The New York Times bestselling author of A Whisker of Trouble returns as secondhand shop owner Sarah Grayson and her rescue cat, Elvis, get caught up in a case of she said, she said….
When Sarah Grayson opened a secondhand shop in the quaint town of North Harbor, Maine, she was expecting peace and quiet. Then she was adopted by a rescue cat named Elvis and a kooky trio of senior sleuths known as Charlotte’s Angels. Now she has nine lives worth of excitement…
Sarah’s friend and employee Rose is delivering a customer’s purchase when the quick errand becomes a deadly escapade. Rose arrives just in time to see the customer murdered by his wife, but before she can call the police, she is knocked out cold. When she wakes up, no one believes her, especially after the woman claims her husband is very much alive and has left her for someone else—and has a text message and empty bank account to prove it.
Despite her convincing story, Sarah is sure something is fishy—and it’s not Elvis’s kitty treats. Sarah, Elvis, and the Angels are determined to unravel this mysterious yarn, before the feral killer pounces again…

What I Thought:

This is the first I have read in the Second Chance Cat Mystery Series, but it will not be my last.  I liked the characters, four senior sleuths are always fun to read about.  I really liked the plot of this mystery, it was different.  Rose thinks she saw someone dragging a dead body, but the police do not believe and even some of her fellow senior sleuths are skeptical.  Sarah is not sure, but she takes Rose's word for it and they investigate.  There are many twists and turns in this story that kept me turning pages till the very end.  Even though I had not read any others in this series, I was not lost, but I am definitely going to go back and read the rest of the series it is that interesting. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
