does not want to go to Barcelona. He is happy right where he is, surrounded by eccentric Indian neighbours, scary Australian vets, dogs with no mouthwash, and amorous local tom-cats.

Personal Note from the Author:
I started this mystery series when my job required traveling around New Mexico. Mysteries and quirky characters floated to the surface. In Dulce, New Mexico, I felt the presence of spirits, hidden in the hills, on every visit. Truly, I was disturbed. My own mother died when I was 13, and I spend most of my life chasing her, so, in this cozy mystery series, I created the woman sleuth, Cinnamon, who chases her momma while she solves crime stories in picturesque locations in the Land of Enchantment.
