The Cats that Stole a Million by Karen Anne Golden
It took me awhile to get into this one, the first half of the book just wasn’t holding my interest. Although it had a great plot, it just seemed a little unfocused; it didn’t flow as well as the other books in the series.
As I said, the plot was great. Katz’s old school friend Madison shows up unexpectedly on her doorstep after her plane was diverted from Chicago to Indianapolis. Russian mobsters, a missing package and lots of bullets ensue, all in the midst of a blizzard. While the plot took awhile to get going, it made up for it in the last half of the book, with a satisfying ending.
I like seeing Stevie more in these books, he’s an intriguing, well-drawn character and really adds to the series as the tragic hero. The addition of his daughter will be something to look forward to in later books.
And why doesn’t Katz just remove the doorbell if it’s such a problem?
Overall, an enjoyable read in a great series, and I recommend the series to cozy mystery fans.
