Beach Cat Blues by Alison O’Leary
With thanks to Red Dog Press and Alison O’Leary for the preview copy of Beach Cat Blues.
Aubrey does love to be beside the seaside. All those rock pools to muck about in, the caves to explore, endless food opportunities from the beach huts. Life is good. And it’s even better now that his best mate Vincent has joined the Goodman household.
But the sun slips behind a cloud when a body is found near Lilac Tree Lodge, the care home for the elderly in which Molly Goodman works. Suddenly it doesn’t all seem quite so jolly…
Beach Cat Blues is the third book in the series and the second book that I have reviewed. You can read my review of the second book, Country Cat Blues and an interview with the author here.
Aubrey, a cat with a habit of being in the wrong place at the right time and a murder by the sea, this book is perfect holiday reading.
In Beach Cat Blues, Aubrey and his family, Jeremy, Molly and Carlos have moved to the seaside. Once again there is a mystery for Aubrey to solve. Aubrey, the detective cat is back in his third cosy mystery and it was a very enjoyable read. These characters have become friends to me and it is good to know the next instalment in their journey. Beach Cat Blues includes the same ingredients that I enjoyed about the last book: interesting characters, some good, some bad and an element of a twist at the end. The story flows well, the action is page-turningly good and the ending is satisfying. Thank you, Alison, I look forward to reading about more of Aubrey’s adventures!

About the Author:
I was born in London and spent my teenage years in Hertfordshire where I spent large amounts of time reading novels, watching daytime television and avoiding school. Failing to gain any qualifications in science whatsoever, the dream of being a forensic scientist collided with reality when a careers teacher suggested that I might like to work in a shop. I don’t think she meant Harrods. Later studying law, I decided to teach rather than go into practice and have spent many years teaching mainly criminal law and criminology to young people and adults.
I enjoy reading crime novels, doing crosswords, and drinking wine. Not necessarily in that order.
