Publisher's Summary

In Claws for Alarm, the fifth book in Cate Conte's delightful and cat-filled series, it's the heart of the busy season, and JJ's House of Purrs is booming - until a killer is let off the leash.

Maddie James has finally given in to her friend Katrina's pleas to open up her cat cafe to more than 10 felines: They're now up to 15 purring friends. In fact, JJ's House of Purrs is making such a splash that she's getting national attention. The East Coast Animal Rescue League is quite interested in the cafe, and so Maddie accepts a request to meet with Laverne Gardner, the executive director. Laverne shows up at the cafe and asks Maddie if they can partner on a fundraiser to support the local rescue efforts - and she offers up her celebrity endorser and her celebrity cat to sweeten the deal. Maddie, caught up in the prospect, offers up her sister, Val, to help plan the event.

But when Val shows up for a site visit at the venue, she finds Laverne strangled with a fancy cat leash - a piece of swag they were intending to use for the fundraiser - leaving Maddie with a lot of questions to answer. Was her death a tragic one-off event, or is there something more sinister going on? Maddie has to figure it out fast, before anyone else in the rescue community is jeopardized.

Another amazing story!!

I have enjoyed every single book by Cate Conte. The stories are so well written, the characters so believable and the endings are always unique. I love how the stories intertwine and reveal hidden truths. I looking forward to more cat cafe stories with Maddie and JJ.

The best book in the series (so far)

I almost didn't listen to this book because I was really annoyed with Maddie in the last book. But I'm glad I gave it a chance. This is definitely the best book in the series (so far). The story and characters are well-developed and I like that Maddie is treating Craig better in this book. I also like that she was instrumental in solving the case. For the first time, it finally makes sense why we are following Maddie.

Because I've listened to the other books in the series, I've figured out the author's formula and therefore figured out pretty quickly who committed the murder and also figured out the "side crime", but it was a fun journey nonetheless.

ANOTHER ENJOYABLE ADVENTURE

JJ, Maddy, Lucas, Grandpa Leo and the gang are taking care of the cats and getting into more intrigue - with Hollywood types this time. If you haven't read this series, start at the beginning and get to know these fun characters.
