Cat Killed A Rat by ReGina Welling, Erin Lynn

Nothing bad ever happens in Ponderosa Pines

At least, that's what anonymous gossip columnist Chloe LaRue and her best friend, town matriarch EV Torrence thought--until a resident of their sleepy little village turns up dead. When EV becomes suspect #1, even Chloe can't stop the rumor mill from churning.

Against Detective Nate Harper and Deputy Dalton Burnsoll's orders, Chloe and EV mount their own investigation--but what they uncover might just rock the community to its very core. Could one of their own beloved citizens really be a killer?

Clean read: no graphic violence or sex.

This is my first ever review, but then this is the first book that I enjoyed enough to leave a comment. I will let you experience the plot on your own, but the crafting of the story is really what engaged me from the start all the way to the end. I enjoy a good mystery that I can't figure out whodunit at the beginning of the book. Kudos to the authors. I hope there will be many more of their great reads to come! EL

I love cats but could not get interested in this "negative" sounding book.

Hard to put down. Sometimes hard to figure out people and relationships but worth it for the ending,

Good book with great characters. I didn't care for the abrupt ending though.

Any book that gives you a death in the first few pages should be filled with investigation and clues. Not so here. This book is full of description, of places in town , of the people therein, even of the food eaten, but very little fact, it appeared that all law enforcement was nonexistant and the 2 women claiming the sbility to solve the murder(s) just spend time gossiping or running from gossip.

The ending was too abrupt, it kinda leaves you hanging. It was a good story until the rushed ending, left with too many questions unanaswered. 173 pages. Probably my last book by this writer as that is a real dislike of mine to not have a complete ending. Not saying you don't find out who the killer is. GJRA

This story was an interesting cozy mystery with several twists to keep you guessing. It’s a very different kind of small town run more like a commune than a town but it had been a commune in the beginning founded by hippies. Currently it retained some of the same characteristics with some differences. One of those differences is that it’s decisions are made by majority vote as well as three people (the term escapes me). In the book the big decision on the table is whether to allow the town to be annexed by the bigger town next door. It starts with a rather heated debate on that very subject. It was hard to put down but an enjoyable read.

Ponderosa Pines used to be a commune back in the day. It eventually became a little town but kept that commune feeling, and form of government. Of course as in any small town you have your gossips and those who are gossiped about. This town is no different. Cloe LaRue writes a gossip column for the local paper--Her closest friend EV is the daughter of one of the founders of the town and really seems to be up on all the gossip herself! Then the unthinkable happens--one of the townspeople is found dead in the church. Was it an accident or did someone try to do him in? Then his brother is found dead--bashed in the back of the head. A lot of people start pointing the blame at EV. It is up to Cloe and EV and the sherriff and his deputy to get to the bottom of all this. So what happened--accident or murder for the first person--the second was definitely murder--but who in this small town did it and why? This mother daughter team of authors have brought to life small town living with all its good and bad!!

Entertaining read! Best friends, mystery, love interests. And I liked the way they wrapped everything up in the end. That is often what is missing in otherwise good stories

Formulaic and Poorly Written I didn't get past the beginning part of the book where the protagonist and her friends went out to a bar, because the writing was so bad and the characters so stereotyped and shallow I just couldn't stand it anymore. Why oh why do so many cozy writers all describe the women as having perfect bodies, always wearing high heels and having fabulous clothes, plus they all drink red wine? The men are all muscular and handsome, yet humble and "like a brother" (at first). Please stop copying each other, it's getting really annoying! Add all that to the "snorting" characters do (instead of just laughing), and that insane "eyebrow wiggling" to try to convey suggestiveness - come ON, the last person I saw wiggle his eyebrows was Groucho Marx! Yet, every poorly-written cozy uses these exact phrases. Additionally, the characters are one-dimensional and over-the-top, with people yelling and storming out of city council meetings for very little if any provocation. The "girls" who go out for a night on the town are predatory and rather stupid, and represent every stereotype of women of a certain age. I cannot recommend this book. I am deleting it off my Nook.
