On Flashback Fridays I will share with you the books I missed when they were first
released that have been screaming at me from my To-Be-Read bookshelf.

I am happy to say that my reading is getting back on schedule
and next week I will be back to reviewing those books my To-Be-Read bookshelf.

Today I am sharing another wonderful story from Ali Brandon!
I just found book 1 in this series on another shelf!
Be sure to enter the giveaway for A Novel Way to Die, the 2nd book in the series that I featured last week here.

Double Booked for Death (A Black Cat Bookshop Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
1st in Series
A Berkley Prime Crime Mystery (December 6, 2011)
Published by The Penguin Group
Mass Market Paperback: 336 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0425244975

Darla Pettistone left Texas for New York after unexpectedly inheriting her Great-Aunt Dee’s Brooklyn bookstore. She didn’t know that the store’s mascot—Hamlet, an oversize black cat with a personality to match—was also part of the deal. And he may be more trouble than Darla bargained for…

As the new owner of Pettistone’s Fine Books, Darla Pettistone is determined to prove herself a worthy successor to her late great-aunt Dee…and equally determined to outwit Hamlet, the smarter-than-thou cat she inherited along with the shop.

Darla’s first store event is a real coup—the hottest bestselling author of the moment is holding a signing there, which brings hordes of fans and some protestors. But when the author meets an untimely end during the event, it’s hardly good for business, even though it’s ruled an accident…until Hamlet digs up a clue that seems to indicate otherwise. Now Darla fears a killer might be lurking about… Can the interfering Hamlet point the paw at the culprit without losing one of his own nine lives?

  1. I love a cozy that is centered around a bookstore and it includes a smarter than average feline so it’s sounds perfect to me.

  2. This book sounds like a great read. Like that the setting is a bookstore with a cat named Hamlet.
