5) The Cat, The Wife and The Weapon by Leann Sweeney

The Blurb :

When quilter Jillian Hart returns to her lake house in Mercy, South Carolina, she discovered 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.

My Thoughts :

My Cat's in Trouble marathon continues with this fourth installment.  Not my favourite of the bunch so far but still a great book and a wonderful audio.  There is a lot of new information to take in this time around and the majority of it  revolves around Tom.

Jillian really shows how strong and dependent she is in this fourth part of the series when Tom drops quite a few bombshells.  Well he doesn't need to drop them because they all come out despite him wanting them to or not.  Most women would have thrown a hissy fit and left the guy to come by begging and explaining himself but Jillian sticks by Tom all the way through and does what needs to be done.

The plot is sometimes a little confusing this time around.   So many new characters all from out of town meant there was a lot of information to take in.   Even though Clara and Candice were around they were strangely distant during this book.  Only appearing now and again and usually, in Candice's case, because of work.

I enjoyed this fourth book and look forward to continuing the series.  If I had an audible credit available I would already be listening to the fifth installment.  Alas I don't so I am going to listen to something else for a change.  I am sure it won't hurt me to have a break from Mercy.  However much I am enjoying the series it will good to go visit somewhere else for a change and rest assured I will be back in Mercy as soon as possible.

Yes, not my favourite part of the series either. The Mill one will make you cry, so taking a break is a good thing.
