Book Review: Purrs and Peril

If you are looking for a cozy mystery, this is just about as cozy as it can get. Which is exactly what I needed when I downloaded this ebook. I was stressed out (birthing two books before the end of the month when my MA Egyptology studies start). It turned out to be a good choice to calm down my mind – despite being a murder mystery.

There is nothing too scary about Purrs and Peril. it has just the right amount of wondering who-did-it in the midst of cozy baking and knitting (the protagonist has inherited a small café and runs it with the help of her cousin and a Norwegian forest cat.) There is a touch of budding romance – of course there has to be a handsome detective… Cute story. I was kinda waiting for the cat to have her own thoughts and maybe “say” things. She did not, but had an endearing presence nevertheless. I could almost hear in my ears the “brrt” she said when discussing with her human, and while leading the cafeteria customers to their seats – which the cat chose for them.

if I had not been so stressed, I probably would have needed a little bit more action, but as it was, it was the perfect thing to read. I give the book four stars.
