Cat Shining Bright: A Joe Grey Mystery (Joe Grey Mystery Series)
By Shirley Rousseau Murphy
New life is infused into the series in this 20th volume - literally. Joe Grey and his lady Dulcie have a litter of three precious kittens. After some months of breathless waiting, Joe, Dulcie, and their humans discover that, yes, the kittens can talk, too, just like Joe Grey, Dulcie, and all their special feline friends. These three amazing kittens will keep their ancestors' legacy alive, especially calico Courtney, who clearly has a very special path laid out for her.
Though this book focuses heavily on the kittens and the developing relationships of some of the humans, there is still a mystery to be solved! Of course, all the talking cats play key roles in solving it. Not only is a ring of cunning car thieves active in the area, but there have been two murders that seem to be connected somehow. It will take all of Joe's cunning and stealth to uncover what's really going on at Molena Point.
This is another delightful installment in the series, especially given the arrival of the spunky kittens. The plot is well-paced, keeping the reader turning the pages. While this book can be read as a standalone, it's better to have read the full (and long!) series to understand the fullness of the relationships. However, this one is a decent starting-point for new readers, as it contains quite a bit of explanation about origins of the talking cats. Recommended!
