what I wanted to read at this time of year It's time for Thanksgiving In Ashton Falls and a bachelor auction has Zoe Donovan's nerves on edge Zoe's mom is organizing the event and all the lovely committee women are staying at their house Zak Zoe's fiancé is out of town but will be back in time to participate in the bachelor auction Zoe moves her dog and two cats to her best friend Elle's

her dead body and thirty plus hungry cats and kittens A hunt for the killer begins although the list of suspects is short Who had motive to kill an old woman and her cats?I found this story appealing fast paced and interesting in all aspects The set up and reveal of the mystery the romance between Zoe and Zac the warmth of family and friends get togethers and all the pets in the story make this a satisfying readI received a complimentary copy of this book from the author I'm voluntarily posting an honest review This is Book 10 in the Zoe Donovan mysteries and it was just as perfect as all the others I fully intended to only start this book and read a few chapters before getting some things done I ended up reading the whole book in one sitting Once I started I couldn't put it down I just love each new adventure with Zoe and Zak and all of their friends which have become characters I consider friends as well I don't want to give any spoilers but I will say that poor Zoe ends up finding another body and herself in the middle of another investigation she just cant stay away She is becoming uite the detective Kathi creates a town that you could live in and characters who are your friends from the first book you read if you aren't reading her books you are missing out It is Thanksgiving time and Zoe has found the body of the local cat womanWhat I enjoyed This series has uick fun reads with ok mysteries The engagement is finally out in the open lots of animalsWhat could have been better view spoilersounds like both the victim and killer needed help mentally and no one seems to care And what was Jasper planning to do with the cats? hide spoiler Turkeys Tuxes and Tabbies is the first book I have read by Kathi Daley and it surely won’t be the last This book is tenth in the Zoe Donovan Mystery series You do not have to read the earlier books in the series to enjoy it; Kathi has provided sufficient information about the characters and circumstances so that this reader found it easy to follow This book was a fun read and with the exception of the murder of course including a lighthearted romance Any book that includes a cat lady is worth reading in my opinion Even if Zoe does find the poor lady um dead with the poor cats very hungry Zoe Donovan runs Zoe’s Zoo an animal rescue and rehab shelter for both domestic and wild animals As such she is often called out when there is an animal crisis which is what took her to the home of Lois Washburn and her cats after a concerned neighbor called about the run amok cats and the noted absence of Lois Unfortunately Zoe had to climb a tree to get into an open window to find freaked out cats and the remains of the somewhat eccentric cat lady; she had been dead for several days apparently the victim of murderAfter Zoe and one of her assistants Tiffany collected 32 cats they noticed three young kittens but not their mother When the vet came to check out the cats he left a special formula for the kittens until their mother was found and to make sure that the kittens’ feeding schedule was maintained Zoe took them with her to care forThen there was that pesky bachelor auction that Zoe thought was a terrific fund raiseruntil she and Zak were engaged and she saw the parade of wealthy perfectly gorgeous women that her mother brought to town to bid on the bachelors With the bevy of beauties staying at Zak’s with her mother Zoe went to her best friend Ellie’s with her dogs cats and the abandoned kittens in tow Could she juggle keeping Zak the fourth most eligible bachelor in the country as her very own fiancé care for all the pets and try to find Lois’ murderer before there were victims?I really enjoyed this book The characters were very well defined – I had no trouble catching up with the existing characters or picturing the people new to or visiting the series They are overall a fun bunch of folks with the possible exception of the oddballs who might possibly be suspectsThe plot was excellent with enough twists and surprises to satisfy the most seasoned cozy mystery and romance reader It was a delightful ride for the most part from beginning to end – in spite of the hair raising adventures of investigation and especially with the bachelor auction I love books that include pets especially the antics of the three babies and the appreciation of the character for pets of all kinds I am sold on Kathi Daley mysteries and have many exciting tales to catch up on in this series I highly recommend Turkeys Tuxes and Tabbies to adults of all ages who enjoy cozy mysteries with dogs cats and romance well written and guaranteed to keep the reader guessing late into the nightWith a grateful heart I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads contest All opinions are my own and no monetary compensation was received for this review Turkeys Tuxes and Tabbies by Kathi Daley is another winner There is a murder mystery to solve plenty of cats to find homes for and Jealous Zoe to controlThe “cat lady” of Ashton Falls has been found murdered in her home Zoe not only has to find homes for all of the felines she also has to try and solve the murder Even though this mystery does not really affect her personally that’s just what Zoe does “Have murder will solve” could be her motto With the help of her friends and family she sets out to do just that The murder is not the only thing that Zoe has to deal with Her mother’s socialite friends have gathered in Ashton Falls for a bachelor auction The main feature of the auction is her fiance Zak Zoe is having a hard time controlling Jealous Zoe because she really does not want Zak going out on a date with anyone else But Zak is the reason many of them are there to bid on such an eligible bachelor Will Zoe be able to handle her jealousy or will the town lose much needed money for a new fire truck?The characters continue to grow from previous books yes I have read every one of Kathi’s books and they are again well developed well rounded and three dimensional When one of her best friends begins acting strangely and then seems to disappear Zoe becomes concerned and sets out to find out what is wrong I was concerned too The characters become friends and you cannot help but care about what happens to them The combination of great character development and small town setting descriptions pull you into the story I found myself forgetting my real life concerns and enjoying the ride I was taking while reading the book I think this is a sign of a good author that is able to create such a complete world that reality disappears and the story takes overI really cannot recommend this book as well as the other books in this series and Kathi’s other series enough to all cozy lovers For anyone who enjoys a mystery with small town settings and family and friends this is a must read If you enjoy holiday themed books you will really enjoy this book I’m looking forward to the next book in the series 4 out
