Janice Bennett (Author). It is well worth the time to spend reading it. You cannot help but laugh at parts and wonder about others. I look forward to another book in the Events Unlimited.

And always ready to lend a helping paw are two black cats and the adolescent bloodhound Boondoggle. Then comes Halloween night when kids and adults alike parade in costume along the town's few streets. Only this time a murderer walks among them.

I have a number of Janice Bennett's books and I like her writing style. This book is part of her series of cozy mysteries that have a touch of romance. I like this series and have all of the books published thus far.

The heroine in all of the books is a party planner who is in love with the sheriff and aids the department with her skills as a CPA. She is written as a good person who has some minor flaws and insecurities. The sheriff is also a good person, who appears very laid back. However, he spent a number of years as a police officer in LA, so he has a lot of experience and is quite shrewd and insightful. He doesn't jump to conclusions and he treats suspects with respect. He reminds me of Andy Griffith, but without the southern characteristics.

There are a number of recurring characters throughout the series. Some are more fleshed out than others, depending upon the role they play in the series. They remind me of the characters in Mayberry, in the sense that they are representative of the mix of people one finds in a small town. Some are nice , helpful people who are always willing to pitch in to help the community without expecting any recognition. Others are are nosy gossips, irritating complainers, pompous blowhards who want all the credit but do none of the work, hateful mean spirited people, and perky cheerleader types. There are a number of animal lovers and amusing recurring animals, as well. The heroine's parakeet who teases her aunt's seven cats by calling out "Yummy bird. Here kitty, kitty" is just one example of how the animals are used to add humour and flesh out the story.

The town is public spirited and celebrates holidays with a number of public events. In this particular book, Hallowe'en is being celebrated with activities for the children and adults, and the heroine is the planner. This is the one area in the book that slows the pace. I liked most of the scenes involving the planning and execution of the events, but there was a bit too much time devoted to it. In one way it was well written. The author brought these scenes to life. We could visualize the setting, the characters and their actions. It was as if we were there and it was very engaging. On the other hand, it would have made for a stronger book to have had a little less of the mundane activities and more of the action relating to the murders. I know this book is a 'cosy', so I don't expect or want a lot of sensation and gruesome details, but it seemed as if a number of potentially exciting events took place off scene and we were told about them, rather than shown them. This wasn't a major problem for me, but I did feel the pace slowed down as a result.

This was a clean book, with any sex taking place behind closed doors. I don't remember any cussing, but there may have been some mild, infrequent expletives that I didn't register.

This is a great book for anyone who wants a relaxing cosy mystery. It has a leisurely pace, vivid descriptions, realistic characters, an entertaining plot and no cliffhangers. It will not satisfy anyone who wants a fast paced, highly suspenseful mystery with a lot of hot sex. For the targeted audience, however, it should be an engaging, satisfying read. I definitely recommend it and the other books in the series.

Black Cats and Boondoggles was my favourite of the Janice Bennett's Events Unlimited series. She seems completely at home in this genre, which I'd call "Light Romantic Mystery". Her characters, both animal and human, are engagingly flawed, and this plot in particular is well-constructed, and not overshawdowed by the central romance, which makes the last of the series a bit tedious at times. It's a cheerful and lively light read.

I love small town mysteries and this one is a wonderful example of the genre. The characters are intelligent and easy to relate to. The plot is complex and intelligent, and the community is warm and welcoming.

Annike's even planning business gets a nice boost when a transplant to the community hires her to run the Harvest Festival. After all, the SCOURGEs would probably have trapped her into doing it for free and this way she not only gets paid but has a budget to work with, almost a perfect set up. That is, until the owner of the only local industry is found in place of her scarecrow! No only does she have to change the venue at almost the last minute, while trying to keep things running smoothly, she can't help thinking about the fact that a local has been murder. He might not have been very popular, but he was one of their own.

She is also disturbed by her attraction to the local sheriff; the previous man who held that position was her late husband who was killed in a drug raid. She has been fighting the attraction since her return to her home town but is having less and less success.

The local gossip column has the town rife with rumors and she can't help analyzing each one as a possible motive for the murder. She doesn't exactly try to solve the crime but she does try to figure out what is going on. Her sometimes position as financial consultant to the small sheriff's department gives her an in to collect information.

I really enjoy the people of this small town and look forward to more mystery in this series.

Either I wasn't feeling well, or this one was a little slower getting me hooked than _Cold Turkey_ and _Bunny Hop_. But I love Boondoggle (I must remember to name my next dog after him), and the tension was tighter in this book. I don't want to put a spoiler in the review, so won't talk about the ending, but it was more tense than I was prepared for. This is the first book by this author where I picked out the killer as soon as the character was introduced, though. That was a little disappointing. But overall, it's still a good, solid, enjoyable read.

I started this series when I was flying home over the holidays and looking for a Thanksgiving-themed mystery to read on the plane. I came across the Events Unlimited series, and it is so much fun to read! I love the heroine, the plots are intricate and the character development is great. These are really well-written and I hope there are more to follow.
