    8. By far, this is the best book out of this series for me I love the detail the author took in writing about the mill and the town I live in a town that had a mill almost like this and it too had a small village along with it This is a great way to introduce our mill history that is now long gone since so much outsourcing and people buying so many products from other seas other than American textiles I myself can remember a time when theses mills were still producing America jobs Sad Anyhow, this [...]

    9. Of the five Cats in Trouble books I ve read so far, this is my favorite I loved the way Sweeney pairs a long forgotten murder with a just now happening murder I was a little skeptical about her inclusion of a ghost cat into a series that, until now, hasn t had any hint of the supernatural You can t just switch genres like that But Boots the Ghost Cat is endearing, and I found that I accepted the little ghost s presence pretty easily once I got into the book These books are light and sweet, good [...]

This was a 10 year old mystery that had never been solved Who is living in the mill Where did the body come from Start out with one murder, but a second occurs This was a beautiful story with people really caring and that made the characters so real Also love the cats being such a big part of the story.

    17. You d think I d have a hard time with this story since I haven t read the first four, but it was easy enough to follow The author has a simple style I didn t mind, though I would have preferred from the main character She was a bit bland, and I think this story would be better if written in third person instead of first The mystery was pleasant, and I loved Boots The main character s cats didn t do much for me Maybe they re interesting in the other books, but they could have been left out of t [...]

    23. Posted from my blog A Different kind of reviewAs planned, I picked up The Cat, The Mill and the Murder shortly after it was released in early May I ve read Leanne Sweeney s mystery books before, and this one didn t disappoint Not only was it a satisfying read with a great mystery and an unexpected last sentence, but the backdrop was a subject near and dear to me, textile mills and textile history Normally, I would buy an e book edition of what I m reading, but seeing that this involved a textile [...]
