Curiosity Thrilled the Cat
Magical Cats: Book 1
From the back of the book: “When Kathleen Paulson leaves her life in Boston and moves to Mayville Heights, Minnesota, she has no idea that two strays will nuzzle their way into her life. Owen is a tabby with a catnip addiction, and Hercules is a stocky tuxedo cat who shares Kathleen’s fondness for Barry Manilow. But beyond all the furs and purrs, there seems to be something more to these felines.
“When murder interrupts Mayville’s Wild Rose Summer Music Festival, Kathleen finds herself the prime suspect. More stunning is her realization that Owen and Hercules are truly special—perhaps even magical. Suddenly she’s relying on their skills to solve this crime and save her reputation. With a little legwork from her four-legged friends, Kathleen may be able to solve this purr-fect murder….”
I love reading books that have both cats and libraries in them!! Its so much like home! In this new-to-LoC cozy mystery series, Kathleen is a librarian who not only adopts two semi-feral cats but helps the local veterinarian take care of a feral cat colony! The two cats, Owen and Hercules, do have magical powers – Hercules can walk through solid doors and Owen can make himself invisible! Both of these talents help their human solve mysteries and keep her from getting killed by the murderers she uncovers.
This book does a good job of laying the foundation for what should be a good series of mysteries for me to read. I enjoyed it and if I had been paying close attention I might’ve had a better idea of who the murderer was, but I wasn’t and I didn’t so I was quite surprise when it turned out to be — – ha! You thought I’d tell you who! I’m not offering any spoilers because I want you to enjoy this little cozy.
Rating 4 out of 5 paws for surprising me with who the murderer was – someone I didn’t even suspect at all!
