Hello gorgeous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

Thank mew for joining me in the stacks today, and actually I am feeling quite chillaxed this week as I plan the final few books I'm reviewing before I take my summer jolly's.

This year I've decided to review until the end of June, so mew've got me for another month yet as normally I finish at the end of May.

Aren't mew lucky? MOL

Anyhoo let's get on with this week's review as it is so long overdue. In fact, I should have done it a couple of years ago.

And just before we get started, I'd also like to say

It's his 80th Birthday today! WOOOO HOOOOO!

Today the P.A. is also joining in Friday Fill-ins Blog Hop with the pawesome 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.
1. __________________________ was a pleasant surprise,
2. ___________________________ was a not so pleasant surprise.
3. I can’t help but _________ when _________.
4. I wish people would stop asking me _________.

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

1. Finding out the blog was still the #2 UK Pet Blog again from Vuelio for 2022 was a pleasant surprise.

2. Falling through the ceiling was a not so pleasant surprise.

3. I can’t help but laugh when Melvyn asks for his favourite toy at 8pm every night. He's like clockwork!

4. I wish certain people would stop asking me how to fix everything. For context, I'm quite good at problem-solving, finding solutions and fixing stuff, and I've now got someone who would like me to solve a load more problems/issues, and I get a bit tired of it and feel like saying, pay me, and I'll do it, and not just to expect everything for free.

A Mew To A Kill


Leighann Dobbs

       Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

When the ghost of a murder victim appears in Last Chance Books, middle-aged bookstore owner, Willa Chance, must find the ghost's killer or risk being haunted with its unwanted advice forever.

Too bad the ghost suffers from amnesia and only has a few scant clues as to the identity of the killer. That's okay, though, because Willa has a pretty good idea who did it ... until her investigation turns up additional suspects with curious motives.

Meanwhile her cat, Pandora, is on the hunt for a mystical kitten that the cats of Mystic Notch must bring into the fold before the kitten is enticed to the side of evil by a powerful foe.

I've reviewed 5 other books in the Mystic Notch Cozy series so far and here are the links:

Ghostly Paws  Book 1

 A Spirited Tail   Book 2

A Mew to a Kill Book 3 (today's review)

Paws and Effect Book 4

Probable Paws   Book 5

Claw and Order Book 8

There are eight books available; I'm not sure if there's going to be any more in the series at this point, though I do remain hopeful. And just to keep mew in the loop, I am reviewing book 4 next week and book 8 will be my first review in June, as I'm determined to complete the series before my summer sabbatical.

So what did I think about book 3? 

Do mew need to even ask? I love this series, and the plot and storyline in this one are really good; it's such easy listening or reading as the structure is so well woven as everything is revealed as the story culminates to the final crescendo.

I also like how the characters are more like old friends, as the more you read, the more invested you become in the series, and at the end of each book mew feel satisfied with the outcome and conclusion, so it's a win.

Another TOP PAW read from Leighann Dobbs, and I really hope she continues the series.
