Having thoroughly enjoyed ‘January Black Ice’, the first in Kauffman’s Cat Collier mystery series last year, I started this second instalment feeling a little sorry that I had left it so long.
‘February White Lies’ picks up the story of Cat and her boyfriend Carter a short while after the end of the first story. Members of their families and friends return as regular characters, alongside new people of interest in a new mystery.
Kauffman’s characters are natural and familiarly drawn, and her writing is comfortable and easy to read. The different characters’ stories are interwoven neatly enough to work in a novella, but without the events of the plot feeling contrived or relationships overly orchestrated.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, so I’m going to commit to reading ‘March Blues’ in the coming month.
This excellent little mystery has been awarded a Gold Acorn.
