This is the 8th story in the Familiar Legacy series and I read this as a stand-alone. It’s the first book I’ve read by this author.
I would classify this as a “cozy mystery” as it features a cat named Trouble who helps solve mysteries. TROUBLE is the thread that connects all of the stories in the series. He’s a special cat and it took me a few chapters to realize it was the cat’s “voice” at the beginning of each chapter. Cute cute cute.
The dialog and banter is sweet and the cat is just a amazing “He’s obviously never wrangled with an intelligent feline before, much less a master detective skilled in all tactical forms” hehehe. Oh, btw, I read the cat with an English accent.
This is a story that moves quickly from beginning to end. It held my attention and while at times it was obvious, other times I was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong.
This is the type of book I would recommend to my mother’s elderly book club.
