A Tale of Two Kitties (Signed Book) (Magical Cats Mystery Series #9) by Sofie Kelly

In this charming mystery from the bestselling author of Paws and Effect, two magical cats have powers of detection that prove indispensable to librarian Kathleen Paulson…
 
With a well-placed paw on a keyboard or a pointed stare, Kathleen’s two cats, Hercules and Owen, have helped her to solve cases in the past—so she has learned to trust their instincts. But she will need to rely on them more than ever when a twenty-year-old scandal leads to murder…
 
The arrival of the Janes brothers has the little town of Mayville Heights buzzing. Everyone of a certain age remembers when Victor had an affair with Leo’s wife, who then died in a car accident.
 
Now it seems the brothers are trying to reconcile, until Kathleen finds Leo dead. The police set their sights on Leo’s son and Kathleen’s good friend Simon, who doesn’t have much of an alibi. To prove her friend innocent, Kathleen will have to dig deep into the town's history—and into her sardine cracker supply, because Owen and Hercules don't work for free...

Dollycas’s Thoughts These adorable kitties will steal your heart forever. This intuitive pair, Hercules and Owen, are each magical in their own way and totally devoted to their person, Kathleen. They try to go everywhere she goes and sometimes stow themselves away when she refuses to take them along. The usually go one at a time though, together, away from home, could be a bit of a handful. They understand her both in what she says and what she feels. They do an excellent job at judging other people’s character too. Kathleen has been able to keep their special capabilities to herself so far. They do look like two of my kitties but their magic exceeds anything I have witnessed here at home. I absolutely love them and they would be welcome at my house any time. The mystery this involves two brothers who have been estranged for years. They previously lived in Mayville Heights and had returned to try to get beyond their differences. Leo has also come to see his son Simon and his granddaughter. Victor is having health issues and fears his days are numbered. Before ant reconcilation can happen Kathleen finds Leo’s body and gets very upset when Marcus hones in on Simon as the prime suspect. Kathleen feels answers may be found by digging into the past to find what drove the brothers apart. She has heard rumors but with a little feline assistance she is determined to get Simon off the wanted list and the real culprit behind bars. Being back in Mayville Heights is like visiting old friends. I imagine I would spend a fair amount of time at the library and may even volunteer. Kathleen and her staff is so welcoming to everyone. Right now the staff is working with a box of old pictures and undelivered mail they have received. Their attention gets diverted when the Leo’s body is found. Mia, his granddaughter works at the library and she has just brought him in to meet her coworkers. I really enjoyed the premise of found items playing a critical part to solving the mystery. This story has a quick pace and the suspense ramps up nicely as the story continues. Kathleen starts to zero in and draw conclusions just in time to land herself in a bunch of trouble. The clues all came together for me at the same time as Kathleen. A fun well written mystery with characters that continue to evolve makes this one of my favorite series. Of course, the two furry felines are my stars in this story. Note – There is a bonus short story at the end of the book and that was a nice surprise. A Purr-fect Escape!!

A Tale of Two Kitties: Magical Cats Series Author: Sofie Kelly Publisher: Berkley Kathleen Paulson’s two cats, Hercules and Owen, are very unusual and indispensable at times. They help her solve murder cases in their own unique way. So it is no surprise that she needs their help whether she asked for it or not to solve the latest murder. Mayville Heights is filled with gossip and curious stares 3when the Janes brothers, Leo and Victor, are both back home after a long time away. Gossip rolls through the small town and Victor Janes is smack in the middle of it, again. Having stolen his brother's wife and destroyed his family, Victor has come home to make amends, or has he? Are the brothers really trying to reconcile or is there something more sinister at the heart of the unexpected homecoming? When Kathleen finds Leo dead, she wonders who other than Victor would want Leo dead. Perhaps he wasn’t the great guy everyone thought he was. Her police boyfriend believes Leo’s son is to blame and sets out to prove it. Kathleen isn’t so sure he is guilty, so she aims to prove he isn't, one way or another. -- The most memorable characters really are the cats, Owen and Hercules. They are highly intelligent and magical cats that can walk through walls, or disappear in the blink of an eye. Kathleen as well as her Detective boyfriend, Marcus is very well written and fun to learn about. The story of Victor and Leo is compelling with just enough of reality that makes you care about them and how their lives have gone. Mia, Simon’s daughter, and Leo’s granddaughter is a well-rounded character that develops into a lovely young woman whose heart is broken by the unexpected and violent death of her beloved grandfather. She puts a brave face on but is still young enough to break down every once in awhile. Mia tugs at the heartstrings of the reader. Her loss and pain are real, and Ms. Kelly has created a character that the reader will want a happy ending for her. The story is well written and flows naturally. There enough hints to the killer's identity that a reader can figure out the who did it, but not too soon in the story. Readers will continue to turn pages and become immersed in the story. It is fast-paced without sacrificing details and entertaining. This book can stand on its own as a solo cozy but fits in well with the entire series. This book will appeal to anyone who enjoys a light-hearted mystery with no sex or actual violence and cats that are very unusual. It is highly recommended.
