Book Review and Give-Away! Cat-Eye Witness A Klepto Cat Mystery by Patricia Fry

Back in October, Cody and I had the pleasure of reviewing Catnapped:A Klepto Cat Mystery by Patricia Fry and today we are thrilled to present to you book #2 in Patricia's Klepto Cat Mystery series: Cat-Eye Witness!


Those that follow our blog regularly know that over all I am not a huge fan of mysteries. Often I could care less about "who done it?", but  for me the Klepto Cat mysteries series , are completely different, they contain  romance, humor, suspense, interesting character development, and  are the purrfect novels to curl up with on a cozy winter evening or ANYTIME! There is action, entertainment and a "small-town" feel to this series that adds a warm and welcoming touch to this series.

Cat-Eye Witness: A Klepto Cat Mystery, Book 2

Savannah and Aunt Margaret open the old Forster home to the Hammond Cat Alliance for a fundraiser to help rehabilitate the abused horses rescued months earlier from the catnappers. Before the afternoon is over, the collected funds go missing and someone is murdered in an upstairs bedroom.

Suspicion surrounds Iris, a local waitress and Savannah's new best friend. The only witness to the murder is Rags, Savannah's cat. With the assistance of a cat psychic and Rags's good friend, Charlotte (the young girl with Downs), the cat helps to "paw" the killer...but not before an attempt is made on Rags's life. 


Some say this is a love story with a mystery in the background. 




I began the book on Friday night and could barely put it down. The dialogue moves freely, quickly and held my interest. At 295-pages it is an amazingly QUICK, FUN and INTERESTING read! The plot twists and interesting facts about each character had ME of all people, actually CARING about "who done it?" 

I am confident that you will too! So much so, that I asked Patricia if we could hold a give-away (I am sorry, but due to the cost of shipping,  Patricia asked if it could be U.S. only) The give-away is open now and there will be ONE WINNER.  It will be open until Tuesday, January 13th at 5pm EST, and the winner will be chosen via random.org and will be announced Wednesday, January 14th! TO ENTER:leave a comment CLEARLY STATING THAT YOU WISH TO BE ENTERED, that's it! GOOD LUCK!

    1. Hi my furiend! Thanks so much for asking! I am EATING LIKE A CHAMP or like the piggy that I ALWAYS ate like! Mom is thrilled! I still have to have my complete blood panel done but Mom asked "Dr.Smiley" if it could wait til the temps at least go back into the 20s (hopefully next week) and he said yes. So, as long as I continue to do well (knock on wood), Mom is gonna wait til probably next week. Keep your paws crossed!!! I am acting TOTALLY like my old self!!! xoxo Love, Cody
