Sunday Salon: SLEIGHT OF PAW by Sofie Kelly

Another week has flown by and it’s time to once again gather for Sunday Salon where we talk about books we’ve enjoyed.

The book I have to share with you today is a cozy murder mystery with a touch of paranormal, tons of fun, and two adorable cats.

SLEIGHT OF PAW by Sofie Kelly

If you’re a cat lover, what could be more fun than having two furry9780451234537 felines with magical abilities?

Librarian Kathleen ‘Kath’ Paulson first thought her mind was playing tricks on her when Owen and Hercules followed her home. She soon realized Hercules really could walk through walls and Owen could turn invisible.

The cats unique abilities comes in handy when retired school teacher Agatha Shepherd is found murdered. Kath’s friend, Ruby, is arrested for the murder. It’s up to the magical cats and Kath to track down the real killer.

SLEIGHT OF PAW is a whimsical cozy mystery that’s a fun read from beginning to end. Author Sofie Kelly has created lovable characters that will entertain you while keeping you guessing who the real killer is.

This is the second installment in the Magical Cats Mystery series, but is a stand alone book. The first installment in the series is CURIOSITY THRILLED THE CAT.
