Actress Alice Nestleton is on a bus when a woman seemingly randomly shoots several passengers. Then she's asked by a branch of the New York Police Department, with whom she's worked before, to link this horrible shooting to what might have been an aborted shooting on a bus that occurred years earlier. There's a lot of turmoil in Alice's life, too, with a new job, a new beau, and success finally on the horizon.

A Cat on the Bus was given to me by a friend for a light, quick something to read during a busy week.

I enjoy the series just because I like cats and mysteries. These aren't the best mysteries ever but they entertain. And since I just realized I've read it before and wasn't crazy about it I guess that proves my point.
Sort of like Cheezits.
