Synopsis from Goodreads:

My Review

Becca Colwin is working in a shop called Charm and Cherish.  She’s taken aback when a young woman shows up and leaves a valuable violin behind.  The young woman vanishes and Becca tries to find her.  When she does, there’s a dead body involved.  Becca’s friend Maddy warns her not to trust the girl, but Becca is sure she’s trustworthy.

Joining Becca in her search is her young kitty, Clara.  What Becca doesn’t know is that Clara and her two sisters have special powers and are watching over Becca.  Clara is assigned the task of secretly following Becca wherever she goes.

This is the third book in the Witch Cats of Cambridge series.  It’s basically told from kitty Clara’s point of view.  I love that little cat.  She, and her sisters, are just as strong as any human character.  With each book we learn a little more about the three cats’ history and what is behind their special powers.

I did find it was a bit slow-moving in some spots.  I had a general idea of how the story would unfold halfway through.  

I’m hoping there will be more books in the series as I really would love to learn the whole story behind these cute kitties.
