Blurb ~*~

When a magical presence is detected around a recent string of feline slayings, Libby, an enchantress, is determined to discover who is behind the odd deaths. But being a witch gifted by the Goddess won’t protect her from the talented warlock the Coven sends to assist her. Kale weaves a spell more powerful than any she’s ever seen–and he’s sexy as sin. But why he’s even needed for such a simple mission is beyond her.

While having some muscle around can’t hurt her investigation, fighting her growing attraction for Kale is worse than a hex, especially considering she knows he—and their Coven—are hiding something from her. When she turns up clues that point to something far more sinister than slaughtered cats, though, the elusive warlock isn’t the her only concern. She now has a political rebellion on her hands, too. And when the truth about who she really is begins to surface, the only person Libby can trust is herself.

4 Star Review ~*~
Okay, as most of you are aware, I am a big fan of Stacey Kennedy's and have really enjoyed all her books to date.  The Cat's Meow is probably my least favorite so far, but I still enjoyed it.  I love stories with witches and magic so I was really excited to read it.  I can't put my finger on exactly what didn't work for me, but something was lacking enough that it didn't rate 5 stars, but not lacking so much that I would give it less than 4 stars.

Libby was an interesting character. Less than perfect ~ which is a nice change ~, a bit mouthy, witty, and still a strong and capable woman who cares for her friends. Kale, while seXy and intriguing, really felt like an unknown at times because he keeps a lot of secrets from Libby for awhile.  Things come together in the end, which is a little predictable yet still enjoyable.

Overall, I am looking forward to whatever else Stacey Kennedy might be bringing us as her voice and style are unique with each series as the characters take over.  If you like witches, magic, and intrigue, definitely pick up The Cat's Meow and let the wild ride commence.  It's a fun story that while I can't rave at 5 stars, I didn't want to end.

About the Author:
Stacey Kennedy is an urban fantasy lover at heart, but she also enjoys losing herself in dark and sensual worlds. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who gave her a happily-ever-after.
