Sleight of Paw
A Magical Cats Mystery
by Sofie Kelly
The crazy cat lady is back again! You probably know a crazy cat lady – one of those women who live alone with only cats for companionship. Oh, and they talk to their cats, too. Kathleen Paulson, does, too, and is back as the librarian who seems to get wrapped up in murder in the small town of Mayville, Minnesota. In a small town everyone seems to know everyone else’s business. Secrets galore. Everyone, but Kathleen, that is. She’s been in town for a year now and there are people she still doesn’t know and motives she isn’t aware of.
It’s winter in Mayville and the towns folk are getting ready for Winterfest. Food, fun, and winter games. Everyone attends. Everyone, but Agatha Shepherd. Unfortunately for Agatha, she’s found dead in an alley behind Kathleen’s favorite restaurant. Was she run down by accident or was she murdered? No one can figure out why. She was a much loved high school teacher and principal at the local school. She helped quite a few students turn their lives around. Who would want to do her in? Kathleen is determined to find out. She just needs to do it without getting in the way of the town’s handsome and single police officer, Marcus Gordon.
Kathleen’s magical cats, Hercules and Owen, bring her tidbits of things that may be clues. And yes, she does talk to them, and actually believes they understand her. Can she solve the mystery before she ends up dead next? Find out for yourself by reading this fun cozy mystery. I enjoyed it, even if Kathleen talks to her cats and bakes them sardine cat treats. I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars. I gave the first novel in the set 3 of 5 stars.
