  1. Opens My cat is allergic to people yes, odd, I know so when I came in the back door and heard Chablis sneeze, I stopped dead Why was she sneezing My Thoughts THE CAT, THE QUILT AND THE CORPSE is the first of the Cat in Trouble Mysteries and I can t wait to work my way through the rest Shortly after moving to their retirement home in Mercy Jillian s husband dies leaving her a widow and single mum to 3 rescue cats all named after different wines Jillian s life now revolves around her cats and her [...]


  2. I started this book and, after a couple of chapters, put it down again and decided it wasn t something I was at all interested in Then, due to internet issues and not being able to load anything else onto my Kindle, I ended up finishing it for lack of any other options After finishing it, my opinion got slightly better, although not much The mystery got slightly interesting midway through the book, but even as much of an animal person as I am, I got really tired of being bashed over the head wi [...]


  3. You love cats I mean, you really love cats I get that now Jill s home has been broken into and her cat stolen With fingers pointing in one direction she joins the owner of a local cat shelter to confront the guilty party, Flake Wilkinson After Flake s body turns up with a rather large knife in his chest suspicion immediately falls on Jill Jill is convinced that his murder must be related to the cats he has been stealing and with the police not interested in her theories she takes matters into he [...]


  4. This series isn t your typical cozy type, at least not to me The crime was a little grizzly and the circumstances and mystery seemed to delve a little deeper I liked all of the characters and can t wait to read the next one It also really helps if you like cats I loved the spunk of the main character, Jillian , and her kindness I loved what she did for a living and how she deals with loss She was kind of inspiring that way.


  5. I really enjoyed this book and will read the others in the series as soon as my Kindle gets fixed Again the main character is a woman who doesn t do whatever because she s told to not do it I m so over simpering, ditzy women that finding strong women characters is refreshing Here s what Publisher s Weekly had to say about the book Sweeney Pick Your Poison launches the Cats in Trouble mystery series with a meandering whodunit Jillian Hart is content making and selling cat quilts and living quietl [...]


  6. The Cat, the Quilt and the Corpse was a fast paced, stunning debut that I really enjoyed.I really like the MC Jillian she is different from many of the protagonists in other cozy series because of a few reasons first she is a widow, and second, she was a relative recluse until she stumbles across a murder victim It was a nice change, in most cozies the MC is well liked and well known, but to many of the townspeople of Mercy, South Carolina, Jillian was a recluse that they only heard of through t [...]


  7. Excellent first book in this new series about Jillian,a quilter and owner of cats that bear wine names really cool I love Leann s writing style and I will definitely keep reading Of course the fact that I m a cat aficionado is a plus You can expect to have a good time curled up with The Cat, the quilt and the Corpse and trying to find out who the killer is.


  8. In The Cat, the Quilt, and the Corpse by Leann Sweeney, Jillian Hart comes home from an overnight conference to find that someone has broken into her home, with her Abyssinian cat, Syrah, missing The senior officer in the police team that responds looks upon Jillian with scorn for her frantic response to having lost her cat, but the younger officer, Candace, jumps with enthusiasm into the case, collecting all the forensic evidence she can find and developing a friendship with Jillian The narrato [...]


  9. I m a quilter and cat lover who enjoys a good mystery once in awhile, so what was not to love about this book It s a quick read, light as air whodunit set in a small town where the recently widowed, recently arrived main character Jillian manages to solve the mystery in one short week, with the help of the town grapevine and her new friends.I m not enamoured of people who give their pets group names such as Jill s choice of Merlot, Chablis and Syrah for her cats Why not give each pet a name that [...]


  10. Leann Sweeney is a pleasant surprise To benefit from bargains, I collect handfuls of books years before I peer into them I m aware there are several in this series and with cozy mysteries you just can t tell if you re going to get overly cute fluff, or excellent plots in high quality writing Needless to say these bright covers are picturesque but would the titular cats merely trot across the pages in name Would their roles be central and at all realistic It is a five star, resounding yes Our her [...]


  11. At first I didn t think I would like this book It is written in the first person, and I ve had a lot of bad luck with books written like that and the drama it dumps on the reader But this book didn t do that Jillian Hart is a crafter and cat lover, two things that give her a plus in my book If fact, she cares for the cats in trouble than the person murdered Another plus from me The characters around her good too, from her first friend Candace, the female police officer with a gung ho attitude t [...]


  12. I have to admit, I really enjoyed this book I actually enjoyed it much than I thought I would I don t know if I was just on vampire fae paranormal burnout or what, but it was nice to get back to a real story.I liked the main character, Jillian, even if she did seem a little over the top when it came to her cats Some of her actions were a little hard to believe like when she still stormed the house looking for her cat even after stumbling across the body , but after all, it s a work of fiction I [...]


  13. Missing CatsThe first of the Cats In Trouble series We are introduced to the characters Jillian, a widow who loves cats and her three rescues, Merlot, Chablis and Syrarh who is missing Candace a young cop who is fascinated with forensic science and Sean Cuddedee who runs a no kill animal rescue site The characters well developed and catch your interest at once This one of my favorite series


  14. Lovely, A very pleasant detective story, revolving around cats, missing cats, found cats, and a murder, what s not to like Love her cats named after wine, now there s an idea


  15. When Jillian Hart returns home from a business trip, she discovers one of her beloved cats is missing There clearly has been a break in, and it s unclear whether Chablis was catnapped or got out of the house Nothing else is missing When her house is burglarized a second time, this time the thief caught on tape, she takes matters into her own hand and goes to confront him Only, what she finds is a dead body.Jillian is sure the murder is tied to the cats that have been going missing around town, b [...]


  16. I read mysteries because I like mysteries, plain and simple I enjoy the different backgrounds and settings and have always liked how our animal friends are worked into the storyline and murder plot But, this is the first time where the central characters really were the cats and they were what caused the murder I really enjoyed how this was presented and can t wait to read in the series Jillian is a recent widow living in South Carolina where she and her husband had moved shortly before his dea [...]


  17. Read August 15, 20104 StarsWOW This has the potential to be a REALLY great series Very well written with LOTS of humor The crime was very believable, as were all the characters including the cats We have cats They ARE that smart Jillian is a delightful if slightly odd, in a good way heroine, as are her wine named kitties, who all have interesting personalities of their own ONE is allergic to humans.I really enjoyed this book So much n fact that I am going right out and buying the next one there [...]


  18. The initial novel in the Cats in Trouble series, The Cat, the Quilt the Corpse is a fun introduction to Jillian Hart her 3 cats Syrah, Chablis Merlot When Jillian returns from an overnight quilting show finds a window broken Syrah missing she must enlist the help of people in a town that she really doesn t know based upon just moving there recently When a local man, Flake Wilkinson comes up dead cats are found along with Syrah a murder mystery ensues with twists turns all over the place Sweeney [...]


  19. The Cat, The Quilt and the Corpse is the first book in the Cats in Trouble Mysteries series by Leann Sweeney.I m an avid cat lover and am constantly bossed around by my own two felines, so when I saw that Leann Sweeney had a new series out involving cats of course I had to read it Jill s new life in Mercy is in shambles when her house is broken into and her cat, Syrah, is missing She sets on the trail to find Syrah and discovers a dead body, by the way of a evil man who is stealing Mercy cats an [...]


  20. An interesting twist to a mystery add cats Not necessarily a new concept, but this mystery series is very cat driven, and it s not half bad Jillian Hart, a widow with three spoiled cats, becomes involved in a murder when she finds the victim with a knife sticking out of his belly She also finds cats, and is intent on rescuing them If you like cats and a cozy mystery, then this is the book for you If you are fanatical about cats, then this is really the book for you, as it is filled with a pletho [...]


  21. I bought this one for a theme read in one of my reading groups Cats have always been an important part of my life, so reading it was bound to be a pleasure I m so glad I did Ms Sweeney s characters are full bodied, just like I like them She rounds them out with both good and bad strong characters to build on I thoroughly enjoyed all the cat facts interspersed throughout the storyline some I knew and some I didn t Overall, this is a very good book and I definitely would recommend it Can t wait to [...]


  22. I found the main character to be quite odd Don t get me wrong, I m an animal lover I m allergic to cats, but used to own 3 before I had to rehome them So, I totally get someone being freaked out when a thief took a cat However, the extremity of this woman s reaction seemed very strange to me.Plus, I thought the actual story and other characters just didn t ring the least bit realistic Granted, one doesn t read a cozy for total realism, but I d like my stories a little less bizarre.


  23. Catnapping, murder, small town America and Quilting, this is the first book in a new series and I found I read it from cover to cover in one sitting so I am looking forward to the next, three rescue cats one allergic to humans and their staff sorry the lady they live with have to cope with one of the feline members being stolen, a corpse being found and the human member of the team slowly getting her life back after the death of her husband a year previously Would I recommend this without taking [...]


  24. I m of a dog person than a cat person, but I still really liked this book The three main cats in the story are like characters in their own right and it was fun to read about their different idiosyncrasies, and to see what they were up to when Jillian checked in on her cat cam The mysterywhich had to do with missing cats, was very unique and I liked that the animals played such a big role in this book I just bought the next title in this series so I guess I m officially hooked


  25. Other reviewers find fault with the method of cat rescue, handling of the cat quilts and plot I can t say that they are wrong, but I just didn t care It had cats, quilts and mystery The characters were colorful and the leading character was likeable There was humor, surprise and wonderful descriptions of living with multiple cats Go, Leann Write More.


  26. I enjoyed this book, and am looking forward to reading in the series.The protagonist Jillian is a likeable character I like that she is cooperative with the law enforcement officers, instead of being evasive.I also like that her cats act like cats they don t talk to humans or each other and they don t have special powers like Koko with his extra whiskers.


  27. I finally had room on my TBR list to start reading Leann s latest series It s funny, cute, and an amazingly easy read I love the characters that Jillian our intrepid heroine is surrounding herself with, and the love interest that is working his way into her life I m looking forward to reading all the books in this series and I hope you do to.


  28. You love cats I mean, you really love cats I get that now A cute, implausible mystery for people women who really, really, REALLY love cats Note This review is pretty great.


  29. Jillian Hart returns from a trip selling her cat quilts and finds that one of her cats has been stolen Jillian s husband died of a heart attack 9 months ago right after they moved to town Now Jillian is meeting townsfloks while searching for her cat Syrah Then she stumbles upon a dead body A good cozy mystery


  30. I thought this was a fantastic book, especially if you are a cat lover like me The book is written in first person, which is my absolute favorite way to write a cozy mystery It makes everything personal and intriguing The characters were well thought out, and the individual personalities came through All in all, this is a great lazy afternoon, with a cup of tea, read.
