Magical Cats: Book 8
From the back of the book, “Kathleen is happy to meet three old pals of beau, Detective Marcus Gordan, while they visit charming Mayville Heights on business. But the reunion is cuts short when one of the friends is killed – and the evidence points toward Marcus as the murderer.
“Though it seems she doesn’t know all of Marcus’s secrets, Kathleen is sure he’s no killer. With his suspect status sidelining him from investigating the case, it’s up to Kathleen and her feline partners in crime to find whoever is framing Marcus—and make sure the good detective hasn’t found his last clue….”
Once again, I didn’t figure out who the perp was! I’m going to try to stop guessing. The real surprise, however, was the person who was taken out was not the one it usually is. In a typical cozy I’ve noticed that the most obnoxious person at the beginning of the story is the one who gets offed; but in this case, a very sympathetic person gets the boot. Which means the obnoxious one hangs around for the whole book – very annoying! But it makes for good reading and a fun mystery to solve. Of course, you know Marcus didn’t do it! He’s a main character and I’ve never read a cozy where a main character bites the dust! I enjoyed this book a lot and found no errors! Yay!!
