True confession. I’m not much of a cat person. I think they’re beautiful, but they make me sneeze and then wheeze. I have always been a dog lover starting with my rascally beagle, Goliath, who I used to take with me on my paper route. How Norman Rockwell can I get here?
When the opportunity came up to review LeAnn Sweeney’s latest book in her Cats in Trouble Series I had to grab it, even if I did have to take a Claritan. Many years ago when I was deciding if I wanted to try this writing thing for real, Leann came to my local library for a book talk. She was the first cozy mystery writer I had ever met, and I found her charming. She answered all my questions and even recommended a book on police procedure. After meeting her, I realized I could write a book. I needed to learn some things, and still do, but I felt ready to finally finish my first novel, A Dash of Murder.
So, thanks Leann for planting a seed and growing a writer. You have been an inspiration to me.
Here is my review of The Cat, The Collector and The Killer:
I really enjoyed this mystery with its many twists and turns. The is a lot happening and plenty of characters to line up as suspects. I especially enjoyed how Leann slowly unraveled the mystery as with each chapter the characters revealed a little bit more. The small town of Mercy, South Carolina must be crawling with cats and unsolved murders! Great series.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
