For a first in a series, this book shows promise. I liked the characters and hope to learn more about them in the next in the series. They seem like an odd mixture to have become friends, but that just adds to the enjoyment in my mind. I think you have to have owned a cat to really appreciate Hamlet and his antics. I laughed out loud in many places where Hamlet was expressing himself. (If you are well read enough to appreciate the many literary references found throughout you will enjoy it even more). I look forward to book number 2.

Excellently written mystery with a black cat that pulls out all of the clues needed to solve the murder. Thoroughly entertaining and fast reading - Hard to put it down.

I really enjoyed this book. I though I had it figured out who the killer was, but was surprised at the end. I love the way the author has Hamlet the cat giving clues. Also there is some really good humor in it.

Good writing, great mix of characters, and a cat who is as independent as they come. Hope this is going to be a long and successful series.

I enjoyed this book! Its a great cozy mystery set in a bookstore with its own prowling feline who has a great taste in books. The characters and story are well-written. The ending (i thought) was going in one direction but then took a good turn to discover the true murderer. If you enjoy Carolyn G Hart's series with "Annie Darling" and the bookstore in the Carolina's (minus all the mystery novel trivia), then you will enjoy this first in a NEW series! I highly recommend it.

Darla Pettistone inherits her late great aunt's (Dee's) brownstore in Brooklyn that has housed Pettistone Fine Books for many year. On top of inheriting a bookstore, she inherits her aunt's black cat, Hamlet, the stores unofficial mascot, who has free roam of the shop. There are also some other kooky characters working at the shop, including an spunky ex cop, a distinguished professor and many others. This is cozy mystery material all down to the murder. a writer of teen/young adult fiction stops into the shop for a book signing of her latest book. She is then run down while taking a smoke break. the days after the teen crowd decide they what nothing to do with Darla's store. So, she along with the ex-policewoman that handles security, and a off duty NYPD Detective named Reese decide to go after the murderer to keep Darla's reputation and popularity form slipping. It is a great read and I enjoyed to mystery form beginning to end, including Hamlet "help" with the investigation

Liked the cat... I enjoyed the book until I got to the part where the protagonists were starting to unravel the mystery.  I don't want to give away any of the plot, so what I say from here on will be necessarily vague.  Suffice to say that I found it disheartening that one of the characters was portrayed using stereotypes that are aimed at discrediting survivors of domestic abuse (and also reinforced some mean-spirited attitudes towards people with mental health issues). I don't think the plot was advanced at all by writing the character that way - it wasn't necessary, in my opinion.  I couldn't get into the book after that.  There are so many really good cozy mysteries out there, I won't miss this author's works.  Just sorry I wasted money on it.
