About the Book
Author: Annee Jones
Genre: Clean Cozy Mystery
Release date: October 14, 2022
Jinx the cat has a bad reputation for always being in the wrong place at the wrong time – and this Halloween turns out to be no different….
His former owners called him “Cursed” – blamed him for their troubles that began occurring after they got him, which is reason he was turned back into the shelter. But Clarissa Lightfoot, owner of the new Cat Café doesn’t believe it and wants to help clear his name, so she brings him to the new café (doubling as a halfway house for homeless animals). – There’s no such thing as a Cursed Cat…. Or is there???
The Cat Café is hosting a costume party fundraiser for Halloween to help homeless animals. After the party, it’s discovered that someone stole $$ from the cash register, and Clarissa is implicated in the crime.
Someone wants her & her new café to go “Poof” and disappear – but who & why?
Can Jinx – along with handsome police officer Cody Shelton – help discover who’s playing tricks on Clarissa this Halloween?

This is a fun short novel for young readers. There are kind people who love cats and want to see as many as possible adopted into good homes. There is a struggling small business trying to fund the adoption efforts. There are talking cats who see some things the humans miss. And there is a mystery that needs to be solved.
Jones has crafted a very readable story with a good plot and fun characters, including cats. There were a couple of romantic oriented implications that might be a bit much for very young readers. Other than that, a fun mystery.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
