Curiosity Thrilled the Cat by Sofie Kelly is an easy to read, fun book for cat lovers. Kathleen moves to the small town of Mayville Heights, Minnesota to oversee the renovation of the town’s library. She takes in two feral cats – Owen and Hercules – and learns they have more interesting quirks than enjoying catnip and listening to Barry Manilow. It doesn’t take long before Kathleen is considered a suspect in a murder. After all, the person who finds the body is always a suspect! She’s determined to clear her name and find out who did it. But it’s not easy finding the truth when you’re a suspect and an outsider in a small town. With the help of a few friends, and Owen and Hercules, she solves the mystery.
Three paws up. I’m looking forward to reading Sleight of Paw by Sofie Kelly which is coming out in September. In the meantime, I’m reading another mystery with cats: How to Wash a Cat by Rebecca M. Hale.
