Totally Pawstruck - Cozy Mystery Review

Goodreads:  Totally Pawstruck (Second Chance Cat Mystery #9) by Sofie Ryan

Rating: Really Liked It!
Source:   Publisher

Description:  Although Sarah Grayson is often tending to the contained chaos of her delightful secondhand store in North Harbor, Maine, plus dealing with the quirky personality of her rescue cat, Elvis, she still takes an occasional night off. But her evening out comes to an abrupt end when Sarah discovers Stella Hall, a member of the library board, standing over a body in the street.

Although Stella admits that she and the victim had fought about several things including library funding, she is adamant that she is innocent and the real killer is on the loose. Sarah is eager to help, but even with the assistance of Charlotte's Angels, the senior citizen detectives who rent out part of her shop, there is still a vast amount of circumstantial evidence linking Stella to the crime. The odds may be stacked against them, but Sarah and Elvis, along with the Angels, will work hard to check out the suspects and catch a killer.

Genre: Mystery - Cozy

Why I Picked This Book:  I absolutely love this series so of course I couldn't resist this newest book!

My Impression: I so enjoy this series!  I do like the mysteries in each book but my favorite part is the community of Sarah's store with Mac, Avery, and all the Angels.  I love their dynamic and I love that they all drive Sarah crazy at one time or another but also clearly love her and she loves them.   My favorite part about this series was that we really get to see more of Liz.  And not just Sarah's grandmother's best friend Liz but Liz in her element with all her power and connections.   I'm quite sure I want to grow up to be Liz or at the very least have someone like her on my side.  

The mystery was interesting and I do love when it's easier to figure out who wouldn't want to kill the victim.  I wasn't sure who the real killer was until the very end.  I think I figured it out at the same time Sarah did.  My only complaint with this entry in the series is that Nick and Mr. P weren't as active in the book as they have been in previous books.   

Would I Read More of this Series/Author?  Definitely!  I'm actually a little sad that I'm caught up on this series because I now have to wait until the next book to spend more time with these characters.

Would I Recommend this Book? If you love cozy mysteries or books with a fun group of characters this is a must read series.
