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

Mew'll neffur believe what happened this week, there I was minding my own business [well sort of] in the library when Pandora hurtled through the door yelling in her odd, little foreign accent. "Amber! Amber! Amber!" [It actually sounded like AMM-BEARE - really it did!]


I peered at her from my rather toasty sofa, [it now has a heated pad under my cream rug] as I replied. "Yes Pandora, how may I help mew?"

"The BBHQ Catmas cards 'ave arrived!" she beamed at me and dropped a box on the floor. "I just spoke to Smooch, and he said that it vas Parsley's turn to send them out."

I nodded, knowing exactly where this was going. "Uhuh!"

"So I vent to find Parsley, and he said that it vas Fudge's turn to send them out!" she continued.

"Uhuh!" I replied as my eyes narrowed by the second.

"And Fudge said it vas my turn to send them out," she said. "But I don't 'ave any addresses, and as mew're the most supurr organised I thought that mew could send them out as they're going all offur the wurld and..."

I waved a paw to silence her, "And mew thought muggins Amber would send them out?"

She nodded at me most enthusiastically and said. "Of course, that is it exactly!" 

"UHUH!" I replied through clenched teeth. Why am I always the one who gets these jobs? then suddenly I had a brain-wave.  "Go find the P.A., she's really, really busy at the moment and they say, if mew want a job done ask a busy purrson, she's your gal fur sure... now beetle off because I'm reading!" 



And my top tip fur all mew kitties this week, is: 

DELEGATE, DELEGATE AND DELEGATE SOME MORE! MOL

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book.

This week I'm sharing not one but three books...

Here's the book blurb:

Purrfect Murder: Volume 1


There’s something special about Max. He may look like your regular ginger flabby tabby, but unlike most tabbies, he can actually communicate with his human, reporter for the Hampton Cove Gazette Odelia Poole. Max takes a keen interest in the goings-on in their small town, by snooping around with his best friends Dooley, a not-too-bright ragamuffin, and Harriet, a gorgeous white Persian. Their regular visits to the police station, the barbershop and the doctor’s office provide them with those precious and exclusive scoops that have made Odelia the number one reporter in town. But when suddenly the body of a bestselling writer is discovered buried in the last Long Island outhouse, and a new policeman arrives in town to solve the murder, it looks like things are about to change in Hampton Cove. Detective Chase Kingsley doesn’t take kindly to nosy reporters like Odelia snooping around his crime scene or interviewing his suspects. And to make matters worse, he’s got a cat of his own in Brutus, a buff, black bully, who, just like his owner, likes to lay down the law. Soon Brutus isn’t just restricting access to the police station, but he’s putting the moves on Harriet, breaking up the band. Now it’s all Odelia, Max and Dooley can do to try and solve the murder, in spite of Detective Kingsley’s and Brutus’s protestations, and show the overbearing cop and his bullyragging feline how things are done in Hampton Cove. Will Odelia find the killer before Detective Kingsley does? And will Max prevent Brutus from moving in on his territory and taking over the town? Find out in Purrfect Murder, the first book in the new Mysteries of Max series.

Purrfectly Deadly: Volume 2

When famous eighties pop star John Paul George is found floating face down in his pool, Hampton Cove’s premier sleuthing tabby Max and his feline friends are on the case. Soon they’re chasing leads and following clues, helping their human Odelia Poole, reporter for the Hampton Cove Gazette, solve the murder. Meanwhile, new cop in town Chase Kingsley has his own problems to deal with. An old scandal threatens to get him kicked off the force. And even though Odelia and Chase don’t always see eye to eye, she decides to help him clear his name, even if it means keeping Chase’s cat Brutus, Max’s self-declared nemesis, in town. Soon Max is up to his whiskers in drug dealers, boy toys, disgruntled ex-wives and even more drug dealers, all while competing with Brutus for the title of Hampton Cove’s one and only ‘true detective.’ Will the feline sleuths save the day? And will they finally get a taste of John Paul George’s famous cat pâté? Find out in Purrfectly Deadly, the second book in the humorous cat mystery series The Mysteries of Max.

Purrfect Revenge: Volume 3

Blorange tabby Max and ragamuffin Dooley are on the case again. This time a world-famous reality star has been found murdered in her own bed, and it looks like the crime just might be terror-related. The Kenspeckles, stars of the well-known reality show Keeping Up with the Kenspeckles, are in town to film a new season of their show, so the case soon turns into a complete media circus, with the Kenspeckles insisting the entire investigation is filmed for their show. Odelia Poole, Hampton Cove’s premier reporter, teams up with Detective Chase Kingsley to catch the killer, but with cameras filming their every move, and every Kenspeckle a suspect, they’re not making a lot of progress. Good thing Odelia’s cats Max and Dooley can sneak around undetected, tracking leads and hunting clues. But first they have to pacify Shana’s French Bulldog Kane, who just might be in possession of the clue that breaks the case. And they have to outsmart Chase’s black tabby Brutus, who has his own reasons to find the killer. Will Max and Dooley solve the case? Or will Brutus beat them to it? And will Dooley finally get to first tail with Harriet? Find out in Purrfect Revenge, the third installment in the funny cat mystery series The Mysteries of Max.

I've been meaning to share these fur a while, but as I've had an influx of books from publishers, these have had to wait, but today I finally get to share them with mew - woo hoo! 

So what did I think? I actually loved this series, it's witty, the characters are fun, the cats are really cute, there's plenty of conflict, action. And the plot, twists and turns like a roller-coaster keeping mew turning those pages.

Each book is really fun, and there are echoes to real-life famous peeps in the most tongue-in-cheek way, mew'll recognize exactly what I'm saying from the book blurb, but obviously I can't point out the obvious! MOL 

There are 7 books in total, so I've got another 4 to get my mittens on and I really can't wait, as I'm saving them fur my Catmas break.

If mew asked me who my favourite kitty is at the end of book 3, I'd have to say it's Brutus, who's rather misunderstood and deep down is a real softy, but mew know I won't say anymore than that, as I've already spoilerized it and mew know how much I hate that! MOL

I think this is a really great series and if mew love a kitty cozy mystery then these will be right up your alley!
