Great Read!

Ali Brandon has written a great second book in what I hope is a long series. What I liked is that it had some twists that kept me guessing until the end. The charactors were believable especially Hamlet the cat. I highly recommend this book.

Cute, cozy mystery.

Love the story line and the cat is so funny, and true to cat behavior.

    A cozy bookstore setting

    I am a cozy mystery reader. This is the best setting for a mystery (besides a castle during a storm)..a bookstore with a persnickety black cat.

    The pro's of this story....good characters including a black cat who enjoys a good book; a great setting; a decent plot.
    The con's of this story....a main character who is obsessed with local crimes and can't help but include herself into the drama even when it doesn't directly affect her AND suspects everyone closest to her EXCEPT the actual murderer. This makes for a "dumb" main character which gets to be a little disappointing. No one wants a main character that can't see what is right in front of her face.

    The "dumbing down" of the main character in this #2 in this series made this a slightly disappointing read.

    I recommend that you read #1 of this series....it was much better!!
