Publisher's Summary

Kathleen Paulson enjoys her life as a small-town librarian with two extraordinary cats, Owen and Hercules, who provide companionship during the quiet times and have a remarkable talent for sleuthing when murder disturbs the peace....

The local businesses of Mayville Heights hope to convince Chicago-based company Legacy Tours to sell a vacation package for their town. Legacy Tours partner Mike Glazer grew up in Mayville Heights, but he’s no longer the small-town boy people once knew. Even the local bootlegger has an issue with the bossy loudmouth Mike has become - until someone shuts him up for good.

When Kathleen discovers Mike’s body on the boardwalk, she can’t help but get involved in the investigation - even if her beau, Detective Marcus Gordon, would rather she didn’t. Now, with a little help from Owen and Hercules, it’s up to Kathleen to make sure the killer is booked for an extended stay in prison before someone else takes a permanent vacation.

Going soft in my old age

What did you love best about Cat Trick?

After spending my younger years with the heavy duty mysteries, I enjoyed the animal and lady snoops. It was just relaxing, no hold your breath or stop reading to collect your thoughts or wonder why or how someone could be so morbid. Just good old fashion who done it story. I love that the cats turn out to be magical, nice touch..

A delightful listen.

A throughly satisfying slow burn plot, with carecters that grow in depth with each read.

Another good read by Sofie Kelly

I do have to say that the formula is getting to be more predictable in each successive tail. I really like the narration, and of course I love to hear of Kathleen‘s antics with Owen and Hercules. Being a cat lover, how could I possibly resist?

This is my favorite book yet! Great interaction!

Owen and Hercules help Kathleen solve yet another murder with their intelligence and sly sleuthing. Kathleen herself is quite a good investigator, always seemingly a step behind Marcus Gordon. I love how those two interact, trying so hard not to show their intense attraction. Another great one for the online bookshelf!

Review. Murderer revealed too early

This is a hard story to rate, and maybe three stars might be a little low. The romantic tension between go-with-your-feelings Kathleen and go-by-the-book Marcus seemed genuine, and the plot seemed realistic. However, with a mystery, my ratings depend a lot on if I could figure out who did it? And I figured it out halfway through the book. Nevertheless, still a good week. I just hope the author hides the murderer better in the future.
