No more pussyfooting around! Husband and wife PI team
Helen Hawthorne and Phil Sagemont have barely scratched the
surface of the world of show cats when a cornered kitty
kidnapper’s claws come out....
cat is a no-show....
The one thing celebrity
Trish Barrymore and her no-account accountant husband, Mort,
can agree on in their bitter divorce is shared cat custody.
But when Mort is found brained by a mahogany cat tower, and
Justine, their pedigreed Chartreux show cat, goes missing,
Trish calls on Helen and Phil. Despite a ransom note from
the catnapper, Trish is still the prime murder suspect in
the eyes of the police. As they await the post-Mort-em, it’s
up to Helen and Phil to find the feline filcher and let the
cat out of the bag.
Discovering that Mort had some
shady dealings within cat show circles, Helen goes
undercover as an assistant for a woman who shows
prizewinning Persians. But Phil is not buying Trish’s
cat-that-swallowed-a-canary act—he thinks she might be
staging the whole catnapping.
As Helen and Phil get
deeper into a high-pressure world of primping, posing, and
purring to collar a killer, they get caught up in a
cat-and-mouse game where the stakes are literally life and

I love stories about cats! Can't wait to read your newest book. Thank u so much for having contests for your fans. Good Luck to all, but I sure hope that I win.

I have 2 of my own furbabies - each one with their own
personality and colors, even though they came from the same
litter. I've had them from the moment of their birth, when
their Mother gave birth at my feet!! Having such a bond,
makes your books that much more special, and I don't know
why I haven't heard about your books before!! It seems like
I have some catching up to do!! Your latest book sounds
like the purrfect read to wrap up the Summer with, and I'll
have to do some catching up with your prior books as well.
Congratulations on your latest book, as well as with your
awards!! That should make it all the more special!!

Cats are cool, Denise, and so much fun to write about.

I wish you all could win, Cheri, but only one person. I'm glad CATNAPPED! will go to a reader who will enjoy it.
(Elaine Viets 7:28pm July 29, 2014)
CATNAPPED! is my lucky 13th mystery, Peggy, so you have lots of Dead-End Job mysteries to look forward to. Check out the first chapters of each one on my Novels page at www.elaineviets.com

I've read all the dead end mysteries and I love the series. Haven't yet been able to get a copy of catnapped but it's on my list!!!!
(Jean Utley 7:59pm July 29, 2014)
I believe I read that you used your own cat, Mystery, as the cover cat for this book. I have yet to read it, but am greatly looking forward to it.
(Amanda Barnett 8:11pm July 29, 2014)
I love this series. And I do agree that cats something to cozy mysteries,
but I think dogs, do too.
(Beverly Archer 8:42pm July 29, 2014)
Great series. Number 13 sounds as if it may become my favorite.
(Barbara Tobey 8:54pm July 29, 2014)
Totally looking forward to reading this book. My Mom & I are fans of Helen & the gang including Thumbs. One question - what happened to Chocolate the teddy bear? I really enjoy the Josie Marcus stories. Thanks for writing such wonderful stories.
(Evelyn Daniels 9:18pm July 29, 2014)

(Edie Restall 10:13pm July 29, 2014)
Cats and cozies are just a perfect combo.
(Sue Farrell 11:18pm July 29, 2014)
Hi! I just finished the book and I really enjoyed it plus I
learned a lot about cat shows. I've read all the books in the
series and can't wait for book 14. :-D
(Chelsea Schneiter 11:19pm July 29, 2014)
So excited to see a new book by Elaine! LOVE her work! :)
(Heather Janes 12:00pm July 30, 2014)
Elaine never disappoints! Have all her books on a special shelf in my
bookcase. As a cat lover this was probably one of my favorite books in this
whole series! But I'm sure she's not done yet! Always looking for the next
one Elaine writes no matter if it's Dead End Jobs or Mystery Shopper
series. Thanks always for an enjoyable read, Elaine!
(Helga Thompson 1:35pm July 30, 2014)
I really enjoy Elaine Viets' Dead-End Job series. I would love to win the book,
but I will read it even if I don't win.
(Patricia Hewitt 6:54pm July 30, 2014)
Cats intrigue me, but I haven't yet come across a six toed
one. Cozies are a genre that makes me smile and are ones I
reach for when the weather turns colder because they warm me.
