The trail of graft and corruption leads Cat into danger as she hides the mystery woman with the old, reclusive lawyer Detrick Bittmor for safe keeping.
Cat’s relationship with the handsome Erick “Carter” Larsen is put in jeopardy when she teams up with Officer Kiernan Scott from the Heaton Valley Police Department to unravel the mystery in February White Lies.
The second in a very good series.
Having thoroughly enjoyed ‘January Black Ice’, the first in Kauffman’s Cat Collier mystery series last year, I started this second installment feeling a little sorry that I had left it so long.
‘February White Lies’ picks up the story of Cat and her boyfriend Carter a short while after the end of the first story. Members of their families and friends return as regular characters, alongside new people of interest in a new mystery.
Kauffman’s characters are natural and familiarly drawn, and her writing is comfortable and easy to read. The different characters’ stories are interwoven neatly enough to work in a novella, but without the events of the plot feeling contrived or relationships overly orchestrated.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, so I’m going to commit to reading ‘March Blues’ in the coming month.
