Pawsitively Secretive book summary:

Pawsitively Secretive is the third book in the Witch of Edgehill series and follows Amber Blackwood. It’s that time again to work on the Meow Festival that her hometown creates every year. It puts a lot of stress on her and those that are on the board to work on it. That’s why Amber has dedicated these next two weeks to relax and not have to worry about anything. But that all changes when Amber and the rest of the committee go to the mayor’s house to discuss the festival.

Eventually, the mayor’s daughter pulls her aside to talk to her about something that she can’t really talk to her dad about. Amber gives her good advice and makes her aware that what she’s doing could potentially be dangerous. But like all teenagers, she doesn’t really listen and winds up going missing. Will Amber and the police be able to find the mayor’s daughter? Or will something bad happen in the process?

What I thought about Pawsitively Secretive:

So, I discovered Melissa’s books on Netgalley. The first one I read by her is The Forgotten Child and I absolutely loved it! So, I started reading more of her books and loved them too. Usually, I don’t really care for cozy mysteries but I’ve really enjoyed her cozy mysteries. This series surrounds a town that is obsessed with cats. A lot of the businesses surround their name with a cat-related theme. It follows Amber Blackwood who has a secret. Only one person knows about it and she helps him out around town. When the mayor’s daughter disappears and he starts acting strange. The fact that he’s acting so strange makes him oddly suspicious in his daughter’s disappearance. Will Amber be able to get to the bottom of what’s going on in her town?

The Plot

I actually grew up in a small town and I hated it but it was nothing like the town that Amber lives in. I would absolutely love to live in a small town that has a theme to it and has all of the cute little shops. Even though I would really hate all of the gossips I would still love to be in a unique town like this. A community that comes together and creates something fun and a little bit of competition for all of the locals. That’s what I love about this series. It creates a unique little town and unique people that I would love to surround myself with. That is except that one local that owns a coffee shop and isn’t really the nicest person.

The plot of this book kind of slows down a little bit, but not with action. It slows down with Amber’s past and her family that I think will be brought up more in some of the following books. Or at least I hope it’s brought up because the idea of cursed witches is such an interesting concept that I really haven’t come across. I mean other than Lord Voldemort anyways but this series kind of adds a different spin to it.

The Characters

I can relate to Amber so much! Not really the busy body part or even the witch part but the fact that she keeps to herself a lot. And I think that’s what I like about her so much. You have all of the books with female leads but hardly any of them are introverted people that are still able to accomplish a lot! Just like the last book this one kind of ends on a cliffhanger that I had a feeling was going to happen but I hate having to wait on the next book to see what is going to happen. I just hope that things will work out in the best interest of Amber because she really deserves it. Another thing I was pretty happy about with this book is that Amber and her cousin only became closer after the last book. I’m glad that she has someone there for her and can actually help her through things.

Melissa has quickly become one of my go-to authors and I would highly suggest reading her books! They are so good!
