Description

In the third Magical Cats mystery, small town librarian Kathleen Paulson and her very special cats must go on the hunt to find a clever killer... It's been raining cats and dogs in Mayville Heights. The small town's been deluged, and now the local artists' co-op is on the verge of flooding. Kathleen has been up all night helping her friends move their creations to the safety of the upstairs studio. The artwork survives, but when controversial mask maker Jaeger Merrill is found drowned in the co-op basement, Kathleen questions whether the death was accidental. After she discovers the artist was using an assumed name, she realizes she can't actually assume anything about him. With the help of handsome detective Marcus Gordon--and Owen and Hercules's extraordinary powers of feline detection--it's up to Kathleen to unmask a killer.

Copycat Killing By Sofie Kelly Copyright May 2012 Publisher: Obsidian Mystery Everyone thinks their cats are special-but Owen and Hercules have powers that go far beyond an adorable look or an irresistible purr. Along with their owner, librarian Kathleen Paulson, they have an uncanny instinct for solving crimes... It's been raining cats and dogs in Mayville Heights. The small town's been deluged, and now the local artists' co-op is on the verge of flooding. Kathleen has been up all night helping her friends move their creations to the safety of the upstairs studio. The artwork survives, but when controversial mask maker Jaeger Merrill is found drowned in the co-op basement, Kathleen questions whether the death was accidental. After she discovers the artist was using an assumed name, she realizes she can't actually assume anything about him. With the help of handsome detective Marcus Gordon-and her cats' extraordinary powers of detection-it's up to Kathleen to unmask a killer. It's been raining cats and dogs in Mayville Heights and the town just might float away if it doesn't stop. Everyone is on edge, and if they have businesses on the main strip they are shoring up the place and pumping out water as fast as they can. Kathleen is home with her two cats Owen and Hercules. Owen is not very happy about the rain boots he is modeling (he hates to get his paws wet) and Hercules appears to be laughing at him (as much as a cat can laugh). After removing the offending boots from Owen, Kathleen locked up the house and went to meet Maggie at the Artist's Co-op to help move things up to the second floor so they wouldn't get water damaged. Kathleen and Maggie move all the perishables up to the second floor and run into one of the other co-op members, Jaeger Merrill, who just has to get his .02 cents in even when no one wants to hear it. He has this plan to hire a manager to run the co-op and to look for corporate sponsorship. The majority of the members aren't interested he just keeps harping on it. It's no wonder that a couple of hours later when Maggie is checking the water level in the basement she finds his dead body floating at the foot of the stairs. Who did it, and why are the main questions, and that is the crux of this story. We find out many secrets and hidden pasts, things best left alone, and now shining in the light of day. Copycat Killing is the third book in the Magical Cats Mystery series and by far the most complex one to date. I enjoyed it immensely and strongly suggest that you add it to your book ordering lists. FTC Full Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book from the author, who only asked for a fair and impartial review of it.show more
