I enjoy this series very much. I pre-order and PAY for all my books. I actually purchase both the kindle and audible versions. I am stating this since the majority of the current reviews have received free copies of the book.
I thought the 10th in the series was ok. It seemed that the interactions were mainly with the cats. The mystery story dragged a lot. The most enjoyable parts were when the story didn't focus on solving the murder. True it is a mystery series. But that doesn't mean someone always has to be murdered. There are other mysteries, that are just as interesting.
It's also rather annoying that Kathleen keeps repeatedly stating that she needs to tell Marcus about the cats. This had been going on for a few books. Over all the character development between Kathleen and Marcus lacked in this book.
The book is fun, but the typical formula. Which wouldn't be so bad, if the character development would have been there.
The book is ok. There are some really good parts. The parts with Ruby photographing the cats. Roma and Eddie's entire pre-wedding and wedding sections.
I will still continue to read the series. As Kathleen, Hercules, Owen, and the rest are wonderful characters. I love visiting Mayville Heights.
