Sarah Grayson, proprietor of Second Chances shop, has a new assignment—cleaning out the estate of Edison Hall.  Known about town as a collector or sorts…okay, many of us would say hoarder, Sarah and her employee/friends know they have their work cut out for them.  What they don’t expect to find is a dead body.

More than once Sarah has said she is so not getting involved with Charlotte’s Angels—a self-named…detective…agency run by several area senior citizens.  The thing is, they usually manage to find the killer.  This time, however, it looks like seniors may be who the killer is targeting.

I’ve been enjoying Sofie Ryan’s Second Chance Cat Mysteries mostly because of the star of the series, Elvis the cat.  Ryan has cats and cat behaviors down pat and Elvis is so fun to read.  In Ryan’s latest, A WHISKER OF TROUBLE Elvis has a much larger role in the story which made it all the more enjoyable for me.

In A WHISKER OF TROUBLE the author delves into what seems to be a growing area of concern—cons being perpetrated on senior citizens.  Ryan does a good job of building up to how it can happen – and even better, has justice done.  

Nothing about this addition to the series really stands out for me.  It was a good read, but nothing special except for Elvis’s scenes.

I will definitely continue with the series if it continues because the characters are likeable and the cases they solve issues I can relate to.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
