Magical Cats: Book 7
From the back of the book, “Normally, the arrival of an art exhibition at the Mayville Heights library would be cause for celebration. But thanks to the overbearing curator and the high-tech security system that comes with the show, Kathleen’s life has been completely disrupted. Even Owen and Hercules have been affected, since their favorite human doesn’t seem to have a spare moment to make their favorite fish crackers or listen to Barry Manilow.
“But when Kathleen stops by the library late one night and finds the curator sprawled on the floor—and the exhibition’s most valuable sketch missing—it’s suddenly time to canvass a crime scene. Now Kathleen, her detective boyfriend, Marcus, and her clever cats have to sniff out a murderous thief before anyone else has a brush with death….”
I feel like I’m repeating myself when I say I like this book a lot. And, maybe I am, since I’ve read 7 of them in a row and have two more before I’m all caught up! I just hope you’re not bored by reading the reviews. What can I say that hasn’t already been said about this mystery series? Oh – I know! There were no spelling errors we could find (not that there weren’t any, we just didn’t see any) which is outstanding – especially after Book 6 (see previous Magical Cats review).
In this book, the murderer is somewhat of a surprise. After the perpetrator was revealed, I thought back over the story and realized the clues were there, I just didn’t see them. I guess I was too caught up in Owen and Hercules to pay attention. Also, before this book, the magical cats worked their clue finding abilities in the presence of only Kathleen, but in this one, they find clues right in front of Marcus, so maybe in the next book (or the next) Kathleen will come clean to Marcus about all of their magical talents!
Rating: 4 out of 5 paws for a pair of handsome cats, especially Hercules, who’s a tuxie like me!!
