Jillian Hart, cat fancier extraordinaire, is fostering a cat named Clyde. Clyde’s owner, an elderly gentleman named Norman Jeffrey, in a weakened state because of cancer, entrusted Clyde’s care to his sister Millicent, who lives 200 miles away. But Clyde is a wanderer and he escaped, eventually making his way back to Mercy, South Carolina, to find his master.

At first authorities believed Mr. Jeffrey’s death may have been a result of his illness. But they come to the conclusion that he had a little help into the next life. His caregiver and Mr. Jeffrey’s cousins and their offspring are the main suspects. And the family is an odd lot and all of them seem to have secrets, as did Mr. Jeffrey. And caring for Clyde turns out to be more than a little dangerous -- and Jillian finds herself in the line of fire. Of course, she has the help of her PI/security expert beau Tom and tons of friends.

I’m not a cat person myself, so I don’t generally seek out “cat books.” But Jillian is an interesting heroine and these stories are quick, fun reads. ( )

The Cat, The Vagabond And The Victim is the sixth book in the Cats In Trouble Mystery series.

Another fun look at Chablis, Syrah and Merlot and their human, Jillian.

This story centers around Clyde the cat who had been given to the owners sister, Millicent Boatman, as he was nearing the end of his life. Clyde has other ideas and returns only to find his owner, Mr. Jeffers, is dead. The local animal shelter turns Clyde over to Jillian to care for until it can be determined who should have Clyde. But Clyde escapes from Jillian's house, too, and once again heads home. Again a dead body is found, this time the caregiver for Mr. Jeffers. The police now need to rethink Mr. Jeffers death and determine whether is was suicide or murder. Jillian soon begins to take a hard look at members of the immediate family, who all seem anxious or have reason to inherit a sizable estate.

In addition to sleuthing Jillian has to deal with a TV reporter Emily Nguyen, who is currently a weather presenter, who think that a 5 minute segment will put her on the way to an Emmy. But with the help of her step-daughter, owner/editor/reporter of the Mercy Messenger Jillian is hoping that Emily will quit being her shadow and to learn enough to be a good reporter.

Things continue to run smoothly in the romance department for Jillian and Tom. And the time has come to share a secret with Kara, her step-daughter.

Definitely will be watching for the next book in the series. ( )
