Felines and Fatalities: (A Kitty Beret Cafe Mystery #2) by Ruth J. Hartman

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. This book is amazing and I’m glad we get more of Ellie. I love this book. Felines and Fatalities is the second book in A Kitty Beret Café Mystery Series.

Ellie is back. This time she’s not a murder suspect, but the one who finds the body. He was a judge and supposed to be one of the judges for the cat show. Now her shop is once again involved with a murder. What is going on? The quote I chose for Ellie is: “Yeah. The cost. Though it’s an interesting idea, it’s all I can do to run my business and pay for the care of the cats who live here. Not sure I could afford to do a show.”

Highly recommended for Cozy Mystery lovers.

Hairballs and Homicide (A Kitty Beret Café Mystery #1) by Ruth J Hartman

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Hairballs and Homicide is book one in A Kitty Beret Café Mystery Series. Imagine owning a car Café and having someone end up dead after leaving. That is what this book is about. A great read.

Ellie owns a cat Café and runs her business like any normal day. A lady comes in and doesn’t realize that it’s a Cat Café until one comes up to her. Now that lady is dead and Ellie is a suspect because she was the last one to see her alive. The quote I chose for Ellie is: “Yeah, okay. I did see her earlier. Though I hadn’t known her name. Look, if she complained about being in the shop with cats, which by the way, I explained to her was a coffee shop with cats, maybe we could clear this all up right now.”

Highly recommended for Cozy Mystery lovers.

Loved book 1 and book 2 did not disappoint! Ellie is a wonderful character and I adore her quirky ways. Book 2 we see as she hosts a cat show for her rescues and of course no show is complete without a murder a foot! I had my favorite blanket and my thinking cap to try and solve this feline mystery! Ellie and Detective Simon make a great team and the mystery was a great whodunit!

Ellie and Templeton are back and this time, as well as running the Kitty Beret Café and her costume business, Ellie has a new cat come in looking for a home, but it is a sad case as the owner has died and it is one of her regular customers. It turns out that her dying wish was for Ellie to run a cat show for rescued cats, Ellie thinks it’s a great idea, but is not sure how she will find the time or the money to do it. Fortunately for Ellie, the older lady has donated funds so that she can do it and so Ellie goes ahead and finds a venue and people to judge the entries.

On the morning of the cat show, Ellie is ready to get all the café’s residents ready for their show, this part goes smoothly, but that is the only thing which does. As soon as Ellie enters the building, the let parents descend with demand and complains, with some compliments and thanks sprinkled in, so as she is heading to start her list, she goes into a storeroom, unfortunately she isn’t the only one in there, she finds one of the judges murdered and gets locked in with him.

The janitor comes round and finds her thanks to a raging Templeton and let’s her out, calling the police at the same time, so Detective Dare and his partner show up, but declare that the show can go on as long as the storeroom remains out of bounds. This makes everyone a little bit happier, but the demanding pet parents continue to wreak havoc. As the judging continues, Templeton starts doing his usual thing and brings clues to Ellie, but will they find who the culprit is before anyone else gets hurt? This is another cozy mystery full of felines capers and crazy cat people which will keep everyone reading throughout.

Ellie Warren is the owner of Kitty Beret Cafe. As the name suggests, the store has coffee and cats. The book is an easy read full of cats, a mystery, some funny cat moments, and of course an investigation. Fun to have another glimpse into Ellie’s cafe and the characters both human and cat. I think the author adding the new experience for Ellie by having her host a cat show to get people to adopt cats and extra fun!

Ellie Warren, a kitty cafe owner, finds a herself in a bit of trouble when a very cranky customer who seems to detest cats is found murdered in the alley behind the cafe. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this book. It’s definitely got some mystery aspects to it. I thought it was fun the Ellie made outfits for the cats so that they get adopted by people that want a pet cat. The outfits Ellie makes sound so fun and it’s great the cats seem to tolerate them. Ellie sure sounds like a fun person to hang out with. I also like that Ellie seems to have a budding romance with detective Simon, helps that he seems to be a cat lover too.

Ellie and Templeton are at it again! This time at a cat show! One of Ellie’s long time customers passed away and in her will left some money for Ellie to take and put on a cat show specifically for rescue cats. Ellie, not wanting to refuse the dying wishes, decides to take on the request.

Once at the venue, Ellie is in search of some supplies when she comes across a dead body. The body was that of one of the supposed judges of the event. Ellie calls Simon right away and they decide to carry on with the show. The murderer could still be in the building.

Templeton is up to his normal shenanigans and finding items. Ellie remembering that the items he found a few months ago led to the previous murderer, she doesn’t dismiss anything he finds. Ellie’s attention is spread thin as she is hosting the show, Templeton keeps running off, cat people seem to be prissy and full of complaints. What else can go wrong today?

This book was better than the first in the series. Yes it talked about cats a lot but focused on outside things as well making it more mysterious than the first book. I once again fell in love with Ellie and her sleuth cat.

Fun cozy read to curl up to. This is book 2 of the series and this story is totally enjoyable. Ellie Warren, owner of Kitty Beret Cafe, was asked by a past customer to run a rescue cat show. Hesitant at first, Ellie decides to run with it…that is until she has a run in with a deceased cat judge! Who is behind the murder of a cat judge?? Definitely read and find out.

This series is fun to read….cozy murder mystery with a love of cats in costumes! I also just love Templeton… especially my favorite line of “I’m ready to cause mayhem”.

I had not read anything from this author previously, but I am excited to read the rest of this series and her other works. I thought this was a really cute rom-com, murder mystery, with a dash of good humor mixed into it. The main character, Ellie, is in her 20’s, so sometimes I had to remember that some of the things she did, was age appropriate. The author legit had me guessing whodunit right up until the very end. She had red herrings all over the place and they were convincing. I thought it was a very fun and cute book and I look forward to seeing how things pan out between Ellie and the very hot Detective Simon Dare, who seems to have the stamp of approval from her mischievous cat, Templeton.

Ellie is back again and this time she is trying to run a very lengthy cat show for rescue cats. Unfortunately one of the judges, who is an actual judge, turns up dead. Plus side, we get to see more interactions between Ellie and the hot Detective Simon Dare, although the relationship between Detective Dare and her kitty Templeton just continues to get cuter. Again the writer does an amazing job of mixing a murder mystery up into a cute rom-com with such adorable humor. Again, the author does a fantastic job of writing the supporting characters in such a way that I was kept guessing until the very end as to who was the murderer. I am excited to read the third installment in the series!

This book was right up my alley. A strong independent cat lady who owned a cafe that homed and adopted out rescue kitties? On top of that, a cat who also has a knack for finding clues? Yes please!

Ellie is the owner of ‘Kitty Beret Cafe’. Being a cat lover, she opened the cafe in hopes of helping strays and rescues find their furrever homes. One day a woman comes in and starts causing a scene about the cats. The woman detested cats and thought they had no place near food and drink. They were unsanitary and evil. Ellie, of course, tried to defend her cafe and the cats but the woman wouldn’t hear any of it.

A couple hours later, police showed up at the cafe. The woman was found dead behind the cafe. The murder weapon a cat toy. Simon, the cop on the case, instantly has a connection with Templeton (Ellie’s cat) who normally couldn’t be bothered with anyone. Threatening things start happening to Ellie that seem to connect to the murder.

Templeton keeps finding clues around the cafe. Which Ellie presented to the police helping the investigation.

The way the author wrote Templeton was perfect. He reminds me of my grumpy old man cat. Especially when the author humanizes him with certain reactions. He was by far my favorite character.

Kitty love took precedence to the murder which was supposed to be the whole point of the mystery aspect of the book. I did not have an issue with this as I absolutely adore cats but it could be off putting to others.

This is a quick mystery sure to steal your attention from other things you should be doing. I loved that it is a mystery but also stays lighthearted, never getting too dark.

Ellie hosts a rescue cat show instead of the pompous, breed-restricted cat shows that are normally presented. She wants to help her lovely kitties find a home, and thanks to a previous friendly customer she may have a chance to do that while showing them off. Before all the fun starts, Ellie stumbles upon a dead body. Can she help find homes for her rescues while trying to solve this murder or will one cancel the other out?

I never expected to read a book about kittens and murder, but what a wonderful mashup! You’ll be able to sit and soak this up within a day very easily. Pick it up and kick back to see what Ellie and her cats get up to.

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, I was looking forward to this second instalment, and I was definitely not disappointed. I loved being back with Ellie Warren, the owner of the ‘Kitty Beret Café’, and her very clever cat Templeton, who we were introduced to in book one. In this storyline, Ellie hosts a cat show for rescued cats, but the fun turns serious when one of the judges is murdered. Ellie, with the help of Detective Dare, and of course Templeton, has to run the cat show, crown a ‘Best in Rescue Winner’ of the competition, and find the killer! This is a heartwarming cozy mystery which kept me hooked from start to finish, and the plot twists kept me guessing as to the identity of the killer. I felt fully immersed in the storyline, and engaged with Ellie, so much so, that I felt like I was investigating alongside her, once again. I look forward to catching up with Ellie and Templeton again soon.

Felines and Fatalities is Book 2 in the Kitty Beret Café Mystery series. When Ellie, owner of the Kitty Beret Café, agrees to put on a cat show for rescued cats she was not expecting anything more than an adventure involving cats in cute clothes. Things suddenly take a turn when Ellie stumbles onto the corpse of one of the cat show judges in a storeroom on the first day of the cat show. Now Ellie, along with her detective friend, Simon, are involved in a murder mystery that they set out to solve. Of course, no mystery can go unsolved without the aid of Ellie’s beloved rescue cat, Templeton, who is clever enough to help dig up clues of his own. When Templeton starts bringing mysterious items to Ellie, she is baffled by what they mean and who at the cat show these items belong to.

When the news spreads at the cat show about the death of one of the judges some of the reactions from the contestants are not quite what Ellie expected. Some of the contestants are happy about the judge’s death, which of course bumps them up to the top of the suspect list. Is it the sisters who constantly bicker? Is that the secret that one of them is hiding? Is it the begruntled cat mom who terrorizes everyone in her wake? Ellie, Simon, and Templeton are determined to uncover the identity of the murderer in their midst. As they start to uncover clues about each of the cat show contestants, they are stunned by what they discover.

I loved this book and really enjoyed how the author made one of the rescued cats an integral part of the story as he helped to dig up clues of his own. It seemed that Templeton was clever and had a keen sense of who the murderer was before anyone else did. Ellie was sweet and caring but also had her own sleuthing skills that came into action when needed. I loved the subtle love story that started to unfold throughout the book between Ellie and Detective Simon. Templeton played a large part in trying to bring Ellie and Simon together as he played matchmaker between the two of them. Ellie, Simon, and Templeton made a great team as they worked together to solve the murder mystery. A cute and enjoyable read.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As you can probably guess from the title, Felines and Fatalities is a cat-themed cozy mystery. It’s the perfect book for when your cat has decided that your lap is the most comfortable place in the world and you’re forced to sit still for the foreseeable future! It’s the second book in the series, but you can read it as a standalone if you don’t mind a few spoilers for book 1.

Ellie has plenty on her plate running a cat show – so many logistics to worry about and fussy pet parents coming to her with requests and complaints. If you’ve ever been involved in running events you’ll feel a lot of sympathy for her! And of course, one of the judges has the audacity to get himself murdered. But the show must go on…

The star of this series is, of course, Templeton. Ellie looks after many rescue cats but Templeton is hers, the one she will carry around everywhere to keep out of trouble. The detectives doubt Templeton’s ability to contribute to the mystery-solving process, but Templeton would never let a human dictate what he can and can’t do.

This is an entertaining read that will particularly appeal to animal lovers. It’s a five-star read for me, and I’m looking forward to reading the next book, Meows and Mayhem (which I might save for next time I’m cat-sitting…)

If you are looking for a book with mystery, a muder, a dash of romance and a whole lot of kitty cuteness, then this cozy mystery is for you.

Felines and Fatalities by Ruth J. Hartman is about Ellie, the owner of the Kitty Beret Cafe which is a cafe that serves up delicious cafe treats while housing rescue cats. When Ellie is asked to put on a cat show for rescues, she knew it would be a task but had no idea that while hosting the show, she would be helping solve a murder.

I found the book to be a quick, fun read full of quirky characters and adorable cats. It definitely made me want to cuddle my feline buddy a little closer.

So grab a cup of your favorite beverage, a cozy blanket and your furry friend and try to solve the mystery along with Ellie and her kitty Templeton.

Happy Reading!

Felines and Fatalities is the 2nd book in the Kitty Beret Cafe series. It could be enjoyed as a stand alone. There are references to the first book and overlapping characters, however, the author provides enough details you don’t feel like you’re lacking information. This book is full of humor and quirky characters. Ellie is a cat fanatic and her employees are too, with their own crazy quirks. Her grandma is a hoot and her cat Templeton’s behavior is hilarious. While this book is a mystery, surrounding a murder, it is light hearted and not a hair raising suspense. I did enjoy it and was happy for the progression between Ellie and Simon. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Cozy mystery with a cat café? Sign me up!

Ellie Warren is the owner of Kitty Beret Café, a cat café with hopes of getting the kittens adopted.

When an older woman visits the café, sprouting how much she hates cats, Ellie is shocked. She is even more shocked when the same lady is found dead behind the shop. Could the cats have killed her?

It has been a while since I read a cozy mystery. For past few weeks haven’t been the best so being able to lose myself in a novel is a pleasure in life that doesn’t happen as much as it used to.

It has a predictable plot with a romance that I see a mile away. Which adds even more charm to it. It’s a fun read. Dressing up the cats in costumes was a bit annoying. Cute I’m sure, by annoying because of course cats aren’t much of a fan.

I wonder how many novels this will be. I look forward to the next Ellie adventure.

Ellie Warren returns for the second novel of the series.

She is still owner of the Kitty Beret Café where she still dresses up the cats in cute costumes to help them get adopted (I am not sure if that is helping or not).

When she is approached to host a cat show, Ellie is unsure. Because the show is for rescued cats, she agrees. What was suppose to be a fun performance, becomes more deadly when one of the judges is murdered.

With the help of her cat Templeton and Detective Dare, Ellie once again gets swept up in the investigation and wants to find the killer.

What I love about cozy mysteries is that there are so many different directions to go and various paths to setup the plot as well as the murder. I find this one to be very creative.

I enjoy the characters and the setting of a cat cafe (which I really need to go visit one). At Least this gives me a glimpse of what a cat cafe would be like.

I searched online to see if there was another book to look forward to but sadly I didn’t see anything. I really hope so.
