Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #8 featuring Probable Paws

Welcome to 

The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Pawesome greetings fellow bibliocats

Hi y'all, Amber here *waves paw most daintily*

Sorry I was trying my southern accent! MOL [I've been reading Gone with the Wind and got a little carried away - but I think I'd make a lovely southern-belle].

Well here we are again on another beautiful Wednesday, the sun is shining, the clouds are supurr fluffy and there's even a lovely breeze too, which is rather nice when the library door is open into the courtyard.

I nearly wasn't here again today and it was touch and go fur Tuesday Tails too.  Let me explain, the P.A. can be a little accident-prone from time to time [putting it mildly] she has the incredible ability to trip up on a flat surface, walk into things, fall up stairs and a whole host of other stuff, seriously she can be a menace to herself, [we're actually looking fur a bubble-wrap-cocoon fur her].  

This is the sequence of events;  Friday evening she's putting a metal platform ladder away and it fell on her right arm and left ankle resulting in a lump & bruise in both places, Saturday she was attacked by roses, which looked liked we'd attacked her left arm and on Sunday, when planting a new crop of runner beans, she couldn't get the last few out of the glass they'd been soaking in.  So she took her gloves off and poked the beans with a little stick, that didn't wurk, then she turned the glass upside and tapped it lightly [yeah right!!!] on the wooden sleeper.  Well, mew know what I'm going to say next. It broke. Just as she was about to pick up the shattered pieces with bare hands, her inner voice told her to put on her thick gardening gloves.

She did, but unfortunately, and I mean so unlucky, a shard of glass had fallen into her right glove.  So as she began to pull the glove on, well mew can imagine.  The good news is it wasn't as bad as it could have been, the bad news is she cut two knuckles and punctured one of the tiny veins in the top of her finger, so hasn't been able to bend it for a couple of days, but it seems ok now.  

We were watching her type one-handed all Monday evening getting Fast, Furry & Dangerous done and to be honest, we actually felt sorry fur her fur like five minutes until we discovered a new jar of Kong uber strong catnip! MOL MOL

FYI she survived and is on the mend, [we do care really] but now it's time fur me to share this weeks literary offuring with mew, aftur all that's why we're here.

This week on Book Reviews with Amber, I'm sharing:

Probable Paws

Mystic Notch Cozy Mystery Series Book 5


Leighann Dobbs

Mew may remember that I reviewed Ghostly Paws on my furst effur Biblio Wednesday, well this one is number 5 of the Cozy Notch Series.  Admittedly I haven't reviewed books 2-4 but as I'm here with #5 mew know it must be a most excellent series. 

I have to say that this series gets better and better and in each book Pandora the cat reveals a little more about the true purpose of the Mystic Notch Cats and their valiant efforts to thwart the seeping evil that keeps threatening their little town.  

In this novel it is revealed that Willa's on-off cop boyfriend, Striker, also has the ability to see ghosts, but not on the same plane as Willa's ghostly apparitions appear which makes fur quite a comical read, especially when Pandora can see ghosts on all planes, howeffur neither Willa or Striker are willing to admit their gifts to each other... yet!

This story revolves around Betty's Recipe Book, which is really a book of magic.  Both Willa and Striker are searching fur it independently of each other, meanwhile there are several rather unpleasant peeps aftur it too, who can be trusted and who are the evil ones?

Mew'll have to read it to find out! MOL

I can safely say this is my newest favourite cats series and can't wait fur the next one.

Hardback copy: 306 pages long
