Publisher's Summary

Kathleen Paulson is snowed under running her library and caring for her extraordinary felines, Owen and Hercules. But when a fund-raiser turns deadly, she’ll have to add sleuthing to her already full schedule.

Winter in Mayville Heights is busy and not just because of the holidays. Kathleen is hard at work organizing a benefit to raise money for the library’s popular Reading Buddies program. She has her hands full hosting the event. And when a guest at the gala drops dead, her magical cats, Owen and Hercules, will have their paws full helping her solve a murder.

The victim is the ex of town rascal Burtis Chapman, but she hasn’t lived in the area in years. And though everybody is denying knowledge of why she was back in town, as Kathleen and her detective boyfriend, Marcus, begin nosing around, they discover more people are connected to the deceased than claimed to be. Now Marcus, Kathleen, and her uncanny cats have to unravel this midwinter tale before the case gets cold.

It keeps getting better

Kathleen and friends are back in another great book. Owen and Hercules are also great and add to the fun. There is a lot of character development and the plot was fast paced. I look forward to the next book.

Loved it

This was the best book so far.
It wrapped up a lot of the stories loose ends.

NO

Unbearably inane. Cozy and neighborly friendship dialogue is good but that aspect of this book has the substance and maturity of airhead adolescents. I LIKE cozies, don't expect them to compare to tight plotting and dialogue of Michael Connolly or Peter Grainger so I kept listening to give it a chance but after 6 chapters I just couldn't take it anymore.

Good ending

A cute, cozy little mystery, that started out a three star and ended up a four because I liked the characters more and more as the book went along. Looking forward to more.

Bland, Overly Sweet and Trite

Main character is dull, boring and overly virtuous and rather subservient. Serving cold milk to boyfriend to go with stew for dinner??? What is that about? Is she a former alcoholic ? Very strange. Cats were ok but why bother with them being magical in a story that clearly was anything but. The murder mystery itself was not spectacular either.
