About Claw Enforcement
Sarah Grayson and her feline ally, Elvis, are hot on the tail of a crafty killer in the newest installment of the New York Times bestselling Second Chance Cat mysteries.
Sarah Grayson owns a delightful secondhand shop in the small town of North Harbor, Maine, where she and her rescue cat, Elvis, are always finding themselves up to their whiskers in trouble. With the help of a quirky group of senior citizens—who call themselves Charlotte’s Angels and work out of the store—they solve crimes both new and vintage.
Local squabbles about property development have the town in quite a state of drama—and it seems like someone may even be upset enough to kill. When a local man involved in the real estate quagmire falls over dead at a reception to celebrate the harbor front’s redevelopment, Sarah gets roped in to investigate by her own IT expert, Mr. P., who has long known the victim’s stepfather. Between Sarah, Elvis and Charlotte’s Angels, the killer is sure to have claws for concern.
Charlotte’s Angels Coffeecake from Sofie Ryan
In the Second Chance Cat mysteries Sarah Grayson runs a repurpose shop, Second Chance. Her store is also home to Charlotte’s Angels Detective Agency, aka the Angels, which means Sarah gets pulled into whatever case the senior sleuths are working on. No matter what the Angels are investigating, they always seems to run on tea, lots and lots of tea, made in a proper teapot, not with a bag in a cup.
Even though the Angels drink a lot of tea, they eat a lot of coffeecake. This is one of their favorites.
½ cup dark brown sugar 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup plain yogurt (not fat-free)
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup margarine or butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 ½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Grease and flour an 8-inch square pan. Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix cinnamon and brown sugar for topping.
Mix the yogurt and baking soda together and set aside. Cream the margarine, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Whisk the flour and baking powder together and add to the creamed ingredients alternately with yogurt.
Spread half the batter in pan. Sprinkle on half the topping. Cover with the rest of the batter and add the remaining topping.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until top is brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool. Cut into 16 pieces.
The Angels have been known to serve their coffeecake with a little whipped cream or some strawberry sauce.
