My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kathleen Paulson took on the job of head librarian in Mayville Heights, Minnisota. While out walking, exploring the area around her rented house, she met two cats who followed her home. Within a short time, Kathleen learned neither cat was your everyday normal variety of feline. Owen disappeared when he wanted to be sneaky and Hercules passed through solid doors when he didn’t want to stay home. Then Kathleen found a body on stage at the Stratton. By the end of the day everyone in Mayville seemed to be on the suspect list with Kathleen in the number one position.
Overall the book is a good read. It held my attention from the beginning, but that isn’t unusual. Very few material clues scattered throughout the story and clues picked up while listening to the women talk keeps the reader guessing until the end who the killer is. Description of the town was either minimal or well hidden amongst all the calm action because once I had finished the book, I seemed to have had a good image of the whole town in my mind. I liked what I saw in that image. Not much romance entered into the happenings, but since Curiosity Thrilled the Cat is Book 1 a series, perhaps romance will develop and grow solid between the detective and Kathleen. Reach for the second book in the Magical Cats Mystery Series: SLEIGHT OF PAW. Check it out here: http://sofiekelly.com
