Overview

Let sleeping cats lie…

 

Kittery Harbor, Maine, may not be a hotbed of criminal activity, but Sunny Coolidge and her feline companion, Shadow, have a knack for nosing out trouble. While Shadow copes with a sore paw and an irritating puppy invading his turf, Sunny gets mixed up in a financial dispute between rival vets and ex-spouses Jane and Martin Rigsdale. Sunny agrees to help Jane confront Martin about his moneygrubbing ways, only to find herself caught at the scene of a crime: Martin has been murdered.

 

Though Jane is pegged as the lead suspect in the investigation, Martin, with his greedy ways and his catting around, did not have a shortage of enemies. Did a scorned lover or cheated creditor put Martin down for good? It’s time for Sunny and Shadow to team up again, sniff out a killer, and clear Jane’s name before someone decides to put them to sleep, too.

    Cat Nap is the second book in the A Sunny and Shadow Mystery series.

    Jane and Martin Rigsdale, both vets, have been divorced for a few months. Martin has been after Jane to give him some desperately needed money. Going so far as to ask Sunny to convince Jane and he will make sure Sunny benefits. Once Jane learns this, she asks Sunny to go with her when she confronts Martin. They arrive at Martin's clinic and soon find him in an exam room dead. Right on there heels, Dawn, the receptionist, enters and accuses them of murdering Martin. But Martin is a man that never met a woman that he didn't want to love. Then, throw into the mix that he is blackmailing one of his mistresses and has misused some money that a loan-shark was having him launder.

    So Sunny and Jane have their hands full trying to sort through all the suspects and can finally give Will, Sunny's policeman friend, enough information and facts to apprehend the murderer.

    Mike and his lady friend, Mrs. Martinson, are back to lend some chuckles to the book. But the character that I most enjoyed was Shadow, the black cat. He doesn't provide clues, but does have his paws in helping to capture the person that has been holding him captive. I think his best thought that reader will read, is his calling Mrs. Martinson's puppy, The Biscuit Eater.

    I am certainly looking forward to the next book.

    Delightful mystery for any cat lover!

    I really enjoyed Cat Nap and will add it to my collection of books good enough to be 're-readables'. Anyone who is a cat lover who also enjoys curling up with a good mystery will love this series. I highly recommend it!

    The characters are great, the mystery is well written, and the animals are the best part. Sunny, the protagonist, is easy to relate to. She doesn't have a well paying job, she's taking care of her father who is in iffy health, but she keeps her spirits up and enjoys life.

    Love that cat!

    Another Sunny and Shadow mystery, and this book is just as well-written and engaging as the first one in the series. I like how the author writes from the cat's point of view, and even though it sounds corny, it really works. Any human with a cat companion will recognise the behaviors and the thinking process that we assume our cats have.
    The story is solid and the human characters are multidimensional and interesting. A great read for any cozy cat mystery lover!

    Sunny and Shadow are at it again, sniffing out another murderer.

    Sunny and Shadow are at it again, sniffing out another murderer. Even with an injured paw Shadow is still Sunny’s trusty sidekick as she gets right in the middle of some sparing ex-spouses. Martin Rigsdale was a terrible husband and Jane thought she was rid of him, but he came back wanting another payoff. Jane decides to set him straight for good and drags Sunny along as a witness. Unfortunately they were too late, all the found was Martin dead in is veterinary clinic and Jane becomes the prime suspect. Turns out Martin had plenty of secrets and enemies, Sunny and Shadow just need to find the right one before anyone else gets put to sleep permanently.
    Dollycas’s Thoughts
    My granddaughter grabbed this book out of my hand and pointed at the cover and said “Wiley”. Even she knows how much our kitty looks like Shadow. But Shadow is a very special cat, he is very inquisitive and that can get him in trouble but he also has a keen sense of smell that can usually get him out of it. What I really like about this story and this series is that the author not only writes from Sunny’s point of view she also writes from Shadow’s. Anyone with a cat knows we wonder sometimes just what our cats are thinking and having Shadow talking about the picture box in the living room or the way he likes to snuggle up with his human will put a genuine smile on your face. The way he talks about that “Biscuit Eater” and its owner had me laughing out loud.

    Sunny had come back to Maine to take care of her father after his heart attack. She has a job at Maine Adventure X-perience and the winter is a pretty slow time for tourists so she spends her time updating the website and waiting the phone to ring or emails to come in. She is still catching up with old friends and hoping to get a certain someone interested in her the way she is interested in him.

    Donally has written quite the mystery for her starring characters. Martin may not have been killed by his ex, or a jealous husband, heck there are Russian loan Sharks in Kittery Harbor. Could they be involved? The author surprises us with some very clever twists and turns.

    The cozy is a purrfect escape and I am so happy that the next book in the series Last Licks (A Sunny & Shadow Mystery) will be out May 6. I am looking forward to snuggling up with Shadow again very soon.
