Okay, I'm addicted-I admit it-to this cozy mystery series featuring the kleptomaniac cat Rags and all his assorted brothers and sisters both animal and human! This is the fifth book in this series I have read. I think I have missed about three of them and will be reading them soon--in addition to any new ones that come out. Obviously you can read these and enjoy without reading the others (as I seem to have done)-but there is a thread with all the same main characters.
Rags would make Houdini proud--he can find any escape hatch to the outside world. Somehow he always manages to find objects which he artfully steals and hides in his toy box or other places if it needs to be found. But this big, klepto has a soft heart as well--or does he just want to train an accomplice?
There are a couple of mysteries to be solved and Rags gets involved in each one. Savannah is expecting her baby-any day now (probably have it in the next in this series)--a young journalist is abducted and will they find the cat hoarder scam artists and the man going around murdering old ladies? Read the book to find out!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
A popular local journalist goes missing just before she has the opportunity to turn in her story exposing unscrupulous cat hoarders. Not only is Colbi a friend of Savannah and Michael Ivey, Damon (now out of prison and employed by the local newspaper) has a strong personal interest in her. In fact, Damon breaks some rules and some trusts in his search for Colbi.
Is this a love connection? It’s doubtful because Colbi is a strong advocate for the feral cat population and Damon hates cats—or so he believes. Will a kitten in need change his heart?
Colbi’s rescue is almost too late. She needs time to heal both physically and emotionally. So the Iveys invite her to recuperate in their home. Just when Colbi begins to feel safe, a body is discovered in the Iveys’ orchard and Rags (their kleptomaniac cat) goes missing. Can someone in a nearby homeless camp shed some light on the evolving mystery? Does Rags have a secret of his own?
