The Valentine's Cat Burglar (Beatrice Young Cozy Cat Mysteries Book 13) by Alannah Rogers

The Valentine's Cat Burglar (Beatrice Young Cozy Cat Mysteries Book 13) by [Rogers, Alannah]
Valentine's Day is set to be a very special day indeed for new couple Beatrice and Matthew, in their mid-sixties and back together after forty years apart. And it's going to be magical for their small town of Ashbrook, New Hampshire, too. A massive skating party is planned and the whole town is excited!

But, then a traveling medium predicts that the party will end in disaster. A scary editorial is printed in the local newspaper. And there's a rash break-in involving arson. The whole town is on edge and it seems that the town's heroic effort to rebuild is going to, perhaps literally, go up in smoke.

Beatrice has to put aside managing the Cozy Cat Cafe, dodging rumors of an upcoming run for mayor, and planning her wedding to put her amateur detective hat back on. Thankfully, her four crime-fighting cats are always there to back her up. And this time, the most underrated of Beatrice's feline troupe might just be the one to save the day.

This is the thirteenth book in the Beatrice Young cozy cat mystery series. It can be read as a standalone but is extra delightful when enjoyed in sequence. This novella is a clean mystery with no graphic violence, sex, or swearing.  (Summary via Amazon)

Even though the Beatrice Young Cozy Cat Mystery series are novella's they are packed with great stories.  And the best part is that you can read one of them in one sitting  !!!

The Valentine's Cat Burglar is just in time for Valentine's Day and if anyone knows about LOVE, it is the main character Beatrice.  She has reconnected with her old flame Matthew who is now her fiance and all they want to do is have a romantic Valentine's Day together at the outside skating party organized for the town.  But someone has other ideas for the two of them as well as the entire town threatening to burn the town down !!

Beatrice seldom goes anywhere without her very intuitive felines and when the cats start acting strangely during the party, Beatrice and Matthew follow the cats to a dark residential part of town ..... 

What happens next, you have to read for yourself !!!  You won't be able to turn the pages fast enough !!!

Alannah Rogers knows how to tell a story and pack it full of entertainment.  Doesn't matter if the story is 70 pages long or 400, you will be engrossed in it from the first word until the last sentence.  I highy encourage you to check her books out !!!
