Review: Ghostly Paws by Leighann Dobbs
I enjoy cozies with a paranormal twist. This is the first book in a series that I see the potential in. The characters are likeable and the book light and fun.
What I found frustrating though, was Willa. I liked her and yet, she drove me nuts. She would obsess on a suspect to the exclusion of the facts, started off with an antagonistic attitude to the sheriff investigating the case with no real basis and jumped in with a dramatic reveal scene where she accused the wrong person. I hope to see more development of her character as the series progresses.
I also had an issue with her friend Pepper (owner of the local tea shop and a fun character otherwise) dosing people with herbs without their knowledge or consent.
Yet, I did enjoy the other elements of the story and felt that I will like the series more as it evolves. There are elements of magic that have yet to be explored and a cast of characters which are interesting and engaging. I also want to see more of the mysterious cats and their secrets. So: not my favorite but hopefully a good launching place for more to enjoy in the future.
