Cat-Eye Witness Book Review

I have another delightful light mystery book from Patricia Fry that involves the Klepto Cat again and this one is called Cat-Eye Witness. These series of books are the Klepto Cat Mystery series and they are full of humor and good natured, so anyone can read them!
Savannah and Aunt Margaret open the old Forster home to the Hammond Cat Alliance for a fundraiser to help rehabilitate the abused horses rescued months earlier from the catnappers. Before the afternoon is over, the funds collected go missing and someone is murdered in an upstairs bedroom. Suspicion surrounds Iris, a local waitress and Savannah’s new best friend. The only witness to the murder is Rags, Savannah’s cat.  
With the assistance of a cat psychic and Rags’s good friend, Charlotte (the young girl with Downs), the cat helps to “paw” the killer…but not before an attempt is made on Rags’s life. The case is solved only after Rags comes face-to-face with the killer for the second time under most unusual circumstances.
You will love reading these Klepto Cat Mysteries if you haven't already been reading them! They are fun, full of humor even though some have murders in them. It's funny because they call in a special cat psychic because Rags, the cat, witnessed someone being killed, so they call in the psychic to see if they can figure out who the killer is.
I think the whole concept was quite funny and it's really meant to be a light hearted mystery with still the chase of figuring out who did it but with a flair of dramatic humor. It's different than your ordinary murder/mystery and I guess that is why I love these books. Every now and then you just got to have a break from all the bleakness, so this is my special treat to myself.
Happy Reading!
