I love cozy mysteries about fairs, festivals and competitions and this one is one of my new favorites. Especially because I knew one of my favorite new fictional cats, Quincy was in it. Chase, with the urging of her assistant's granddaughter and Chase's friend,Julie, Chase aquires a booth at the Paul Bunyan Harvest festival displaying and selling her scrumptious dessert bars. Quincy has his own ideas when Chase brings him with her to the week long festival to stay in vetrainarian's clinic who is also a friend and love interest to Chase, Mike Ramos.
Quincy manages to eat his way through most of Chase's inventory with Chase and assistant, Anna rushing to bake more to keep up. There are many contests and competitions taking part in the festival. One such competition is the Butter Sculpting Competition. When one of the competitors is discovered by Quincy when he ventures in there to pig out on some butter murdered with a sculpting dowel sticking out of his ear. Vetrainarian Mike is soon taken in to the custody of the police under suspicion of murder. With the theft of a diamond studded cat collar, a part of a kitty costume contest and another murder at the festival. Chase scrambles to find a connection and a deadly killer.
The perspective of Quincy was a delight to read, his thoughts on his surroundings and his strong will to escape just to aquire some delicious morsels from the festival vendors had me in stitches. Sweet treats, a fat cat and murder make this mystery a winner. Very entertaining and fast paced plot. Nothing beats a setting for a cozy mystery of a festival with not so friendly competitions where there's murder. Perfect for cat lovers, anyone who craves delicious desserts and a murder mystery. I can't wait to read and review the next in this charming series.
