Melissa's Review:

Claws for Concern is book 9 in the Cat in the Stacks series. This is my first book I've read in this series but I had no issue figuring out what was going on. I'll be honest, I grabbed this because it's a mystery and I've been enjoying the genre lately and also because it featured a cat quite heavily in the story. I'm a sucker, but I'm glad I tried this book out because I really did enjoy it!

We start off meeting Charlie Harris, he's an older gentleman that's semi-retired but helps out at the library each week. He brings his Maine Coon cat, Diesel with him almost everywhere and has a knack at helping solve mysteries. While he's working at the library, a man asks Charlie a few questions and it leads to finding out he's a relative no one knew about. There's a cold case related to Bill Delaney though and it has Charlie questioning if he should offer assistance to his new cousin. While all that is going on we also have a true crime author in contact with Charlie that wants to hear more about the other cases he's helped unravel. Jack Pemberton, the author is intrigued by the cold case and with Charlie's help they're going to figure out who really was behind the murders.

Claws For Concern is an entertaining mystery that had me guessing whodunit until it was revealed. The writing style is a bit different than I'm used to but the story flowed well and I was entertained by Diesel (the cat) while reading. If you enjoy mystery novels with male leads, you might love this series!
