Ie and her staff need to be careful not to reveal the purloined purebred's whereabouts while they discreetly make inuiries to cat breeders to find her real owners But after a break in attempt rattles Cassie's cage it's clear someone let the cat out of the bag And when a second body is found it's up to Cassie to spot the killer who may be grooming her to be the next victi. This is the second book in the Cat Groomer series I really enjoyed the first one The Persian Always Meows Twice and this next installment did not disappoint Cassie McGlone's cat boarding business continues to thrive and nothing seems suspicious at first when an unknown man hires her to board his cat Ayeesha for a few days while he is in the process of moving She and her capable assistant Sarah bathe the cat and discover that Ayeesha has been dyed revealing markings of the exotic Bengal breed Cassie suspects she may be stolen but when the stranger is found dead Cassie finds herself in the middle of another mystery While trying to find this Bengal's identity she also uncovers a sinister underworld which may be connected to the stranger's deathI really liked this cozy because of its multi layered plot and comfortable pace Cassie's romance with Mark the veterinarian continues to develop but not without some tension There were several well placed herrings adding to the enjoyment of the mystery At the conclusion the author includes a preview of the next book in the series Feral Attraction Just enough to whet my whiskers I highly recommend this bookThanks to NetGalley and Kensington Publishers for a complimentary copy of this book My review is voluntary
