Light cozy mystery reading with relatable characters. The story contains a lot of heart, some humor, romantic angst and in-law troubles. The animals involved add interest. This is a stand alone tale. If you haven't read the previous ones, you will be tempted by snippets of other characters and will want to know their stories, too. The murder mystery keeps one guessing.
Kitten KaboodleZoe Donovan Mystery, Book #20Kathi Daley5 StarsSynopsis:Zak's honorary grandmother Nona decides to come to Ashton Falls for the summer. After arriving she meets and befriends an animal activist set on shutting down a kitten mill just outside of town. When the kitten mill owner is found dead on her barn floor, Nona becomes the prime suspect and Zoe sets out to prove her innocence. Kitten Kaboodle is chalked full of humor, surprises, and life changing events, as we discover who really framed Nona, the reason behind a visit from Zak’s mother, and Ellie’s shocking secret. (Goodreads)Review:As usual, a book written by this author has great character development. I really enjoyed getting to spend more time with Zoe and the gang and see what has been happening in their lives. I could read about them all day long and not get bored. They feel like friends I have known for a long time. And we got to read about Nona again and enjoy her antics and get aggravated by Zak’s mom.The mystery is carried on well throughout the entire book. The are enough suspects and clues to keep the reader guessing and I was surprised at the outcome.I really enjoyed reading more about Zoe and her animal sanctuary. I loved reading about the way she was able to rescue some newborn pups and how she took care of some of the sickly kittens. It was heartwarming and added another level to the story.I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. If you have not had the pleasure of reading any of Kathi Daley’s books, it is time you got them and read them. All of her series are fantastic.
Hard to believe this is the 20th Zoe Donovan mystery. Kathi's flagship series features an interesting and sometimes quirky cast of characters that inhabit a fictional town that sits on a lake much like Lake Tahoe. Each book features a mystery but more important to Kathi's readers each book also features a glimpse into her characters lives and the workings of a small town. The plots are multi-threaded and the characters are allowed to grow and change and even learn from their mistakes. The books are clean reads and while they center around a murder there is no graphic descriptions of blood and gore. They are true to the cozy genre. Additionally the books are well edited both for content and flow and for errors.Each book is a standalone and while there is usually a hint of what may next these are not cliff hangers. I would suggest that your read the series in order though as the characters to grow and change through the books.
Kitten Kaboodle is the 20th book in Kathi Daley’s Zoe Donovan Mystery series. This book is a cozy mystery with a well-plotted storyline, relatable characters, plenty of twists and turns, and lots of humor. I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a clean mystery that keeps you guessing until the final reveal.Zak and the kids are out of town when Nona, Zak’s honorary grandmother, comes to Ashton Falls for the summer. Nona is feisty and delightful. Nona becomes friends with Aspen Woods, an animal activist, and tries to help her shut down a kitten mill. When the body of Edna Leech, the owner of the kitten mill, is discovered, Nona is arrested and Zoe starts her own investigation to find the true culprit. Zoe learns that there is no shortage of suspects. When Zak’s mother learns of Nona’s arrest, she and several other unwelcome relatives arrive on the scene and add to Zoe’s distress.
Kitten Kaboodle is the 20th book in the Zoe Donovan Mystery series by Kathi Daley. While Zak and the foster children are out of town, Zoe finds herself dealing with Nona, Zak’s honorary Grandma. To add to Zoe’s distress, her mother-in-law and other difficult family members drop in for a three week stay and a litter of kitten is left on her porch. The quirky, free spirited Nona befriends Aspen Woods, an animal activist, and enlists her help in shutting down a kitten mill run by Edna Leech. When Edna Leech is found murdered, Nona becomes the primary suspect. Her best friend Ellie can’t seem to recover from the flu and is in no shape to help Zoe investigate. Is Nona guilty? What is making Ellie sick? Will Zoe be able to save and rehome all of the kittens? Will Zoe successfully narrow down a long list of suspects? This cozy mystery has a tightly woven plot with a host of well-developed characters and lots of humor. This is a stand-alone book, but you will want to read the others in this series if you haven’t already done so. The ending is filled with surprises and I cannot wait until the next book is released as I suspect even greater surprises are coming! A superb addition to the series.Full Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed in this review are my own.
