Savannah Ivey, a veterinarian out on maternity leave; her aunt Margaret, the founder of the Hammond Cat Alliance; and Colbi Stanton, a reporter for the local newspaper take on a cat colony at an old, abandoned building. Odd activity around the place makes them wonder if it actually is vacant; some believe it’s occupied by something other-worldly. When a stranger comes to town and suggests the Alliance open the old building to a fund-raiser, everyone gets involved, including Rags, Savannah’s kleptomaniac cat. He finds something that day that stirs a lot of people—both law-abiding and crooks—into action. Are the feral cats and their caretakers in serious danger? What (or who) lurks inside the old building? What secrets does it hide? And who has the key that unlocks the mystery?
Book Readers Review
Another excellent book in the Klepto Cat Mysteries Series. The author Patricia Fry has the knack of drawing the reader right into the circle of family, friends, and animals who star in the stories. All books in the series are stand alone adventures allowing the reader to pick up a book at any time, in any order. I love to read and meet old and new friends and see how they progress in their lives and adventures. Characters and their lives do have a developmental line that grows throughout the series and new ones are introduced. It is always interesting to read an early book and learn more about the people and animals and their beginnings.
The Colony Cat Caper is a fast paced, suspenseful adventure, with lots of mystery and romance. If you love a challenge and solving mysteries then do not miss this book in Patricia’s series. You will fall in love with Rags the Klepto cat, the star who likes to acquire interesting objects and stash them away. But Rags picks up on many clues helping his humans solve the crime. Once hooked, you will want to read every single book. I do! Highly recommended for any age.
In 2012, Patricia decided to add another dimension to her successful career. It was her birthday and she gave herself the gift of time and space to write her first book of fiction. Of course, she chose her favorite genre and her favorite subject—cozy (light) mysteries involving cats. She published her first Klepto Cat Mystery, Catnapped, in June of 2013 and has followed (and continues to follow) with new books in the series on an average of every two months.
