“An Alice Nestleton Mystery” Series
By Lydia Adamson
Alice is a struggling New York stage actress and intrepid cat sitter with a nose for murder. All of Alice’s mysteries somehow center on the involvement of a cat…and it takes a true cat person to catch the connection. The Alice Nestleton mysteries are quirky and fun, and sometimes even border on the mystical. Lydia Adamson, who also pens a mystery series starring veterinarian Dr. Nightingale, knows her animals!
