Take It From Me: The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks Review, GIVEAWAY, & Blog Tour (closed)

The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks Review, GIVEAWAY, & Blog Tour (closed)

Are you a cat lover or just looking for a cute little Christmas book to read?  Cat lover and author Cindy Vincent has just recently released a super cute new holiday book featuring her two favorite cat detectives Buckley and Bogey called The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks.
In the book, Buckley and Bogey take on the task of finding out who has been breaking into houses and stealing all the Christmas presents.  Being as the first two robberies took place in their very own neighborhood, the two cat detectives become personally invested in the case which has hit them so close to home.  While the two begin to uncover clues, they quickly realize that they are dealing with some real criminal masterminds!  The burglars sure know how to cover their tracks and are threatening to ruin Christmas for the whole town of St. Gertrude.  It isn't long before the burglars set their sights on Buckley and Bogey's home and are headed straight for their door!

The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks was a pretty quick read for me.  I enjoy finding short and fun books like this to read sometimes.  The book made for some great holiday entertainment and really puts you in to the holiday spirit.  The book actually talks about how it is one of the cat's first Christmases.  It was fun to read about the cat figuring out what Christmas is all about, everything it brings, and discovering the true meaning of the holiday.  Also, the mystery of solving the case of the stolen Christmas presents was very entertaining.  I love a good mystery and trying to solve things!  So if you are looking for a holiday book to read or know someone who adores cats--this just might be the book for you!

  1. Thank you so much Kristin, Jaime, and Rachel, for being part of our blog tour for The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks. I had soooo much fun writing this book, and now I've started working on the third book in the series. My real cats, Buckley and Bogey, seem to provide a never-ending supply of writing material. As are the rest of the bunch. Never a dull moment here.

    As always, your blog looks beautiful and you have such a fantastic variety of items on review. Have a very Merry Christmas, and thanks again!
