Posted January 30, 2013 by Karin , OuluI read â"Two cats and a chicken shop mystery" during the holidays, and the book managed to catch my full attention from the very first page! For me, the style of the book is a compelling mixture of Dan Brown and Agatha Christie, where the author succeeds to tie in historical facts with an intriguing story. However, C.R. Martinez brings a kind of humor and wittiness to the story that is rare in mystery novels, while still managing to keep the suspension high until the very last page (no, I'm not exaggerating, you'll see for yourself when you read the book).
The protagonist of the story, Consuelo, takes the reader with her on her quest to solve a mystery, and lets the reader peak into her routines and thoughts.
Reading the book made me want to know more about tabby cats and about Madrid and it's history, and to visit Madrid and follow the traces of Consuelo and her quest. Don't miss the opportunity to check out the website with pictures and bizarre facts about the story (http://twocatsandachickenshopmystery.com/2012/12/20/spoiler-alert/) but do that only AFTER you read the book, or you will rob yourself of an adventurous reading experience.
For those who like mystery novels, this is the perfect reading, and I hope that C.R. Martinez will soon let us participate in another great mystery.
