Kat Wolfe Investigates: A Wolfe & Lamb Mystery by Lauren St. John

Kat and her mother move to a small town in a cove who needs a veterinarian.  Thy are lucky enough that housing is included.  Soon, Kat decides to take on pet sitting so she can earn enough to buy her own laptop.  She has no idea what trouble that will lead her to...

Farrar, Straus, and Giroux Books for Young Readers and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 9th.

Her first customer is a man with a parrot.  He has to go on trip and wants her to care for his bird.  She agrees.  But when she goes to the house the next day, the door isn't shut and she finds his suitcase on the floor only partially packed.  She waits the 24 hours needed to turn it in.  The suitcase is missing and the cop thinks she may be lying to him.  He tends to ignore her.

She's made a new friend (she's taking care of her horse) and they decide to investigate themselves.  It's a plot thirty years old with Russians involved and her estranged grandfather in the middle.

It's a good mystery and I liked the interaction between the two girls and the animals.  I'd read another in this series.
