Delia James, Familiar Motives

Delia James writes a great series about coven of every day witches and their familiars that I truly enjoy. Familiar Motives is the third book in this lovely series and I was thrilled to been chosen to read and review it. 
In Familiar Motives, main character Annabelle Britton and her familiar Alistair find themselves investigating a murder and a kidnapping of a local cat celebrity, Ruby the Attitude cat. This mystery while it is a paranormal actually feels very plausible given the popularity of some truly posh pets in that are internet sensations. I loved the magical twists and not knowing whose story to believe in this one. I was truly surprised to learn who the murder was and the motive behind the murder mystery. This is a lovely witchy series that I hope you will enjoy.

After learning that she comes from a family of witches—and adopting a familiar named Alistair—artist Annabelle Britton has made beautiful Portsmouth, New Hampshire, her home. Together with her coven, this good witch is trying to put a stop to magic and murder most foul.  When Anna takes Alistair to see local veterinarian Ramona Forsythe, they meet the most famous cat in town: Ruby the Attitude Cat, spokes-feline for a pet food brand. But then Ramona turns up dead, and Ruby goes missing. It seems like the murderer used magical means, so it’s up to Anna and Alistair to catch a killer and cat-napper as only a canny cat can.
