    3. Cozy mysteries aren't really my thing, but I've been reading this series since the beginning and I refuse to give up on it. As usual, it was a little too sugary sweet for me, but it was okay. The identity of the criminal did surprise me at the end.

It was packed cover to cover with twists, turns, bumps, and sneaky cl [...]

    5. Check out my other reviews, discussions and link ups at Fantasy of the Silver Dragon.I received this book for free from Obsidian in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I liked how the crazy cat lady was done in this. And how she wasn't actually a hoarder, even though she had so many cats. I also liked the police investigation, and the details that went into it.The cats themselves were adorable, and I liked how they weren't centra [...]

    7. 4 stelle e mezzaAltra bella lettura, sebbene avessi capito ben presto chi fosse il colpevole.Alla fine del libro è riportato l'inizio del volume successivo: sarebbe dovuto uscire a ottobre, ma la casa editrice ha ridotto drasticamente la pubblicazione di cozy mysteries, quindi non si è visto. Spero che, prima o poi, usicrà

    8. The Cat, The Collector and the Killer by Leann Sweeney.I've stayed with this series from the first due to the involved and ever evolving relationshipsing stagnant or boring for the reader. Add to that the caring but not hoarding of animals primarily cats.An elderly woman, Minnie Schultz, has a problem-a new problem for her. Shawn Cuddahee of the Mercy Animal Rescue has known Minnie to take good care of her few cats and bring any strays to the Shawn's Rescue shelter but now it seems she has becom [...]

    9. Great read!!I absolutely loved this story. I've enjoyed every book that the author has written, but her Cats in Trouble series is my favorite.

Two cats named Simon, and Otto are being cared for while their owner recovers from severe mental health issues and is suspected of murdering Chester. He happens to a man that very many people like. Lucky for Minn [...]

    11. THE CAT, THE COLLECTOR AND THE KILLER is another fun addition to Leann Sweeney’s Cats in Trouble series. Despite the fact that the stories are starting to follow a repetitive pattern, Sweeny still tells an entertaining story with some wonderful twists and turns. Her characters don’t stagnate but grow in and among themselves. There is steady movement in their lives that is realistic and leaves you feeling that you too are part of the action. In this one I pretty much figured out who the kille [...]

    12. This was a VERY good read; it really kept me guess right up until the end. I have always like Tom and Jillian together and this book just solidified that relationship; I love how they are both calm and collected and how much they adore their cats and treat them as family. And I love how most of their friends are the same way, even if they don't understand it. :-)I also love the relationship between Kara [Tom's daughter] and Jillian; in this book we get to see a lot more of that as they work toge [...]

    15. It's not because we are 'sisters in arms'(hint: we both managed to mess our shoulders about the same time and refuse to do surgery)!

    17. I finished reading The Cat, The Collector and the Killer by Leann Sweeney. Book 8 in the Cats in Trouble Mystery series hooked me from page one! I have not read every book in this series and it was really easy to understand who everyone was and their relationships. I felt a kinship already to main character Jillian and her clowder of cats! I love the way Leann writes you can tell she is a true cat person and it shows in the way she describes each cat and kitten. The mystery is compelling and int [...]

    18. 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.

    19. Jillian's life is going smoothly. She's enjoying her status as a newlywed, her cats, and her quilting business. When the town's eccentric cat lady is found wandering the streets in her nightgown, with a kitten in a tote bag, a search of her home leads to the discovery of a dead body. Minnie Schultz seems far too frail to have killed a man, and soon the police are searching for more clues. Their investigation is hampered by the dozens of boxes stacked in the house, as well as far more cats that s [...]

    20. From the cover: Jillian Hart and police chief Tom Stewart are enjoying peaceful, newly wedded bliss in Mercy, South Carolina, until a woman is found wandering the streets one night. She's in her night clothes, disoriented, and carrying a kitten in a tote bag. A search of the woman’s house reveals many more cats, a maze of cardboard boxes—and a dead man. Although the evidence suggests the frail woman is the killer, Jillian doesn’t believe she’s capable of such a crime. The dead man had ma [...]

    21. When a dead body is bound in a house filled with unopened packages — and cats, Jillian Hart becomes involved in yet another mystery. Why was the animal control officer there? Who killed him? And why was the homeowner, Minnie Schultz found wandering the streets in her pajamas? Jillian helps the police uncover the truth (her husband is the acting chief of police), as well as reuniting splintered families. Enjoyable. Recommended.

    22. This series is always a pleasure to read. Mystery was good, I like the twists and turns in this particular story. Jillian seemed a little less "crazy cat lady" this time around. This makes me feel better about the way I talk to my cat, and I'm pretty sure that I'm not crazy. I enjoyed the cats, they always provide a humorous bit to the stories but they seemed to take a back burner in this book.

    23. I am devastated. I've FINISHED THE SERIES, to date. "The Cat, the Boy, and the Bones" should have come out in October of this year, but isn't out yet! I'll be stalking my new release site for this one!

    24. fun little murder mystery, quilt-maker married to the little town police chief helps solve mysteries. Strong cat element, including cat rescue.

    25. Can't believe this is the 8th book. I love every one I read. Then I give to my Mom to read. Kind of sad I can't find the newest one, yet.

    26. Sometimes the characters annoy me. Are my tastes changing, or is the "I'm stressed; I need my kitties" shtick getting old? (I'm a cat lover, so it's not that.)
