Litfuse Review: The Case of the Jewel Covered Cat Statues by:Cindy Vincent

 The Case of the Jewel Covered Cat Statues (a Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Caper)
About the Book:
 Buckley and Bogey, Cat Detectives, find their next big case with the Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Agency to be their most complicated ever! It all starts when someone hides a mysterious package in their Mom's antique store - in the middle of the night! Of course, the boys find it, and put it in a nice, safe place, until they can open it . . . and, find the rightful owner. But that's when a whole bunch of suspicious people show up in St. Gertrude, and every single one of them seems to be after that package! Holy Catnip! Plus, everything happens just when a priceless, jeweled statue collection goes on display at the St. Gertrude Museum. 

 Missing from that collection are two jewel covered cat statues that disappeared almost a hundred and fifty years ago. But soon Buckley and Bogey wonder how long those statues will stay missing. Because this is one case that really keeps them on their paws! From a trip to the Museum, and to an old church for the Blessing of the Animals; and from dinosaurs to diamonds, they end up dodging shady suspects the whole time. It sure helps to have their friends with them, especially when the bad guys make a beeline for boys. That's because it becomes very clear, very quick - the priceless cat statues aren't the only cats those crooks are after! Holy Mackerel!

My Review:
 Buckley and his brother Bogey are amazing cat detectives. They can solve any mystery thrown their way, but this one may be the hardest by far. Late one foggy night, the alarm at their mothers antique store sounded. Upon their arrival at the store Buckley and Bogey discover that nothing was stolen. But the culprit left something there---a mystery package.

 Buckley and Bogey end up at the Gertrude Museum, where they discover a collection of diamond encrusted statues have gone missing.  The boy detectives are fresh on the trail of the thieves. They are so busy focused on this mystery and trying to keep their family safe that they fail to recognize that they are being pursued by the thieves. With these two guys on the case, surely they will apprehend the suspects in no time.

 The author is a really good mystery writer. I think this book is meant for children but all ages could sit down and read it. It was that interesting!
