Hello furbulous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

Thank mew for joining me in the stacks today, and it's the coronation weekend here in the U.K., we're getting a new monarch crowned tomorrow, hence the reason for all the bunting and flags, plus my crown which I find most fetching and I think I should wear one all the time, well if they made a lightweight version! MOL  And we even made a new coronation blog header just for the occasion, plus we put bunting up outside BBHQ.

It's strange that we haven't seen as much bunting about locally as there was for the Queen's Jubilee last year, but perhaps a lot of peeps will put it up today, or not.

Amber's Book Reviews #241 ©BionicBasil® Amber's Got Bed Fur Again

I'm sorry about my bed-fur again today, and the speck of crunch/kibble stuck to my whiskers, but mew know sometimes it's just nice not to care so much, as it is really tiring being so purrfect all the time! MOL

And if mew were here last week, and read about Melvyn putting a book in the wrong place, well let me just tell mew, I'm investigating that total travesty of poor librianship and have installed a new A.I. watch system to see if he does it again.

Well, I can't have my apprentice fluffing up all my hardwork, and if he gets into bad habits now, there'll be no hope for the library in the future with that kind of lackadaisy attitude. 

I thought Melvyn was the cat for the job, but right now I am reflecting on my decision, watch this space as Melvyn might get fired.

Amber's Book Reviews #241 What Are We Reading This Week ©BionicBasil® Hairless Harassment by Molly Fitz

Hairless Harassment

Pet Whisperer P.I. Book 3


      Molly Fitz    

       Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

I never signed up to be a private investigator with a snarky, talking cat for a partner, but there's no backing down now. Especially considering a prominent politician was murdered pretty much right in my backyard.

The only witnesses were the senator's two hairless cats, Jacques and Jillianne. Normally pets want to help us solve their owner's murders, but this time it seems the two devious felines might actually be the ones who committed it…

Surprisingly enough, my own partner in crime, Octo-Cat, actually wants to help this time, but he can barely understand our two prime suspects because of their strange Sphynx accents. And I thought speaking tabby was hard!

I reviewed book one in the Pet Whisperer series, back in March, click here to catch up if mew missed it, and click here for book 2. I also reviewed another series by Molly Fitz, so if mew want a recap on those, click here to find out more. 

On with the review, so what did I think book three in the series? 

Octo-Cat is on rare form as he and Angie move into his former home; mew'll have to read book one if mew haven't already to get a little more background on Octo-Cat's priviledged life before Angie adopted him.

So, in book three having hardly moved into his former home, Octo-Cat's neighbour is murdered, and the only potential witness's are two Sphynx cats, who he is not too fussed about.

Angie and her feline set about trying to discover who the murderer is, and the list is quite full, as suspects line up one after another as the plot unfolds.

Also, as I progressed with the story the characters grow and develop very well, which is a nice continuation from the previous volumes. The plot unfolds in a timely manner with great pacing and structure, so whether mew're listening to the audio version or reading it, mew'll want to keep listening or turning those pages.

Obviously I'm not going to spoilerize anything for mew, as mew know I don't do that, though I will say I enjoyed book three very much and look forward to book four in the near future, (once I've got down my to-read pile a little more! MOL)  

So far this series has met all my expectations of what a good, highly enjoyable cozy mystery series should be, and if like me, mew like a fun, well written murder mystery, then Molly Fitz is definitely going to fill that brief.

And don't forget if mew get the audio version on Audible, look for books 1 - 3 in a box set, and mew can get the Kindle version in a box set too, which saves a bit of cash if mew buy them this way.

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. Long Live King Charles!
    I'll be watching the festivities from America.
    Amber, we don't worry about a bit of fluff here and there; you look gorgeous!

  2. We think you should give Melvyn another chance😸you never know. Your book for this week sounds very interesting thank you.

  3. Dear Amber, I am a bit smitten by Melvyn, so I hope he does not lose his job. But Lynn loves libraries, so it must be maintained properly. We have sunshine today, so we hope your coronation is sun covered too. We look forward to seeing a bit of it on TV later. I sometimes do not get the chicken crunchies off my whiskers and Lynn must remind me to "finish eating". Precious

  4. You look very regal in your crown, Amber. It sounds like young Melvyn does need to be kept in paw! Another great review, and I do like the sound of Octo-Cat!

  5. I need to get there and peruse the stacks, Amber.

  6. Nice header for the coronation. Excellent review and the series sounds engaging!

  7. We think you look adorable sweet Amber. Those were good fill-in answers and a really good review too. Hey, we'll be up bright and early here to watch all the festivities over your way. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

  8. Some cats don't understand the Dewey Decimal System

  9. Amber, you look beautiful with or without the crown. Excellent review. I need to start reading this series. Thank you to the PA for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I hope you win the lottery. XO

  10. I'm sorry you are having trouble with your assistant, he is young and can learn, he just needs training. Everyone grows up at their own pace.

    You'd look wonderful in a crown all of the time, as you say, if it weren't so heavy.

    The P.A. is wise, cat cuddles are the best.

    I enjoy your book reviews, now if only i had less time working and more time for reading.

    Thank you for joining Feline Friday!

  11. Assistants can be so difficult to train but I'm sure he'll get there in the end, we all have to start somewhere. We unfortunately didn't get to watch the coronation as the parents care alarm went off and mum missed it driving to their house, I expect it'll be on Catch Up when she has the time to look xxx
