Book Review-Knowledge is Power-Debbie De Louise

Friday, November 8, 2019


This is a very different kind of story where a librarian manages to bring her cat back to life only to see him be killed. If the murderer had waited a bit she would have realized that the daughter she lost was also brought back to life-along with a young woman's fiance. As three of them walk away--the story ends--but which three?

In my opinion there a few lessons to be learned from this short novel-but I will let you form your own opinion on that. This is another story that could be read around a campfire late at night!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

On the one-month anniversary of the death of her beloved cat, Librarian Margaret Goodley, uses her excellent research skills to cast a spell to bring Bluebell back to life. Unfortunately, there are unexpected consequences when two other women who have lost their own loved ones on the same day interrupt the ceremony.

About the Author: (from Amazon)


My name is Debbie De Louise. I'm a reference librarian at a public library on Long Island and the award-winning author of the Cobble Cove cozy mystery series. I have a B.A. in English and an MLS in Library Science.

My first novel, a paranormal romance, "Cloudy Rainbow" was written after my beloved cat, Floppy, died from diabetic and liver complications. The book was dedicated to him, and he is featured as a character in it. Cloudy Rainbow was recently reprinted by my publisher with fresh edits, a new cover, and a few updates.

My second novel, the first book of the Cobble Cove mystery series, "A Stone's Throw," is the story of a widowed librarian who visits her husband's hometown and finds a new love with the town's newspaper publisher but also discovers some alarming truths about her husband's death and its connection to the publisher and his family. Along with a variety of characters, there is also a cat and dog who play minor but interesting roles in the novel. The other books in my Cobble Cove series include "Between a Rock and a Hard Place," "Written in Stone," and "Love on the Rocks." I've also published a romantic comedy novella, "When Jack Trumps Ace" and a standalone mystery, "Reason to Die." My latest release is a psychological mystery, "Sea Scope," about a murder at a lighthouse in South Carolina.

I'm a member of International Thriller Writers, Sisters-in-Crime, the Cat Writer's Association, and Long Island Authors Group and have published articles in Cats Magazine and Catnip (Tufts University Veterinary Newsletter). I won the Glamour Puss special award from Hartz Corporation for my Catster.com article, "Brushing your cat for bonding, beauty, and better health," (June, 2016). My short mystery, "Stitches in Time" was published in the Cat Crimes Through Time Anthology, (1999). I have also published several other short stories of various genres in Solstice anthologies. I live on Long Island with my husband, Anthony; daughter, Holly; and our cat, Stripey, Harry, and Hermione.
