Reviewed by  Katrina Wiese


Lavender, Texas, is abuzz with Pumpkin Day Festival activity, and while Sabrina is excited for the festivities to begin, she worries that she isn't getting in the time on her second novel that she would like. When Sabrina runs into her doppelganger at the festival, a vendor by the name of Tia, who coincidentally has a lookalike black cat by the name of Merlin, she is surprised and intrigued. But surprise turns to unease when a fellow vendor from the festival threatens Sabrina, thinking she is Tia. When that same vendor ends up dead, all fingers point to Tia being the culprit; however, Sabrina isn't so sure. Now it will take Sabrina, along with her new feline duo, to find the suspect before bad luck settles to close to home!

Can I just start by saying, I loved this book! How can you not love a book with a black feline escape artist and sleuth by the name of Hitchcock? Add to the fact that we now also have his doppleganger in the form of Merlin, and we are treated to twice the feline fun!

I have been meaning to pick up and start this series since I saw the first book cover, and I am so glad I got the chance to review this book! I am so impressed with Kay Finch's writing style and character development. I was immersed in the little Texas town of Lavender and fell in love instantly, in part due to the scenery, but also due to the cast of characters that make up the town. This cast is a well-developed crew whom you instantly want to become friends with. I love their southern banter, hospitality and protectiveness! Add to the fact that the mystery in this novel is top notch, you have a grand slam of a well-written book with enough mystery to leave you on the edge of your seat and keep you guessing till the end. If you don't pick up this series, I am afraid you will be left with bad luck, the bad luck of missing out on a superb series!

Don't forget to check out the back of the book for some scrumptious recipes that had me drooling while reading!
