A Purrfect Alibi by Leighann Dobbs

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am discussing "
A Purrfect Alibi"  the third installment in the "The Oyster Cove Guesthouse Mystery Series" by Leighann  Dobbs and it is one of my favourite series!
Print Length: 223 pages
Publisher: Bookouture (September 18 2019)

Fortune tellers and mediums have descended on the Oyster Cove Guesthouse, determined to solve the mystery of local seafarer Jedediah Biddeford’s murder 300 years ago... especially if it leads them to the treasure he buried on the guesthouse grounds. New owner Josie Waters has suddenly got bigger problems than burning the breakfasts: she’s up to her elbows in tarot cards and tea leaves…

When one of the mediums is found dead with an ominous note nearby, everything points to Jedediah’s ghost being the culprit. Suddenly, Josie finds that the fate of her guesthouse depends on not one murder but two, and she’s not going to rely on a crystal ball for answers. Despite the fact that cookbooks and candlesticks keep mysteriously falling off tables, Josie is sure there’s no such thing as ghosts. But guesthouse cats Nero and Marlowe know better…

Aided by her mom and eccentric family friend Millie, Josie sets out to prove the identity of the killer without summoning any spirits. Luckily Nero and Marlowe know the truth about ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night and they are on the case! Can they make Josie realize she is scratching up the wrong tree before the killer strikes again?
The protagonist Josie is a likable, fun main character, with quirky supporting characters her mother Rose, her BFF Millie (prior owner of guesthouse) the cats Nero and Marlowe. I enjoyed this installment the most I think as the ghost of Jed was introduced and several mysteries were tied up nicely.  I was drawn in from the get go.  I love cats most of all and ones that help solve the murder and you know their conversations so who wouldn’t love that.

The mystery was well written with plenty of twists and turns and had a steady pace. I didn’t figure out whodunit until it was revealed at the end; although I did suspect them of being shady in a previous book.  

I enjoyed this book and recommend to my friends and any fan of Leighann Dobbs.

I requested and received an advanced reader copy from Bookouture and Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my OWN.
