Cat Trick: 12/17/21

Cat Trick

Cat Trick by Sofie Kelly and Cassandra Campbell (Narrator) is the fourth book in the Magical Cats mystery series. The local businesses of Mayville Heights is trying to convince Legacy Tours to add their town to their luxury tours. Cofounder Mike Glazer is from the town and they feel that gives them an edge in their bid. Unfortunately he is found dead in a tent on the boardwalk.

Kathleen's magical cat, Hercules, makes the discovery. While everyone hopes his death was natural causes, she suspects it wasn't. Then her friend is accused in his death because of some obviously planted evidence.

This new murder investigation puts strains on Kathleen's relationship with Detective Marcus Gordon. She also has an impending deadline. Her contract with the library is coming to an end. Will she stay on longer or chose to go home to Boston? If she goes back to Massachusetts, what will happen to her cats?

The mystery is a mixture of business shenanigans and mistaken identity. I had the wrong idea as to who was impersonating whom, going for the solution from "The Truth in the Wine" (Father Brown, series 3, episode 9). Instead, the solution is a variation on that theme but on a different tangent.

The fifth book is: Final Catcall (2013).

Four stars
