Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wished your cat could talk to you? If so, allow my story to be your cautionary tale.

My aunt Lavender is in danger, and it's up to me and my reluctant familiar to save her.

Unfortunately, the sassy cat isn't big on the whole concept of teamwork.

With no idea where Lavender is and our leads in short supply, we turn to an archivist who might have the answers to our questions. But when he turns up dead under suspicious circumstances, our last glimmer of hope goes dark.

Unless...the secrets to my aunt's disappearance are tangled up in the famed archivist's sudden death. The police are quick to write it off as a tragic accident, leaving it up to Selene and I to crack the case and discover his link to Aunt Lavender.

I just hope we aren't too late.

Mean Girl Familiar, MIA Family, Dead End Leads

This second volume of the series continues with the intriguing disappearance of Cora's aunt Lavendar and soon the first lead that the characters have had in some time is found dead. The joke withe Selene the inherited familiar being "sassy" is getting pretty tired. Sarcasm is different than mean spirited and this cat feels actively antagonistic to Cora which isn't as enjoyable for me at least. I actually notice that I am more interested in the secondary characters or even absent characters (like Lavendar) than the main protagonist. I am curious about the overarching story of Lavendar and what is actually going on in regards to her absence and so am continuing the series for this reason as well as Amanda's excellent narration. This is an easy listen but again for me the Selene vs Cora thing feels a little played out and over done and took up too much of the story for me. Totally will not be an issue for others I am sure and some might enjoy that dynamic. I usually love Danielle for her humor and snark, but as I said for me this doesn't feel playful just unkind.

Whiny voice

Garrett wrote a wonderful story and Ronconi almost ruins it with her high pitched whiny voice. ugh!
The voice she does for Celine is her saving grace because it's funny and cute sounding.

Good Addition to the Series

I enjoyed this book, even though it was a slow start. Aunt Lavender's plight was much more intriguing than the murder or even Cora's personal relationships. This book read more like a first in series with all the time spent "setting the scene." I look forward to the next book that I hope spends more time on the Lavender dilemma.

So much fun

This series is so much fun! Cora, and her cat familiar Selene, find themselves solving yet another mystery in their small, magical town. This book has an enjoyable cast of characters who never seem to lack for getting into shenanigans.

A lovely light magic cozy

This one is even better than the first one. Celine is my favorite character. Who would not love a magical, talking, snarky, arrogant feline?

Selene’s song

After listening to book 1, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue with this series. But after giving book 2 a listen (which is definitely better) I’m glad I gave the series another go. Selene can be quite snarky & demanding but Cora’s new familiar comes through when it counts. Now if only they can find Lavender.
