I really wanted to like this book than I did because Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings onef my kids picked it ut for me But in all honesty it was just merely OK Perhaps part f the problem is that this is book 2 in a cozy mystery series and I have not read the first book But aside from that I had several problems with the book There are way too many minor characters I sense that the author wants the reader to feel that there is a community f individuals who live together and care about ne another If so that does come across but at a costit is too difficult to keep the characters straight and I didn t develop a connection with most f them The main character is likable as is ne f her employees who rents an apartment from her Other than that I felt no connection The book also does not have a true ending The reader can tell that the author is just setting up for the next book in the series Personally I don t like this device I ll choose to read the next book f any series based A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) on the strengthf the writing not because f a set up On a positive note the author does a nice job with the setting Individuals who are fans f cozy mysteries might also enjoy the author s use f a pet cat as a device in solving the mystery With all f the books I have In the End on my must read list I don t think I ll be continuingn with this series This was a nice follow up to book ne It had been awhile since I read book ne so took me a few minutes to remember the characters but after that it took ff pretty good Totally stumped and surprised n who done it and why I like when that happens By A Whisker is the second book in the A Second Chance Cat Mystery seriesThing are going well for Sarah Grayson and her store Second Chance where she sells refurbished andor repurposed items She is helped at the store by Mac her jack f all trades a retired financial adviser and an ardent sailor Her sales staff consists f three dear friends f Grams Rose Charlotte and Liz Also helping is Avery Liz s granddaughter A great cast f helpers and a uite humorous group tooThings are a little unsettled in North Harbor Maine Jon West f North By West wants to redevelop the waterfront but everyone is not in favor f the plan One The Age of Treachery of them is Lily Carter who runs Lily s Bakeryn the waterfront She refuses to sell her bakery and the project is looking to be doomed Someone has been pulling pranks and minor defacing f the bakery but when Lily is found dead at the bottom f the basement stair in the bakery it is clear about someone wanting Lily ut f the way for the project to progressLiz is first suspected but is soon cleared but Charlotte s Angels has already started to do a little detecting Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite of theirwn They first start looking into Jon West since without the bakery in his pocket the redevelopment will be doomed But there are also a couple building Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and the Workshop (Rouleur) owners who would like to sell there properties maybe that have gotten tiredf waiting For Lily to sell and have taken matters into their wn handsA wonderful story and an enjoyable bunch f characters Charlotte s Angels are a real treat They may not all agree with each When a Man Loves a Woman other all the time but they are always there to support eachther and provide some laughs particularly Rose And f course Elvis is around to help find the murderer tooLooking forward to the next book and to see if there might be romance in the future for Sarah A very good follow up in what is looking to be a good series Sofie Ryan did a wonderful job f continuing the consistency Keep From Falling of the character s actions and feelings through this book and the firstneSarah was Catalogue the Insanity once again a very good character I loved her shop and the fact that we actually saw her working in it In some mystery series I ve read it seems like the MC just abandons their jobn a whim to solve a murder however in this book Sofie works at her job as Blessed Homecoming ownerf Second Chance The Angels were again really fun I ve come to the conclusion that I really like Shrek older sleuths because they just comeut and say what they mean they don s mince their words Mr P Charlotte Liz and Rose all are wonderful examples f that I like Nick but yet I like Mac better both character are strong and can stand n their Look Alikes Jr. own however it seems like the author is setting up for a love triangle in future books Let s hope notThe mystery was very good I didn t guess the killer until Sarah didReally a good book there were a couplef editing errors that I noticed and the author seems to be setting up for a love triangle but verall a solid 4 star read I wasn t blown away but I wasn t disappointed either The main plot was well done but its motivation a little far fetched The twist at the end was a total surpriseWordy review to you by OBS reviewer DanieleIt is the uieter winter months in the tourist town f North Harbor Maine but Sophie. Sofie Ryan's charming follow up to The Whole Cat and Caboodle in the New York Times bestselling Second Chance Cat Mystery seriesThings have been uiet in the coastal town f North Harbor Maine since Sarah Grayson and her rescue cat Elvis solved their first murder Sarah is happy running Second Chan.
