The competition is heating up at the mini-golf invitational in Crystal Beach despite the deadly discovery on the 18th hole. With a golf course full of possible suspects, Sidney Grace is on high alert, trying to locate clues that might lead her to the murderer… or at least reveal a motive.
But when Officer Reece’s smoking hot deputy, who keeps his evenings tied up with “investigation stuff,” points the finger at Sidney as the leading suspect, she’s had it up to her witch’s hat. “I mean the nerve! I would make a better deputy than Ms. ‘I look amazing in a uniform!’”
And there’s more trouble headed this witch’s way. The fierce golf competition has everyone in a tizzy, including Sidney’s grandmother, Ada-Mae, who is sure that the leading contestant is playing under the influence of magic. To make matters worse, things keep getting stranger with Sidney’s mother, who could be under a spell of her own.
Can this young witch unlock her magical powers in time to save her mom? Who killed Sidney’s friend? And what secret is her cat, Mojo, trying to reveal about her new ghostly visitor?

My Rating: 4 stars
Feline Like a Suspect continues the Crystal Beach Magic Mystery series (serial) with a bit more about that mysterious death on the golf course and some new shenanigans going on with Sidney’s mother.
Everything you’d want to know about this title can be found in the Cover Description. And since this is a short part of the ongoing serial which ends in a cliffhanger ending (for now) there really isn’t much I can safely say about the plot without giving away spoilers.
I’m enjoying the stories, the cats are adorable if regal in their attitudes, and the mystery just gets a little deeper with each installment of the Crystal Beach Magic Mystery series. If you love a good Paranormal Cozy Mystery and don’t mind cliffhangers then this series/serial might be something you’d like to start… and I do strongly recommend starting with the first story. It’s lighthearted fun with some magic, a touch of mystery, and definitely a romantic feel in the background. If that sounds like a book you’d like then get started on this series soon.
