THE CAT, THE PROFESSOR AND THE POISON

The stars in this series are three cats, Merlot, Chablis, and Syrah and their "human" Jillian Hart. Jillian makes quilts for cats but also has time to get wrapped up in a few mysteries. In this story, she helps her friend Deputy Candace Carson track down a missing milk cow, but that leads to finding fifty, yes 50, stray cats and yet another corpse, the professor.

As if she didn't have her hands full, her stepdaughter Kara, who never really accepted Jillian marrying her father and has not grieved her father's death, shows up in Mercy for a visit and get wrapped up in the mystery just like Jillian.
While all the humans are running all over trying to figure out who killed the professor, in the end it will be a cat who has all the information.

I have come to love the characters in these stories. Mercy is a small town where everyone knows everyone's business, much like the small town I grew up in. When you wanted to know what was happening you went to a small hole-in-wall cafe. In these stories you go to a coffee shop, Belle's Beans. These stories are so easy to identify with, especially if you are a cat lover, but without the murders, I hope.

**One note of caution, this is a book you will what to read in one sitting, the pages just keep turning and turning, so allow enough time or you may be up all night reading.

Great addition to the Cats in Trouble series. Very fun, fast-paced mystery about an experiment gone wrong, in some uncanny way. The characters were consistent with the first book, allowing me to develop greater relationships with them.
At many moments, the rapidity of the plot robbed momentum from the story. More emphasis on the characters subsistence and interrelations would have solidified the story for me.
Despite it being mystery, it is a cute book to read for a quick companion.
