Book Review: Petectives: Christmas Party by Robert J. Smith


Blurb: Christmastime is here and cat detectives Yoshi and Gatsby are back in this holiday whodunnit! Someone not filled with the holiday spirit is trying to kill an obnoxious dog and the Petectives are on the case. While conducting their latest investigation, Gatsby's also planning a Christmas Eve blowout for the neighborhood animals. Yoshi is dead set against the party but he may be able to use the festivities to unmask a would be killer and teach Gatsby what Christmas is all about. Throw in a canine love triangle and a cute orphan kitten and you've got the recipe for one riveting Yuletide affair. The Petectives are throwing a Christmas party and you don't want to miss it!

My Review: Could this book possibly be any more adorable??? I don't think so. Yoshi and Gatsby are on the case once again as someone has made an attempt on the life of a big-mouthed neighborhood dog by leaving him a slice of bologna laced with liquid fertilizer. (It smelled funny but he ate it anyways. Hey, it was bologna!!!) The feline detectives are on their own except for a quick visit by the cat sitter because their family is away for the holiday, and Gatsby wants to throw a Christmas party for the neighborhood pets. Yoshi is dead set against the idea until he realizes it would be the perfect setting to unmask a killer.

Stray kitten Chuck is an absolute scene-stealer in this book, and Gatsby's version of the Christmas story had me howling with laughter. Don't miss this one!
