Overview


When a magical presence is detected around a recent string of feline slayings, Libby, an enchantress, is determined to discover who is behind the odd deaths. But being a witch gifted by the Goddess won't protect her from the talented warlock the Coven sends to assist her. Kale weaves a spell more powerful than any she's ever seen--and he's sexy as sin. But why he's even needed for such a simple mission is beyond her.

While having some muscle around can't hurt her investigation, fighting her growing attraction for Kale is worse than a hex, especially considering she knows he--and their Coven--are hiding something from her. When she turns up clues that point to something far more sinister than slaughtered cats, though, the elusive warlock isn't the her only concern. She now has a political rebellion on her hands, too. And when the truth about who she really is begins to surface, the only person Libby can trust is herself.

Meet the Author


Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasies with heart-squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll also find fast-paced action, life-threatening moments, and a big, bad villain who needs to be destroyed. She lives in Southwestern Ontario with her husband and two children. If she’s not plugging away at a new story—which is rare, since her muse is annoying—you’ll find her camping, curling up to the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy and Dexter.

Stacey welcomes comments from readers. You can find her at staceykennedy.com.

    The Cat's Meow is the first book in the Witch's Brew series by

    The Cat's Meow is the first book in the Witch's Brew series by Stacey Kennedy. It's a fast paced, Urban Fantasy story about an enchantress named Libby. She's a mouthy witch who works for the Coven to investigate deaths. Because of past issues, she doesn't trust warlocks and isn't happy to find out that a new warlock in town has been assigned to work on a case with her.

    Libby doesn't want Kale in her business, but she has trouble fighting her attraction to him. Suddenly, the case they are working on becomes extremely dangerous and their lives are in danger. If that isn't enough, Libby realizes that not only Kale, but her Coven, are hiding things from her.

    I could totally feel Libby's frustrations over secrets being kept from her. She feels like she can't trust anyone, and she has good reason to. What really upsets her, is getting closer to Kale but having him continue to not be honest with her. However, even though this story is just told from Libby's point of view – you can tell that it kills Kale to not be honest with her.

    Kale is probably my favorite character in this book. He is completely different than other warlocks that Libby knows. He is tough and cocky, but he has this really sweet side to him. He's a good guy and had good reasons for his mysteriousness. I liked Libby too, but she was just a tad too mouthy for my taste. Fortunately, she finally let her guard down toward the end of the book and showed more of a tender side. Libby's attitude was a perfect match for Kale. There was a lot of sexual tension in this book, and not much happening in that department until the end. It was so frustrating! These two characters clearly wanted each other, but NOTHING kept happening!

    However, there was never a dull moment. There was a lot of action and mystery involved. And of course, some steamy adult action at the end. I always enjoy Stacey Kennedy's books and will be looking forward to the next one in this series.

    The Cat¿s Meow is a captivating mystery story that has a lot of

    The Cat’s Meow is a captivating mystery story that has a lot of twist and turns that leave your head spinning! Libby, who is an Enchantress, is given a job to investigate a string of cat murder’s that have a dark magic presence surrounding them. When the coven assign’s Kale, a Warlock, to assist her, Libby’s hackles rise. Do they think she cannot do her job? One thing that Libby has to admit, at least to herself, is the absolute swoonworthiness of Kale. He is an Alpha Male that touches all of Libby’s buttons to the point that she is not sure if she wants to kiss him or strangle him! The intense sexual tension between the two is just…WOW!

    As Kale and Libby try to solve the cat murder’s, an evil from Libby’s past resurfaces and Libby finds out that maybe there is a lot more going on then the Coven let on, and Kale seems to know more then he is saying as well. Libby’s frustration about Kale, her anxiety over what the Coven is hiding, and the rise in dark magic has the reader trying to figure out what is going to happen next, and trying to decide who Libby can and cannot trust.

    The mystery, action, romance, and magic of this story make it a must read that will make you wish that book 2 was already out!

    'The Cat's Meow' is the first book in a urban fantasy/romance se

    'The Cat's Meow' is the first book in a urban fantasy/romance series that follows witch and coven worker Libby, who has been assigned a new case by the coven to investigate - a series of strange cat deaths in the area. On top of the new case, Libby is not amused by the warlock sent to help her solve the case - the handsome and mysterious Kale. Will Libby be able to keep her mind - and hands - off Kale long enough to solve the mystery before things go from bizarre to horrible?

    This was a really fun and interesting urban fantasy novel that will have readers begging for the next book after finishing the last sentence. Libby is a great main character - she's witty and smart with a wicked attitude. She's good at what she does - casting spells and working for the Coven - and she knows it. The tension between her and Kale is almost immediate and it's interesting to watch their interactions as they both try to fight their growing attraction to each other. The plot is a great one - witches are always a must read for me - so a new urban fantasy series focused on witch's was right up my alley. I loved the back story we learn about the Coven and the magic, along with the detailed structure and descriptions of the witches, warlocks, and the Coven. I hope that we continue to delve deeper into the politics and history as the series progresses. The writing was fantastic and had me completely immersed within the first couple of sentences. I found myself reading as fast as I could to see what would happen next, all while trying to put the pieces of the mystery together before the characters did. The book has a quick pace and an easy flow that made this a fast read for me - mostly because I couldn't stop reading! Highly recommended for fans of paranormal fiction and definitely for fans of urban fantasy series!

    Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    The Cat's Meow is the first book that I have read by Kennedy, and I must say that it definitely won't be the last. Kennedy delivers an intriguing urban fantasy story full of action, mystery, a dash of romance, and a great start for what I am hoping is a series. The book begins with Libby and her best friend, Peyton, investigating the strange murder of a series of cats, and what happens next leads to Libby being challenged like she has never been before. Kennedy does a great job with her development of Libby who has been coasting along in her job not exactly following the rules of her coven which makes her question Kale's intentions when he enters her murder case. Having her mother in her coven makes it hard for Libby as well as the fact that she is constantly trying to protect her best friend. I really liked how Kennedy tied in Libby's relationships with her family and friends into the challenges that Libby faces as the book progresses. Libby's development is well done and comes full circle by the end of the book as she embarks on a different path. Kale is a great romantic hero full of enough mystery to keep the reader and Libby guessing. I also enjoyed the secondary characters of Peyton and Jace who I hope have a bigger role in a future book. The book's story and mystery were well done and are effective enough to keep the reader guessing. I also really enjoyed Kennedy's world building creating a world full of magic and intrigue. Overall The Cat's Meow was a fabulous read that I would most definitely recommend if you enjoy mystery, romance, and thrills with your urban fantasy. I'm looking forward to reading another adventure with Libby.

    I really enjoyed this book. Kale is just sigh worthy and although Libby seems a little too snarky or sarcastic at times it actually makes her more human and relatable. I am looking forward to reading what the future holds for these two.

    This book… Oh my God, this book. It took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Everything Libby felt I was right there with her. Boy, was I.

    Libby is an Enchantress who doesn’t trust warlocks (for some pretty solid reasons, I must say). So when a warlock gets assigned to her case, she is less than thrilled to have him there. Even if he is sexy as hell. She is strong and independent, and doesn’t take crap from anyone (which I admire). I really, really liked Libby and connected to her within the first few pages.

    Kale is mysterious, and he doesn’t reveal ANYTHING, which frustrated me to no end. I feared that his reasons were less than honorable and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why he couldn’t reveal what was going on, who he was, where he came from (Y’know, those pesky things). He has an alpha male personality and I really loved him.

    But though there is a romance factor in this book, it doesn’t predominate. The mystery factor of “Who’s doing this?” kept me so wrapped up in the book. I honestly did not see most of what happened coming.

    Seriously.

    If you know me, you know that I can pretty much foresee what’s going to happen. That’s just how I roll. But this book kept me on my toes and had some pretty freaking amazing twists at the end that had me stopping and having a mini freak-out in my room while everyone was asleep. (It’s not fun having to be quiet when your world gets turned upside down.)

    Stacey Kennedy spun an amazing tale that never let me on to what was really happening until it happened. The romance, the mystery, the action, and the heat between the main characters kept me flipping the pages frantically (and hyperventilating) so I could see what would happen next.

    Though there is no cliffhanger, I cannot wait until the next book of this series. I’m serious. Can I have it? Now?
