Sleuthclubbing with Kathi and Cait! Week 2; Five Amigos Fall-O-Ween Fun.

sheryl

Don’t you hate it when your guest speaker ends up dead after an event YOU hosted? I mean, Amanda Lowman was just at The Mystery Lovers Book Club talking about her most recent book and the interesting case that inspired her upcoming book and then boom, dead. Poor Cait.

Count Catula is not shy about getting the reader straight into a murder in only one chapter. I was hooked from the very beginning. Who wouldn’t love being able to chat with a famous author and hear about her research on real crimes and chat that she feels inspired to write about? The mysterious and sometimes spooky Pelican Bay is the perfect setting for such a murder.

Caitlin Hart runs Coffee Cats Bookstore and also seems to run a small sleuth club (as I would call it), helped along with some cats who know a lot about things cats shouldn’t know about. Would I call them magic? I don’t know, but they sure are something. As with the prior books, a cat approaches Cait and works in the background to help solve the murder. Tansy, the local “witch” seems to always have some sluthtastic cat around that makes it’s way into Cait’s Kathi Daley Count Catulahouse. Where can I get a cat like that Kathi? Can I put in a request?

I love this group that Cait hangs out with, some shop owners, friends and even a man of the law. It seems like an unlikely group to be honest, but Kathi writes these characters to be so interesting, that it just works. You know how opposites attract? That’s this group okay! They are sleuthclubbing.

Between the murder storyline, the way she throws the reader in different directions and a bit of parakitty, as I like to call it, this might be my favorite of the Whales and Tails Mystery series. It could be that I just love Amanda’s way of doing book research, but this story of all the ones I have read just hooked me in a big way. I think I would have liked to know more about Amanda. She sounds like a cool writer.

I am so happy with this fall read. I hope you will be too. What am I saying…of course you will be.

 

Here is your BTB DALEY word list to remember how awesome this book is:

Parakitty-magical cat that is able to somehow talk with Cait through an unknown means.

Sluthtastic– word to describe a person or animal that is amazing at solving cases.

Sleuthclubbing-group of friends gathering together to solve yet ANOTHER crime in their town. #deadpeoplekeepshowingup

About Murder At Dolphin Bay by Kathi Daley :

Kailani Pope wants nothing more than to be a proud member of the Honolulu Police Department. Both her father and grandfather were cops, her five brothers are cops, and the only thing she has ever wanted from the time she can remember wanting anything, was to be a cop. She has passed all the requirements to be selected for the police academy but somehow her number never seems to come up.

While she is waiting for her name to work its way to the top of the list she works as a lifeguard for the Dolphin Bay Resort. When a guest of the resort is found murdered, Kailani decides that if she can solve the murder before her brother who has been assigned to the case by HPD, then the department will have no choice but to take her application seriously and move her to the top of the list.

Murder at Dolphin Bay is set on the beautiful island of Oahu providing a perfect backdrop for the perfect beach read.
