    One thought on “Cat Trick: A Magical Cats Mystery”

    1. INTO IT.This actually DOES feel cozy, which not all cozy mysteries do. I just sort of sink into it and don't really look up for air.I REALLY liked that we got to see more of Marcus's viewpoint on everything, specifically that he CAN'T just take Kathleen's word for everything, he has to be able to prove it, and find enough evidence to get the criminal convicted. And he's right. Kathleen doesn't completely trust him to be good at his job. Which he is.(I kind of have a crush on Marcus now. Mmmmmm, [...]

    2. 3.5First, let's get the unpleasant part out of the way. I didn't like two things. Kathleen's reason for poking her nose in yet another police case is one, but since it's part of who she is, I got over it pretty quickly. Next, I didn't like another character and it turned out I was kind of right in the end. Attached to these reasons is another character who didn't deserve anyone's loyalty in this small town but still gets it because her family is well liked. Since I know I won't have a clue in a [...]

    3. This book had the most boring murder mystery I have ever read. So boring the recurring characters either didn't notice there was a murder in their town or just didn't care. This was more "day in the life of Midwestern librarian Kathleen" than mystery. I am giving it one star for the cats, Owen and Hercules, who were the only living beings who cared enough to solve the mystery. At least it fills in a reading challenge prompt.

    4. What continues to draw me to each new novel in the 'A Magical Cats ' mystery series? The talking between the cats and their owner, Kathleen Paulson, a Librarian. Since I held many 'talks' with our dogs over the years, and I would almost swear they responded, the fact that this series has made the cats 'magical' and with intelligence, does not ask me to suspend belief to enter into the mystery on hand. So, having accepted this major part of the book, I sat back for a great read, and I got one.Kat [...]

    5. So I liked this, because - finally! - there's some movement on the Marcus front! (Mystery? What mystery?) And I really like the ending, because otherwise they'd be circling around the same conflict for way too long.

    6. This one's pretty entertaining. I very much enjoy how pretty much the entire town now ships Kathleen/Marcus, to the extent that they all pretty much grin in glee at any sign of affection between the two. Also enjoy how the cats have more distinctive personalities. Plus, y'know, the fact that Kathleen's mother apparently took a job on what is essentially The Young and the Restless. I mean, sure, the adjectives are changed, but Plus the relationship development is better than it usually is in thes [...]

    11. Cat Trick is a wonderful 4th book in Sofie Kelly's Magical Cats Mystery series. This book brings back a former resident of Mayville Heights, Mike Glazer, a partner in a company that puts together vacation packages. He's in town to listen to the townsfolk pitch their case about focusing a package around Mayville Heights.

    12. Mayville, MN is trying to lour a tour group to visit there citing their art scene, beautiful setting and great restaurants. One of the principles of the company is a former resident, Mike Glazer. He wasn't well liked in Mayville. His family moved away after his older brother died in a car accident.

Then Mike's body is found in one of the [...]

    13. This is the 4th book in the series and the fourth one I've read in a row. Yep, I'm hooked. After reading the first one and being surprised at how charming and well written it was; I am only too happy to read the entire series. They just continue to get better as the characters and town, not to mention the cats, become more familiar. The likability factor is through the roof and that's really what I want in a cozy series. I don't read many 'cozies' but I love serial mystery/crime/detective novels [...]

    14. I love this series. The town is filled with colorful characters who you would enjoy knowing. Kathleen is a fun protagonist and you really like her and worry about her and care what happens in her life. Her feline sidekicks Hercules and Owen are wonderful they add so much to the story. I think it is great that they have supernatural powers. The mystery is top notched and she gives clues that allow the reader a chance to figure out who did it. Also Kathleen usually figures out who did by investiga [...]

    15. Ok, I am going to go backwards this time. I loved the ending, what a great cliffhanger. Now for the rest of the book. Only so so. I thought there were too many details to things that really didn't apply. As I read I found myself a little bored. I do love Sofie Kelly's books but this one was just ok, besides the ending. The first three I thought grabbed the reader more. All that said I really can't wait for the new book to see what happens. Happy Reading :)

    16. This has become one of my favorite cozy series and I'm already excited for the next one to come out! Highly recommended!

    17. To increase tourism in the fall off season in Mayville Heights, a group of townspeople propose a tour package with a tour group from Chicago. One of the partners from the tour group used to live in Mayville Heights but as he looks over the proposal in person he ends up dead! Kathleen and Marcus have begun a budding relationship but Marcus does not like Kathleen to interfere with his investigations. People like to tell Kathleen things so with the help of her two adorable kitties she figures out w [...]

    18. Fun audiobook and a silly but satisfying mystery. Kathleen's cats continue to involve her in murders that are dangerous, mysterious, and throw her and Police Detective Marcus into conflict - which, as usual, they manage to overcome with chaste flirtations and teamwork. I still don't understand why Kathleen worries so much about her cats; as far as I've ever seen, everyone talks to their cats, everyone thinks their cats can understand them, and cats always end up where they're not supposed to be. [...]

    19. You cannot help but fall in love with Herc and Owen, the little cats who help their Mommy,Kathleen the librarian with clues to solve the mysteries in Mayville. I really liked this book in the series as well. What's great about this series is that the books can be read as stand-alones or as part of the series. This has to be one of my favorite if not the favorite of the many cozy mystery series I have read. Once again, I must recommend this seriesrticularly if you are a cat lover. I'm so glad I w [...]

    20. This series by Sophie Kelly keeps getting better and better, this time the town is trying to drum up more tourist trade but this almost screeches to a halt when a) the person from the tour company puts almost every one's backs up and b) he ends up dead!Add in the complication of Kathleen not being sure if she will be staying, her friendship with Detective Marcus Gordon moving up a notch and of course Owen and Hercules and we have a wonderful and fast paced story to keep us entertained.

    21. I enjoyed the characters and the small town setting in this book. In addition to the human characters there are also 2 cats with “special” powers, Owen and Hercules. I like cozy mysterious with normal pets, but this book doesn’t need magical cats. I will read other books in this series, but I wish the cats were just regular pets.

    22. This whole series just tickles me. I would love to live next door to Kathleen, the main character, and the cats areSUCH CATS! There are lots of hints that they have human intelligence, but it never beats you over the head, and their true-to-life cat nature always shines through.

    23. Finally Kathleen and Markus get together at the end of this book. I also liked the fact that the murderer was an out of town business associate of the man who was murdered.

    24. I love this series! The interaction between Kathleen, Hercules, and Owen are priceless and thoroughly entertaining. I can't get enough of them.
