The Cat, the Lady and the Liar (Cats in Trouble Mystery)
The new characters added from Woodcrest to the already beloved characters from Mercy are well defined and cleverly written. You can envision them popping right off the page, from the eccentric Ritaestelle and each of her quirky relatives, down to the gossiping Dolly at a local coffee shop. Have to say I loved Dolly, reminded me of someone, just can't put my finger on who : The plot is strong, smart, intriguing, and will keep those pages turning one right after another until the very end.
The cat's antics will have you chuckling throughout. Why are cats whiskers a certain length?

I love the Cats in Trouble series.
From the small-town South Carolina setting, to the cast of interesting characters, to the memorable animals, reading these books are like going out for coffee with old friends. In this third installment, a cat with a diamond collar is in trouble and behind the closed doors of her antebellum mansion, all is not as polished and genteel as it appears.
Jillian sets out to aid the abandoned animal and, in her gentle manner, uncovers an even more serious crime. The I love the Cats in Trouble series. The perfect read for a lazy spring or summer afternoon! Feb 21, Bethj rated it it was ok. I have really tried to like this series. It has the cozy atmosphere, cats and quilts.
But now that I have read this third installment, I have to concede that there is just something missing. My main problem with the books are the plots. The reasonings for the crimes are a little far fetched and really don't meld at all. This latest installment is the worst of it. You just can't believe the ending. It is not developed enough as plausible, and the cliched characters do not help in the matter. I do I have really tried to like this series. I don't think I will try again with this series.

Mar 21, Ashley rated it it was ok. To be honest, I read about halfway and put it down. I just couldn't get past some of the problems I had with book 1 - I felt they had gotten worse. I felt that the explanations of why the main character did what she did were weak at best, and I couldn't get behind her. Jan 11, Donna rated it it was ok. This book was just ok.
I found the plot over-wrought and tedious and a chore to finish. The characters' feelings and actions were inconsistent and overly dramatic. Apr 10, Nicole rated it really liked it.

I never found myself bored with the storyline, and it kept me guessing who was the culprit. I loved how much the cats played into the story and the fact Jillian finds a stray cat belonging to a very wealthy woman, Ritaestelle Longworth, and is charged with returning the cat to her owner. I loved how much the cats played into the story and the fact that they were named after different types of wine, endeared me to the story even more!

A gorgeous stray cat has been found by the local animal shelter and Jillian has agreed to help track down the owner, who happens to be none other than Ritaestelle Longworth, the fabulously wealthy owner of a large estate in a neighboring town.

Ritaestelle claims someone has been drugging her an Jillian Hart is at it again! Ritaestelle claims someone has been drugging her and spreading lies. Before Jillian can get to the bottom of things a body turns up in the lake behind Jillian's house with none other than Ritaestelle standing nearby.
I am absolutely loving these cozy mysteries. The characters have grown on me to the point I feel like I'm visiting old friends. We are also introduced to the Longworth family and in the next town over. What a group of characters! It is unfortunate and completely believable that a group of people would behave so badly to towards their benefactor. Leann Sweeney knows her cats! Jillian's cats contributed greatly to the story, helping to provide clues without being overly obvious.
The mystery is well done, lots of clues and small town gossip, with nice little twists and a misdirection that kept me guessing almost to the end. It was a satisfying read. Feb 05, Roberta rated it it was ok Shelves: fiction , mystery , cats , series. I wanted to like this book because I was looking forward to reading a series of cat mysteries but the cats were the only good characters in the book. The human characters are totally ridiculous.
Jillian Hart is a volunteer for Mercy Animal Sanctuary. It is their policy to speak with the owner before returning a stray animal. The director picked up a stray but, when he called the owner's home, he was told by the owner's assistant that the owner was "indisposed.
When the assistant discovers that Jillian is an imposter, Jillian is kicked out of the house and warned to stay out of town by the local cop. So Jillian's Plan B is to return to the house disguised in a blond wig and dark glasses. I continued reading in hopes that things would improve.
In many series there are amateur detectives who are made to look smart by surrounding them with stupid cops but there have never been cops more stupid than the cops in this book. On page a cop who is bummed at not being assigned to lead the investigation insists that "This should have been my investigation from the beginning. I consider these people friends of mine. On page 86 the author trips all over herself trying to explain how Lydia a character who is beyond stupid is investigating deaths without being a doctor because she is the assistant to the coroner, implying that a coroner is a doctor.

Qualifications for coroners are set by individual states and counties. Many places don't require any medical training at all. So, assuming that Mercy is one of those places, Lydia could be the coroner -- could have just said that. Some coroners are elected, and others appointed. Ours is elected and he is an undertaker. Also on page 86 the term medical examiner is used as if it is interchangeable with coroner but it's not. Medical examiners are usually appointed officials and, in most places, are doctors.
Some places not only require a medical degree but also additional training in pathology. Can Jillian's cats aid her in solving a mystery with decades old roots?
