Review and Blog Tour for Black Cat and the Secret in Dewey’s Diary by Elaine Faber.

REVIEW

*** 5 stars

As a cat lover and also an author who writes mysteries featuring cats, I truly enjoyed this book. Even though it was the first one of this series that I’ve read, I had no trouble keeping up with the storyline because of the way the backstory was smoothly introduced. I loved the descriptions of Germany and Austria and the historical tidbits about World War II (this author also writes a World War II cozy series). The story was a fun puzzle and even contained a treasure hunt. The interplay between the two cats, Black Cat and Angel, was cute.There were moments of sadness when Angel got hurt, and Kimberlee was questioned by the police as a suspect in Mrs. Herman’s murder.  I would recommend this book and hope to read more of this series and other books by Elaine Faber. Check out the blog tour and giveaway below.

In this dual tale of mystery, lost treasure, and riddles, while Black Cat narrates the exciting events in Fern Lake, Kimberlee discovers a cryptic clue in a diary about a hidden treasure, and heads to Austria to solve the puzzle.

When Kimberlee and Dorian arrive in Austria, they attract the attention of a stalker determined to steal the diary in hopes the clues will lead him to the treasure first. On a collision course, it is inevitable that Kimberlee and the stalker meet in Hopfgarten.

Black Cat and Angel’s lives are endangered with the arrival of Kimberlee’s grandmother in Fern Lake, and the return of a man presumed dead for twenty-five years. With both arrivals, emotional and financial difficulties loom for Kimberlee’s family. Since their return to Fern Lake, Angel seems reluctant or unable to adjust to her new home. Does she regret leaving Texas and Grandmother? And, when the opportunity arises, will she decide to leave Black Cat and Fern Lake?
