Book Review-Meow for the Money-( Klepto Cat Mystery #14)-Patricia Fry

Wednesday, January 20, 2016


I sometimes wonder if people realize how smart some cats really are--I know I am owned by a really smart cat! Well Rags is an exceptionally smart little guy--never mind that he is a kleptomaniac of the first degree! He knows when someone needs help and is there front and center. He saved the life of a kitty who was near death and when he saw her picture on the TV knew exactly who they were looking for. He convinced his family to follow him to where she was.

It turns out that this kitty was owned by a VERY rich older woman who was devastated. She actually owned 7 or was it 8 other cats who were all pampered and well cared for---as a matter of fact she was going to leave all her money to the person who would care for her cats. Now obviously there were people not too happy about this and things started to happen--

Savannah befriends June (the owner) and she, the baby and of course Rags end up spending a lot of time at this beautiful home. Then people started to go missing, were stabbed and were attempting to poison not only the cats--but the people as well. It took Savannah and her entire family to move into the house AND to get the staff replaced at least for a while until the culprit was found.

I loved the ending to this one--tissue box anyone? I just can't get enough of this series!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

In this story, Rags, the klepto cat, saves a beautiful Himalayan when he finds her near death one chilly night. Did this pampered kitty escape or was she abducted? Her wealthy owner, June Balcomb, can only guess. June is so grateful to Rags that she embraces the entire Ivey family, and Savannah and Rags become frequent visitors at the Balcomb estate. It doesn’t take Savannah long to realize someone close to June is out to harm her. The plot thickens when those June relies on most come under attack, her grandnephew is kidnapped, her attorney stabbed, and a trusted employee dies. When someone attempts to poison one of her cats, June agrees to bring in a whole new staff—all friends of the Iveys. Against the advice of others, she also hires a young woman who was only recently released from jail. Will things calm down for June once she has sent her staff and relatives away? Not until Detective Craig and Savannah, with a lot of help from Rags, start stirring things up.

I enjoy reading. I am also a cat lover and Himalayans have always been my favorite breed. This book sounds like I might enjoy it.

Parenting Patch said...

I love the name of this book. My cat likes to steal things from me, so a book about a klepto cat sounds right up my alley!

Mom of Two said...

This sounds like a good one for my daughter. She is in 4th grade and at a very high reading level and it is hard to find books that would interest her w/o the adult content or too complex of social/political info.

Interesting book. I could be a very light mystery book but I think I would like it anyway. I love crime and suspense novels.

Sounds like a unique book. My best friend who is a cat lover would love this one.

Something really different, love the sound of this. If cats are anything like one of my dogs they are extremely clever and very sly at times ;-)

Animals are so special. I've always found my dog to be smarter than most humans. :-) Sounds like a fabulous read.
