With Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty
Many happy greetings fellow biblio-cats
Hey guys, how's your week been so far?
I've been buying book aftur book, I added 10 to my library in just the last week, I've listened to 5 so far. There's no stopping me now, I'm on a roll! MOL
But this is my new dilemma...
So I've gone from zero to light-speed in the book buying department in the last couple of weeks and to be honest I feel exhausted. This is my 'think-tank' basket at the top of the stairs where I go to mull things offur, take five, and stare at the paintings on the wall, in fact it's like my furry own mini gallery.
So while I do a spot of daydreaming and napping, art gazing and then some more daydreaming, I think it's time to show mew this weeks book.
This week on book reviews with Amber, I'm sharing
Here's the book blurb courtesy of Amazon UK:
After giving up her career as a Texas trophy wife, 28-year-old Lee McKinney finds herself in a Michigan resort town, keeping the books for her Aunt Nettie's luxury chocolate business. But she soon finds that her new life isn't all truffles and bonbons...
Clementine Ripley, the defense attorney everyone loves to hate, is throwing a party that calls for several thousand dollars worth of custom chocolates--some made in the image of her champion cat. Lee jumps at the job, but sweet success takes a bitter turn when someone adds and extra ingredient--cyanide--to one of their delicious chocolates and it finds its way into Ms. Ripley's mouth. Now it's up to Lee to figure out who tampered with Aunt Nettie's recipe before they find themselves behind not-so-chocolate bars.
INCLUDES YUMMY CHOCOLATE TRIVIA!

Ok, this book was furst published in 2002 and is part of a series, with this novel being No: 2. The reason I didn't start on numero uno is because this is the only book in this cozy mystery series with a cat, that I can see. And as it was published a while ago I'm sure many of mew will have read it already.
What I thought... it was actually a really mellow vibe when listening to it, furry unhurried and quite laid-back, which given my current state of uber busyness was pawesome. The story is centered around chocolate and a chocolate shop, which the P.A. said made her want to eat chocolate aftur listening to all the yummy descriptions throughout the story. So if mew're on a diet stay away from this, as it will be akin to chocolate torture.
Ofurall without spoilerizing anything fur mew, as mew know how much I hate that, this was a fun cozy mystery and I would most certainly recommend it . My only gripe is there's no more books in the series with cats, so fur me it was a standalone volume, and mew know how much a like a saga long series! MOL
Paperback copy: 240 pages
I hope mew enjoy this book if mew do take the plunge and buy it... and if mew've read it already, tell me did mew think?
Sadly it's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and we'll be here again with a surprise fur mew on Friday.
Happy reading or listening
