Celebrity Cat Caper Book Review

If you are an animal lover, especially a cat lover, then this book is going to be right up your alley! It's called Celebrity Cat Caper written by Patricia Fry. She has written quite a lot of books on her cat and his mysteries and they are all favorites of mine!
The klepto cat opens a new bag of tricks in this fast-paced story. Rags, the kleptomaniac cat, becomes a therapy cat in a children’s reading program. A documentary film crew arrives to capture the cat in action.  
Savannah and Michael Ivey invite strangers into their home during a torrential rainstorm and learn that one of them has a sinister past. Someone is murdered, Savannah is stalked, Michael’s life is threatened, and Rags helps to solve an old mystery that’s had local authorities baffled for years.  
A fast-paced story with many twists and turns.

My Thoughts:
As with all of Patricia Fry's cat capers, this one has just the right amount of humor and serious stuff all mixed into one delightful story. You can't help to urge Rags to figure out the problem and solve the mystery, sometimes getting himself into some sticky business but he always seems to come out okay,
Rags and Theodosia work closely together and between the two of them, they make an interesting team to be in the homicide division. Especially with what danger Theodosia and her cat, Rags put themselves in and the danger that lurks waiting for them.
Patricia always finds a way of making you feel like you are right there in the thick of things and tat you can accomplish anything you put your mind to, so it will be interesting to see what mischief that they get into, since neither of them know where the other one went.
Happy Reading!
About the Author: 
Patricia Fry began writing articles for magazines in 1973 and that's how she earned her living for decades. Her first book was accepted by a New York publisher in 1978. Every five years, or so, she'd evaluate the potential for her writing business and make adjustments accordingly. In 1983, she established a publishing company (Matilija Press) and began producing her own books. By the late 1990s, she was teaching publishing workshops. She wrote her first of many books for authors in 2000 and she also became a speaker at writers' conferences in many cities throughout the US. Around the same time, she hung out her shingle and started working with other authors on their book projects.

Nearly forty years after she began writing for publication, with forty nonfiction books to her credit and after working with many dozens of clients on their fiction and nonfiction books, she felt she was at a crossroads. Patricia reminisces about that period in her life. "All my friends were retiring. I wondered if I should, too. But how does one retire from something they love? Writing is not just a job, it's my passion."

The year was 2012. Patricia knew it was time for another career shift and she asked herself, "What writing dreams have not been fulfilled?" The answer came in one word: FICTION. That year, she gave herself a birthday gift--the time and space to write a novel.

She says, "The idea came rather quickly. And within a relatively short time, I was the author of a published novel, "Catnapped", the first in the Klepto Cat Mystery series." Every two or three months since, Patricia has produced a new book in the series. While you're urged to read these books in order, many readers agree that each book can be read as a standalone.

"I write these cozy mysteries with love and hope that you enjoy my stories." (Patricia Fry)

The Klepto Cat Mysteries

The Klepto Cat Mysteries are light, fun cozy mysteries full of adventure, intrigue, and a little romance. They feature Rags, an ordinary cat who just can't keep his paws off other people's things. Often, the treasures he finds are clues in a mystery. Follow Rags's fascinating life path from when he and Savannah were single and he roamed the neighborhood stealing everything from toys belonging to large dogs to jewelry and bathing suits.

Rags and Savannah don't stay single long. After meeting Michael, a handsome veterinarian, Savannah settles down, but the cat doesn't change his thieving ways. Even though his kleptomaniac habit is annoying and embarrassing to his family, he has earned the respect of the local sheriff's department and he was even asked to star in a documentary.

Be on the lookout in the next few weeks for a giveaway of ALL of the Cat Caper books that I have as of now, which is a total of 4 books.  It will be sometime towards the end of June or the first week in July, so mark it down somewhere so you don't miss entering to win these amazing 4 print copy books!
