Sleight of Paw Book Review

I have another Klepto Cat Mystery book to share with you called Sleight of Paw written by Patricia Fry.

Michael Ivey, the local veterinarian (Savannah’s new husband) is attacked by an enraged client and then later accused of this man’s murder. The evidence quickly stacks up against Michael, until Rags, Savannah’s kleptomaniac cat, starts digging up clues implicating the unlikely suspect. Coinciding with the details of this challenge is the discovery that the old house, which the couple purchased from Savannah’s aunt, is cursed.  
Is this why the couple has not been blessed with a child? Savannah’s sister Brianna comes for a visit. She teams up with the Iveys’ vet tech, Bud, to discover how to break the gypsy spell and they fall hard for each other. Will their courtship be strengthened or weakened by a frightening carjacking incident?
Purchase your copy on Amazon.

This is actually the third book I have read in Patricia Fry's series of the Klepto Cat Mysteries. You will love the whimsical adventures of Savannah and her cat, Rags and how they get themselves in and out of trouble. Most books I have read usually have dogs as the heroes so this one is quite unique and funny.

Both Savannah and her husband are Vets so they have a host of animals coming and going and because of that, they interact a lot with different people. Some are good and some are just plain out mean. When one of those customers ends up dead in the back of their building, they decide to investigate and Rags of course tags along.

It's a light type mystery book filled with humor and the love of animals. If you prefer softer type murder/mystery books, then you will love the Klepto Cat Mysteries Series with Rags and Savannah.
