Hello gorgeous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

Thank mew for joining me in the stacks today, and if mew were here for our Midweek News Round-Up, mew'll know that it's still pretty cold in Mewton-Clawson this week. 

So I got myself in front of the fire, to get some massive warms happening and then Fudge came racing in with Melvyn and they proceeded to fling rather a lot of toys around the sitting room.

Some of which ended up within reach of my deadly murder mittens. So I dutifully gave the large, green pom pom a damn good seeing to and left its woolley entrails all over the rug as evidence.

The P.A. was not impressed with my wanton destruction and said, "Amber, it took me ages to make that fluffy pom pom!" This bold declaration was followed by a really loud TUT, yes she actually TUTTED me! I know, I can't quite believe either, the utter nerve of it. 

So I murdered the pom pom some more when she left the room! MOL 

And the moral of the story, never TUT me.

1. I waste a lot of time _________.

2. At this very moment, I'm craving _________.

3. Don't _________ until you _________.

4. _________ makes life interesting.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. I waste a lot of time thinking about stuff; whether that be plot lines, blog posts, books, works in progress, to-do lists etc... in fact it could be anything. I don't think it's a waste of time to think about think about stuff, though some peeps might disagree with me! LOL 

2. At this very moment, I'm craving treacle pudding with custard.

3. Don't run until you can walk.

4. Living with 6 cats makes life interesting.

Cat Got Your Cash

The Kitty Couture Mysteries, Book 2


Julie Chase

       Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

Lacy Marie Crocker's whimsical pet couture has gained a following in New Orleans' cozy Garden District, and word of mouth has travelled all the way to her favourite fashion designer, Annie Lane. Lacy is thrilled when Annie schedules a private session at her home to discuss a companion line for her evening wear, but when Lacy arrives for the appointment, she enters the kitchen to two mewling Siamese cats - and one very dead Annie.

Lacy takes the kittens home to care for them until they can be properly claimed by Annie's family or friends, but after a busy day of work, she returns home to find them missing. And when Lacy learns the cats are set to inherit Annie's fortune, she begins to wonder if the killer was after the kittens all along.

I reviewed book one in this series way, way back in 2019, and after just reading my post, I realise I said I'd review this book sooner! OOPS! MOL 

Anyhoo, better late than never as obviously other books took priority, but here we are today.

I did prefer this to the first one, as in the former I was expecting more cat action, but there was very little, although it was an enjoyable book. In this one, we barely get out of the starting gates, and there are cats present, so a huge plus. Although they are not talking cats, they're just cat cats!

I think the author has really got in her stride with this book. The plot is nicely twisty, the characters and setting really begin to flourish, and it has a touch of comedy. It's a proper feel-good cozy mystery, and I will certainly be listening to the rest of the series much sooner.

There are four available in the series right now, and if mew're an Audible customer, they are all included for free within your membership on the UK site. I'm not sure about other territories but do check as they are well worth listening to, especially for free.

If mew love a cosy mystery, this is for mew, as I'm sure mew'll enjoy it.

I really hope mew enjoy the book as much as I did if mew decide to read it.

It's time for me to say BFN or bye-for-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and I'll be back next week with another specially paw-picked book just for mew, and don't forget that all my previous reviews can be found on my Book Review page.

Until next time...

Keep calm and read more books

  1. Murdering for inheritance is a dastardly thing. This sounds a fab read, just the sort of cosy we like.

  2. You always have interesting reads to about!!
    That poor pom-pom! LOL!

  3. Amber, good job on thrashing that green pom pom.

  4. I'll bet the warm fire feels good sweet Amber and that was a mighty fine book review! Looks like the P.A. drew a blank on her fill-in answers MOL!

  5. Murder mittens did a fine job on that toy. Well done.

    You do the very best book reviews, Amber. Sounds like a great review.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Scritches all around and a big hug to mom. ♥

  6. Glad you showed that pom pom who the boss is Amber. I am sorry I didn't have the fill-ins listed this week. Lorianne has them on her blog as I am still taking time off after losing my Sammy. I will be back for next week though. That sounds like a good book, nice review.XO

  7. You definitely have murder mittens! Great book reviews! Enjoy your weekend!

  8. That sounds like a good book, I might check it out. You did an excellent job on that pom pom! Maybe the P.A. should keep her toys away from your murder mitts if she wants to keep them in pristine condition. Hahaha! Have a good weekend!

  9. Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect weekend. ♥

  10. Oh my, Amber, you made short work of that pom pom! Good book review, that sounds like an interesting book!

  11. You sure taught her a lesson! OMC, I think I have this book somewhere and never read it!

  12. Ahhh, you've been "tutted?!" No!

    I have to agree with you...I spend a lot of time "writing in my head!" That's not wasted though, right?!

    I always said life with 5 Huskies and 2 adopted kitties was interesting (crazy, wild, fun, and wonderful)...6 cats must be about the same! (Especially if there are a lot of pom poms around!)

    Thanks so much for joining in our #FlashbackFriday blog hop! Hope to see you again!
