Sarah Grayson and
her hilarious and smart cat, Elvis, are back with another
mystery. The elderly P I group dubbed “Charlottes Angels”
have another case to solve, and this time it involves Mac,
the man who helps Sophie to run her shop, Second Chance. Mac
helps with refurbishing furniture and does the heavy lifting,
as well as being a close friend to Sophie and the others.
It seems that Mac is married, but his wife,
Leila, has been in a coma, and Mac was suspected of trying
to kill her. When his wife's friend, Erin Fellowes, comes
to North Harbor, Maine, looking for Mac, she is promptly murdered
before she sees him, yet Mac becomes the prime suspect. Naturally,
Sarah and the Angels make it their mission to prove their
dear friend's innocence.
While I was quickly able to figure out who
the killer was, I wasn't able to attribute a motive to the
person, so it was an interesting challenge to try to discover
clues throughout the story. It was nice to add some depth
to Mac's background and to learn what makes him tick.
As with the previous books, Elvis is one of
my favorite characters, and his antics provide many smiles
to the reader. The Angels are proof positive that getting
older doesn't mean you can't still fight the bad guys and
This is another charming book in a delightful
series, and, as always, after the last page is turned I'm
hungry for the next book to be written. Four paws up!
Reviewers Note: The author also writes The Magical
Cat Mysteries as Sofie Kelly.
