Everyone thinks their cats are special -- but Owen and Hercules have powers that go far beyond an adorable look or an irresistible purr. Along with their owner, librarian Kathleen Paulson, they have an uncanny instinct for solving crimes... â It's been raining cats and dogs in Mayville Heights. The small town's been deluged, and now the local artists' co-op is on the verge of flooding. Kathleen has been up all night helping her friends move their creations to the safety of the upstairs studio.
The artwork survives, but when controversial mask maker Jaeger Merrill is found drowned in the co-op basement, Kathleen questions whether the death was accidental. After she discovers the artist was using an assumed name, she realizes she can't actually assume anything about him. With the help of handsome detective Marcus Gordon -- and her cats' extraordinary powers of detection -- it's up to Kathleen to unmask a killer.
I love this series, being a cat person helps. Good mystery, interesting characters. Look forward to the next one in this series. The cats are so much like my sister-in-laws. She has a tiger and a black and white. No disappearing, or walking through walls of course, but they are all very much cat characters. Their attitudes and my cats attitudes are very cat like and wonderful to be in love with. I have three and love them a bunch. Interested to see what she does with Roma and the property where the ferals are.
Really liked this book alot. Characters are becoming more developed. A real page-turner. The cats are just a riot, and the author's sense of humor with the main character's relationship with them is really good. I must be a crazy cat lady too, because I talk to my cat and dog all the time. :)
This book has Kathleen (MC) finding two bodies - one from the past and one poor soul who has just been murdered. When her friends find themselves as targets of a murder investigation, she and the kitties go into action to solve both murders.
