Mimi Lee Gets a Clue: 04/08/20

Mimi Lee Gets a Clue

Mimi Lee Gets a Clue by Jennifer J. Chow is the start of the Sassy Cat mystery series. Mimi Lee on her opening day of Hollywoof, a dog groomers in West L.A., she's given a beautiful white Persian cat with striking blue eyes. What she doesn't expect, and who would, is that he can talk. Imagine if you will, Meowth in a Persian body.

Mimi's first two customers happen to be owners of Chihuahuas. Both appear to have something wrong with their legs. She gets curious, expecting that there's a puppy mill working nearby. She gets the breeder's info and goes to visit. It's as bad as she expected and she makes a complaint to the police.

The next morning, she's visited by a homicide detective because the breeder was murdered sometime after she left. With eyewitness reports from his neighbors and her complaint on file, she is the prime suspect! Can she and Marshmallow the cat, solve the murder before she's formally charged?

This inaugural volume is like a happy blending of the Kitty Couture series by Julie Chase and the Noodle Shop Mystery series by Vivien Chien. The setting, though, is in familiar Los Angeles and takes full advantage of the setting. The 405 is as much a character as the Mimi and Marshmallow are.

I am now eagerly awaiting the second book, Mimi Lee Reads Between the Lines which releases November 10, 2020.
