Literally Murder

A Black Cat Bookshop Mystery, #4

This was a really nice book for cat lovers. Not only was there a cat show, kittens that needed homes but also a mystery that needed to be solved. My favorite part was the end! I cannot say why, but I loved it! There was also a very interesting memorial service where a fight broke out, it made me wonder about the killer and the victim. The cat show outcome was interesting and I looked up pictures of this breed. I loved Hamlet and he was my favorite character. I liked that Darla sold mysteries and solved them. However I am not sure that she was ready for her cat to be so close to the victim.
