A Cat in the Attic Mystery: The Magic of Halloween Night (Book 5 in 5 book series) by [Kathi Daley]Synopsis:

How is one to start again after losing the one thing that speaks to your heart and fuels your passion?

After a serious accident leaves Calliope Rose Collins unable to continue with the career that has owned her soul for most of her life, she returns to Foxtail Lake, Hollister House, and Great Aunt Gracie. After solving the murder of a local girl she begins writing freelance articles for the local newspaper. This turns into a full time career and a new passion and inner healing is found.

In book 5 in the series, Callie is faced with a personal choice as she stumbles onto a new mystery while helping the town prepare for the best Halloween it has ever seen. (Amazon)


The characters are well rounded and well developed. Callie and her great Aunt Gracie have such a great relationship and you can tell that they love each other deeply. They also love Paisley, the young neighbor who they have been taking care of after her grandmother becomes ill. As is usual with this author, all of the characters become people that you care about and root for.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the book from the very beginning. I felt like I was right there, watching the Halloween activities and spending time with Callie and Cass, Callie’s boyfriend. The mystery was well plotted and kept me engaged throughout the book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. It appears as if this series is ending, and the author ended it very well.
