I saw a review online about this book, and it reminded me of my long time affair with "cozy" mysteries, especially those in a series. This one has all the things that were guaranteed to get my attention--it takes place in a bookstore, with booksellers as main characters, there's a moody resident cat who seems a very astute sleuth in his own right, there's a touch of romance, and there's a lot of very familiar frustrations about being an indie bookseller that made me laugh out loud more than once. And it's the first in a series to be called "Black Cat Bookshop Mysteries", after Hamlet, the propriatary cat. This book involves an author dying during an in-store signing, and the mystery is pleasantly complex with plenty of twists and turns (and, actually, laughs). I very much look forward to the next book in the series.
