Sinossi

Small-town librarian Kathleen Paulson never wanted to be the crazy cat lady. But after Owen and Hercules followed her home, she realized her mind wasn't playing tricks on her-her cats have magical abilities.

When the body of elderly do-gooder Agatha Shepherd is found near Kath's favorite local café, she knows Owen's talent for turning invisible and Hercules's ability to walk through walls will give the felines access to clues Kath couldn't get without arousing suspicion. Someone is hiding some dark secrets-and it will take a bit of furtive investigating to catch the cold-hearted killer.

HASH(0x9c3f89cc) su 5 stelle Less "Cat Magic" this time around 4 ottobre 2011
Di Avid Mystery Reader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As one of the other reviewers said, this 2nd outing for this author did not have the "cat magic" that the first one did. Indeed, that was one of the things I noticed right off, the cats took a backseat to the human interactions this time. I think, since this is a "magical cats" novel that the reader expects this aspect of the book to be front and center. The other aspect of this book that really bothered me (and you have to realize that I am a teacher and grade writing all the time) were the number of writing errors in this book. Where were the editors when this work was being read before publishing? There were words (especially prepositions and pronouns) that were missing, there were added words that should not have been in the sentence including duplication of words. I realize the problems with drafts of work but really, it was like no one edited this work at all. I blame the publisher but if it were my work, with my name on it, I would have scrutinized it better before going to print. This aspect took the "magic" of the read away from the story. The story itself was OK but not nearly as exciting as the first novel in the series.

HASH(0x9c3f8c24) su 5 stelle precious cozy 7 settembre 2011
Di Un cliente - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Owen and Hercules adopted the new Mayville Heights, Minnesota librarian Kathleen Paulson as their human crazy cay lady owner. Kathleen, now struggling with her first tundra winter, came to town after a lover's spat in which he left and returned two weeks later with a wife. She had not planned to stay, but her feline family has her thinking of permanent residency.

Retired schoolteacher Agatha Shepherd is found murdered in the ally near Eric's Place restaurant. Ruby who found the body is arrested as circumstantial evidence points towards her as the culprit. Kath does not buy her friend as the killer because Ruby loved Agatha who changed her life around from juvenile delinquent to model citizen changing her hair color every two weeks. Although she prefers to stay out of sleuthing after the perilous adventures in Curiosity Thrilled the Cat, she uncovers contrary evidence that points elsewhere due to her feline partners. The trio risks their lives to insure the real killer is placed in jail.

The two cats with their paranormal powers make Sleight of Paw a precious cozy with their telepathic communication and deep need to protect their Kath. Their human pet has adapted nicely to the Burl Ives picture postcard town as she has made good friends (and not just the cats) and is falling in love with a local detective though she keeps her distance having been burned once. The whodunit is super as there are several suspects including friends who could be the killer as the amateur sleuth and her two feline companions investigate the homicide of a highly regarded former teacher.

HASH(0x9c3f8fa8) su 5 stelle This cozy mystery is great weekend reading 18 settembre 2011
Di Esther Schindler - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Sometimes, you just need someone to tell you a story. It's been a tough week at work, and the deadlines loom, and your brain is tired. Slight of Paw is just what the doctor ordered.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Curiosity Thrilled the Cat, in which librarian Kathleen Paulson came to small town life and was adopted by two cats with -- it seems -- rather useful superpowers. At least, the cats helped her solve a mystery, even if catnip toys were destroyed in the process.

This follow-up is just as good... if not better.

In this book, which takes place about six months later, Kathleen has settled into small-town life, and has gotten to know Mayville Heights' residents. When an older woman dies right outside the town's cafe, something doesn't seem quite right -- particularly when the police arrest a suspect who, Kathleen is positive, could not *possibly* be guilty.

Slight of Paw has all the elements of a charming cozy mystery: a believable protagonist, a plausible reason for an amateur to get involved, and likeable secondary characters. I'm really getting to appreciate Roma and Maggie, and it's nice that the author takes it slow with the not-quite-love-interest detective. And, of course, the cats, who might have a few uncatlike characteristics but are undoubtedly kitties; no cat lover could resist them.

Unlike a lot of such books, you don't have to read the first book in the series to understand what's happening in this one. I think you'd enjoy it more if you did, but the characters are adequately introduced.

This is not deep literature. It's a quick read when you want something light to distract you from the rest of the world. But for that, it's spot on.

HASH(0x9c3f8f9c) su 5 stelle LOVED IT!!!!!! Fun Series!! 14 settembre 2011
Di Lori Caswell/Dollycas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Agatha Shepherd was an educator and over the years she helped almost everyone in town in one way or another. When she is found dead outside a local cafe people are certainly shocked. Who would do this and why???

Kathleen hopes that with the help of her feline friends and maybe a little assistance from a handsome detective she may find the answers. Of course having a cat that can walk through closed doors and another that can become invisible at will makes Kathleen investigation a little easier as long as no one notices their cute little tricks. You won't believe the secrets a cat can cough up.

My Thoughts
Cats are so much fun and they convey so much with a flick of the tail, a certain meow, or a twitch of the ear. Magical cats are even more special. It's difficult enough to write for people, there is a special place in my heart for authors that write for animals. All the characters are well written in this story. The mystery is also extremely well written with many suspects and motives. The very first chapter had me laughing out loud and the humor in continually interspersed throughout the story. The friendships Kathleen has made in Minnesota are going to be lifelong and I am sure one special one will continue to develop making it very hard to leave when her short term contract with the library is complete. I plan to enjoy many more trips to Mayville Heights!
