A Case of Cat and Mouse
Magical Cats #12
By Sofie Kelly
Berkley, $26.00, 301pp
Published: September 2020

A reality TV crew has come to town and brought librarian Kathleen Paulson and her two magical cats more than their fair share of real-life drama, in the newest installment of this New York Times bestselling series.

Spring has come to charming Mayville Heights, and with it, some Hollywood glamour. The little town is abuzz because the reboot of a popular baking TV show is filming there. Librarian Kathleen Paulson is working as an advisor on historical facts for the show, local restaurants are providing catering for the camera crews, and Kathleen's faithful felines, Hercules and Owen, are hoping there is a cat treat challenge.

But then Kathleen finds one of the judges dead. She has solved many-a-murder with help from the supernaturally gifted Herc and Owen, and with the whole town on tenterhooks, the talented trio will have to have all paws on deck to chase down this killer.

Kathleen, the town’s head librarian, is working as research assistant for a reality TV show currently being filmed in town. When one of the judges is murdered and the primary suspect is a good friend, she is recruited to help find the killer. Along with the drama on the TV show’s production set, there are a series of pranks at the library that are escalating. As Kathleen investigates the murder she learns that many of the people involved have secrets - the question becomes whose secret is worth killing over.

This is a favorite series of mine, probably due a lot to Hercules and Owen who have special powers. Owen can become invisible at will while Hercules can literally walk through walls.  I’ll admit that I did not see the murderer coming until just before Kathleen did. I am looking forward to more adventures with Hercules and Owen. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
