Ghostly Paws (Mystic Notch Cozy Mystery #1) - Leighann Dobbs (book review)

Read this cosy crime novel with cats a while ago. Maybe not the best book I have read but still pretty cute.

Middle age can be murder ... 

At least that’s how it seems to former crime journalist, Wilhelmina Chance, whose near-fatal accident has given her a strange side effect ... she sees ghosts. 

After a messy divorce sends her fleeing back to her hometown of Mystic Notch, nestled in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Willa finds herself haunted by the tenacious ghost of the town librarian who insists Willa solve her murder. 

Luckily, she has lots of help, including a quirky cast of small-town characters, the cat she’s inherited from her grandmother, and her best friend, Pepper, who claims her herbal teas can work magic. 

But just when Willa thinks she’s discovered who the killer is, she finds out that things are not what they seem in Mystic Notch, and the case takes a strange turn that has Willa adding even some of her long-time friends to her suspect list. 

Can Willa find the real killer in time to keep the magical balance in Mystic Notch on the side of good, or will evil prevail?

My Thoughts

This book was okay, it is a very interesting ghost story but I must say it took a wile to get into it and there where not much going on. I liked the cat aspect and the murder mysterious but I had a hard time to connect with the main character who seamed to be a bit lame.

Also there where stuff who didnt add up for me when I was reading so I wondered if there had been any beta and proofreading but I dont know. I think I will give the second book a try later on, and hope they will be better because the main storyline is interesting but it is lost in this story.

I would say this is an easy to read story and dont have that much depth and stuff going on. It is like Leighann Dobbs is trying to be Agatha Christi and fails instead of making it her own.
