The whole town seems suspicious of what is known as the "Bad Luck Cat" making his way across the town and residents are in fear of the cat crossing their path and bringing them bad luck but not Sabrina. On the contrary, she has never been superstitious of anything supernatural except maybe the lady that owns the antique store who thinks Sabrina is a witch and not just because of her name.
The "Bad Luck Cat" leads Sabrina to the discovery of a dead body and it turns out to be Aunt Rowe's deadbeat cousin, Bobby Joe Flowers, he had a list of enemies a mile long and loved the women. Not so good for Aunt Rowe is that she and Bobby fought before his death and now Aunt Rowe has become a number one suspect in his murder. Bobby has claimed to be her brother making Aunt Rowe furious.
Sabrina on on the other hand is in a dilemma, with a appointment with a famous agent to talk about her book and helping prove her aunt Rowe is innocent and attending to her new friend a "Bad Luck Cat" Sabrina names "Hitchcock" who Sabrina can't help but come to love. Hitchcock is on the case along with Sabrina, clawing at the bit to find a killer before Sabrina's luck runs out.
I loved Sabrina from the first page, It's so great to be able to relate to a character and we seem a lot alike with our love for writing and certain "Bad Luck Cats". Sabrina has this determined attitude that I find is also a trait we share. Sabrina is a great ameteur sleuth. Hitchcock and Sabrina make a perfect human and feline crime fighting pair and this was a great beginning to a series.
Hitchcock will become a fan favorite with his sneakiness and determination to get out of Sabrina's cottage to find more clues. Kay Finch's writing is fast paced, exciting and the story is engaging. Black Cat Crossing is a fun thrill ride with a "Bad Luck Cat" that becomes Sabrina's good luck charm.
