Publisher Comments:

the author of the yellow rose mystery series, leann sweeney, is...

"A welcome new voice in mystery fiction." (Jeff Abbott, bestselling author of Collision

...and her brand new series about adorable cats that just can't stay out of trouble is bound to be a hit!

Jill's quiet life is shattered when her house is broken into and her Abyssinian, Syrah, goes missing. Jill's convinced her kitty's been catnapped. But when her cat-crime-solving leads her to a murdered body, suddenly all paws are pointing to Jill.

Soon, Jill discovers that Syrah isn't the only purebred who's been stolen. Now she has to find these furry felines before they all become the prey of a cold-blooded killer-and she ends up nabbed for a crime...

Synopsis:

Out of school, out of work, and out of motivation, Abby Rose is contemplating her life and wondering what to do next. It's the kind of situation that would get some girls down, but luckily Abby's got a heart the size of Texas-and a bank account to match. But when she discovers the gardener dead in her greenhouse, Abby realizes what she needs to do with herself: she needs to solve a murder...

Once again Jillian Hart finds herself in hot water. When Isis is found alongside the highway and taken to Shawn, he asks Jillian for her help. Isis is the spoiled, princess cat belonging to wealthy and quirky Ritaestelle Longworth. Shawn tried to reach her repeatedly without success, so he turned the entire problem over to Jillian. When Jillian goes to the Longworth estate, there is an incident, and she leaves without talking to Ritaestelle. When Ritaestelle shows up on Jillian's doorstep in the middle of the night wearing her nightclothes and says she is being set up and that someone has been giving her drugs and have been keeping her away from Isis, Jillian feels like she needs to help. But before they can even scratch the surface of the problem, there is a body in the lake and Ritaestelle and Jillian's cat Chablis are on the dock covered with blood. Jillian knows she must get to the bottom of this quickly before someone else dies.

I love this series. Jillian and her friends are portrayed in such a way that I feel like I would like to meet them. I care about what happens to them, and feel like I am involved in their situations. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Jillian Hart is back with her three wonderful frisky felines, Chablis, Syrah and Merlot, for another Cat In Trouble Mystery. This time they are joined by yet another feline who was found near the highway. This rescued kitty's high brow attitude has proved to be too much for shelter rescue owner Shawn Cuddahee. He has begged Jillian to take the royal Isis and help him determine if she should be returned to her rightful owner, who has not returned any of his calls, or be put up for adoption for someone that truly wants her.

This leads Jillian to a huge mansion in nearby Woodcrest, the home of Ritaestelle Longworth, the registered owner of the lovely long haired, green eyed, black cat with diamond studded collar. Unfortunately the meeting doesn't go as planned and Jillian ends up making a hasty exit from the grand estate.

Jillian soon learns the town gossips are questioning the incredibly wealthy Longworth's sanity due to some unusual behavior and when Ritaestelle shows up at Jillian's door clad in a bathrobe, wearing slippers claiming she is being drugged and is in fear for her life Jillian starts to believe the gossip.

But before Jillian can even start to can get to the bottom of Ritaestelle's claims a body is found in the lake behind Jillian's home and the eccentric Longworth is standing at the end of the pier holding Chablis, and both she and the cat are covered in blood. Ritaestelle begs Jillian to help her and she can't say no. So with the help of her intuitive feline companions she begins her quest to claw and paw out the clues to solve yet another murder mystery.


I LOVED IT!!!!!

The last book in this series was my favorite cozy of 2010, so you already know I love this series, but Leann Sweeney has outdone herself with yet another purrfect paws down marvelous mystery.

The new characters added from Woodcrest to the already beloved characters from Mercy are well defined and cleverly written. You can envision them popping right off the page, from the eccentric Ritaestelle and each of her quirky relatives, down to the gossiping Dolly at a local coffee shop. Have to say I loved Dolly, reminded me of someone, just can't put my finger on who :)

The plot is strong, smart, intriguing, and will keep those pages turning one right after another until the very end. The cat's antics will have you chuckling throughout. Why are cats whiskers a certain length? The answer can be found within the pages of the truly wonderful story.

If you are already a fan of this series you are going to absolutely love this next edition. If this series in new to you and you love a fun mystery that will engage you immediately and/or love cats, pick up the first two novels so you are ready when this one is released in April. I promise you will love each and every word!!

Thank you Leann for allowing me to read an advance edition and not making me wait until April to enjoy this awesome cozy, kitty treat.
