Faux Paw: 11/29/22
Paws and Effect by Sofie Kelly and Cassandra Campbell (Narrator) (2016) is the eighth book in the Magical Cats mystery series. Kathleen Paulson and Detective Marcus Gordon are finally dating but the arrival of some old college friends might pose a threat to their relationship. Things are further complicated when one of his former colleagues is murdered and evidence points to Marcus.
All the way through I think we're supposed to doubt Marcus but the actual murderer was obvious to me from the moment the death was announced. Originally the murder is reported as an accident and I just knew who had to had done it. I even had a fairly good idea of why. It takes the majority of the remaining book for Kathleen and Detective Hope draw the same conclusion.
Like previous books in this series the final confrontation and climax is a nail biting scene. I knew Kathleen had to survive as there are more books in the series. Detective Hope, though, gets seriously injured and I wasn't sure she would make it to the end.
The ninth book is A Tale of Two Kitties (2017).
