Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #21 featuring The No 2 Feline Detective Agency

Welcome To

With Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Wunderpurr greetings fellow book lovers

Welcome to another Wurdy Wednesday in the Library and many apologies fur not being here last week as this post was sceduled fur last Wednesday, so the video's below are from before Basil got poorly.

*    *    *

Well my week was ok until four of us decided to all get on the playstation together and then Parsley really, really spoiled my mood!

As mew can tell I was not impressed and so aftur that I went into my library to seek solace amongst my books, at least they don't do smacky paws... I had this to say:


Then I decided to go and find the P.A., she always cheers me up and this time was no exception, I was pole dancing! MOL

Mew can't believe how exerting it is, I was worn aftur about 23.5 seconds...

Well aftur that purrformance I think it's time we move swiftly on to this weeks book pick.

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

The No 2 Feline Detective Agency

(The No.2 Feline Detective Series) 

(Hettie Bagshot Mystery)


Mandy Morton

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

Hettie Bagshot has bitten off more than any cat could chew. As soon as she launches her No. 2 Feline Detective Agency, she's bucketed into a case: Furcross, home for slightly older cats, has a nasty spate of bodysnatching, and three of the residents have been stolen from their graves.Hettie and her sidekick, Tilly, set out to reveal the terrible truth. Is Nurse Mogadon involved in a deadly game?

*    *    *

Oh I really enjoyed this book, it was fab as its set in a total wurld of cats, featuring Hettie who has just opened a detective agency and her furry furst case is trying to find out what happened to three newly deceased and buried former patrons of the Furcross Home for Slightly Older Cats.   It has some really fun narrative and the plot is excellent, letting the characters purrsonalities shine.   

It's a little more unusual than previous cozy mysteries, but I loved the quirkiness of it and Hettie is a rather comical kitty.  As the story unfolds it's really hard to determine 'who done it'  and with a few comedic mishaps and blunders along the way it remains highly entertaining all the way through.

Paperback copy: 272 pages

I do hope mew enjoy this novel and if mew've read it already, tell me did mew like it?

And furry quickly in other news, as I was sadly not here last week, the pawesome kitties at have a give-away happening right now with Basil's book as the prize, so if mew'd like to get your mittens on a free copy, just head offur and enter.

Great news that the Florida Furkids have taken delivery of the Time Travelling Bobble Hat and mew can see all their amazing pictures by clicking their link above and if mew'd like to join in the fun do let us know.

Just before I go, Basil is getting better slowly and he's nearly finished his final course of meds and is back at the vet on Friday morning for another check-up.  At his visit on Monday, the vet was furry purrleased with his progress. Many thanks, kitty kisses and nose bumps fur all your kind support and get well wishes, it made all the difference, and even the P.A. is a lot less snotty! [But don't tell her I said that!!! MOL]

Sadly it's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and don't furget to stop by tomorrow fur Basil's Brain Training!

Happy reading or listening
