Pussyfoot: A Midnight Louie Mystery (Midnight Louie Mysteries)
2 journalers for this copy...
Started reading this right away, since it was the next in the series, and because I spent some unexpected time at Birdie's and didn't have a book with me (gasp!). This doesn't happen often (not having a book, *not* going to Birdie's).
From the cover -
Midnight Louie is aprowl again - and the game is definitely afoot when petite public relations freelancer Temple Barr finds herself at a striptease convention, up to her spike heels in musclebound males, siliconed females,... and murder. As Temple tracks the killer, Midnight Louie pursues his own investigation. Now that fading film star Savannah Ashleigh and the Divine Yvette, her purebred Persian (and Louie's platinum-haired lost love) are among the endangered, the tomcat sleuth will leave no rhinestone unturned to find the murderer...
We get a rather unexpected murderer in this one, and several victims. I thought Temple's theory towards the end rather original, and as usual Molina discounts anything ferreted out by the "civilian." But I think they're coming to respect each other a bit more, even though they still rub each other the wrong way. A wonderful mystery tale, and I'm looking forward to finding more of these. I have the 4th book, just need to find #3 now.
This will be reserved for a cozy mystery bookbox in a few months.
The last time I saw MaryZee, she was telling me that she wanted to start a book box with the theme of Kitties & Kozies. There are probably enough books in the collection to make that a reality. I will set this book aside for possible inclusion.
