Beatrice Young almost died and no one's seen her since. So when a 500-pound Siberian tiger is stolen from a roadside attraction near the small town of Ashbrook, New Hampshire, it's up to her trusty friends Matthew and the sheriff to solve the case.
The plot thickens as the men discover the controversy surrounding Omar the tiger—the animal rights activists who want to free him, the owner who wants to keep him, and maybe even the exotic animal traders who want to sell him.
It's a dangerous case and Matthew and the sheriff quickly become the prey, not the hunters. Beatrice and her three crime-solving cats better make it back in time, before it all goes horribly wrong...
The Grrr-eat Tiger Chase is the eighth book in the Beatrice Young cozy cat mystery series. These books can be read in any order but are extra delightful when enjoyed in sequence. This story is especially satisfactory if you read book seven, The Paw-sitively Cheerful Poisoner, first. (Summary via Goodreads)
I have never read any of this authors books before, and this being later in the series, I had no problem getting to know the characters in the book. I liked this story. It was a fast and easy read.
Interestingly the main character is 63 and very active. I am 60 and thankful that I never had to face any "tigers on the loose" like Bee has in this story. She is a determined independent woman and plans on staying that way...that's what keeps her young.
Glad I had the chance to read this and recommend this to everyone.
