Caught Dead Handed
Caught Dead Handed | Carol J. Perry
34 posts | 29 read | 41 to read
She's not a psychic--she just plays one on TV. Most folks associate the city of Salem, Massachusetts with witches, but for Lee Barrett, it's home. This October she's returned to her hometown--where her beloved Aunt Ibby still lives--to interview for a job as a reporter at WICH-TV. But the only opening is for a call-in psychic to host the late night horror movies. It seems the previous host, Ariel Constellation, never saw her own murder coming. Lee reluctantly takes the job, but when she starts seeing real events in the obsidian ball she's using as a prop, she wonders if she might really have psychic abilities. To make things even spookier, it's starting to look like Ariel may have been an actual practicing witch--especially when O'Ryan, the cat Lee and Aunt Ibby inherited from her, exhibits some strange powers of his own. With Halloween fast approaching, Lee must focus on unmasking a killer--or her career as a psychic may be very short lived. . .

#LittensDressedInBlood Today's prompt is Cats and Bats

The book I started last night just happened to have both of today's prompts on it, so that seemed like a purrfect choice! ;)

ElizaMarie @Avanders I feel better. I thought I was close to 100% and went out yesterday to the mall. And ... well I shouldn't have treated myself to a glass of wine. I feel okay right now (not hung over) but that little headache is needling its way back in.. Next week I am going to call the doc every day to get an appointment. like all day every day! I need this near consult to happen NOW! 1y
ElizaMarie @5feet.of.fury It was super cute. I am sure you would like it. 1y
ElizaMarie @Mommamanzi I feel like it must be! Its one of the ones I will actively look for. 1y

Recent finishes for #Scarathalon #TeamSlaughter. 4 Halloween related books all ok not great 100 pts CaughtDead Handed was long and slow and I figured it out way too early - Team theme 15 pts and 5 pts for Pride for #PemberLittens. I loved this modern YA retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Thanks to @Julsmarshall for including it in my #staycation swap box this summer.

Clwojick Way to go! 2y

Very easy read. Predictable, light, and fun. Not in my list of favorites, but I'd for sure go for another book from her when looking for a "cozy" mystery to speed through.

A tidy, cozy mystery, with a slightly overused trope but thoroughly enjoyable.

A very enjoyable cozy!!! I loved that this story was set in Salem and that it almost became a character in the book. I loved the characters and where the story took them. I loved the witchy aspect of the story and even though I had figured out the mystery pretty early on it was such a good book! I will for sure be looking into more of this series!!

I've been a bit MIA lately. The plague has swept through the tv station I work at (again). I've been swamped, a little feverish, and exhausted.
I came home at 6 and jumped right in bed. But, I got hooked on this fun cozy set in a Salem Mass TV station. It's a lot of fun so far; even though I think I solved the murders a third of the way through.
The 2 black blobs are Hades and Harpy waiting for their dinner.

Book 12: This was a... unsatisfying cozy mystery. Between guessing the killer at the first hint, a lack of character development, and the constant reminders that the MC is, like, *soooooo* sexy, I was glad to have finished this one quickly.

A thoroughly enjoyable cozy where you know the killer about 3/4 in. A bit slow to start but it picks up quickly and sucks you In even after you figure it out. Setting aside some factual gripes as if you don't know about them or focus on them it won't detract from the story. Logging 3.5 hrs for #24b4Monday , it's deer season here so not sure how much I'll get it. Though honestly I'm people's out so I'd like to be left alone to read 😂

I‘ve missed you guys! On Thursday work starts in my house and I‘ve been busy packing (mostly books, to the surprise of exactly zero people) and shifting as much as I can. It‘s insane how much stuff is in my two bedrooms! Tomorrow my mom is coming over to help me (phew). Once Kevin is here and working, though, I‘m assuming I‘ll be Litsy-ing for most of the day. (Awkward having ppl work in your house!)
At any rate, Happy Halloween, Littens!

LauraBrook Also, I‘m bailing on my chunkster reads and readalongs. I can‘t keep my brain on books aside from cozy mysteries (like the one tagged), and even that‘s a stretch. I miss diving into books, and hope that next week when the dust settles I can get back into it. 5y
BethM Hope it all calms down for you! 5y
Jenshootsweddings It‘s hard to renovate and read, trust me! Doable, but hard. My contractor is pretty used to now just walking past me as I‘m reading and not stopping to talk! 5y
