Good entry in the series. Sunny gets to be more of a reporter in this one. ( )

Hiss and Tell is the fourth book in the Sunny & Shadow Mystery series.

Another fun and exciting visit with Sunny, Shadow and her friends in Kittery Harbor, Maine.

Interesting time are in store for Kittery Harbor, Constable Will Price, the young man that Sunny has been dating, has decided that the community needs a sheriff that will fight crime and not one that massages the numbers to make it appear there is little, and is running for sheriff against his boss. In addition to this there are preparation for the wedding of Priscilla Kingsbury from the politically affluent Kingsbury family who live nearby in the family compound at Neal's Neck. Then in the early hours one morning Ken Howell, owner/editor of the local newspaper calls asking to go with him to Neal's Neck as there is trouble at the compound. They approach from the water and are taking pictures of rescue personnel retrieving the body of a young lady. Ted Trehearne, head of security at the compound, heads out to confiscate the cameras being used. But Sunny is one step ahead and starts to take pictures with her phone, which she emails to the newspaper. Then two things happen that really surprises Sunny. First her former boss from the Standard, in New York City sees her and tells her that he has the notes of a former reporter who says there is someone that is blackmailing people and one of those people is the young lady who has just been found dead on the shore. The other is that Priscilla has asked to stay at the compound under the guise of reporting the planning of her wedding and at the same time try and find out who might have killed the young lady.

The sheriff assigns Will to be the county's liaison with the compound so that he will, for the most part, be out of the campaigning arena. But soon the sheriff is found with his throat slashed, in his cruiser near the compound. Will is now assigned to patrol duty. This leaves Sunny pretty much on her own to find the murderer. But when Sunny returns home to get some more formal clothes, Shadow is able to hide in the suitcase. And as in previous books Shadow is able to do his own sleuthing and helps Sunny capture the killer.

Another wonderful story and I quite enjoyed reading Shadow's thought and humor as his side of the story is presented. Will definitely be watching for the next book in the series. ( )

HISS AND TELL is the first book I’ve read in this series. I found it to be very enjoyable.

Though the story is told in third person, there are times when things are from Shadow the cat’s perspective. That was a lot of fun for me. We always look at our pets and wonder what they’re thinking. If they are anything like Shadow, they are full of opinions!

This was very good mystery. Well written, with a lot of questions building up to the climatic reveal. I had a laugh out loud moment near the end of the book having to do with the short scene between Shadow and the villain of the book.

Cat lovers are going to simply adore this book, and mystery fans are in for a real treat. ( )
