Caro Lamont, transplanted Texan and pet therapist is back in action. Cash, Jake, and Caro share office space in the same building. After Cash ask Caro to watch his cat while he runs home on an errand; he never returns. Caro finds Jake dead in Cash’s pool and she thinks Cash has been kidnapped. From there the action, mystery and suspense is on a roll in this cozy mystery. Caro just can’t help herself; she gets involved in the investigation much to the dismay of Detective Malone.
There is a lot going on in this book. Cash and Jake are techies that own a technology company which developed the Woofwalker app for healthy dogs, one is dead the other has disappeared, Caro is trying unsuccessfully to dodge her ex-husband and a noisy reporter, she is followed by a black SUV, she is still fighting with her cousin over Grannie’s broach, and Sam her new interest is being lovable and calm during all the action.
Ms. Abbey created this book with all the needed ingredients for a good cozy mystery, including touches of humor. She then brought all the pieces together to form a cohesive wonderful book that I enjoyed. She paced the story well as it never lagged; it kept my interest throughout the book. I found the book an easy read that was delightful. I loved the information on the Scottish Fold Cats as well as all the information on several breeds of dogs and the recipes at the end of the book were a bonus.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes cozy mysteries. It is well written and entertaining.
