Gone but Not Furgotten: 09/19/22
Gone but Not Furgotten by Cate Conte and Amy Melissa Bentley (Narrator) (2022) is the sixth book in the Cat Cafe mystery series. This murder mystery is tied up with a difficult topic — cat hoarding. Maddie James finds a known cat hoarder dead at the bottom of her stairs when she and Cass go to offer help.
The murderer to me was pretty obvious. Sometimes that happens. A character walks onto the page and just as the murderer vibe. That's what happened here, although from reviews I've read, the murderer's identity was a surprise to some readers. Maybe I read too many mysteries!
For me, the difficult part of reading (or my case, listening to) this book, was the descriptions of the cats in the victim's basement and the effort put into capturing them. I'm grateful that the hoarding situation was taken to some extremes I've seen. But I still kept filling in the unwritten details.
