Overview

When a normally mellow tiger at a rescue facility trees a terrified vet, animal behaviorist Grace Wilde needs to use her psychic ability to get to the root of the problem…
 
A tiger can’t change his stripes—but if his behavior changes suddenly, there’s a reason. So when even-tempered Boris the Siberian tiger goes into attack mode, Grace knows there’s more to the story. Something is agitating the big cat. As she uses her telepathic ability to calm the tiger, she realizes he has witnessed a theft—not of something but of someone. A teenaged volunteer at the animal rescue facility has been taken…kidnapped.
 
The problem is Brooke Ligner’s parents believe their troubled daughter ran away and Grace can’t exactly reveal her source. Even though sexy cop Kai Duncan is aware of Grace’s secret ability, he can’t initiate an investigation based on the word of a tiger. Now, as Grace searches for solid clues to rescue the missing teen, it’s the human predators she’ll need to watch out for…

    A Tiger's Tale is the second book in the A Call Of The Wilde Mys

    A Tiger's Tale is the second book in the A Call Of The Wilde Mystery series.

    Grace has been called to a big cat rescue to see what has happened to Boris the Siberian Tiger to turn him from being good natured cat to one that is in attack mode. Grace soon learns from Boris that a volunteer, Brooke Ligner, has gone missing and possibly kidnapped. Brooke's parents aren't really concerned, as she has had a trouble youth and has been a runaway in the past. Grace gets a glimpse of Brooke's home life and also learns that her biological father has mob connection.

    The series has interesting and believable characters, including Grace's sister, Emma, is still trying to get Grace in a relationship and Hugh, a vet, who Grace usually has to rescue in one way or another. Things continue on an even keel between, Grace and Kai Duncan, her detective boyfriend. And of course Moos, Grace's wolf, is around to share his thoughts.

    This is the second book in the "A Call of the Wilde Mystery

    This is the second book in the "A Call of the Wilde Mystery series" and while I enjoyed the first book, this one really kept the action and suspense at a high level. Animal Behaviorist Grace Wilde is called to a rescue facility to help with a tiger, Boris, who has treed one of her friends. When she arrives there and calms Boris down, she receives mental images from him that leads her to believe that one of the volunteers, Brooke, may have been kidnapped. The problem is that because Brooke is a troubled teen who has run away in the past, no one including her parents is convinced that her missing is a serious matter. And since her information comes from a tiger, how can she convince anyone that the threat is real. Luckily, her new friend (hopefully boyfriend), Detective Kai, is one of the few people to know of and believe in her ability and tries to help her with her search in an unofficial capacity. I enjoyed this mystery, especially with the interludes while Grace takes care of various clients and their problems. I also especially love her pet hybrid wolf, Moses, and his interaction with Grace and her sister. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    A Tiger's Tale is the second book in the Call of the Wilde serie

    A Tiger's Tale is the second book in the Call of the Wilde series by Laura Morrigan. Readers who are looking for a change of pace in a cozy need look no further. This books focuses on a disappearance rather than a murder and keeps readers on their toes with clues and evidence or an usual sort. Morrigan has an affinity for writing about animals and their thoughts and feelings that gives her work a realness that isn't easy to find in the genre. She is able to tap into the heart of the animal and use it in her writing. A great addition to this wildlife orientated series. 

    What I liked: 

    The first book in this series introduced readers to Grace Wilde, who is essentially an animal whisperer. Grace's ability to talk to animals is an ongoing theme in the series, which will appeal to animal lovers and cozy mystery enthusiasts. I love Grace. She's a bit of misfit in some ways, except where animals are concerned. She doesn't really fit into a particular niche and I always enjoy a character who has their own eccentricities and uniqueness. I think this character is all about being comfortable with being who you are and not letting yourself be influenced by what others want you to be. She is one of favorite heroines that I have found for a while. 

    Grace talks to all kinds of animals and in this particular book it's a lion taking center stage. Not many people are aware of Grace's gift for being able to communicate with those in the animal kingdom and when she finds out that a young worker is missing she isn't sure how to explain how she knows that she has been kidnapped. I liked Grace's dilemma and how she eventually figures out how to handle it. The lion was a great character and definitely has his own personality. I also loved the addition of Voodoo the kitten and how this affected Grace's life as well. 

    This book wasn't about a murder. Now there is a surprise for a cozy mystery. This one focuses on a missing girl who everyone wants to believe has run away. Morrigan is able to show cozy readers that a disappearance can be just as interesting in the whodunit department as a murder can. I loved that Morrigan went out on a limb and changed up the mode of the crime. She didn't stick to the cozy plan... bravo! Now I love cozies, but something different in the genre is a rare find and this is it. Great idea!

    The mystery elements of the book are all still here. There are a lot of suspects when it comes to this kidnapping and figuring out whodunit, isn't as easy as one might think. The plot involves everything from an abusive father, to an unstable kid, to mobsters. There are enough red herrings to make the perpetrator elusive and Morrigan keeps it interesting by providing a lot of different reasons or motives that someone might want to kidnap that girl. Very well written.

    What I didn't like:

    I liked this one a lot. It wasn't your same old cozy. The animal psychic connection is believable and Morrigan has a way with writing the animal psyche. 

    Bottom Line:

    If you love animals, an eccentric heroine and a mystery that doesn't has to involve murder, this is the one. A great read!
