Copycat Killing: 11/06/21
Copycat Killing by Sofie Kelly is the third of the Magical Cats mystery series. Kathleen Paulson takes a terrible fall when the hillside at feral cat colony collapses. When the debris settles a skeleton is discovered. Meanwhile in town a local artist is found dead, floating in a flooded basement.
Both mysteries: the cold case and the recent drowning were relatively easy to solve. The fun part was in discovering if and how the two related to each other.
The present day drowning has an obvious solution for the observant reader. The first time that relevant clues were dropped I knew exactly what had happened. Honestly, the artist's death serves more as a distraction and foil for Kathleen to keep her from efficiently solving the cold case.
The fourth book in the series is Cat Trick (2013)
