Feline Fiction on Fridays #90 at Amber's Library featuring **Cat Got your Diamonds** by Julie Chase

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

Many apologies fur my absence last week, the local Kitty History Society asked at rather short notice if they could use my library as their venue, due to a double booking at the local Village Hall.

So I said, "I'd be thrilled, I'll get the kettle on and sandwiches ready!"

In fact Buster Frogmore, the lead historian of the M.C.H.S. [Mewton-Clawson Historical Society] said he thought my library was much better than the Village Hall and asked if they could use it again next month and they want to pay too, which is even better as that means more new books fur me! MOL 

And speaking of which, I think it's time to share this weeks top book pick.

This week I'm sharing

Cat Got your Diamonds

Here's the book blurb:

Grandeur and opulence are everything in the famed New Orleans Garden District where pets are family and no bling is too big. Opening Furry Godmother, pet boutique and organic treat bakery, is Lacy Marie Crocker’s dream come true--until the glitter gun used to make her Shih Tzu tutus becomes a murder weapon. And Lacy becomes public enemy #1.


I started off not loving this book, as it was furry formulaic, but as the narrator continued I found myself really enjoying it, though similar to many others in the Cat Cozy Mystery genre, it did have it's own purrsonality in the end.

It was funny in parts, although there was no cat as such in this story until the very end, so I'll check out book 2 and see if that's changed in March when the audio version is released.

There are three books so far in the series, and it would be nice if there more in the future.

Would I recommend to mew?  Yes, if you love the cozy mystery vibe, I can't see why mew wouldn't enjoy this series.

  1. I missed yo last week, but what an honor to host the History Society. I don't read a lot of cozies, but I have read this one and liked it. XO

  2. So glad the book turned out into a lovely read, Amber. It needs a lot of persistance when a book doesn't "grab"you. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞

  3. I am glad the book got better for you as you read along, Amber. It was a big honour of the M.C.H.S. to use your library, and even more so to want to use it again and pay you for it.

  4. Great review sweet Amber, thanks for telling us about it!

  5. As always, Amber, your book review is terrific!

  6. I don't know how your PA ... err ... I mean you find the time to read! I gave up reading anything but blogs a couple years ago. I do miss it.

  7. Yes indeed, we don't get nearly enough time to READ.

  8. Great you guys let the village use your library, Amber, but do make sure you keep tabs on who's using it else you'll have the young mums and kittens moving in and we all know what that will mean! Yup cream covered sticky pawpads over all your books! ;) Mol

  9. Reading in greneral seems to be coming a lost art/pastime. Sadly enough.

    Including the petcretary, she used to gobble up books and othe r materail, but now like others she hardly has time to read...event the newspaper gets put on the back burner.

    That sounds like a charming book:)
