Book Beginning: A Tale of Two Kitties by Sofie Kelly

A Tale of Two Kitties (A Magical Cats Mystery #9)
A tale of two kitties by Sofie Kelly
Publication: September 5, 2017, Berkley
Genre: cozy mystery

Two magical cats have powers of detection that prove indispensable to librarian and amateur sleuth Kathleen Paulson…

Book beginning:
You'd think by now it wouldn't bother me to step on a body in the middle of the kitchen floor, but I was in my sock feet and the body - missing its head, no surprise - was damp.

With cat slobber.

"Owen," I yelled, hopping on one foot while I rubbed the other against my pant leg.

The cat stuck its grey tabby head around the living room doorway and looked at me, face tipped quizzically to one side.

"Come and get this," I said, pointing to the headless yellow catnip chicken, aka Fred the Funky Chicken, I'd just stepped on.  

Page 56:
"You have to stay out of trouble at the library," I reminded him. "No going all Dr. Jack Griffin and roaming the building."

Definitely looks like a cat/mystery lover book!

I remember something like that. My cat liked to leave the feet and tail of a mouse it caught right next to my bed. I'd step on it and scream. LOL

My Friday 56 from Cinema Of Shadows

I had a dog! It didn't do anything close to that, lol.

Ewww....stepping on something like that makes me cringe. But I love the look of the book...

Are the narrators the cats? I couldn't tell from the opening quote. My quotes are from Turtles All the Way Down

The beginning was interesting and kind of misleading at first.

That beginning lured me right in! Happy weekend!

Great book for cat lovers. I'm a dog ��person myself.

Narrator is the cat owner.

The part about magical cats makes anything possible.

Harvee said...

Tho I'm sceptical sometimes about anything magical, I'll read this one!

I've been wanting to read this series! I'm always a little skeptical about cozies with cats who are anything but ordinary cats but I've heard good things about this one.

Harvee said...

Must be popular. It's the ninth book in the series~
