Kat Harper is back in Cherry Hills, Washington but it’s not long before she runs into trouble. A cat named Matilda leads her to her owner’s apartment and it’s there that Kat discovers her neighbor, Mrs. Tinsdale has been murdered. With no one else to look after Matilda, Kat decides to give her a home.
Soon, Kat, with the help of her new fur baby, unravels a mystery and the motive behind the murder. There are a host of characters who were equally likely suspects in the crime. While Kat was busy trying to figure out who’s responsible for her neighbor’s death, it’s Matilda’s typical cat like behavior that points the finger, or in this case the paw, at the murderer. While all this is unraveling, there’s also a hint of a romance in later books for Kat and the detective.
This is the first book in a series but can be read alone as all loose ends are tied up. It’s a short read that can easily be handled in one sitting. It’s lighthearted and a fun story when you want your mystery fix but don’t have a lot of time on hand.
This first book has intrigued me enough to want to read more to see where Ms. Sleuth takes the series.

I enjoyed the characters, I look forward to seeing them gain dimension as the series goes on, as well as developing Kat's back story. Great plot, too although it wasn't so much solved as narrated.
Because the story was so short, only 60 or so pages, you don't get a lot of detail needed to set up a new story. Because of this, you don't "meet" the victim and the reader has to rely on the MC to "tell" the reader about past events, motivations, etc, so it becomes less a story and more of a narrative. Which may work in fiction, but it's not very effective in mysteries.
Also, I thought Matilda the cat would have more substance in the story. From the description, I thought the cat would find some way to tell Kat what she'd seen. But no, not really. The cat ended up being a part of the background except for one scene.
So, overall, a promising start to a new series but not without limitations due to story length. A few more pages and this would be a solid book.
