The Cat, The Professor, and the Poison
by Leann Sweeney
The Cat's Meow!
a milk cow disappears from a neighbor's farm, cat lover Jillian Hart
already has her hands full taking care of four preemie kittens at Mercy
Animal Sanctuary's office with Deputy Candace Carson. At first,
the call seems almost inane and a bit irritating, but the investigation
leads to the discovery of a huge number of needy stray cats and the
body of a professor. Who would want the professor dead?
What is the connection between the professor and all the stray
cats? The more Jillian investigates, the more determined she is
to solve the case. Jillian might just need a little help from her
cats to solve this one. When cats' welfare is at stake, cats can
depend on Jillian Hart!
In her second Cats in Trouble
mystery, Leann Sweeney once again gives cats lovers a mystery where
cats take center stage in all aspects of the mystery. Jillian
Hart makes quilts for cats, rescues cats and has three special cats of
her own, Chablis, Syrah and Merlot. Jillian
Hart may have a soft spot in her heart when it comes to animal welfare,
but she is no push over. If a cat is in trouble, Jillian Hart
will use her vast knowledge of cat lore, her intellectual acumen, her
instincts and her heart to solve the case. In THE CAT, THE
PROFESSOR AND THE POISON, Leann Sweeney takes readers more into the
character of her sleuth as Jillian and Candace form a friendship.
A reader gets to know one character through the other, catching a
glimpse of the emotional character as well as the sense of humor they
elicit. One is the perfect counterpoint to the other. Above
all, these additional heartwarming insights into endear a reader to the
series. The first book in the series, THE CAT, THE QUILT AND THE
CORPSE is an outstanding introduction to the series, but the
character developments and new mystery in THE CAT, THE PROFESSOR AND
THE POISON marks the Cats in Trouble series as one well worth following.
The clever and sometimes humorous mystery takes readers right into the
heart of feline territory, the good and the bad. Cat lovers will
appreciate some of the distinctions Jillian Hart makes between
political activists and those who truly care for the welfare of
cats. Without being preachy, Jillian Hart is a woman whose love
and respect of cats is more than surface deep. Leann Sweeney's
Cats in Trouble mysteries are the cat's meow!
