Our favorite feline sleuths, Hettie and Tilly are back in their latest and most unusual adventure yet - Beyond the Gravy. Ghosts are usually beyond the purview of the No. 2 Feline Detective Agency, but after Irene Peggledrip’s pleading and a demonstration from the ghosts involved, the duo reluctantly agree to take the case. The ghosts believe they are murderers, but who they are and who the victim was is in question.
A vital clue comes from the venerable Miss Crispy who recognizes elements of her play The Mousetrap.
Needless to say, over the course of their investigation Hettie, Tilly and Co., make new friends, have plenty of unusual , off the wall adventures and eat plenty of scrumptious food. Like all books in this adorable cozy series, there is much to bring a smile to a reader’s face. From the merry to the macabre, Beyond the Gravy is a veritable feast.

I received a copy of Beyond the Gravy from the publisher and Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
The spirits move Hettie and Tilly to investigate an old murder mystery, where all the cats involved appear to be dead...
Psychic cat Irene Peggledrip is being visited by a band of malevolent spirits who all claim to be murderers. Not only is their message disturbing, but they cause chaos with indoor snowstorms, flying books and the untimely demise of a delicious Victoria sponge. Irene calls in Hettie and Tilly of the No. 2 Feline Detective Agency to help, but they’re not sure how far their skills reach into the spirit realm.
Meanwhile, Lavender Stamp, the town’s bad-tempered postmistress cat, has some good news to deliver to Tilly: she has won a competition to take afternoon tea with renowned mystery writer Agatha Crispy at her Devon home, Furaway House.
Will Hettie and Tilly finally lay the ghosts to rest? Can Molly Bloom’s new café survive the seance? And will the moving claw give up its secrets before the gravy congeals?
Find out in this latest adventure of our favourite feline sleuths.
