Resourceful librarian Kathleen Paulson needs the help of her magical cats, Owen and Hercules, to clear the name of someone close to her heart in this mystery in the New York Times bestselling series...
Kathleen is excited to meet three old pals of her beau, Detective Marcus Gordon, while they visit charming Mayville Heights on business. But the reunion is cut short when one of the friends is killed—and the evidence points toward Marcus as the murderer.
Though it seems she doesn’t know all of Marcus’s secrets, Kathleen is sure he’s no killer. With his suspect status sidelining him from investigating the case, it’s up to Kathleen and her feline partners-in-crime to find whoever is framing Marcus—and make sure the good detective hasn’t found his last clue.

As soon as I finished this book on Halloween, I thought to myself, "oh, my, I really love these Magical Cats books!". Then I realized I said that our loud and actually meant it! That is how following an excellently written cozy mystery series with super-talented cats and totally-terrfic humans can have moments of enthusiasm! I enjoy the use of the library to develop the plot!

Sophie Kelly fooled me big time! I didn’t guess who dunnit until it became apparent towards the end of the book. I’m usually pretty good at solving cozy mysteries, but this time I was so wrong! I like that in a book. Our intrepid librarian heroine Kathleen, follows all the trails leading to the killer because this time all the clues point to her beloved Marcus as the perpetrator. We get to meet his father and find out why they are estranged. Of course, we can’t forget Hercules and Owen, her magical cats, that help her find out the last piece of information. Hercules even saves the day! This is such a fun series. I am looking forward to the next tail, um, tale!

Dollycas’s Thoughts In this 8th installment of this very popular series, Kathleen is fighting to show her boyfriend, Detective Marcus Gordon, had nothing to do with the death of his friend. Again Owen and Hercules offer their assistance along with Marcus’ partner to find the real killer. Sofie Kelly has given us another dynamite mystery with plenty of clues for the characters and readers to follow, but the feline tenacity plays a major part in the solution. I don’t want to spoil anything but one of the cats plays a hero at the end and it is much more than magical. The characters in this series really resonate with me. Kathleen loves living in Mayville Heights and her job at the library. Her relationship with Marcus is moving at a nice pace. She has made some great friends in her short time in town. Marcus takes his job seriously and does his best to keep Kathleen out of his investigations but realizes she has great insight. And I love the way they volunteer to take care of the feral cat population at Wisteria Hill. Since he has been taken off this case along with his partner, Kathleen tries to keep him in the dark until she needs answers to questions only he can answer. Owen and Hercules have much more to their story. They are magical in certain physical abilities but they are intuitive as well and truly seem to understand the English language very well. Being feral brings in another element. Not just anyone can scratch them behind the ears or just reach out and pet them. They have their people who they will protect and comfort. Treats like bacon and toys like Fred the chicken give certain people just a little advantage. I love these cats and it makes me miss mine every time I read one of this stories. The author all balances the drama with the fun “purrfectly”! Paws and Effect is a wonderful addition to this series. I should note you can read this book without reading any of the others as the author includes plenty of background while still leaving plots of previous books a mystery.
