You can never go wrong with an Elaine Viets cozy mystery. I learned a lot about the world of cat shows reading this story.

Multiple cases have Helen and Phil running around like cats who got their tails stepped on! I figured most of the who as well as why but was satisfied to learn the rest. Another good story in this fun cozy series!

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Each book is better than the last!!

Phil and Helen had their hands full in this story. A catnapping, a murder or two, drama at the Coronado, and Helen learns all about cats and cat shows in her latest Dead End Job. Thankfully her cat Thumbs is pretty self sufficient as long as the food and water dish is full and the litter box is clean.

There were really two plot-lines twisted together. This kept me as the reader very engaged. Margery, owner of the Coronado apartments, is always a very interesting character with the cigarette swirling around her head. In Catnapped! she gets a blast from her past that puts her front and center for most of the story. We also see how some kitty parents go a bit crazy about their pets. Most of us love our pets dearly and they become important parts of our families but Trish and Mort are just a bit out there when it comes to their beloved feline.

The author has given us yet another wonderful mystery that takes us to sunny Florida to visit our friends at the Coronado. The residents there are like one big family. Their antics will make you laugh out loud, but they always have each others back.

A “cativating” story that is fun and entertaining. A “Purrfect” Escape!!
