Book Review-Familiar Trouble (Familiar Legacy Book 1)-Carolyn Haines

Monday, December 18, 2017

Trouble is an extraordinary cat--he takes after his Dad! He is also bound and determined to take care of his humanoid or as he sometimes refers to Tammy as his biped. Life was pretty quiet until Tammy decided to borrow a friend's telescope and go star gazing up at the crater. Then the bodies start--Trouble is worried and knows he has to figure out who this killer is. I will say this cat is very discerning and knows who to trust and who should be ATTACKED with all claws extended!

This will keep you guessing until the end. I totally enjoyed this novel and will follow Trouble on some of his other adventures!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

BLOOD IS THICKER... Sometimes a unique talent is inherited—and such is the case for Trouble, son of Familiar the black cat detective. Trouble’s rather indolent life in the sleepy town of Wetumpka, Alabama is upended when a serial killer arrives on the scene. Trouble begins to apply the skills he learned from his dad and his hero, Sherlock Holmes.

When local bookseller Tammy Lynn is attacked at the site of an impact crater, Trouble realizes he must protect his human and solve the mystery of the Silk Stocking Killer.

Aiden Waters, a local deputy, has tracked the SSK to Wetumpka. Since his wife’s murder, Aiden won’t risk romance, but when Tammy is endangered, everything changes. Especially their hearts.

This sounds like quite the interesting mystery. Cats with powers and a silk stocking killer oh I can't forget the deputy with murder in his past, poor man. When Love is involved murders are solved - usually!
