"Cozy Mystery with an extra dose of feline"

Fresh Fiction Review

A Whisker of a Doubt

Mystery Amateur Sleuth | Mystery Cozy

If you are fond of felines, you won’t want to miss reading A WHISKER OF A DOUBT. In this Cat Cafe Cozy Mystery by Cate Conde, Maddie discovers a man’s body in the neighborhood where the feral cat volunteers have been encountering some major resistance. The investigation into the murder brings a lot of secrets into the light.

This is an excellent cozy mystery with an added dose of all things feline. I enjoyed learning a few things about feral cats and those who are their heroes. Reading the little stories about some of the cats was also enjoyable.

The author did a great job of keeping me guessing up to the very end. I thought I knew who did it several times, but then new evidence would come along to cause me to change my mind. The small town, island setting also added to the plot.

Another thing that I enjoyed about the book is that it is clean. There are no sex scenes (although it is alluded to) and no foul language. Being a mystery, there is violence, but it is not graphic.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries.

Learn more about A Whisker of a Doubt


It's promising to be a picture-purrfect Christmas at New England's favorite cat cafe . . . but instead of jolly old st. Nick, residents are being visited by murder. The fourth in a mystery series from author Cate Conte, A Whisker of a Doubt is filled with felines and crime.

The holiday season on Daybreak Island is a mixed bag for Maddie James. On the one hand, her Christmas spirit is in the doghouse after a break-up. On the other, she’s busy enough that she doesn’t have to pretend to be merry. Business at her cat cafe is booming, and Maddie’s care-taking of a feral cat colony in one of the area’s wealthiest communities only helps her bottom line.

But tensions between the homeowners and animal activists are escalating to catastrophic levels...and before long a body is found dead in a snowbank. To prove that her accused friend is innocent of the crime, Maddie will have to prowl the island for clues to the real killer before everyone on the island goes completely hiss-terical--and more than nine lives are lost.
