Review: The Counterfeiter-Catching Cat by Alannah Rogers

Cozy Mystery


Release Date:
June 2015

Synopsis from Goodreads:

The leaves have turned and autumn has finally come to the small town of Ashbrook, New Hampshire. Beatrice Young, the sixty-two-year-old owner of the Cozy Cat CafĂ©, is busy slinging coffee for tourists. Yet when her ever-perceptive Maine Coon cat, Hamish, sniffs out a fake twenty-dollar bill, the hunt is on to find its maker. And then there’s the fact that Jordan Clark has disappeared – he was seen walking out of a bar towards the woods, never to be seen again.

With the help of the ever-grumpy sheriff, her black cat Lucky, and her ex-husband and best friend Matthew, Beatrice finds intriguing links between the two mysteries. Jordan has a complicated past, one that could draw out a dangerous killer and place him squarely in Beatrice’s path. In the end, it’s up to her feline companions to find the clues that will keep her safe, put the culprit behind bars, and restore order to Ashbrook once more.

The Counterfeiter-Catching Cat is the first book in the Beatrice Young cozy cat mystery series.

My Review

This book had a few things I love starting with two adorable cat sleuths. It’s so much fun when the cats help solve the crimes. No, these cats don’t talk but they didn’t have to. They got their point across and helped to save the day.

Beatrice Young is an older amateur sleuth, which is another aspect I liked. She owns a Cozy Cat Cafe - an excellent setting for a cat mystery :) There’s a hint of romance which will probably be explored in future books.

It’s not a complex murdery mystery and can be read in just a couple of hours. It’s a good start to a new series and I’m looking forward to reading more.
