All cat owners think their cats are special, but Kathleen Paulson’s cats really are! Leaving behind Boston and her broken heart, Kathleen is making a new life for herself, at work restoring a library in Minnesota. One day while exploring an abandoned house, she discovers that she has two ardent followers – a tabby cat and a tuxedo cat. Now named Owen and Hercules, she is amazed to discover each has a hidden talent. But what really shocks her is her discovery of a dead composer at the theatre. More distressing is that it seems someone is setting Kathleen up to be the fall guy in the murder. With a little help from her friends – the four-footed variety – Kathleen sets out to find the culprit. The first in a series, this cozy of magical cats will charm the socks off you. ( )

Kathleen Paulson left her life in Boston behind to be head librarian in Mayville Heights, Minnesota. Shortly after moving she is adopted by two cats who literally follow her home. Owen is a tabby with a catnip addiction and Hercules is a tuxedo cat that shares Kathleen's fondness of Barry Manilow. Small town life is nice and quiet until murder interrupts Mayville's Summer Music Festival and Kathleen suddenly finds herself as one of the main suspects.

This was a fun, cat-themed mystery. A light, easy read that was a nice change from what I had been reading lately. The mystery itself is fairly easy to guess after a few clues though Kelly did try to throw in a little twist that made me second guess myself for a chapter or two. The cats' magical abilities were down played. I hope they are developed more in future books. ( )

A delightful mystery in which Kathleen, a librarian moves from Boston to a small town in Minnesota to oversee the restoration of the town library. Construction delays, minor accidents and two cats with unusual habits keep Kathleen busy while she tries to solve a murder. An array of interesting friends and neighbors and a persistent detective add to the story, making a fun and entertaining read with a satisfying ending. ( )

Enjoyable, lightweight cozy. Likable characters, interesting cats, nice setups for future mysteries. What is the secret of Wisteria House? ( )

In Kelly’s mystery novel, Kathleen Paulson has been transplanted from Boston to Mayville Heights, Minnesota and is now the head librarian of a small community library. Since her arrival, she has supervised the on-going renovations of the library, adopted two mysterious cats, and found herself a person of interest in a murder investigation.

The most stunning discovery revolves around the somewhat “magical” tendencies of her cats and their sleuthing to help her solve the murder of a visiting conductor.

An exciting new series that is inventive, “magical”, and introduces Kathleen Paulson as a likeable amateur sleuth. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451232496, Mass Market Paperback)

When librarian Kathleen Paulson moved to Mayville Heights, Minnesota, she had no idea that two strays would nuzzle their way into her life. Owen is a tabby with a catnip addiction and Hercules is a stocky tuxedo cat who shares Kathleen's fondness for Barry Manilow. But beyond all the fur and purrs, there's something more to these felines.

When murder interrupts Mayville's Music Festival, Kathleen finds herself the prime suspect. More stunning is her realization that Owen and Hercules are magical-and she's relying on their skills to solve a purr-fect murder.
