Reviewed by:  Tina


It's time for another adventure starring a lie detecting cat named, Elvis who had my heart from the beginning just because of his name. In North Harbor Maine, Sarah are happily re purposing vintage furniture at her shop Second Chance. Together with her lovable cat and trusted employees, Mac who is a Mister fix it and is a private person and her grandmother, Rose and her grandmother's friend, Charlotte and a student named Avery along with her grand mother, Liz.

The employees of Second Chance have made their own make shift detective group called "Charloette's Angels" and have set up shop within Sarah's shop. They have already solved a murder and think they could do it again when there's a soon to be new development on the town's waterfront. Sarah is on the fence on whether to let "the angels" do their investigating and Sarah wonders if yet again she will get suckered in. Nick who is the investigator for the  Medical Examiner and child hood love of Sarah is the grand son of Charlotte does not want any of them involved when Lily who was discovered by Sarah , who ran the bakery is murdered after she refused to sell her bakery in order for the new development to go forward and also trying to discover a trickster who was playing pranks on Lily in her bakery while she was alive.

It soon becomes a tangled web of secrets and lies with secret investors and more suspects and Now it's up to Sarah who feels she was suckered in once again while keeping a watchful eye over "the angels" while they try to find a killer and a prankster.

You can't help but love these fun loving seniors that are a part of "The Angels". The characters are well developed. I would love to have any one of them for my grandmother. All the characters including Sarah and especially the Jeopardy ! loving, lie detecting cat named Elvis help out when solving these crimes and it adds a touch of whimsy. I love how descriptive of a writer Sofie Ryan is and as you read you feel like you are there. This is such a perfect mystery for cat lovers and fans of vintage items. The characters in this story including Elvis are unforgetable.

The beauty of this small close knit town was also not to be forgotten and these heartwarming characters that live there. It speaks highly to me that the writer has a well developed characters, a well thought out mystery making this book a total winner. I can't wait to continue my adventures with Sarah, Elvis and "The Angels" in the next book in this series.
