Inspired by the true story of a kleptomaniac cat who stole his way into America’s heart . . .
As a tabby cat with criminal tendencies, MacGyver is always a whisker away from trouble. But when he stumbles upon a litter of four motherless kittens, he really has his paws full. It’s clear Mac has to take care of the cuddly little furballs, at least until he finds them each a human. That’s not going to be easy though. Not when Mac’s the prime suspect in a series of thefts at Storybook Court—and his loving but concerned owners, Jamie and David, have put him under house arrest. As if that could stop a clever cat like Mac . . .
With four hungry little mouths to feed—and two local detectives on his tail—MacGyver has his work clawed out for him. He’s determined to sniff out the real thief. But when he gets a whiff of romance in the air, he can’t resist a little matchmaking, too. One of the detectives seems awfully fond of the aspiring actress who moved into the neighborhood. And his partner looks like she could use a hug, too. With a little help from those adorable kittens, Mac is sure that love will save the day. Because when it comes to stealing hearts, this cat’s out of the bag . . .

A sweet lighthearted read with a cat that will steal your heart. MacGyver “Mac” the kleptomaniac match-making cat is back again. This time he has found some orphaned kittens and he raises them until they are old enough to be placed in new homes, which Mac hand chooses for each one. There is also a new couple that gets together because of the kittens, Serena and Erik. Meanwhile Mac tries to figure out why his person, Jamie, is acting weird and doesn’t smell like herself. There is also a thief loose at Storybook Court and all fingers start to point at Mac because of his past reputation. This book had me hooked from the start just like the rest of the books in the series. Mac is such a cool cat. Even though he can be a bit mischievous, he always has good intentions. The author has a way of telling the story that it feels like you’re right there as the story plays out. This is the kind of book that would make a really cute tv show or movie. This is actually the third book in a series and though it can be read on its own, I would strongly recommend starting at the beginning of the series so you get to know all of the characters better. Plus, you don’t want to miss out on any of Mac’s antics.
I admit up front to being a fan of this totally implausible series about Mac the cat. He's one dynamic kitty- he's been a thief, he's a matchmaker, and he's entirely sensitive to both human and animal feelings. This time out, he discovers five orphaned kittens and cares for them. He also finds the right humans to adopt them (love this part). At the same time, he's worried about his person Jamie because things don't seem right with her AND about the fact that someone is swiping stuff in the neighborhood again. This last, however, leads to his happy place. At least, Mac is a matchmaker- of people and cats and of people and people. There's not a lot to this, which is fine by me, and don't worry if you haven't read the earlier books- it's fine as a standalone. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. Fans will be pleased with how things turn out.
