Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #35 featuring Cat in an Indigo Moon

Welcome To


With Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty


Supurr salutations fellow biblio-cats

*waves paw*

I do hope mew've been having a pawesome week, and some sunshine, our weather warmed up offur the last few days and if mew read Monday's post mew'll see that Basil and Smoochie were doing a bit of earthing as the weather was so great! 

The good news is the new lawn is finished and looking most marvelous, sadly the electrician hasn't turned up yet so the planting on patio is now at a standstill until he arrives and installs the lighting. 


Smooch and Pandora were the soil and lawn inspection crew.

Pandora said in her odd little accent. "This lawn is quite satisfactory, I vill tell the P.A. it passes the paw test."


Meanwhile Smooch was back in the soil patch where the old pond used to be, before he and Parsley decided to depth charge it. Yep seriously they blew it up.

"Oh wow, I just love dirt!" he beamed. "This is the bestest, I hope the P.A. doesn't plant anything here as it's just purrfect how it is."  [mew can see his earthing video here from Mondays post]

Parsley decided to try out the new brick edging and said. "No more wet paws fur me, this is so pawesome!"


Then he got photobombed descended on by some of the hoard, which completely ruined his news report!

We'll show mew more pics when it looks a little more finished with the planting and on that note I think it's time fur this weeks book...



This week on book reviews with Amber, I'm sharing

Cat in an Indigo Moon

A Midnight Louie Mystery


Book #10

by



Here's the book blurb courtesy of Amazon UK:

At the Blue Dahlia, the forties-style music club where homicide lieutenant Carmen Molina moonlights as a torch singer, life is becoming considerably less easygoing. An unidentified woman is found dead in the parking lot, with the words "she left" spray painted nearby. 

Soon, another victim is found dead in a church parking lot. Is a serial killer at work in Molina's backyard? And will Molina have to call in the dreaded amateur sleuth Temple Barr to help crack the case? Meanwhile, Midnight Louie, Temple's jet-black feline with a nose for the notorious, get entangled in a reluctant sleuthing partnership with his disapproving daughter, Midnight Louise. 

Will Louie and the feisty Louise be able to crack their case? Does Molina really need Temple's help. or does she have more devious plans in mind? And will Louie and Temple be able to accept their imperfect partners before they meet with a far more agonizing end?

When I bought this book I had no idea it was #10 in the series - OOPS!

This is another bite-sized listen purrfect fur a lazy Sunday afternoon in the hammock in garden, I also didn't realize that this was an abridged audio book either, as I normally only buy unabridged books, so hey this week I stuffed up big time, MOL.

Anyhoo, even though it's book #10 and there are 28 in the entire series, and it's the abridged version I really did enjoy it and will go back to the beginning and start from fresh as I love a saga of a series.

The cats play a great role and are so entertaining, if I had thumbs, it would get a thumbs up but as I don't it gets a paws up instead. 

I'm sure mew'll love it and as it was originally published in 1998 I'm sure some of mew will have come across before now.


Paperback copy: 369 pages

Audio Edition: 3 hours 5 Mins

  14. The garden is coming along a treat, and I loves the idea of the cat walk way around the outside so you can check out the nip shrubs etc. MOL Any plans for a moat?
    Now this sounds like a great series to get stuck into, and there are 28! That is a good few reads, for sure. I hope they are all still available? Purrs, ERin
