I ran across this one at a sale, so glad I did. What an interesting mystery series. The animals are all adorable, the best of course being the feline duo. I just love their 'talks' to each other and relating to the situation. It's clear who the real owners are. haha. There are also a lot of twists and sub plots. At times that made the story seem disjointed, but certainly not unenjoyable. I was intrigued and read it nearly straight through. Drama, humor, twists, jilted lovers, murder, blackmail, romance and all woven so well together. And that classic saying "the one you least expect?" So very true! Talk about our double surprise ending. I can't wait to try books 1 and 3 of this series.

I thought that this book was lots better than the first book in the series. The cats get more talking time and a bigger role in this book. They even get to star in the movie! I liked how Jacques and Cleo have more conversations and more opinions on their owners. I think that they are smarter than Kate and Jake in regards to their relationship. There are more new characters introduced in this book. Because of the movie being filmed in the town, many Hollywood type folks enter the scene. Avis, the lead actress, and Jake have a past but their relationship felt very fake. I felt that the remarks by the producer, Aaron Tobin, were quite harsh especially the racist comments he made. He definitely comes off as a character everyone loves to hate. Jake still comes off as a very unlikable character to me. Even though there are several scenes where he helps out those around him (ie taking care of Ocie) he still acts like a jerk. Two scenes that come to mind are when he gets mad at Kate for going out with Bev and tells her he would give her a whipping if she was his daughter. This comes off very chauvinistic because he's acting jealous for no reason and plus Kate had done absolutely nothing wrong. The other scene is when he throws Jacques, who has very dangerous claws, at an actor simply because Jake doesn't like his choice of career. Eric ends up getting hurt but Jake never apologizes which I felt was really distasteful of his actions since Kate had warned him that Jacques could do serious damage. The mystery once again is a good one. I did guess the ending this time but overall I enjoyed the whole story. I always enjoy reading books about what it is like to make a movie. Overall I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading this book. I just hope that Jake's character will change in the third book, as it stands I'm still not a fan of him.
