Cats. A mystery. What's not to like! A thoroughly enjoyable cozy mystery in a series that promises to be lots of fun to read! ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! It was fun, entertaining and most importantly CLEAN! It could very easily become the next great Hallmark, made for TV movie. Finally, an author who doesn't need to use expletives, graphic gruesomeness or soft-porn to write a good story! I've already started the second book in her series after just finishing this read an hour ago! Kudos and a big thank you to Leann Sweeney! ( )

Jillian Hart, new resident in a small town and a recent widow, is trying to rebuild her life. She makes and sells quilts for cats, and arriving home after an overnight business trip, she discovers a broken window and one of her own beloved cats is missing. Catnapped! What follows is an intriguing mystery as Jillian unearths clues and makes new friends in the process. This first installment in the "Cats in Trouble" mystery series by Leann Sweeney is nothing but sheer delight for readers who like both cozies and cats. With believable characters who are likeable even with their flaws and a plot that will keep you guessing, this story will have you reaching for the next book in the series as soon as you finish it.

The Cat, The Quilt and The Corpse is indeed about a missing cat, a found quilt, and a dead body. Jillian Hart, a recent widow, is only searching for her missing cat when she finds a dead body. Because of her belief that her missing cat is somehow involved, she turns amateur detective and works to solve the mystery.

Will this mystery change your life? No. Will the writing win a Pulitzer Prize? No, again. Was this book enjoyable? Yes!

The writing is well-paced and clear with no obvious faults. The characters are overall believable, although one or two of them could have used a bit more depth. The cats were accurately portrayed as real cats by someone who obviously owns and loves cats. And the mystery was a mystery right up to the end, which surprised me.

I can think of no major problems with this book -- it's a light, fun mystery with great cats. I look forward to reading the next book in the series! ( )

I don't usually want to cry at the very beginning of a book but when cat lover Jillian Hart arrives home to discover her house broken into and the only thing missing is one of her beloved cats, this is what I almost did. And then the plot thickens when the catnapper is later found murdered by none other than Jillian Hart. Things get more interesting from then on until the murderer is found and the motive is discovered. ( )

My cat is allergic to people - yes, odd, I know - so when I came in the back door and heard Chablis sneeze, I stopped dead.
