Feline Fiction on Fridays #87 at Amber's Library featuring **A Hiss-Tory of Magic** by Harper Lin

Welcome To

With Amber ~ The Best Library Kitty in the entire Mewton~Clawson Parish

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library.

Sadly the P.A. is still snotty and unwell, so today's post is a bare-bones affair.

But so mew don't feel too cheated, here's a gorgeous picture of yours truly! MOL

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book before the P.A. sneezes all offur me again, EEEEEWWWWWWWW!!!!

This week I'm sharing

A Hiss-Tory of Magic

 Wonder Cats Mystery Book 1


Harper Lin

**FYI the above image is an affiliate link. I will get a rather modest commission should mew decide to click through and purrchase it**

Here's the book blurb:

Cath Greenstone, her cousin Bea, and her hippie aunt Astrid live in Wonder Falls, a small town near the mystical Niagara Falls. They run the Brew-Ha-Ha café, and naturally, they’re witches hiding in plain sight along with their three magical cats, Treacle, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallow. 

When Brew-Ha-Ha's baker is burnt to a crisp, along with their beloved café, Aunt Astrid lets out a big family secret: a powerful spell book, a Greenstone heirloom from the Salem days, has been stolen from its secret hiding spot in the café. If it’s fallen into the wrong hands, black magic could destroy not only Wonder Falls but the world. 

A secret society… A new detective with a shady past… A once-bullied local returning to town as a multimillionaire. 

Who in town could know Cath’s family secret? Cath, Bea, and Astrid must use their witch powers to uncover the deadly truth. Cath communicates with their cats, also magically inclined, and they help uncover more than one secret lurking in wonderful Wonder Falls. 

The 1st novel in this popular paranormal mystery series featuring modern-day witches and their magic cats.


3 cats, 3 witches, an entire cast of dubious characters and red herrings galore, this book has it all.

A great start to a new paranormal, kitty cozy mystery series.

The kitties have a decent role, which mew know is always a huge plus fur me, as if there's no cats, it's no fun! MOL  They are a diverse bunch too which is nice.

The plot hurtles along and has some nice twists and turns. Though the town cop, is as always a bit of a schmuck to start with - rather cliched - hence the 4 stars this week, but apart from that I really enjoyed it and will definitely be trying the next one in the series. and there's 9 more to go at, so mew know that will purrlease me immensely! MOL

Would I recommend it to mew, yes I would!
