This start of a new series offers an engaging cast of human characters and two appealing, magically inclined felines. Kathleen is a likable, believable heroine and the magical cats are amusing. The rather large cast of characters could have used a bit of trimming, as it’s a bit difficult to keep them all straight. While the mystery plotting is a little thin, the meandering pace allows Kelly to build a solid foundation for what could be, in time, a very charming series.

Librarian Kathleen Paulson has relocated to Mayville Heights, Minn., from Boston in order to oversee the restoration of the town’s library. A run-in with the pompous director of the annual music festival — whom she finds dead the following morning — makes her a prime suspect in his death. As she works to clear her name, she discovers that the two cats who followed her home from an abandoned homestead have extraordinary abilities that prove quite useful when clues are hard to come by.
