Trouble has gained confidence after his first case with owner Tammy Lynn and is up to the challenge of navigating a new city and pushing Julia and Deputy Marshall Mitch Lawson in the right direction as they work the case. I especially like the humans’ conversations as they muse on how the cat seems so often to be manipulating them. As of course, he is.
I also liked the peek into the culture of the Savannah social set. I was intrigued by Mitch Lawson’s role as a Marshall; this is an interesting, and helpful twist to the unraveling of the mystery. Naturally we have a bit of a love story, exceptional in that it develops without the usual bumps in the road which can be so predictable and frustrating to the reader!
I’m really enjoying this series. The stories are not your garden variety cozies: they are more intricate and far less formulaic. I’m hooked!
It was an enjoyable cozy read with some interesting twists, red herrings and clues that kept me guessing. A strong mystery plot that was fast paced, suspects from high society to the Russian mafia, and just a little romantic distraction for Julia and Mitch. Trouble was again a hero as he continued to use his "superior" detection skills to guide Julia throughout this case of art theft and murder. I have to confess that my favorite character in this book is Julia's Aunt Ethyl. She was wonderful as only a "woman of a certain age" can be in her honesty about herself and others. She often made me laugh with her observations. She also made a great team with Trouble as they raced at the end to help solve the case.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. All of the above opinions are my own.
Trouble is back for more adventures- or maybe I should say misadventures!
Trouble is staying with Julia Hampton in Savannah, Georgia for a spell, and soon finds a purrfect opportunity to exercise his detective skills.
Julia may be a bona fide Southern belle, accustomed to all the trappings of wealth, but she’s a smart and dedicated art insurance investigator. However, when her office is trashed, she soon finds herself embroiled in a whole lot of intrigue over some missing Russian art.
Enter US Deputy, Mitch Lawson. Mitch and Julia soon find themselves teaming up as detectives, each bringing their own expertise to help one another, even though Julia has to get a little creative in order to stay involved.
Little do they know they have a silent partner…. A certain black cat aptly named ‘Trouble.’
‘I appreciate the Lawman’s sentiment. He has been charged with keeping Julia safe, but he has failed to take into consideration that I am on the job.”
I always love southern locations, but I thought the contrast between the Savannah locale and Russian art was a unique one. It may not seem like the two go together, but interestingly enough, they do.
I also enjoy anything to do with the Romanov period, including the art and priceless artifacts, so this was a fun topic for me to read about.
I thought the chemistry between Mitch and Julia was perfect and enjoyed their sweet romance, as well as the strong secondary characters, especially, Julia’s Aunt Ethel.
The mystery is fast-paced and adventurous with plenty of intrigue and of course ‘Trouble’ has the most hilarious and tender monologues! Is it wrong that I often look forward to hearing what ‘Trouble’ has to say more than anything else? LOL!
Overall, this is another fun and romantic installment in the ‘Fear Legacy’ series.
Old money, a beautiful heiress, stolen artwork, a U.S. Marshal, and a cat who has some major skills all come together to weave a wonderful journey through Savannah. Barrett has created a wonderful family that fits perfectly into the streets, architecture, clubs and museums of that Southern city.
Julia Hampton, much to her father's dismay, has become an investigator. Her office is broken into, and then her contact at the insurance company disappears. And it all gets more complicated from there. Through it all, Trouble manages to make his opinions clear.
As in the previous Trouble book, by Carolyn Haines, the story is told from three points of view - Trouble's, Julia's, and the Marshal, Mitch's. Each perspective is unique and entertaining.
My review is based on an ARC of the ebook. I usually prefer paper, but this tale kept me smiling so much I barely noticed I was reading on screen rather than hard copy.
And I can't wait to see what Trouble finds next.
An interesting cosy with twists and turns which had me guessing till the end.
Julia comes from wealth and gets involved in an insurance investigation that is loaded with secrets.
Trouble is never far from the action and out to solve the case.
Love the setting of Savannah and Julia's Aunt Ethel has quite a personality.
