Book Review-CATastrophic Connections: A Psycho Cat and the Landlady Mystery Book 1-Joyce Ann Brown

Thursday, January 24, 2019

This is a cozy mystery that I think everyone will enjoy. When Adrianna is framed for stealing money from the company she works for--her family is sure she is innocent--but where is she? Her cat was left at home--Adrianna's Dad was supposed to come and take care of him--he forgot. Well the cat started yowling loud enough that a neighbor called Beth to lodge a complaint--not only Adrianna's aunt but also her landlady.

The whole family was worried --Beth started to try and track her down--they had to find her to exonerate her! She was found and brought back to the US. Then one of her friends was murdered---Adrianna was a suspect.

Meanwhile Psycho, the cat, was staying with Beth and her husband. He was a handful but really very loving at the same time--reminds me of my cat!

This book had lots of interesting characters and the plot thickens as you read along. I read it in one sitting--I just had to know what eventually happened! I will definitely be reading more of this series!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Want a good cozy mystery, where a cat plays an important part in a realistic fashion? Then, CATastrophic Connections is what you’re looking for. This is first and foremost a good mystery. The characters ring true--not super-heroes, but ordinary people trying to solve two crimes before more people become victims. I thoroughly enjoyed it - and so will you. –Jim Callen, author of Cleansed by Fire

When Psycho Cat yowls, Beth responds. Adrianna, her niece has disappeared. She and her no-nonsense sister question Adrianna's associates. They discover that the police suspect the young woman of embezzling a huge sum of money from the Kansas City construction company where she works.

Believing Adrianna has been framed, Beth finds clues which lead her to the U.S. Virgin Islands. After a series of bizarre detours, she finds her niece at a spectacular island hideaway. Back home, Adrianna is accused of murder.

The award-winning story is the first in the Psycho Cat and the Landlady Mystery series. Furtive Investigation is the second, and Nine Lifelines is the third.
