Publisher's Summary

In the latest from the author of The Cat, the Vagabond and the Victim, a feline with a penchant for pilfering ends up unearthing a deadly mystery....Jillian Hart and Tom are finally tying the knot, but first they need to make sure Tom's stepson, Finn, is as comfortable as possible in the lake house they will all call home. So when it becomes clear that Finn has fallen for a pretty cat from the Mercy Animal Sanctuary, Jillian and Tom readily agree to make room for one more - even though the tortoiseshell kitty is a notorious kleptomaniac. So far, the cat has sneaked out of the adoption center time after time, bringing back trinkets, shoelaces, and socks. But when she brings back an antique locket, Finn enlists Tom's and Jillian's sleuthing skills. They hope to return the treasured item to its owner, but their search for answers is sidetracked when a body is found. Still, their sneaky cat's find may just lead them to a killer....

As always, a great listen!

Leann Sweeney has the gift of creating characters that you love and weaving them into mystery after mystery without anything seeming artificial or impossible-- even the ghost of "The Cat, the Mill, and the Murder." The mysteries are always intriguing and without obvious resolution, and I have become an absolute devotee. I also highly appreciate the lack of coarse language and smoky sex scenes; her success despite their absence proves how unnecessary these thing are to a good read.

Vanessa Johansson IS the voice of Jillian, and portrays the heroine's sweet spirit perfectly.

In addition to her delightful writing skills, I especially appreciate Leann's perseverance in crafting these stories despite struggling with ill health-- it is amazing what she has accomplished so far!
I hope Jillian won't be living so happily ever after that she stops getting involved with the Mercy's many mysteries. Thank you, Leann Sweeney!

They just keep getting better and better!

Any additional comments?

Leann's Cats in Trouble series is one of my top three favorite cozy mysteries. I have never been disappointed by any of the books in this series, and this latest book is no exception. The plot keeps your attention from beginning to end - and I was sorry when it was over. The characters in the book are so familiar that I felt like I was visiting with old friends. I fall in love with each new "cat in trouble" (like Clyde, Isis, Boots etc.), and in this book we meet Magpie, the adorable little clepto tortie. Sometimes when a series continues past the first few books, it can get stale. But these books are always fresh and entertaining. I won't detail the plot here, as I don't want to slip and include a spoiler, but there is a major event that was totally unexpected for those of us who have read the prior books in the series.

I have this book (and all the others in the series) in both Audible and Kindle, and I will read and listen to this over and over - it is that good. I would absolutely recommend this book - and the entire series - to anyone. I would also recommend Leann's Abby Rose series. (which I also have in ebook and audio)

Keep the awesome books coming Leann!!!
