Cat Collier and friends Yellow Moon rescue ……

Cat Collier Detective Agency is on a new case in April Yellow Moon. This month’s mystery introduces new characters as well as the returning cast of characters we learn more about. Like a clever puzzle; we are given pieces to put in place…but aren’t quite sure how they will all fit together. There are many pieces to put together. Cat, of course, is always solving puzzles and will quickly work towards the solution. A poisoning, more threats, and a friends kidnapping quickly evolves. But I suspect that there will be more to be solved in next month’s mystery because there are more missing people to be found and more puzzles to be solved……

Blue is more than just a color!

Carol Ann Kauffman has got to stop leaving me hanging at the end of the book. Not just me but all of you readers. I was so into this book that when I finished the last page, I couldn’t figure out why the page on my kindle wouldn’t turn. So Good! Good Book!
Let’s see, how to sum it up without giving any spoilers. Cat is kidnapped and held in a train car. She escapes and falls over a homeless man, nice guy. He hide’s her from the bad guys and she takes him back to her office so he can clean up, clean clothes and a hot meal. Cat tell’s Detrick about him and his name and Detrick knows him.
Detrick decides to open up a bar in the hotel and has Cat, Fred and Nola help set things up. It turns out fantastic and is a big hit. Good drink’s, great food and amazing music.
Cat gets a new client and she has to give an envelope to this guys son in New York City. Then you hit the wall of the end! Good Book! So Good!

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.

Mary Catherine Collier is called to the penthouse apartment of the city’s very rich, most influential lawyer, Detrick Bittmor. He has a very personal assignment for her. It involves a mysterious young man who sits on a park bench every day at noon and stares up at Bittmor’s top floor apartment.
Mary Catherine, or Cat, as she’s better known, has a soft spot for this lawyer with a nasty reputation. There’s something about this old man she likes, and even finds charming.
Detrick Bittmor thinks the young man on the park bench resembles a younger version of himself. He thinks this young man could be his son from an affair he had many years ago with a beautiful New Year lawyer. This man could be his only heir.
And old man Bittmor isn’t getting any younger.

I have discovered a new author to follow

I found that I really enjoyed January Black Ice so much that I read the February and March books right after this one. It kept my attention and I liked the main characters. I would certainly recommend it for compelling reading.

Sarah is a beautiful redhead who works for a special agency that fixes broken timelines and rescues historically significant people who are in trouble. She has a special set of skills that allow her to ‘tap’ someone out of a dangerous situation. Her present assignment is to find and rescue a prince whose son eliminates hunger and disease on his island nation.
“Save the Prince; save the King; and save the Reds. In doing so, Red Sarah may just save herself, who knows, but what might be the cost? Moving from modern-day wisecrackery to a time of romance long ago, Carol Ann Kauffman’s tale is filled with majesty and bravery. This time travel story is a gift for all.” – Amazon Review
“Sarah has one job, and that is to rescue Crown Prince Lucas of Mist from captivity in a dungeon. Yet everything is not as it seems and will Sarah be able to stop an upcoming war?
This was an interesting book about time travel and trying not to disrupt the time continuum. I liked Sarah, and it was interesting on where she and Lucas ended up.”

A heartwarming story of love and devotion!

Echo of Heartbreak: A Recipe for Life, by Carol Ann Kauffman, is a heartwarming story of love and devotion a mother has for her unborn child. Knowing she may not live through the pregnancy or childbirth, she is still determined to bring her child into the world. So she begins to leave a legacy in the form of a journal, filled with tips of how to live a good life and adds recipes from her Italian heritage.

This is an extremely enjoyable story filled with emotion and sentiment. It shows, on every page, the love this mom has for her child, no matter what and plans ahead to teach her child about love and devotion. I also like the way the author enveloped the journal entries and the recipes in between the pages of the story, to tug our heartstrings along, every step of the way. (less)
