Feline PI Joe Grey and his friends pounce on several investigations that may connect to one large mystery —including a case that is very personal…

Joe Grey and his tabby lady, Dulcie, are frantic when Courtney, their teen kitten, goes missing. Aided by their two- and four-legged friends, they hit the streets of Molena Point in search of their calico girl.

Courtney has no idea that everyone is looking for her. Kidnapped, locked in a luxurious upstairs apartment above the local antiques shop, she begins to enjoy her first lone adventure as the shop’s owner, Ulrich Seaver, pampers and flatters her. Sheltered by her parents, her brothers, and her kind human companions, innocent Courtney thrills at the glamorous future Seaver paints for her—until his sly moves awaken a sharp fear in the young calico…

Joe Grey, intent on finding Courtney, neglects his search for the attacker who left a beaten woman near death in an open grave. As the clues to that crime surface, as Joe passes information to Molena Point PD, he finds himself entwined in a larger tangle of robbery, death, and unexpected relationships that challenge even the wily gray tomcat. Can the fleet-footed feline unravel the mysteries before it is too late?

Cat Chase the Moon by Shirley Rousseau Murphy is the 21st book in her fun Joe Grey series. I have read every book in this series, and it is one of my favorite go to books when I want a fun relaxing story to read. Refresher: Joe Grey series is always sweet lighthearted mysteries with a group of wonderful talking cats, and their humans. These are magical sentient cats that live in Molena Point, California, but only their humans close to them know they can talk, and the cats are the real ones who solve the crimes. I am still amazed that into the 21sth book, Murphy can still win us over each and every time. I adore our cats, Joe, Dulcie, Kit, Pan & the kittens. They are awesome, sweet, daring, and clever. The humans who are a major part of this series, are Clyde and Ryan; Wilma, Charlie (who is married to the police chief, and he does not know about the cats). They are all an awesome group that makes this series so much fun and exciting. In Cat Chase the Moon there is another mystery starting with a women found badly beaten, which will lead to a family involved in stolen goods, as well as being very abrasive and loud. The town of Molena Point does not take well to the Luthers, who also do not take good care of their young daughter,Mindy, who runs away to find her grandpa. The police and Joe Grey keep a close eye on the Luthers, especially trying to discover about the stolen goods. While this is going on, Courtney, Joe and Dulcie’s daughter suddenly goes missing. This will bring everyone, cats and family humans desperately trying to find her. When they finally find her locked up in a antique store and apartment, Courtney wants to say to find out more information to help find why they kidnapped her, and what are their plans for her. Currently they are treating her nice, but Joe and Dulcie worry. What follows is an exciting mystery, trying to help the beaten woman hide from those who are trying to harm her from revealing information about them; as well as trying to get Courtney out of the house she is locked in. The police bring the women to a hiding place to protect her, and in time when Courtney is rescued, she will be put there too. There are trying times for Joe and Dulcie, who know their sweet little girl is in danger, and perhaps moving on with her life away from them. I loved how Charlie, Ryan, Wilma, Clyde all work closely with our wonderful smart talking cats, to solve the crimes. Even 21 books later, the Molena Point police like the snitches who give them info, but they are still stumped who they are. Of course, would they believe it is the cats that are snitches? lol Cat Chase Moon was a good exciting mystery with some very bad villains; who have to deal with Joe Grey on the job, and his little group of friends. This is a fun series, exciting mysteries, and fantastic characters, including cats and humans. Do not let that fact that these cats can talk deter you into reading this series. It is a fun and awesome series, and so well written my Shirley Rousseau Murphy. Give yourself a chance to read this enjoyable series.
