Mystery

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....

This show 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 death....

(Denise Holcomb 10:53pm July 28, 2014)

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.
(
Elaine Viets 7:27pm July 29, 2014)

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 truly enjoyed this book. Elaine Viets never disappoints! Thank you for this
opportunity!

Susan Carter 7:39pm July 29, 2014)

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)

Have enjoyed every single one of the dead end job mysteries. love the characters and situations.
(
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.
