I love cozy mysteries in general, and of course, I love them even more when they feature cats. Mary Kennedy’s Nightmares Can Be Murder features two lovable cats, Barney and Scout. Even though the cats don’t play a central role in the story, I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced mystery set in beautiful Savannah, Georgia.

From the publisher:

Business consultant Taylor Blake has returned to Savannah, Georgia, to help her sister Allison turn her dream of running an old-fashioned candy store into a reality. Allison is also interested in dream interpretation and invites Taylor to her Friday night Dream Club, where members meet once a week to share and analyze their dreams.

When a local dance instructor, Chico Hernandez, is found dead in his studio, and the murder scene has an eerie resemblance to one of the dreams shared at their meeting, Taylor can’t help but be intrigued. And when her sister, who was briefly involved with the dance teacher, becomes the prime suspect, Taylor and their fellow club members can’t be caught napping. It’s up to them to dream up a solution to the murder before Allison faces a real-life nightmare.

Kennedy’s vivid descriptions of Savannah made me feel like I was taking a little vacation, and the well-developed likeable characters and a plot that keeps you guessing until the very end made this a fun read.

Mary Kennedy has generously offered an autographed copy of her book for one lucky reader.

  1. I write music, poetry and stories for cats (must be read aloud to them) and I know my cats will enjoy hearing this book read to them!

  2. If like to win this book because I enjoy reading new books and I REALLY ENJOY reading about cats whether it’s as a character in a book or an informative educational book about cats!

  3. Love mysteries, especially ones with cats involved. Will share it on facebook. Caan’t wait to get my paws on this read.

  4. I am a mystery aficionado, plus I “keep” four cats (from two-and-one-half-years-old to nineteen) because no one can “own” a cat. I also help with cat rescue and consider myself a “cat person” (so does everyone who knows me). Shared on Facebook.

  5. I’ve loved mysteries since I was a child and this one sounds like worth reading. Just the picture itself looks so cosy that you want to snuggle on your sofa with this book, a purring little friend or two (or three, etc.) and a cup of tea!

  6. I’m a big fan of mystery movies “Hitchcock, Foyles war, Midsummers murders, etc…) so this book would be a great addition to the genre. And I’ll have lots of help from my four legged feline friends.
    they will promptly ensure that the book is well sniffed and covered with cat hair.

  7. Because, people are so quick to think that cats cannot premeditate, plot, scheme, and follow through with a plan. I have 5 little mystery spinners of my own that keep me on my toes. And I love the authors works.its hard to keep my attention in a book but she manages quite well.

  8. i would like to win because i have not read from this author before and it looks great.

  9. Winning a signed copy of this mystery would be an honor, as well as a welcomed
    respite from all the technical books that I have to read on a regular basis.
