Synopsis: “As much fun as catnip,”* Gabriella Herkert’s Catnapped was nothing to be sniffed at. Now legal investigator and “hilarious heroine”* Sara Townley returns in a case that’s gone to the dogs…
After accidentally treating her in-laws to a peep show upon their first meeting, then being dragged into a catfight with her husband’s vengeful ex, Sara hopes her next case is a simple one. The case of a philanthropist's stolen identity seems right up her alley—that is, until it finds her in a seedy back street. And when Sara narrowly escapes becoming the case's first casualty—a fate awaiting her one and only witness—she realizes it's no gravy train.
In the meantime, Sara seems to have picked up a sidekick: a big, black Labrador who shows up at every turn. And since her only lead is growing cold in the morgue, maybe following the dog’s nose isn’t such a bad idea...
