Savannah Jordan opens her beautiful home and gardens to the Hammond Cat Alliance, who is hosting a charity event, to benefit neglected and abused horses. Money that has been raised has mysteriously disappears. Who and why would anyone steal money that has been earmarked for the horses? How did they gain entrance to the bedroom where the money was placed? Who knew where the money was, except Savannah's friend Iris? Did Iris fake the burglary, or was it one of the many other guests who was in attendance? Who might have witnessed the theft?
Rags, Savannah's cat, seems to be the only one that was around at the time. Too bad cats can't speak, he would have made and excellent witness. Not only did Rags possibly see the theft , but did he also witness the murder that takes place? Who was the man that was murdered? How did he gain entrance to the bedroom that used to belong to Savannah's aunt? How was he murdered? Why was he murdered? What else might happen to ruin this fund raiser?
Savannah and her fiance Michael, along with Iris, set out to "help" the police solve the case, even though they were told not to. Soon they discover that key items are missing from the scene of the murder, who and how did this happen? What part did Rags play in this? Why were the police so interested in Iris's oldest son? So many questions, and not many answers.
I was happy to have been given this book to review. I had not read the first book, but was glad that this series didn't have to be read in order. Cozy mystery lovers should enjoy this book, as well as the first book, Catnapped, and the upcoming book, Sleight of Paw. Cat lovers, horse lovers, and animal lovers will enjoy this tale.
