I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

How to Paint a Cat by Rebecca M. Hales

How to Paint a Cat - Rebecca M. Hale
  Another wonderful installment in the Cat and Curios series.  I love this series.  This time the niece solves a murder along with newspaperman Hoxton Finn.  As she, Rupert, and Isabella travel through San Francisco following the clues left by James Lick, she discovers more about her uncle and the history of San Francisco.  This time the history is a little more recent--the 1920's and 1930's.  The usual suspects show up--Monty (will he ever leave her alone?), Dilly, and Sam.  I particularly loved how Isabella and, on a lesser scale, Rupert take on more human characteristics in that they try to communicate with the niece.  She does not always understand but they do try.  I love the asides given in their voices.  I also like following the trail to whatever her uncle wants her to find.  I have to admit I would never think the murderer was who it turned out being but then I didn't think Monty would ever become the mayor of San Francisco.  His will probably be a very interesting and unique mayoralty.  I cannot wait for the next book.
