The Cat, The Professor and The Poison by Leann Sweeney

Cozy Mystery

EBook (also available in paperback)


Release Date:
May 2010

Widow and cat quilt-maker Jillian Hart loves her three cats. In fact, she loves all animals. When her best friend, police officer Candace Carson, tells her that a friend’s cow has been stolen, Jillian’s right there to help find the poor animal and make sure it’s safely returned to its rightful owner. Then, stray cats suddenly start showing up in droves. What’s going on? Where are they all coming from?

A creepy college professor brings the cow back with a lame excuse of just “borrowing” her, but Jillian is immediately suspicious. She discovers her suspicions were right on target when she discovers the professor’s property has over fifty cages of cats. The professor was apparently conducting some type of experiment. Cats in danger are not something Jillian can turn her back on.

There's a great scene where one of Jillian's cats takes a Mama cat and her babies under her wing. So cute!

This is the second book of Leann Sweeney’s “A Cat in Trouble Mystery” series and I loved it as much as I loved the first book. The plot takes many twists and turns and features a crazy cast of characters. Toss into the mix a step-daughter who turns up on Jillian’s doorstep, a jealous coroner, and a handsome security guy and you get a fun, fast-paced cozy mystery.

I’ve had this book on my Nook TBR for awhile. My Cat Mystery Reading Group on Yahoo chose this one for their June read, so it was a great excuse to finally read it. I have the third book waiting for me too. I’m looking forward to reading it. Love this series!

There's no way I couldn't give a cat mystery 5 stars and my great book alert!
