Jillian's other cats, Merlot, Chablis, Syrah are also along for the ride along with Magpie. A little pile of energy and is full of mischief who Finn happens to just love. Jillian and Tom are getting ready to get married but will things be put on hold when a dead body is found at a construction site almost buried under concrete, Jillian and her step daughter, Kara and journalist for the local paper are at the site to witness the action and the victim was recovered and discovered to be the construction company owner.
To make matters even worse there another death and this one may be more than Tom and the police force of Mercy can bear when the police chief is found dead in his home of a apparent suicide. When it is found that both victims are found shot with the same weapon and they were both indeed murdered Tom is then asked to become an interim police chief and head the police force. It's now on for Tom, Candace and Jillian to find a murderer before Tom and Jillian can walk down the aisle.
It was so refreshing to find a ameteur sleuth like Jillian, who is a stickler for the facts not rumors and who loves cats even so much as having a nanny cam installed in her home so she can keep an eye on them when she is out sleuthing. Tom and Jillian's love and romance seem genuine and they seem well suited and perfect for each other and together they seem like the perfect crime fighting duo. Tom and Jillans family and friends also seem like kind hearted and great characters to read about and contribute to making this story so heart warming.
For this reader and reviewer who happens to love cats as much as Jillian, this was a well developed and plotted story with many twists and turns going back and forth as to who could have possibly been the killer but when the killer is revealed I think like me you will be surprised and that was the magic in author Leeann Sweeney's writing, she kept you guessing right up until the end until the last clue was found. If you have a love for cats, romance and heartwarming and charming characters, The Cat, The Sneak and the Secret is for you.
