REVIEW: Mimi Lee Gets A Clue by Jennifer J. Chow was a cute and fun read. I was looking for a book that would be a change of pace from the books I’ve been reading. Some were serious and some were thrillers and this one was a cozy mystery. I have to admit that I haven’t read any cozy mysteries until now. I loved it!
Jennifer did a great job with her characters. Mimi was fun and a bit of a sleuth with a talking cat named Marshmallow. There were her rich or wanna be rich customers of her pet grooming shop. A mother trying to set her up on blind dates and a lawyer boyfriend named Josh. There were several more quirky characters but, I was able to keep them all straight. That was a plus because I could read and enjoy!
This book is number one in the Sassy Cat Mystery Series. There is a book two called Mimi Lee Reads Between the Lines. When I need a new cozy mystery to lighten up my life, I’ll be reading book two. If you need to lighten up your life, check out the Sassy Cat Mystery Series. You’ll be glad you did.
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. Thank you!
SYNOPSIS: Mimi Lee is in over her head. There’s her new Los Angeles pet grooming shop to run, her matchmaking mother to thwart, her talking cat Marshmallow to tend to—oh, and the murder of a local breeder to solve…now if only Mimi hadn’t landed herself on top of the suspect list.
Mimi Lee hoped to give Los Angeles animal lovers something to talk about with her pet grooming shop, Hollywoof. She never imagined that the first cat she said hello to would talk back or be quite so, well, catty—especially about those disastrous dates Mimi’s mother keeps setting up.
When Marshmallow exposes local breeder Russ Nolan for mistreating Chihuahuas, Mimi steals some of her cat’s attitude to tell Russ off. The next day the police show up at Hollywoof. Russ has been found dead, and Mimi’s shouting match with him has secured her top billing as the main suspect.
Hoping to clear her name and save the pups Russ left behind, Mimi enlists help from her dreamy lawyer neighbor Josh. But even with Josh on board, it’ll take Mimi and Marshmallow a lot of sleuthing and more than a little sass to get back to the pet-grooming life—and off the murder scene.
