Mystic Notch Series by Leighann Dobbs
Mystic Notch Series
This is one of my favorite Leighann Dobbs series. A reporter turned bookshop owner by the name of Willa is the main character. She has an amazing cat, Pandora, who along with her gang of feline friends, help Willa get out of the trouble that she invariably gets into. Willa and Pandora are visited in the shop quite frequently by ghosts of authors from centuries ago. Customers will come into the store and a ghost or two will choose that moment to cause mischief.
Ghosts, cats and quirky small town characters fill this cozy mystery sprinkled with magic and a little romance. Join middle-aged bookstore owner Willa Chance, a secretive ghost, and the cats of Mystic Notch as they try to solve three murders while ensuring a mystical journal doesn't fall into the wrong hands. Willa must find the killer of an annoying ghost while Pandora searches for a magical cat to bring into the fold. Pandora and the cats are forced to figure out who stole a three hundred year old artifact that has evil powers. A mysterious old recipe book, two star crossed ghosts and a gaggle of mystery solving cats make the fifth book in the Mystic Notch series a fun and twisty read.
