I really enjoyed this first book in Conant's Cat Lover's Mysteries. I certainly hope she writes more. I found that you have to give the book a chance to get going, it is a bit confusing at the beginning trying to figure out who is who, backgrounds, etc. So you may need to read a bit longer than the usual 50 page test. You will be rewarded with an excellent plot ~ I couldn't see the end coming ~ and a group of interesting characters. The main character is wonderful and makes you care about what happens to her. A little quirky, but a good read!
I have read Conant's dog books and this was recommended to me. I am glad it was. I really enjoyed it. A writer of cat mysteries finds a body on her doorstep - along with a cat (a living cat). She has told her readers for years that she has a cat but never has! She keeps the cat, along with another owned by the dead man. And stumbles across the killer during the course of things. The killer was NOT whom I suspected. Good one.
While the plot was excellent, I really didn't like the main character. I don't like her personality, her attitude and she wasn't someone I'd like to get to know.
Nice plot twist, good character development, but yuck.
First in the Cat Lovers Series. Looking forward to the next one. This was a litle different in that the main character is a cozy mystery writer who discovers a body at her front door, and often refers to plots of cozy mysteries to explian what "should" happen. Overall very enjoyable.
