Book Review-April Yellow Moon: A Cat Collier Mystery-Carol Ann Kauffman

Monday, December 13, 2021

I truly enjoy reading this clean series--and there really is a continuation so if you are smart (not like me) you will read them in order!! I truly think you will enjoy them!

Cat Collier is finally living with her boyfriend-but is holding on to her old tiny apartment. She is totally against getting married--her boyfriend wants to get married. This causes a few problems and when he goes storming off--of course he does come back all apologetic. They do compromise in a way eventually--after Cat gets in a bit of trouble with a case she is working--she is a PI and she isn't about to give that up either!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

In this fourth installment in the Cat Collier Short Story Mystery Series, a dear, old friend comes up missing and Cat Collier must scramble to find her before it's too late. A powerful enemy resurfaces and claims responsibility for a personal attack on Cat's family. Nola relives Trent's murder. Carter proposes...again.

Mary Catherine Collier, also known as Cat, started at the bottom of the ladder in the newspaper business. Literally the bottom. She wrote obituaries in the basement of the Heaton Valley Herald in a small town in northeastern Ohio.

But what she really wanted to do with her life was open her own investigation service business. The Cat Collier mysteries have been called a cross between Nancy Drew and Mike Hammer. As the author of the now nine-book series, I've always thought her more as a cross between Jessica Fletcher and Jessica Jones.

The Cat Collier Mysteries are written as a serial series. It is best if you beginning with January Black Ice. Characters from the first book pop up in others. Problems... grow. These books are short, easy reads. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I've enjoyed writing them. I am working on October Masquerade now and hope to have it out to you by the end of 2021, leaving November Chill and December Wish for 2022.
