The first novel in a frisky new mystery series set in a small New England town, where an unlikely citizen is called in to solve the purrfect crime. . .

Maddie James has arrived in Daybreak Island, just off the coast of Massachusetts, eager to settle down and start her own business—and maybe even fall in love. When a stray orange tabby pounces into her life, she’s inspired to open a cat café. But little does Maddie know that she’s in for something a lot more catastrophic when her new furry companion finds the dead body of the town bully. Now all eyes are on Maddie: Who is this crazy cat-whisperer lady who’s come to town? If pet-hair-maintenance and crime-fighting weren’t keeping her busy enough, Maddie now has not one but two eligible bachelors who think she’s the cat’s pajamas . . . and will do anything to win her heart. But how can she even think about happily-ever-after while a killer remains on the loose—and on her path?

My Thoughts

I was absolutely delighted to curl up and read Cat About Town by Cate Conte. This is the first book in the new Cat Cafe mystery series, and boy did the author deliver. This cozy mystery had everything I love: a great mystery, a main character I liked, and a cat who was full of personality.

If you are a mystery lover and a cat lover, you will absolutely love this story as much as I did. This mystery kept me guessing. With an unsavory character as the victim, there was no shortage of suspects to keep me wondering who was guilty. JJ the cat stole the show. He was a great addition to the story. I like the hint of romance possibilities in this book as well.

This fun mystery starts off running and had me intrigued from the beginning. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.
