Blog Tour & Review: A Tale of Two Kitties by Sofie Kelly

Posted by Jennifer in 4 Stars, Blog Tour, Book Spotlight, Cozy Mystery, Review / 1 Comment

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…

Review of A Tale of Two Kitties

Review (4.5 Stars): This is the ninth book in the Magical Cats Mystery series and I absolutely adore Kathleen and her furry crime-fighting partners.  In this story, Kathleen and her friends are welcoming Mia’s twin grandfathers to their lovely community.  Mia’s family has a few secrets of their own and this is the one opportunity for the feuding grandfathers to finally make amends for the past.  When one of them is found dead, it is up to Kathleen to find another killer and help Mia’s father who is the prime suspect for this horrendous crime before it is too late.

A Tale of Two Kitties is a charming mystery series that will leave readers spellbound with its delightful characters and well-written storyline.  Even though this is the ninth installment of the series, it is very easy to follow along with the characters if you haven’t read the rest of the series.  I loved spending time with Kathleen, Owen and Hercules during the course of this mystery and I can’t wait to see what trouble they find themselves in for the next book.
