*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library.

Sadly the P.A. is still snotty and unwell, so today's post is a bare-bones affair.

But so mew don't feel too cheated, here's a gorgeous picture of yours truly! MOL

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book before the P.A. sneezes all offur me again, EEEEEWWWWWWWW!!!!

This week I'm sharing

A Hiss-Tory of Magic

 Wonder Cats Mystery Book 1


Harper Lin

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

Cath Greenstone, her cousin Bea, and her hippie aunt Astrid live in Wonder Falls, a small town near the mystical Niagara Falls. They run the Brew-Ha-Ha café, and naturally, they’re witches hiding in plain sight along with their three magical cats, Treacle, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallow. 

When Brew-Ha-Ha's baker is burnt to a crisp, along with their beloved café, Aunt Astrid lets out a big family secret: a powerful spell book, a Greenstone heirloom from the Salem days, has been stolen from its secret hiding spot in the café. If it’s fallen into the wrong hands, black magic could destroy not only Wonder Falls but the world. 


3 cats, 3 witches, an entire cast of dubious characters and red herrings galore, this book has it all.

A great start to a new paranormal, kitty cozy mystery series.

The kitties have a decent role, which mew know is always a huge plus fur me, because if there are no cats, it's no fun! MOL  They are a diverse bunch too which is nice.

The plot hurtles along and has some nice twists and turns. Though the town cop, is as always a bit of a schmuck to start with - rather cliched - hence the 4 stars this week, but apart from that I really enjoyed it and will definitely be trying the next one in the series. and there's 9 more to go at, so mew know that will purrlease me immensely! MOL

Would I recommend it to mew, yes I would!
