This fourth book in the Cat Latimer series by Lynn Cahoon officially releases November 27, but I was lucky enough to be chosen for reading and reviewing a paperback advance reader’s copy of the book. I love this series, so it was definitely fun to read it before it comes out. There were some fun surprises in this installment that will make cozy readers very happy! I don’t want to say much, you’ll just have to read it when it comes out.
Disclaimer: I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. My opinions are my own and receiving the book had nothing to do with whether I reviewed positively or not.
My Goodreads review:
Slay in Character by Lynn Cahoon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve read all the previous books in this series and knew this one wouldn’t disappoint. I wanted to read it more non-stop than I was able, but maybe it helped me savor it more until the next book comes out. This one releases November 27. I volunteered to read an ARC paperback of the book. My opinions are my own, but I absolutely loved this book!
Cat’s writer resort group was an already-established group of writer friends from CT who quickly embraced the Covington college student, Jessi, who was assigned to the session. Jessi worked at the local old West reality town of Outlaw. When her roommate was killed there, speculation was whether the hit was meant for Jessi, who had family ties and whose mother was friends with local mob family member Dante. Cat promised Dante she’d keep Jessi safe, and now she was worried if she would really be able to keep that promise as a couple more attempts were made on Jessi’s life.
I had sort of guessed who did it, but I wasn’t sure why. The showdown was the good, safe kind, and the killer was taken away. I really liked this group of writers. One of the ladies was like a mother hen to Jessie, whose own mom wasn’t really part of her life very much. As a side story, Seth was working on a nice surprise–it definitely was awesome! You’ll have to read it when it comes out to see what that was! There’s also been a couple of other fun additions to the resort family, something else you’ll have to read and see. As always, I’m already anxious for the next book! I wouldn’t mind seeing Jessi as a recurring character like Dante is.
