"Darla Pettistone may have inherited her great aunt Dee's Brooklyn bookstore, but it's the store's mascot--an oversized black cat named Hamlet--who acts like he owns the place. And when someone turns up dead, Hamlet smells something rotten in Brooklyn ... As the owner of Pettistone's Fine Books, Darla is settling nicely into her new life, even reaching an uneasy truce with Hamlet. Unfortunately, when she needs to hire a new clerk, the finicky feline decides to lend a paw to the hiring process. He chases away applicants who don't meet his approval, finally settling on an unlikely candidate: Robert, a book-loving Goth kid who has a secret only Hamlet knows. And Hamlet can't seem to stay out of trouble. One of the bookstore's regular customers, a man who is renovating a local brownstone, claims he's seen Hamlet prowling the neighborhood. When the man's business partner is found dead, Darla discovers that Hamlet may have been the only witness to what could be murder. With the crafty cat's help, she wonders if they just might be able to pounce on a killer"--Publisher.… (mais)

This is a nice, cozy mystery with several viable suspects, keeping me guessing until the end. I personally enjoyed this book more than I did the first of the series. For the series as a whole, I find Hamlet's (the cat's) sleuthing to be a bit difficult to believe. However, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more. ( )

This is a really cute book. I love the way the cat helps with solving the mystery. I really just love the cat, period. The supporting cast is great, too. The heroine (Darla) is a bit dumb at times, and I had trouble connecting with her. She may be the weak link in this book, at least for me. Still, it was a fun read. ( )

I enjoyed this 2nd novel in the series even more than the opening story.

What fun as Darla Pettisone begins interviewing for an additional employee that needs to be a good fit to meet her needs for a part-time employee but must pass critique by shop cat extraordinaire Hamlet. Having worked at several bookstores (independent and chain), I remember the camaraderie of coworkers that are drawn together by their love of books and come for all walks of life. Ali Brandon captures this perfectly as the reader is drawn to hear all the interactions between Darla Pettistone, James T. James, Store Manager and former professor of English literature at one of the area's more prestigious universities, new employee Robert Gilmore, and of course, Hamlet.

One of the regular customers of Pettistone's Fine Books is dead and Hamlet's paw prints are at the scene. Is that just a coincidence? There are clever clues for all mystery fans and especially for fans of bookstore mysteries and ingenious felines.

I can't wait to read the next novel in this series. ( )

this is a black cat bookshop mystery with Darla Pettistone who inherited her Great Aunt's bookstore and the cat (Hamlet) who came with the hat and who seems to know more than he should. One of the store's customers turns up dead and both Darla and Hamlet start to look into it. Darla and her employees are convinced that Hamlet is knocking specific books off the shelves and onto the floor to provide clues to the murderer. This was an ok book.

Darla may own Pettistone’s Fine Books, but a black cat named Hamlet runs the show. If a new applicant doesn’t meet with Hamlet’s approval, Darla doesn’t hire him or her. Hamlet has definite ideas about whom he likes and whom he doesn’t, and woe to him whom Hamlet does not like! A new hire that Hamlet approved seems nice, but Darla is soon having second thoughts. And when one her customer’s is found dead in a brownstone he is renovating, Hamlet may the only witness to murder. Delightful characters in this intricate cozy will entertain you, as you compete with Hamlet to root out the murderer. The clues are there to solve the case, if you are as clever as this cat seems to be! ( )
