A cat’s cradle of puzzles and surprises, begun with the murder of a man in a car he didn’t own, unravels in slow and entertaining fashion in the fourth cozy in best-selling author Leanne Sweeney’s Cats in Trouble Mystery series.
Vanessa Johansson brings the right degree of spunk and fortitude to the character of Jillian Hart, who would much prefer to be left to her quilts, crafts, and cats: Merlot, Syrah, and Chablis. However, thanks this time to a boyfriend’s past, she is once again proven unable to "learn to stay out of the murder business", as one accusing Mercy, S.C., neighbor puts it.
When quilter Jillian Hart returns to her lake house in Mercy, South Carolina, she discovers her friend, Tom, is missing-and his estranged half-brother has moved into Tom's house. Jillian doesn't trust the guy, especially since he allowed Tom's diabetic cat to escape. When police officers find Tom's wrecked car with a dead stranger inside, Jillian is determined to find out what happened to Tom-before someone else turns up dead.

RETIRED & LOVING IT.
AS USUAL LEANN SWEENEY DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB IN WRITING A VERY GOOD MYSTERY. WE HAVE LOTS OF ACTION, AND THE NARRATOR IS EXCELLENT. WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO PASS THE DAY, I WAS RIVETED TO THE STORY. THANK YOU LEANN SWEENEY AND VANESSA JOHANSSON FOR A LOVELY JOB. HURRY AND WRITE THE NEXT ONE. THIS IS A GREAT SERIES OF STORIES, GREAT CHARACTERS AND WHO DONE IT MURDER. I CANNOT WAIT TILL THE NEXT ONE.
I downloaded this to listen to while cleaning. It's was easy to follow & turned out to be my favorite of the series so far. I liked getting to know some additional characters while not 'leaving town' to do it. This book gives us some insight into Tom which, up to now, had been lacking.
If you love cats and enjoy a "light" mystery, this is for you. I enjoy such a book in between the "heavier" suspense novels I read for a little break. This one was really enjoyable. Not crazy about the narrator -- I appreciate clear enunciation but there's a fine line between being clear and overly precise in my opinion and it grinds on my ears after a while.
Surprises are in store for Jillian Hart when she returns home to Mercy, South Carolina. Her good friend, Tom, is missing. In his place, an irresponsible, unknown brother has appeared. Tom’s diabetic cat is also missing and is definitely a cat in trouble. Where do the wife and weapon tie in? Who is the strange murder victim? The Cat, the Wife and the Weapon is another mystery in the Cats in Trouble series by Leann Sweeney. There is just enough mystery and charm to make this a good cozy mystery and a great audio book.
Not much of a reader but love to listen
I love this series. Very light listen and some very touching moments. The cats are so cute and funny while the story keeps you guessing. A really fun series. I wish there were more of them.
I have listened to several of "The Cat..." books. If you enjoy light, clean entertainment, you will probably enjoy these stories. I enjoy these when I am doing busy work, etc. Not deep, but fun. Cat lovers will relate even more.
I like this narrator and think her voice works well for this series.
This is so far the best book in the series. The storyline was interesting and entertaining. This book was truly enjoyable.
Unfortunately the narrator just read. By the end I could not stand the - She said - He said which had to be used so you knew which character was supposed to be talking.
Decided I will not try any more.
