Synopsis: Two magical tarot cats and their tenderhearted human outwit a cruel criminal in South Florida
Most days, Ruby Sparks feels like the sign that says Tarot Card Reader Extraordinaire should say Tarot Card Reader Barely Competent. But as challenging as it is to take care of her half-sister's new age shop—and her growing menagerie of mystically inclined pets—Ruby never worries that she's bitten off more than she can chew . . . until a customer wants her to divine the truth about a murder.
When her own life is threatened with a double dose of danger, Ruby begins to wonder if she's being played for a fool. Luckily, she has Aphelia and Brandon—sibling black cats with a talent for tarot—and a feisty pitbull friend who all lend a paw in collaring the culprit before Ruby finds herself taking her final cat nap.

About the Author: DIANE A.S. STUCKART is the New York Times bestselling author of the Black Cat Bookshop Mystery series. She's also the author of the award-winning Leonardo da Vinci historical mysteries, as well as several historical romances and numerous short stories. Her Tarot connection is even more sprawling. She's been an on-and-off student of Tarot since she was a teenager, though she confesses to being more of a collector of decks than a reader. She will, however pull out the cards for a friend on occasion.
Diane has served as Chapter President of the Mystery Writers of America Florida chapter, is a member of the Cat Writers' Association, and also belongs to the Palm Beach County Beekeepers Association. She lives west of West Palm Beach with her husband, dogs, cats―including the real-life Brandon Bobtail and Ophelia―and a few beehives.

"[Stuckart] writes throughout with charm and warmth. Anyone with a pet will enjoy."―Kirkus Reviews
"Lighthearted and quirky, this will enchant cozy readers and animal lovers."―Publishers Weekly

My Review: This was my first cozy mystery but I can say that it will not be my last! I really enjoyed how the Cats told the story it was totally something new in the way that I have read a story and man did it work out well.  I really think that this author might have interviewed a few cats and dogs to get this one done folks!! The use of the tarot shop was a great addition to the story as well. Ophelia and Brandon were great characters (these are the cats btw)  The use of detective cats was a great choice to tell this story!!  I will say that the opening part of this one was all stress while the cats are trying to get out of a box and then seperated. But there are some really slow parts after that.  But once the story picks up again it is totally nail bitting and edge of your litter box read!
