When Savannah Jordan agrees to help her aunt while she recovers from a broken foot, she doesn’t expect to walk into a mystery, become part of a not-quite-legal surveillance team, be kidnapped by a deranged stranger and meet a steaming hot veterinarian. Beloved neighborhood cats are missing—the community can only guess at their fate—and Aunt Margaret’s life is being threatened. Is it because she has a clue to the missing cats or is it something more sinister?
If you like light mysteries with only a little terror, if you’re infatuated by interesting cats and if you love a love story, you must read this book. (Summary via Goodreads)
Klepto Cat Mystery series where have you been ?? I cannot believe that this series has been out since 2013, has 23 books in this series and I have only just finished book one. Catnapped is the first book in this series by Patricia Fry and it is a GREAT start to this series.
In Catnapped you walk into a cat loving community that is being threatened. You meet Savannah who goes to stay with her aunt Margaret to help her out after she has an accident and breaks her foot. Savannah, Vannie to her aunt, is a veterinarian technician who has a cat, Rags, who likes to "borrow" things. Margaret, Auntie to Savannah, has a neighbor, Max, who has a facility next door where he rescues cats, takes in cats and treats them trying to adopt them out. And there is also a hunky hot veterianarian, Doctor Mike, that is all kinds of yummy !!!
Unfortunately someone is threatening Auntie by leaving notes on her property and maybe, just maybe the fall she took wasn't an accident. And if that isn't bad enough neighborhood cats are starting to disappear. Someone is stealing family pets ? Cats to be specific !!!
Auntie and Max belong to a cat alliance group and along with members of other cat related groups they devise a plan to look into the disappearance of the cats. You will see that once Auntie gets an idea in her head, nothing will stop her....not even death threats and a broken foot !!!
One word that can be used to describe this book is.....devotion. The devotion of the cat owner's to find their pets, the devotion of Vannie to her aunt, the devotion of the members of the different groups coming together to solve this case, and the devotion you begin to see between Vannie and Michael.
The only thing that you will have a hard time with when you read Catnapped is that it ends....and boy is the ending a GREAT ending. But then you just have to remember what I said in the beginning of this review ---- There are 22 more books in this series. So all you have to do is pick up Book two, Cat-Eye Witness and you are back hanging out with Auntie, Max, Vannie, Michael, Rags and the whole gang.....
