Feral Attraction by Eileen Watkins is the third installment of the cozy A Cat Groomer Mystery series. Each book in the series has it’s own murder to be solved so they could be read as a standalone if choosing to do so. There is however a bit of character development from book to book for the fans of the entire series.

This series if centered around Cassie McGlone who had moved to the picturesque town of Chadwick to give herself a fresh start after leaving a horrible relationship. Cassie had opene

Who would possibly suspect that a trap neuter and release program for a feral cats colony at a retirement village could lead to murder? When Cassie , attends a board meeting for the retirement, she is confounded at the level of antagonism and the subsequent murder of the woman leading the program. Lots of valuable and interesting info about feral cats and a cracking good mystery. My only quibble with this book is with the cover art. I kept postponing reading this book, because I found the cover ...more

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book!

Of course, I was first attracted to this book by the beautiful cat on the front cover;who wouldn't be? His eyes just drawn you in! Then of course, I spotted that it was cozy mystery, one of my absolute favorite genres, so I was super excited to be given the chance to read it. Now, like with many series that I start in the middle, I want to read the books I've missed and more to come. Cassie already has an established set o

Feral Attraction, 3rd in A Cat Groomer Mystery Series, is an endearing novel that can be read as a standalone. I didn’t know anything about cat boarding or grooming, so I was happy to start a series with a unique specialty. It definitely doesn’t disappoint! The characters are a range of ages, from late 20’s to early 70’s, many of whom are pet lovers. The mystery is well-written, complex and challenging.

Feral Attraction is the third book in Eileen Watkins’ A Cat Groomer Mystery series. This is the first book I’ve read in this series, but I didn’t feel lost. The storyline is well plotted and the well-developed characters are likeable. The mystery is interesting and everything is tied up nicely.

Cassie McGlone is the owner of Cassie's Comfy Cats, which offers grooming and boarding for cats, and is dating Mark Coccia, a local veterinarian. Cassie’s best friend, Dawn Tischler, is trying to help save

Princess Fuzzypants here: As a cat, I am not particularly fond of the groomer. But I do enjoy this series and Cassie, the crazy cat lady who both makes kitties more beautiful but also provides regal lodging for us when our humans abandon us and go on trips. Her place sounds rather nice although I prefer to stay in my own palace and with all the things Cassie gets into, it is just as well.
This time she is corralled into going to a gated community where a feral cat problems has driven the resident

I really enjoyed the main character, Cassie. I felt like I could relate to her and just felt comfortable listening to the book in her voice. I picked this book for silly reasons and am glad I did. I picked it, because it was on the New table at our public library and because it had a black cat on the cover. He's so cute! I have cats at home, 2 of them are pure black, so I really did judge a book by its cover this time. LOL I was pleasantly surprised, since I don't remember the last time I read a ...more

When it comes to the subject of feral cats/colonies tempers can run very hot. Can that passion, for or against, lead to homicide? Cassie fears that the victim didn't die accidentally and sets out to dig into the world of TNR (trap, neuter and release/return) Not everybody at a local condo thinks feeding feral cats is the right thing to do but Cassie has been asked to get involved because of her cat grooming and boarding business, Cassie's Comfy Cats. Will Cassie be able to prove it was a homicid ...more

Community cats and TNR can really around heated and passionate discussion...but did it lead to murder? That's the question Cassie, Dawn, and Mark (Cassie's love interest who is a vet) try to answer when Sabrina, one of the most ardent supporters of the colony is found dead. This is good cozy territory, with a terrific protagonist in Cassie. It never gets too cutesy and you'll learn something about feral colonies. The mystery is fairly straightforward, a cat named Omen (love that) plays a role, a ...more

Always enjoy this series. This time around, Cassie has gone to speak up for a feral cat colony living near a closed community. One of the homeowners, Sabrina, has been caring for the ferals, but others feel the cats are dangerous/nuisances which will affect the value of their investment. When Sabrina turns up dead, it's rules death by natural causes-- until Cassie and friend Dawn decide to dig deeper. Good series that imparts information along with a mystery. The cover-- while charming-- doesn't ...more

Cat lovers will be attracted by the cute cover. All will enjoy the mystery. As I am dealing with a feral cat issue, I could truly relate to the problems involved. A little too woo woo at the very end, but a thoroughly enjoyable bit of entertainment. Thanks to the publisher for providing a copy via NetGalley.

Feral Attraction was the best of the series. I found the author got deeper into the characters and I found the plot intriguing. A cat lovers heaven series. Eileen showed us how to deal with a cat colony without causing any harm to the cats. I am looking forward to see how Cassie's relationship with Mark develops.

I really enjoyed this book. I like the characters and the deepening relationships we see between them. However, i find the author’s descriptions of POC quite problematic and othering. I don’t think it’s malicious but it’s off-putting in an otherwise enjoyable series.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review.

Read the previous two books. This one was a bit of a slog for me to get through. It felt formulaic and forced in parts. Which was a shame because I really enjoyed the first two books! Not sure i will check out number four.

I love this series and I loved this instalment. It's more complex and darker than the previous ones but it was a really enjoyable and a fun read.
I loved the idea of having the difficult cohesistence of a group of people with a feral colony, the victims and what they stand for.
The mystery kept guessing till the end it was lovely to meet again the cast of characters and see how things were evolving.
Highly recommended!
Many thanks to Kensington Books and Netgalley for this ARC

If you like/love cats this is a series for you. Cassie has a cat grooming business and somehow this always ties into a murder and of course helping cats. This time around Cassie's friend is involved in helping a feral cat colony when the leader (Sabrina) of the cat rescue is murdered. Does it have to do with the cat colony or Sabrina's prior activism?
This is the 3rd book in the series, but one doesn't need to read the others to enjoy this one.

I received an eARC from the publisher via NetGalley
