One of my favourite genres of books to read when my mind and heart need some comfort are cosy mysteries, especially when they have sassy little felines in them and purrfectly punny titles. When 2021 began, I anticipated another year of quarantine-living along with more heart-related treatment shindigs, so I went on a sort of cosy mystery buying quest since then.
Curiosity Thrilled the Cat by Sofie Kelly is the first novel in a cosy mystery series called, The Magical Cats Mysteries. It is about a librarian named Kathleen Paulson after she moves to Maryville Heights, Minnesota where she gets adopted by two stray kitties. Owen is a tabby with a catnip addiction and Hercules is a tuxedo babe that shares Kathleen’s love of Barry Manilow. When a murder interrupts the local town’s music festival, Kathleen is labelled the prime suspect.
