Meow Mayhem  and Meow Matrimony - also available in paperback

Review for Meow Mayhem:
24 March 2019

Quirky characters, subtle humour, mystery and romance, enjoyable and fun—what more can I say?
As with all Lisa Lickel’s works this mystery is well crafted—she has written a book that’s entertaining, a page turner and a heart-warming story. I love the well developed characters, especially the cats.
Read and enjoy.
Meow Mayhem is one of several in the ‘Meow’ series, and ideal as a gift book.

Parhelion, book 3 in the Fores of Nature series

A far-sighted group of humans have seen disaster coming and decide to do something about preserving humanity. Hidden for over three generations, members of the program are prepared to leave earth when the time comes. An Air Force test pilot and his fiancé are crucial to success.
If they can stay alive.

If you could choose, what kind of world would you want to live in?

"The story blends sci-fi and romance and picks up where the first two books left off. Lickel does give some backstory to help first time readers of this series understand events that occur prior to this unfolding, but you might want to read those for yourself in order to enjoy this even more." 
T Stewart

"I struggled to put the book down." S Baganz

As my special gift, download and enjoy the Michels Girls Wedding Album.
