Teaser Tuesday #38 - A Curious Affair

A Curious AffairA Curious Affair: The only book I've read by this author and it definitely captured my interest. Melanie Jackson writes in that trickiest of styles - First person, yet manages to draw the reader into a murder that disrupts an idyllic countryside.
"I was unnerved, and not because I was following a talking cat, though I’m betting that’s the part of the story that most bothers you, since I assume you’re sensible and sane."
Only one line for a teaser today - from Chapter 2, Para 1. 

Mini Review:This is a mystery with a borderline supernatural element and I would suggest you pick it up if you are a cat lover. Or an animal lover.
I'm into Melanie's writing style now, and would be happy to find other books by her. If you have any recommendations for more mysteries by her, add that in your comment! 
I'm also interested in hearing about books that transcend the fantasy genre - like Jasper Fforde's novels,  Wicked by G. Maquire, and The Hunger Games.
