A Whisker In Time
Whales and Tails, Book #16
It is Halloween on Madrona Island and the entire gang is knee deep in the annual festivities. When a body is found in the storage room of the bar Danny and Aiden recently purchased, Danny is considered to be a prime suspect in the man’s death. When it looks as if Danny had both motive and opportunity, things go from Halloween eerie to down right terrifying.
This novel will contain a bonus short story along with hearty fall recipes. (Goodreads)
The characters are well rounded and well developed. Cait and Cody make a great couple and their relationship is moving along in the right direction, (the direction toward the altar). I like spending time with Cait and her family and friends, I feel like I am there visiting my friends. They will do anything to help each other and to see justice served. And as usual, the magical cats help to solve any mystery and add a special mystical feeling to the story.
The mystery is well developed and well rounded. There are enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider. Throw in some red herrings and twist and turns and your have a top notch mystery to solve. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick easy read. There is enough descriptions of the setting that I felt like I was right there, visiting the island, but not so much as to bog down the book.
I would recommend this book, and series, to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery with a touch of magic. Pick up your copy and see what I mean.
