Goodreads Synopsis:

After a break-in at their London home, Kat Wolfe and her veterinary-surgeon mum decide it’s time to move to the country. Dr Wolfe’s new job in idyllic Bluebell Bay on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast comes with a condition: they have to adopt Tiny, a huge, near-wild Savannah, who resists Kat’s best attempts at cat whispering.

When she starts a pet-sitting agency to make pocket money, her troubles escalate. The owner of her first client, an Amazon parrot, vanishes from his fortified, gadget-filled mansion, leaving a half-packed suitcase and a mysterious parcel. The only person who shares Kat’s conviction that he’s the victim of foul play is Harper Lamb, the American daughter of a palaeontology professor. A language and coding whizz, Harper is laid up with two broken legs thanks to her racehorse, the ‘Pocket Rocket’ – Kat’s newest client. What starts out as mystery-solving holiday fun quickly turns deadly for Wolfe and Lamb. When all clues point to an army base, can they count on their unruly animal friends to save the day – and their lives?

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I got this book from the Pan Macmillan South Africa's title showcase earlier this year so when I realised that this book came out in May, I jumped at the chance to read this book. I've read one book written by the author last month and I was not too in love with it so I am intrigued to see what I think about this book.

Thank you so much to Pan Macmillan South Africa for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, what I read wasn't that bad. I just found that the voice of the main character was really young and that did not really work for me. I liked the whole concept of the book. I think that there are some pretty cool messages in between the lines. The writing was not bad, the author is clearly practiced but she also knows her audience quite well. The plot was interesting and definitely started off strong. This book is absolutely perfect for young girls. Thank you so much to Pan Macmillan South Africa for providing me with a copy of the book.

Yours in Reading,
