Title: Pawsitively Poisonous

We wanted a Halloween themed book and came across this as a freebie.
Yesss a Halloween themed for Halloween!
It is just just over novella length (or what is a novella?), so I do not exactly have a lot to say ;) Also I found it rather underwhelming.
It was under 300. So just a hair over a novella I think? It started off well, but then, like you said, became underwhelming. I found the mystery pretty predictable and the murderer reveal was lackluster.
201 pages :D But yes the mystery and murder was meh. No big surprises or suspense. I also found the Sheriff’s dislike for her so strange. Like sheesh man, focus on the case! Also her rushing into things, I know that is what they do on cozy m’s, but I found it annoying here.
True! I think it has a sneak peek of the next book so it looks longer ;) Agreed. I didn’t get WHY the Sheriff didn’t like her. Maybe because he like-liked her? IDK! I wish there was more of an explanation. I also wished we got more of a backstory on our main character. I didn’t connect with her at all.
I felt really thrown in, I saw that there was a prequel, but those are usually written afterwards, so now I just could not connect. I did not care.
And yes, budding love triangle?
Oooo I for sure see a love triangle coming up.
As it stands now, nah, I would not read more even if they were free.
Yaaaa I’m not sure I would read more either. Book 1 needed more backstory on her and more world-building. I would’ve loved more info on witches. Like...is she the only one in town? What about her parents? Are you born a witch? Do you become one? Does she have any witch friends? I loved her job, but I was hoping for more cats.
Yes where the F were all cats!`? Cat title, cat cover, cat town.
And yes that is info you should work into the story without making it heavy. Now we got nothing
Yesss!!! MORE CATS! I love that this was a cozy, but we need more and it could’ve been weaved in and not lose the cozy aspect.
More cats, more info, more connection, then I could have liked it.
It needed more 100%. I loved the concept and I loved the cover and the title. So cute. But yea….more was needed.
So the conclusion is, more was needed. Dang, I chose this one, bad choice. But yes xmas movie in Nov, bring the cheese
It had such promise! Maybe next Halloween ;) I can’t wait for all the cheese in the next couple months. We got a good line up! I have a good feeling!
I have a good feeling too :D
It’s hard to ruin Xmas stuff ;) Too much joy and love.
The end!! Can’t wait for November and December!
