It hasn¿t been a very good year for Theda Krakow, copy editor for the Morning Mail in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She and her boyfriend broke up when he took a job out of state and even more devastating her beloved cat James died. She quits as a copy editor to become a freelance writer for the Morning Mail. When she sees a kitten near a house in her neighborhood, she finds herself charmed by her. The kitten Mussetta belongs to Lillian Helmhold who has a house full of cats that people dump on her. --- Theda decides to do a story on Ms. Helmhold but on the day she approaches her she finds her dead in the house. The police think Lillian tripped and a resulting head injury caused her death but the victim¿s friend Violet Hayes thinks she was murdered. Theda believes it is a possibility and starts investigating even while she thinks someone is in the house illegally, looking for something. --- Clea Simon has a definite talent for writing investigative mysteries and her love for felines shine through on almost every page. Theda is gutsy, independent and totally likeable. The who-done-it is well crafted and readers will have a good time trying to figure out who the killer is and why it was necessary to kill an elderly lady who hurt no one. MEW IS FOR MURDER is a delightful start to a new series.--- Harriet Klausner

Slow Read

Too much detail about stuff that didn't pertain to the main story. I found myself skipping over pages just to get to the "meat" of the story.

    This book could have used a good editor.  It wasn't as bad as the endless coffee and Ikea lists in the "Dragon Tattoo" series, but there was a lot of needless detail.  The "deus ex felinia" was a bit much, not once but twice, and the first clue it delivered made less than zero sense, except it helped move the story along.    The ending was pretty obvious early on - not just the whodunnit, but the denouement.

    Fun feline-inspired murder-mystery, enjoyed reading it on vacation. A journalist with an affinity for cats wants to write a story about a crazy cat lady in the neighborhood, but the next day the cat lady is found dead. Was it an accident or murder? The journalist thinks murder and follows the clues to solve the mystery. Nothing heavy here, just an enjoyable light read.

    Enjoyable book

    A most enjoyable read, little too much of the club scene to suit me but I understand the connection. So glad the ending was what I expected it to be!
