Review: Calico Confusion by Katherine Hayton

Cozy Mystery


Release Date:
July 21, 2019

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Marjorie Hardaway is worried her Cozy Kitten Cafe might soon go out of business. A property developer is building a rival store on the section in front, blocking out the wonderful view. However, her concern is soon replaced with a more serious problem when a new calico kitten turns out to be a witness to a murder!

When the police investigation into the killing points an accusing finger at her friend, Marjorie feels compelled to help. Especially as the sergeant in charge is overlooking a chief suspect—the same rogue land developer who's the bane of her existence.

Soon she has break-ins, upset kittens, and an eligible bachelor to contend with. But with investigators looking in the wrong direction, Marjorie must rely on her wits and community knowledge to solve the murder and bring the true perpetrator to justice before they can strike again.

My Review

The Cozy Kitten Cafe is open for business now, but there is a property developer standing by to infringe on their business. Marjorie Hardaway has worked hard to make her kitten cafe a success and the last thing she needs is someone building a competitive store next to hers.

When a new calico kitten turns up on her doorstep, Marjorie is shocked to discover that the adorable little kitty is a witness in a murder. She’s even more shocked to discover one of the prime suspects is the person looking to built a competing cafe next door to hers.

Marjorie quickly becomes the victim of vandals and she’s determined to find out who is behind these horrible events. She’s convinced it’s connected to the murder the new calico kitty witnessed.

This is an adorable cozy mystery filled with all sorts of kitties and, yes, even a murder to figure out. With the help of her cats, Marjorie is on the way to finding a killer.

It’s a fast-paced, quick read. It’s a short book that will fill an afternoon with fun, mystery, kitties and even a little romance. There is no violence or sex, just a good, clean mystery. I’m already looking forward to reading the next one in the series.
