Jillian, Tom and Candice are back with their many cats for another cozy murder mystery. In this episode Tom's brother has moved into his home (uninvited), his stepson has shown up covered in blood and his ex-wife is up to something. It's up to Jillian to solve the mystery and save the day...and with her daughter-in-law being the editor of the local newspaper perhaps she can even keep the high crime rate in Mercy from getting any unwanted attention. The Cats in Trouble mysteries aren't all that surprising. They are written to a formula and all of the books with the exception of #5, The Cat, the Mill and the Murder follow the same basic pattern. It's not a criticism, I enjoy these books a lot...but they aren't the sort of books you can read one after another.
