Undercover Kitty - Cozy Mystery Review

Goodreads:  Undercover Kitty (Second Chance Cat Mystery #8) by Sofie Ryan

Rating:  Liked It!
Source:  Publisher
Description:  Sarah and Elvis can always be found at a charming secondhand shop in the village of North Harbor, Maine. Despite the small-town setting, the daring duo often find themselves wrapped up in murder, but luckily they have help--a quirky group of senior citizens runs an amateur detective agency called Charlotte's Angels out of the store.

The Angels are hired to look into who is sabotaging cat shows in the state, and they decide the best way to do that is to send Elvis the cat undercover as a contestant. But then one of the cat show volunteers is murdered just before the latest competition, and Sarah and the Angels have to catch a killer in two shakes of a cat's tail!

Genre:  Mystery - Cozy

Why I Picked This Book:  This is a series I always enjoy and I was really excited to start this one - especially since Elvis is front and center.

My Impression:  I was pretty excited when I saw that Elvis is the star of the show in this book.  He's one of my favorite book cats and he did not disappoint!  Elvis is his usual adorable self and does not hesitate to voice his opinion (only in meows though he does get his point across).  I enjoyed the behind the scenes of the cat shows and the politics of the different cat groups.

While there is a mystery from the very beginning which is why the Angels are at the cat show in the first place the murder doesn't take place for some time and the investigation into that doesn't really get rolling until almost halfway through.  While it wasn't the most action packed book in the series the characters are so likable and entertaining that it was an entertaining read from start to finish.  

Would I Read More of this Series/Author?   Absolutely!  While this wasn't my favorite it was still fun and I will definitely be continuing with the series.  

Would I Recommend this Book?   I would as well as recommend this series in general.  It is such a fun series and one I think all cozy fans.

* I received this book in exchange for an honest review.  As always my opinions and impressions are completely my own. *


  1. I've read a few from this series & enjoyed them. I always love a Maine setting, and Elvis is charming!

  2. I've read a couple in this series and will definitely continue. The characters and Elvis are fun for sure.

  3. I haven't tried this series yet, but it does sound fun. I definitely need to meet Elvis! I am glad you enjoyed this one, Katherine!

  4. I like the sound of this series especially since it's about cats and we have Minnie-bo-Binny.
