Description: 

Agility can be murder for cats, dogs, and people! 

Animal photographer Janet MacPhail is training for her cat Leo’s first feline agility trial when she gets a frantic call about a “kidnapping.” When Janet and her Australian Shepherd Jay set out to track down the missing party, they quickly find themselves drawn into the volatile politics of feral cat colonies and endangered wetlands. 

 Janet is crazy busy trying to keep up with her mom’s nursing-home romance, her own relationship with Tom, and upcoming agility trials with Jay and Leo. But the discovery of a body on the canine competition course stops the participants dead in their tracks—and sets Janet on the trail of a killer. 

My Thoughts:

Janet has her work cut out for her in this book when she helps her friend catch a cat only to meet a very cranky Mr Rasmussen who seems to have a thing for hurting his wife.  Unfortunately he has friends in high places and has set his eyes on getting rid of all feral cats in the area.   It isn't long until Janet is served with a law suit over her find the cat.

Also in this book we see more of Janet's mother who lives in a retirement community and is suffering from Dementia and getting worse everyday.  Janet's mother has found love again with Mr.  Rasmussen's father in law much to the anger of his son in law.  He even threatens to send his father in law to a different community to keep the two apart.

What I enjoyed:

I loved hearing about Jay, Leo and the other felines and dogs.  I loved watching the relationship between Tom and Janet and to see where it is headed.  Overall it was a great book.

What I didn't like:

The mystery in this book wasn't central to the situation, there seemed to be too much other stuff going on so it felt like a bit of confusion when I read the story.  That is just my thought someone else may love all the little mysteries in the middle of it.  That part of the story the little mysteries intertwined in the story felt rushed.
