Book Review-The Mad Catter (Whales and Tails#2)-Kathi Daley

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Whew--now I feel a bit better--I know who poisoned Maggie and who helped with another dastardly plan from book #1 in this delightful series! I already have book # 3 in this series so the cliff hanger at the end of this book, while bothering me--at least I know I can find out what happened relatively quickly! These books are quick reads for me and I find myself reading them in one session.

Cody, the ex from Cait's past-who broke her heart by joining the navy then returned 10 years later, is slowly making his way into Cait's heart, or is he? Alice, a beautiful white cat, shows up at Cait's door and it appears she is going to try and help Cait solve the mysteries surrounding them. Cody has decided to stay and live with old Mr. Parsons. He is going to try to put the old newspaper office back in shape and start a brand new newspaper--so what more could go wrong--guess we'll all have to read book #3 to find out.

Hmmm, I wonder what secrets Alice will help to reveal. Sounds good!

Not really my kind of book but it seems like it could be interesting for those into mysteries. Really neat idea though!

Scott said...

Sounds like a purrfect (see what I did there?) title for our pre-teen. She loves cats, but is allergic to them.
