A Fun cat Caper Mystery!! Plus #Giveaway

Buckley and Bogey, Cat Detectives, find their next big case with the Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Agency to be their most complicated ever! It all starts when someone hides a mysterious package in their Mom’s antique store – in the middle of the night! Of course, the boys find it, and put it in a nice, safe place, until they can open it . . . and, find the rightful owner. But that’s when a whole bunch of suspicious people show up in St. Gertrude, and every single one of them seems to be after that package! Holy Catnip! Plus, everything happens just when a priceless, jeweled statue collection goes on display at the St. Gertrude Museum. Missing from that collection are two jewel covered cat statues that disappeared almost a hundred and fifty years ago.
But soon Buckley and Bogey wonder how long those statues will stay missing. Because this is one case that really keeps them on their paws! From a trip to the Museum, and to an old church for the Blessing of the Animals; and from dinosaurs to diamonds, they end up dodging shady suspects the whole time. It sure helps to have their friends with them, especially when the bad guys make a beeline for boys. That’s because it becomes very clear, very quick — the priceless cat statues aren’t the only cats those crooks are after! Holy Mackerel!

MY REVIEW-This is a book I had fun reading through. It is for younger ages, my 14 year old sister read it and loved it, but even at my age I thought is was a cute read. I have never read a book before where the animals are the detectives and solve cases faster than the humans:)

This is not the first book in a series so if you haven't read the others, like me, you might be a little bit lost at the beginning. But I quickly got up to speed on who the characters were and what was going on. And yes, the main characters are kitties. Smart as a whip, able to use computers and patrol like nobodies business, house cats. They are hilariously funny and I found myself laughing out loud at their antics because I can see my own kitty acting in the same manner. There were two things I didn't care for. They are totally personal but at one point I almost put the book down because I got frustrated. The older and wiser cat is forever calling the younger one kid. And I understand why, but 6 times on one page was a bit much. The other thing was the "holy" exclamations. Almost every chapter ends with it and almost every chapter begins with it. I am cautious with that word anyways but the author seemed to overuse it at times. Again, nothing major, but these things did get annoying.

Overall a fun book that I think the younger generation will love. Also makes me more suspicious of my kitten and what she is actually doing at times:) Entertaining and cute!
