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.
