To Conjure a Killer is the fourth book in Clea Simon’s charming Witch Cats of Cambridge series, and like the other books in the series, the combination of mystery with a touch of the paranormal is irresistible. And is this not the most adorable book cover?
Protagonist Becca, a fledgling witch detective and employee at the New Age shop Charm and Cherish, is coming home from her job when she sees a tortoiseshell kitten run down an alley – leading to a dead body, which turns out to be Becca’s former boyfriend. Becca becomes embroiled in the investigation both as a person of interest, and by using her detective skills to try to solve the case. Meanwhile, the little tortie kitten seems to have some powers of her own, much to Becca’s three resident cats’ dismay.
As is the case with all of Clea’s books, her trademark descriptive writing style makes this book a pleasure to read. She excels at writing both human and feline characters that you just can’t help but fall in love with.The cats, including the little tortie, are delightful, each with a very distinct and unique personality, and each lending their mystical gifts to helping Becca solve the murder and clear her name.
If you enjoy feline-centric mysteries, fantasy, and a touch of magic, you will love this book. It can be read as a standalone, but why not treat yourself to the whole series?
