Review/Giveaway: Murder of the Cat’s Meow by Denise Swanson

Cozy Mystery


Obsidian Mystery

Release Date:
September 2012

The owner of Scumble River’s bowling alley, Bunny Reid, comes up with the idea of an online dating service called Cupid’s Cat’s Meow. She plans to set her online service to the backdrop of cat show events. She intends for this venture to bring out-of-towners to the small Illinois town, not to mention some extra cash in her pocket. It sounds like a profitable plan and she enlists the help of school psychologist, Skye Denison.

Skye agrees to help, but she has an awful lot going on in her own life. She’s busy planning her wedding to the local police chief, Wally Boyd, and to make matters worse, she has a ghost haunting her house. As soon as she and Wally get intimate, the ghost makes trouble. Skye is determined to exorcise her house before Wally moves in but when a nasty judge at the cat show is murdered with a cat toy, she has to forget about her resident ghost and find a murderer.

I have read the first ten books in this series. This is number fifteen, so I have a few to catch up on but I’m still enjoying this series. It’s as if I am revisiting old friends even though I missed a few years in their lives. Skye is a great character and I enjoyed the plot line. I couldn’t figure out who did it until I got to the end, but it’s making me want to read more. It’s fast-paced, quick read.

This is a fun cozy series. #16 comes out in September and I can’t wait!
