-Fresh Fiction

Synopsis

Everyone thinks their cats are special—but Owen and Hercules have powers that go far beyond an adorable look or an irresistible purr. Along with their owner, librarian Kathleen Paulson, they have an uncanny instinct for solving crimes...

It's been raining cats and dogs in Mayville Heights. The small town's been deluged, and now the local artists' co-op is on the verge of flooding. Kathleen has been up all night helping her friends move their creations to the safety of the upstairs studio.

The artwork survives, but when controversial mask maker Jaeger Merrill is found drowned in the co-op basement, Kathleen questions whether the death was accidental. After she discovers the artist was using an assumed name, she realizes she can't actually assume anything about him. With the help of handsome detective Marcus Gordon—and her cats' extraordinary powers of detection—it's up to Kathleen to unmask a killer.

The characters remain true to life, and their relationships continue to grow. New characters are introduced, but regulars from the first two books are sprinkled liberally through the story. Cats with magic powers, a library, good friends who look out for each other and small town coziness come together in perfect unison.

The Season

Below average
Reviewed by Kat

the story features not one, but two distinct mysteries (one past and one present); unfortunately, though, both mysteries are simultaneously too far-fetched and too predictable to be 100% satisfying. I finished the book wishing she’d given me more – more suspects, more red herrings, more twists – and that’s ultimately that's what caused me to downgrade this book

Copycat Killing is the third book in the Magical Cats Mystery series and by far the most complex one to date. I enjoyed it immensely and strongly suggest that you add it to your book ordering lists.
