MOBI Æ A Magical Cats Mystery ↠ Sofie Kelly

Security system that comes with it Kathleen’s life has been completely disrupted Even Owen and Hercules have been affected since their favorite human doesn’t seem to have a spare moment to make their favorite fish crackers or listen to Barry ManilowBut when Kathleen stops by the library late I need to stop reading contemporary cozy mysteries I keep trying though because I worry that it's internalized sexism that keeps me from liking or appreciating them But I'm coming to understand that I bristle at the constructed bubble of safety that the crime occurs in but doesn't actually threaten It's not a fantasy I enjoy or believe in or find worthwhile either in real life or in the world of the story I find too much in the narrative that undermines it the way protagonists undermine law or order in their own investigations; the way crime is not something that leaves a lingering effect on the community; the way victims are freuently people who are not missed and so that allows the cast of recurring characters to get on with their lives until the next murder And I get that cozy mysteries aren't meant to deal with any of that that the crimes featured are specifically constructed to avoid touching cyclic violence or the systematic forces of poverty and racism that dominate the way people deal with the criminal justice systemBut I can't let it go But I keep going back to cozy mysteries because I want to read less gore and less exploitation and sensationalism in my crime fiction and because I want to make sure I'm not just being sexist in recoiling from a woman dominated subgenreI Just But nearly every contemporary cozy I read just whips me up into a hostile frenzyMagical clue finding cats? Yes I'm down that I like these cats and the magical digestive systems that allow them to eat tons of human food I find that charming I like themWhat's not charming? The librarian protagonist when building a case to her detective boyfriend that she suspects someone could be a thiefmurderer includes in her reasoning that the person in uestion checked out A Coffin for Dimitrios and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd Eric Ambler and Agatha Christie Mystery classics what the fuckIn real life I'd hope nothing short of the Patriot Act and even THAT but I recognize that the Patriot Act is law and whatever would get a librarian to be that shitty to a think reading mysteries makes someone suspicious among other things but SERIOUSLY b voluntarily and proactively violate a patron's privacy by without court order without the law enforcement office even reuesting it reveal to a law enforcement officer what a patron checked outNothing Cozy About ThatAlso I thought the mystery was boring The characters are all right if bland the worldbuilding is nice and I like the cats

BOOK Faux Paw A Magical Cats Mystery

Faux Paw A Magical Cats Mystery #7 One night and finds the curator sprawled on the floor and the exhibition’s most valuable sketch missing it’s suddenly time to canvass a crime scene Now Kathleen her detective boyfriend Marcus and her clever cats have to sniff out a murderous thief before anyone else has a brush with death  Well the mystery solving portion of this took a turn for the ridiculous about two thirds of the way through this one I also enjoy how much Kathleen always manages to figure out via Google Just honestly never visit this town You will inevitably be unceremoniously murdered probably in some way tangentially connected to the library It's a good thing I'm totally not here for the mystery aspect of these I guessThe series continues to be charming and I continue to really like the cast of characters This one's a solid addition to the series view spoilerAnd I was thinking about making this one three stars instead of four until I got to the end and there was no mortal peril Not even a little bit I was pleased hide spoiler
