Mystery novelist Sabrina Tate and her cat, Hitchcock, set out to catch a conniving killer in the next Bad Luck Cat mystery from the author of The Black Cat Knocks on Wood and Black Cat Crossing...

The town of Lavender, Texas is buzzing with tourists, and local businesses are pulling out all the stops for the annual Pumpkin Days Festival. On the eve of opening day, Sabrina comes face-to-face with her doppelgänger, Tia Hartwell, a caricature artist at the festival. The similarities between the two women are striking, including their matching black cats. 

Sabrina learns that her new twin Tia has an enemy: bad-tempered jewelry vendor Calvin Fisher. When Fisher is found slumped over dead in his pickup, Tia tops the suspect list. With the help of her feline sidekick, Sabrina must clear her new look-alike friend before she finds herself in a deadly case of double jeopardy.

I just love the characters in this series. As an owner of a black cat, I can verify that Hitchcock's behavior is spot on. Sabrina is luck to have him.

[I won this paperback from the author online. I am choosing to review it although it was never requested. I was not influenced by how I received it.] "I had to know the truth about these people,though, even if that meant painting a target on my back." Sabrina Tate and her cat Hitchcock have settled nicely into the town of Lavender TX. However, as much as she'd like to be making a new life for herself, in some ways her old life keeps catching up with her, up to and including a possible twin in the form of Tina Hartwell, who, with her son and their cat Merlin have stirred up a little trouble of their own as they set up a booth for the jammed packed Fall Pumpkin Festival chaired by Sabrina's aunt Rowe. Toss in a bunch of characters ranging from thieves to town folk and add a budding relationship with the local game warden, sprinkle with a surprise visit from Bree's mother and stepfather, and what starts out as a bunch of misaligned puzzle pieces becomes, in the end, another prize winning outing by Kay Finch in this, her third in the Black Cat series. An extremely satisfying cozy mystery that you just have to finish!

Murderous bad luck may follow the characters in The Bad Luck Cat Mysteries, but there’s only good luck for anyone reading it! Many authors have an enviable talent of making words flow across the page. Each word and sentence from chapter to chapter blending flawlessly to form a story so captivating you never want it to end. THE BLACK CAT SEES HIS SHADOW is just such a book, and Kay Finch just such an author. Having enjoyed the first two books in this series, I was excited to finally have this installment in my hands. It was totally worth the wait! I have liked protagonist Sabrina Tate and her “bad luck” black cat, Hitchcock since first reading them in, BLACK CAT CROSSING. Oh, and Aunt Roe! I just love Aunt Roe! They’re great characters, and it’s been wonderful watching them grow throughout the three books. In THE BLACK CAT SEES HIS SHADOW, author Finch introduces us to Sabrina and Hitchcock’s “twins”, Tia and Merlin. What an interesting way to shake a story up! I’ve seen the whole “it was my twin” thing done before (mostly on soaps), but Kay Finch’s use and handling of the twin characters was quite unique in the way she wrote them. Talk about adding mayhem to a mystery! All this and recipes too! Make sure to look for them in the back of the book. THE BLACK SEES HIS SHADOW was an all-around great book. The twin twist, the mystery, every aspect of this story was well done, and simply made for a great read. The best in the Bad Luck Cat Mysteries so far!
