Undercover Cat (A Klepto Cat Mystery #4) by Patricia Fry

A popular local journalist goes missing just before she has the opportunity to turn in her story exposing unscrupulous cat hoarders. Not only is Colbi a friend of Savannah and Michael Ivey, Damon (now out of prison and employed by the local newspaper) has a strong personal interest in her. In fact, Damon breaks some rules and some trusts in his search for Colbi.
Is this a love connection? It’s doubtful because Colbi is a strong advocate for the feral cat population and Damon hates cats—or so he believes. Will a kitten in need change his heart?
Colbi’s rescue is almost too late. She needs time to heal both physically and emotionally. So the Iveys invite her to recuperate in their home. Just when Colbi begins to feel safe, a body is discovered in the Iveys’ orchard and Rags (their kleptomaniac cat) goes missing. Can someone in a nearby homeless camp shed some light on the evolving mystery? Does Rags have a secret of his own?

My Review: Undercover Cat (A Klepto Cat Mystery #4) by Patricia Fry


This is a fun series of books. The animals are as much as any human character to the story. Especially rags who is always stealing things that help solve the mysteries in the story. There is kidnapping, murder and a bunch of other crimes. Rags is a big help in solving them. It is a book full of cats. There is also some dogs. I prefer dogs over cats and like this series a lot.

The setting is California a lot of it happens around the Iveys' home and orchard.

A newspaper reporter Colbi turns up missing and looks like she was kidnapped. No one knows why. Her co-worker Damon was last seen with her having coffee and fries.

Colbi lives alone in her family home. She loves animals and is feeding a bunch of wild cats. She is working on a story about cat hoarders. She has no relatives left.

Damon has been a character with a lot of problems in the first few books of the series. He has turned his life around now. He really likes Colbi. He is writing for the local newspaper now.

Savannah and Michael Ivey are a married a couple now expecting their first baby soon. They have Rags and a few other pets. There has been a lot of murders around them. They met in the first book of the series Catnapped.

There is a cast of familiar names that we have seen in the first three books. While reading the whole series makes the story richer it can also stand alone by itself.

I did not want to put the book down till I saw how it all turned out. It was a easy fast read.

I was given this ebook by the author so I could read it and write a honest review about Undercover Cat.
