Claws for Suspicion by Deborah Blake

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing "Claws for Suspicion” the 3rd instalment in the Catskill Pet Rescue Mystery series by Deborah Blake.  I really enjoy this series and tend to read in one day as I become so engrossed in the story.
When someone from her past comes to town to cause trouble, Kari Stuart and her sassy kitten Queenie will have to work hard to protect the Serenity Sanctuary in this new Catskills Pet Rescue Mystery.

Kari Stuart is finally starting to relax into her role as the new owner of the Serenity Sanctuary and is looking forward to the various fun autumn activities in the beautiful Catskills town of Lakeview, like the annual Oktoberfest celebration. It’s time for friends and quality bonding with handsome vet Angus McCoy. Until the unexpected arrival of her unpleasant ex-husband, Charlie Smith.

He comes bearing a shocking revelation—the paperwork on their divorce never went through, and they are still married. Worse yet, he thinks this entitles him to half of her lottery winnings—although he'll happily take partial ownership of the sanctuary instead. Kari isn’t sure if he’s telling the truth, or if it’s just another one of Charlie’s lies.

But things go from bad to worse when an unexpected death makes Kari the main suspect in a murder investigation. Will she and Queenie be able to find the real killer and keep the home they’ve built at the sanctuary safe, or is their string of luck finally tapped out?
I enjoyed visiting Lakeview and Kari’s Serenity Sanctuary again. The book was well-written with wonderful characters, such as Kari and Suz along with the staff at Serenity Sanctuary.  I love Queenie the black kitten too!

We learn more about why Kari moved home in this instalment and a bit more into Bryan’s history too.

The mystery is interesting and well plotted, I kept guessing and second-guessing myself on whodunnit right to the very end.   
I'm really looking forward to the next book.

I recommend this book to all my cozy lover friends.
