Haven’t you had one piece of jewelry that makes you feel a little sassy and sexy when you wear it? Molly found a necklace that did just that during the heartbreaking task of sorting through her late mother’s home and belonging. What she would discover would be that sometimes even if something feels magical, it may not be the magic one would want to touch.

Lucian is a 12th century reincarnated knight. Now living in Cat’s Paw Cove, Florida, a town secretly harboring magic beings of all kinds, he he

Fun book with romance and a battle between good and evil. The book opens with a prologue telling how Lucian and his cat, Galahad, ended up in the position they are in.

He is in Cat's Paw Cove helping his grandfather with his antique shop after getting in trouble with his bosses for revealing his magical abilities to his non-magical girlfriend. The revelation did not save the relationship, so ...more

Yet another winner

I have loved reading Catherine's books since she first got published, and this one didn't disappoint. Great story, interesting characters, and some zany cats make this a story worth reading. I loved how she was able to combine her historical flair with modern day magic. As always, a great read and a fun addition to the Cat's Paw Cove collection.

This is the 1st book I've read written by Catherine Kean; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

5 STARS!!!

I absolutely loved this story. Not only is there 1 talking cat but 5!! The relationship between Galahad and Lucian is a friendship for the ages. They have been stuck together for centuries and that bond comes across clearly in the writing. When Lucian and Molly meet you can see the sparks flying straight off the pages. This is my first visit to Cat's Paw Cove and I can honestly say it will not be my last. This is the 5th book in the series but I did not feel in the dark even though I

Magic, mystery and love this story has it all. Our hero is a reincarnated 12th century knight who has learned a thing or two over the years. He is tasked with keeping dark magic items safe and out of the hands of those who would use and abuse them. Our heroine has unwittingly stumbled across one such item and Lucian is tasked with obtaining it by any means necessary. What he didn’t count on was Molly stealing his heart. This is a fun tale filled with snarky talking cats and the magic of love. Th ...more

Hot Magic is the fifth book in the Cat's Paw Cove series. I loved this paranormal cozy mystery. The characters are well developed and quirky, especially the fabulous fun felines. The storyline is well written and engaging, with reincarnation, magic, suspense, danger, evil, romance, and talking cats.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I cannot wait to read more.
I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

Lucien has been cursed to perpetual reincarnation after rejecting unwanted affections. He’s currently running his grandfather’s antique shop. Molly is in town after her mother’s death. She asks to have some of her mother’s things appraised. However, a tainted necklace may change everything. Cat’s Paw Cove is an enjoyable series, where hilarious cats are major characters.

Such a fun read ! This is the 5th book in this series and I have enjoyed them all. Plenty of adventure in this one with the lively back and forth with Molly and Lucian but when you add in the talking cats it really makes you laugh. A light hearted book with a good storyline and great characters. looking forward to reading more.

This book was like paranormal meets the hallmark channel. It was sweet, funny, and exciting. I definitely fell a little bit in love with Lucian and Galahad. Molly was refreshingly normal and fun. I loved how seamlessly the magic worked into the story and the lives of the characters.

I was left, however, with so many questions at the end of the book.

Princess Fuzzypants here: I keep saying I am not a huge romance fan and yet with each book of this series I read, I enjoy the stories thoroughly. Whether it is the cool and canny cats, the right touch of magic and the just enough lusty stuff to tickle the fancy without being too explicit, ,this one does not disappoint.
