Review of The Black Cat Sees His Shadow
Review (4 Stars): The Black Cat Sees His Shadow was a delightfully entertaining read. Sabrina and her furry sidekick, Hitchcock, are enjoying the annual Pumpkins Day Festival with her friends and neighbors when she runs into a young woman, Tia, that could easily be her twin. Tia and her son are new to Lavender, following different festivals trying to pay the bills but has been having trouble with fellow vendor, Calvin Fisher. When Calvin ends up dead and witnesses put Tia near the scene of the crime, it is up Sabrina to find a killer before it is too late.
This is the third mystery in the Bad Luck Cat series and each story is more charming than the last. I adore Hitchcock and all the sneaky ways he gets himself in trouble as well as Sabrina’s sassy personality. The residents of Lavender, Texas are always a treat and I can’t wait to see what happens next for Sabrina and her furry best friend.
