Double Booked for Death

As the new owners of Pettistone's Fine Books, Darla Pettistone is determined to prove herself a worthy successor to her late great-aunt Dee...and equally determined to outwit Hamlet, the smarter-than-thou cat she inherited along with the shop. Darla's first store event is a real coup: the hottest bestselling author of the moment is holding a signing there. But when the author meets an untimely end during the event, it's ruled an accident-until Hamlet digs up a clue that seems to indicate otherwise...

Black cat Hamlet joins the ranks of my favorite cozy cats; I love his attitude!!! This is the first book in the series, set in a bookstore, one of my favorite locales for a cozy series. It's pretty cool how even though the book is set in Brooklyn, it still has that small town atmosphere as the tenants of the brownstone have developed deep friendships, especially Darla and Jake. I also really enjoyed little girl Callie, so spunky and such a cute young book lover. Can't wait for book #2!
