Once Upon A Book – Charlee Rae's Book Reviews

"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"

Paws For Alarm (Dead Letter Mysteries) by Marian Babson

I rated this book 2 out of 5 stars.

A summer in England sounds like a great idea for the Harper family– and the house exchange makes it so affordable. Now they’ve swapped their New England home for a lovely cottage in a village near London. Why, the house even comes with a cat, a shy marmalade named Esmond! Everything seems purrfect…until someone tries to kill Mr. Harper.

I enjoyed the book for the most part. The only real issue I had was with the main character. I would go from disliking her, to starting to warm up to her, to disliking her again. I also would refrain from calling this a cat cozy as it isn’t. The cat has very little to do with the book and almost makes you wonder why it’s titled as it is. It’s not a book that will stick with you, but if you are in need of a quick read, it does the job.
