Description Miranda and the D-Day Caper by Shelly Frome
On a sparkling spring morning in the Blue Ridge, small-town realtor Miranda Davis approached the tailgate market, intent on dealing with her whimsical cousin Skip’s unexpected arrival from New York. It turns out that Skip was on the run and, in his panic, grabbed his beloved tabby Duffy, recalling that Miranda had a recent part in solving a case down in Carolina. His predicament stemmed from intercepting code messages like “Countdown to D-Day,” playfully broadcasting the messages on his radio show over the nation-wide network, and subsequently forced to flee.
At first, Miranda tried to limit her old childhood companion’s conundrum to the sudden abduction of Duffy the cat. But the forces that be were hell-bent on keeping Skip under wraps by any means after he now stumbled close to the site of their master plan. Miranda’s subsequent efforts to decipher the conspiracy and somehow intervene placed both herself and her old playmate on a collision course with a white-nationalist perpetrator and the continuing machinations of the right-wing enterprise, with the lives of all those gathered for a diversity celebration in nearby Asheville and a crucial senatorial vote on homeland security hanging in the balance.
You met Miranda Davis in Shelly Frome's 'Moon Games' now she has a new mystery to solve!

My Take: This is the second book in this series but you can easily read it as a stand a lone. Miranda is a real estate agent in the Blue Ridge Mountains and she solved a mystery in the previous book so her cousin Skip has shown up wanting her help as he has had his cat has been catnapped
because of some claims Skip made on a late night radio show that he was doing for a friend. Miranda agrees to help get Skip's cat back but the deeper she gets into the case the more she finds out that all the claims are not just made up. This was a wild ride and kept me guessing from start to finish. I would recommend this book if you are life me and like your mysteries a bit on the cozy side.
