Do you like cats? If you’re like me, then Yes, Yes, a billion times YES! Those who know me know I grew up with cats and, except the year I lived in an apartment with my then newly wed husband, I have always had at least one cat. So I think it’s safe to say that to read about a cat would be up my alley.

 

Not too long ago I came across a book by Lisa Shea called The Lucky Cat. It’s part of the Salem Massachusetts Mini Mystery series that Lisa has, which if you like the history of that city, these books would be just the thing for you. I didn’t have a lot of time to read so The Lucky Cat was the perfect fix! AND, I do need to share that I kind of know Lisa Shea is a big name so I was excited to pick this one up and see what her writing was like!

 

First, let me give you the rundown on The Lucky Cat:

  • As of January 24, 2017, it has 76 reviews with an average of 4.3 stars!
  • This is book one of thirty-one. You read that right, 31! She wrote one book a day from October 1 to October 31 back in 2014
  • It’s FREE!
  • With just 13 pages, you can read it in 10 minutes
  • It’s #17 in Mystery, Thriller & Suspense
  • #19 in 30 minute short reads: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense
  • I’d recommend for ages 14 and up (unless you don’t want the younger ones to read about magic, luck, etc.)
  • Completely clean!
  • There’s a tiny cliffhanger, but not important enough to where you have to read the rest. However, I’d recommend reading them all to get the complete story

 

Kathy Taylor, a black female police officer turned private investigator, moved to Salem, Massachusetts; a town surrounded by wiccans, herbalists and the like.

 

Her first client comes in looking for a stolen cat. This black cat had the power to help the client’s daughter get well from cancer. Now the cat is gone and the client’s daughter is getting sick again.

 

Kathy takes on the case and quickly figures out what happened and why. The cat may be closer than you think and may have been taken for a very meaningful purpose.

 

This is the purr-fect (see what I did there?) short read! The mystery aspect was great as the author did a great job putting the pieces together. I think things were described well, and that this magical cat was sweet. I already have one black cat, but this nice mini mystery makes me want to get another! I rated this 5 out of 5 stars!

Just this past week I finished reading a novel by Laekan Zea Kemp called “The Girl In Between”. My blog has featured many book spotlights, but I have yet to do a book review. “The Girl In Between” deserves one!

 

First things first, here is some basic information about “The Girl In Between”:

  • It has 727 reviews with an average 4.1 star rating (as of 12/13/2016)!
  • It is the first in a series of four novels
  • The kindle edition is 289 pages
  • As of 12/13/2016 it is #7 in Science Fiction & Fantasy – Paranormal & Urban
  • I don’t think it states this somewhere, but I would say this novel is geared towards young adult. However, I’m an adult and still enjoyed it so don’t let that scare you away
  • The best part? The kindle edition is FREE!
