"Double Booked For Murder" by Ali Brandon

Double Booked For Death—a Black Cat Bookshop Mystery by Ali Brandon is about solving the mystery of a popular author’s death when at a book signing in an independent book store owned by Darla.  This is a cozy mystery that Darla and her ex-cop friend, Jake, who also acts as her security guard for the bookstore tries to solve.  This is a fun read because it includes Hamlet, the bookstore cat and some interesting twists along the way as clues are eventually connected.  

I just couldn’t resist reading a mystery about a cat and a bookstore but was a bit disappointed the cat didn't have a bigger role.  Although the cat is on the cover, it really is incidental to the story.  The ending was really fun!  I’m not much on cozy mysteries, but this is the best I’ve read so far.  

Have you read this one? What did you think of it?

  1. Looks like one I may want to read sometime. LOL, just what I need, yet another want to read book. :) Is this the first book in this particular series? If it isn't, do you have to read the ones before it to fully get this book? Just curious, I know sometimes you need to have read the whole series or a book later in the series don't make sense.

  2. Thank you for supporting a crisis pregnancy center. I volunteer for one here in Fort Worth and it's amazing the good we are able to do for young women in the community.

  3. This one is on my shelves for the same reason you read it...a cat and a bookstore. Sad to hear the cat doesn't have a bigger role. I'll still be reading it but maybe after Buzz Off ;)
