Meet secondhand shop owner Sarah Grayson and her rescue cat, Elvis, in the first novel in the New York Times bestselling Second Chance Cat Mystery series...

Sarah Grayson is the happy proprietor of Second Chance, a charming shop in the oceanfront town of North Harbor, Maine. At the shop, she sells used items that she has lovingly refurbished and repurposed. But her favorite pet project so far has been adopting a stray cat she names Elvis.

Elvis has seen nine lives—and then some. The big black cat with a scar across his nose turned up at a local bar when the band was playing the King of Rock and Roll’s music and hopped in Sarah’s truck. Since then, he’s been her constant companion and the furry favorite of everyone who comes into the store.

But when Sarah’s elderly friend Maddie is found with the body of a dead man in her garden, the kindly old lady becomes the prime suspect in the murder. Even Sarah’s old high school flame, investigator Nick Elliot, seems convinced that Maddie was up to no good. So it’s up to Sarah and Elvis to clear her friend’s name and make sure the real murderer doesn’t get a second chance.
Sofie Ryan is a New York Times bestselling author and mixed-media artist who loves to repurpose things in her life and her art. She writes the New York Times bestselling Second Chance Cat mysteries and, as Sofie Kelly, writes the New York Times bestselling Magical Cats mysteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new kitty mystery series This is Sofie’s second cat mystery series, the first being the magical cats, and I am enjoying this book. It took awhile to get in the groove as I had read the other entire series to get used to the new characters, locale, and one kitty, not two. I do like this. My only criticism is the proof reader needs to do a much better job before publishing these books, as I found many grammatical errors. This is distracting to me. Misspelled words, words missing a letter so talking becomes taking but reading you know it’s supposed to be talking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Catuition This is so great. The cat gets it. So often I've watched my pets both cats and dogs figure out people before I can. This book shows that and it's subtle. I loved it. In addition, as usual, it took the human a bit of time to figure out what the cat was telling her. Great fun.
