Fuzzy Business by Amelia Ritner
In the near future, America is slowly becoming populated with a new minority: men and women who, at their parents’ behest, were genetically altered in the womb to exhibit the appearance of anthropomorphic animals. Miara is a humanimal, a woman just like anyone else, except with feline features and some feline abilities. She accidentally witnesses a murder in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is subsequently kidnapped by the man she sees fleeing the scene. She is then forced to help him find a way to prove his innocence, but he couldn’t possibly be telling the truth… could he? The story includes glimpses of natural animal behavior, an intense gunfight battle on the beach, a crazy mob boss, and multiple references to actual coast side landmarks.

Fuzzy Business 3:End Game by Amelia Ritner
Miara has been through a rough patch in the past few months; kidnapped, assaulted, and then her best friend gunned down mercilessly in her own back yard. But it is time to find the reasoning behind all these horrible happenings; it’s time to find the man behind all the murders and the chaos. She must find the clues and help catch the perpetrator, for the good of all humanimal kind… no matter what the cost.
