A Tale of Two Kitties: 01/19/23
A Tale of Two Kitties by Sofie Kelly and Cassandra Campbell (Narrator) (2017) is the ninth book in the Magical Cats mystery series. Victor, Leo's brother returns decades after being run out of town for his affair with Leo's wife. Shortly after Victor arrives, promising to reconcile, Leo is murdered.
For reasons that are beyond me, the police decide Leo's son, Simon, is the murderer. Maybe I just read and watch too many mysteries but the obvious solution was there from the time Kathleen first discovers Simon's body.
In fact the mystery seemed like the B plot with the A plot being Kathleen's interest in figuring out why certain Wisteria hill cats have supernatural powers. She also seems close to telling her boyfriend that his cat like her two can do some remarkable things.
The dramatic conclusion to this book seemed to come out of the blue, much like the climax of Wedding Day Murder by Leslie Meier (2001). The killer could have kept quiet and gone home and gotten away with the murder.
The tenth book is The Cats Came Back (2018).
