I had the pleasure to read the Two Cats and a Chicken Shop Mystery during my Christmas holidays. Without knowing much what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the story very quickly caught my attention. I also enjoyed reading the language of C.R. Martinez: it was rich in vocabulary and often playful in style. Storytelling went on naturally and tension kept building up. The end of the book is especially well written and one might easily think C.R. Martinez to be a much more experienced author! As a bonus, I got to live in the streets of Madrid and learn a few bits about its history without actually having been there - yet. After reading this book, I'm even keener on visiting the city. When I do, I'll surely keep an eye on any suspicious faces there!
