Things start to get interesting when Monk tries to help their neighbor Polo whose mistress a formerly well-known opera singer pining for lost husband has her valuable diamond necklace stolen.
Can Inca and her family assist Monk and Terrance to recover the diamond necklace and resolve Polo’s problems?
What about the new cheese shop, will it be a success? Despite Fromage’s confident attitude, will it rest on Inca’s shoulders to ensure its success?
Bio – R.F. Kristy (Author of the Inca Cat Series)
The intelligence and allure of cats has always enchanted me. Writing the Inca Cat Series arose out of the blue. I had never dreamed of writing stories for children. My specialty, due to my work with the United Nations concentrated on reports of a technical nature. A world much removed from the milieu of children’s books. I never read romantic novels, science fiction nor fantasy stories. Detective stories on the other hand have me hooked. I am rather nostalgic and like a more ordered world. From watching and interacting with both my cats, Inca and Cara, the Inca Cat Series was born. Loving a good mystery, when I started writing about the cat adventures, the ideas started flowing. The idea for the Inca Cat Series came to me, rather from living and observation- and the details in a strange way, from reading rather than from living or observation. The “Christmas Cats” followed and the third “Cats in Provence” is currently bubbling. I don't think we choose our genre, I think that a genre chooses us or should I say, Inca and Cara made the choice inevitable.
