    This is the second book in the pet whisperer PI series. In this book Angie and Octocat helps a dog to solve his owners murder. Octocat hates dogs, so Angie has to make him help her talk to the dog. Also in this book someone people finds out that Angie can talk to her cat. I do not want to say much more then that. You should just read the book. It is a quick fun read. I really enjoy this cozy mystery. (*)

She and Octo-Cat have to talk to the murder victims' little terrier dog to glean clues, before an innocent man is sent to prison. Fun story! This second book was just as entertaining and filled with humor and amateur sleuthing as the first book! I listened to the audio book (Tantor Audio) version of this story. Narrated by Ann Richardson, the audio is about 4 hours long -- easy listening length. Richardson does a great job of voice acting. She has a pleasant voice and reads at a nice pace. All in all, an entertaining listening experience! I love the book covers for this series! So cute and eye-catching! The stories are easy reading length...not too short, not too long. Just right! I like the characters, the basic premise and the plots. Just fun, entertaining reads! On to the next book -- Hairless Harrassment!

    Another fun little story about Angie and Octocat! I did wonder in the first book if it was just Octocat that Angie could talk to, or if other animals were included as well. Turns out she needs Octocat to translate, and he definitely doesn't like dogs! Still, if Angie wants to help her cute new colleague keep his job, and save an innocent man from prison, then they need to make it work! I'm not going to lie, these aren't glorious masterpieces. They are cute, sometimes silly, short cozy mysteries. Another fun little story about Angie and Octocat!

They have a host of characters that is growing with each book, and present the slightly different take on the animal cozy genre in that animals can talk. Angie isn't your usual sleuth either, since she's a paralegal, but everything works. I'm looking forward to more from this series on May 30th!

    “Terrier Transgressions (Pet Whisperer P.I. #2)” continues the adventure of Angie Russo trying to solve a murder with the help of her cat (Octocat). An attorney (Charles Longfellow III) at the law firm is defending his client of double murder charges, and when he sees Angie facetiming with her cat on her iPad, he blackmails her into using her ability to speak with animals to help.

Octocat is even more annoying than in the first book, but I continue to like Angie’s character. As with book 1, “Terrier Transgressions” was selected as part of a road trip with friends. Our group criteria was (1) no lesfic and (2) no explicit hetero action. Angie’s crush on Charles is pretty tame, and so this book met the criteria. Octocat was interested in solving his own former owner’s murder, but doesn’t much want to be bothered having to talk with a dog…whom he deems far inferior to cats, of course. The narration was very good once again, but I rate “Terrier Transgressions” 3*, mostly because Octocat was so annoying.

    Since Charles Longfellow III started working at Thompson and Associates, paralegal Angie Russo has had a crush on him. Charles saw Angie talking to her cat Octo-Cat, and he convinces her to help him defend a client accused of a double murder. Charles has sort of inherited the deceased's Yorkie Yo-Yo; he hopes Angie can talk to the dog. But it doesn't quite work that way, and she needs her cat's help. Do cats and dogs speak the same language?

Do cats and dogs speak the same language? Readers who haven't read the first book will still be able to follow without a problem, although they will have missed quite a bit of fun, but Molly Fitz briefly recaps the essential, and off we go! TERRIER TRANSGRESSIONS is just as entertaining and easy to read as the first book, and Octo-Cat (whom I still call Octavius, or Octo - even though it seems the cat dislikes it; I just can't stand that nickname!) had me laughing out loud again; he is such a cat! Yo-Yo is the excitable little pooch you would expect, and unreadable for Angie. I love that Angie actually works; her detecting is indirectly part of her job, and there are again work-related issues. For a cozy mystery, it's rather unusual, but more realistic and very welcome. We have the recurring characters: Mr. Thompson, Angie's staid boss, Bethany, a lawyer, who's now more friend than frenemy, Angie's anchorwoman mother - who's complicating matters, and Nan, Angie's wonderful grandmother. Again, this book is very well written, it's an extremely quick read because it flows so well, although there are a few (very few) perplexing typos which should have easily been caught. The manuscript was obviously spellchecked, however I doubt it was proofread by a person. Spellcheck would not have caught "murderers" where it should have been "murders", and "whicker" when the word should have been "wicker", whereas a person would have (hopefully). I am also pleased to see that Nan is more involved in the investigating. There are a couple of excerpts from the upcoming releases at the end of the book, and I like where the series is going. This is unusual coming from me, but the characters and their interactions matter more to me than the actual mystery! They're fun, light, uncomplicated stories from an author who really understands cats. Bring on the next book!

    I think I'm getting used to the talking cat in this series, because this book didn't feel as absurd as the first. Well, still a little, but that was mostly funny. I also felt the mystery part had become more mysterious. So I guess Molly Fitz has just gotten better at it! I can't wait to read the next one!

    Maybe 3.5? There's just one plot point that kinda irked me -- it seemed too contrived and the rest of the story relied on it. And yes, I know we're talking about a human who can understand cat, but still. lol Continue to love Octacat. He's such a character and says exactly what I imagine all the cats I have known would say in similar circumstances. Plus he's not keen on acting as translator for a member of the inferior canine species. He's such a snob! A funny, short cozy mystery. Maybe 3.5?

    This is another fun tale starring Octo-Cat and his owner, Angie. Owner probably isn’t quite the right word, since Angie spends much time catering to Octo-Cat’s whims. In this mystery, a terrier is the only eyewitness to his owners’ murders, but he is so traumatized, he has blocked it out. To further complicate matters, Angie’s questions have to be funneled through a reluctant Octo-Cat, because she can’t communicate with the dog. Other issues compound her sleuthing, but she perseveres.

    Went back and read #2 in the series, which I had missed. In this book, a couple are murdered in their home and the only witness is a little terrier. However, he has blanked this out of his mind and can't tell Octo-Cat what happened. He must remember, in order to save an innocent man from going to jail. Cute, but still feel they are written for a much younger age group. Went back and read #2 in the series, which I had missed.

    Oh man...Octo Cat has won my heart! Spoiled? Yep. In charge of his human? Yep. All the characters are great, especially Nan, Angie Russo's grandmother.

    Angie and Octo-Cat are back and this time they are going to help a dog! Octo-Cat is not very happy to help the little yappy dog to figure out who killed his people. Angie enlists the help of a new associate, who may be blackmailing her, to find the murderer. Another fun adventure.

    Terrier Transgressions was my first Pet Whisperer P.I. book that I've read and to be honest, I didn't truly read the description of the book, but grabbed it because I love cozy mysteries. Cozies are light, fun, mysteries that aren't overly intense, but generally treat the reader to a good whodunnit. The fact that the main character carries on conversations with her cat was a bit silly, but it made for a cute story.

The story wasn't very deep and it closed rather conveniently without much suspense at all throughout but I liked it more than I thought I would. I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for an uninvolved, fluff mystery to read throughout the course of an evening. It has a happy ending and all the characters are likable, but it'll wrap up the story without allowing the reader to really learn anything about the characters beyond the fact that they're all nice and likable. I probably won't continue on this series because I like a bit more "meat" to my stories but for a good and quick beach read, this will do the trick. I received this book via Hidden Gems Books and am voluntarily writing this honest review.

    As soon as I finished book 1, I immediately jumped into book 2. And who knows, it's just as good! Maybe even a little bit better. (view spoiler)[I didn't like the fact that Angie liked being black-mailed but uh... whatever floats your boat, I guess? Also when Yo-Yo said he has to be strong for his human I just... I nearly cried. (hide spoiler)] As soon as I finished book 1, I immediately jumped into book 2. And who knows, it's just as good! Maybe even a little bit better.

It doesn’t hurt that she gets paid a sweet sum every month to care for him, but keeping the feline in the manner he is accustomed, including Evian from the bottle, is no small cost. The darling boy called Angie at work from his iPad one day, most distressed, as there was a fly in his Evian. She thought everyone in the office was out to lunch, otherwise she wouldn’t have answered at her desk. Her new pet whisperer status is kept a secret from almost everyone, especially those at work. Oops. The new, very debonair attorney, Charlies Longfellow III happened upon Angie as she tried to problem-solve the fly in the water with the hoity-toity kitty. It doesn’t take long for the lawyer to “get” that Angie and Octo-Cat were conversing. In exchange for his silence, she has to help him with a little project. Charles has a new client, a young man accused of murdering a couple in the home they were selling. Charles has come across the traumatized pup of the former owners, Yo-Yo, a neurotic Yorkie who still wants to go back home. Yo-Yo may be the only being who knows who really killed them. Angie’s end of the bargain? She, with help from Octo-Cat, need to help Yo-Yo lead them to the real bad guy. Wow. No small request there! The characters – in this case Angie, Charles, Octo-Cat, Yo-Yo, and the realtor are defined as needed for their roles. Octo-Cat sounds like a little monster at times!! There might be times it’s good that I don’t understand what my cats say! He and Angie are starting to grow on each other, so I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for their relationship. Angie has been crushin’ on Charles and tries to act interested only in the case they are working on without sticking her foot in her mouth. With regards to the narrator on the audiobook version, I really like her! She captures the engaging and delightful personality of Angie and Octo-Cat’s ‘tude. The mystery is a challenge; I didn’t figure it out! I highly recommend this to anyone who likes hard-to-solve mysteries, LOL humor, feisty cats, and sweet, intelligent heroines. From a thankful heart: I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook; a review was not required (also have the e-book).

The office is deserted when Angie gets a call from Octo-Cat who is unnerved that there is a fly in is Evian and he wants Angie to come home right away to deal with the situation (he is a tad bit spoiled). Angie is so busy talking to Octo-Cat on her iPad that she does not notice Charles come up behind her. In order to keep her special gift a secret, Charles wants her help on his latest case. Brock Calhoun is accused of murdering Ruth and Bill Hayes. Public opinion is against Brock and it does not help that a certain local reporter (aka Angie’s mother) will be doing an hour long special on the crime. Charles has a witness that he wishes Angie to question—Yo-Yo, the Hayes’ Yorkshire Terrier. Angie needs Octo-Cat’s assistance in talking to the hyper little pup who has the gall to lick the persnickety canine on his face. Unfortunately, Yo-Yo has blocked his parents murder and is unaware of their passing. Angie decides to do a little digging and enlists Nan’s assistance. Nan’s acting talents and charm come in handy in getting people to open up to them. Angie cannot believe what her life has become since she was shocked by the coffee pot. Will Angie, Charles, Nan, Octo-Cat and Yo-Yo be able to prove Brock’s innocence? Terrier Transgressions is the second hair raising tale in the Pet Whisperer PI series. Angie Russo was shocked when she plugged in an ancient coffee pot and woke up being able to talk to Octo-Cat. Angie and Octo-Cat have settled into a routine which basically means Angie giving into the cat’s numerous demands (he has his own iPad). I thought Terrier Transgressions contained good writing and moved along at a fast clip. I like Molly Fitz’s engaging writing style. While Terrier Transgressions can be read alone, I recommend reading Kitty Confidential first. Terrier Transgressions is a humorous cozy mystery that will have you laughing from the first chapter to the last. Octo-Cat plus Nan provide witty commentary and they are such over-the-top characters. I loved Octo-Cat’s reaction to the harness and leash that Angie purchased. My favorite line from Terrier Transgressions comes from Octo-Cat who says, “I am a cat, not a common mouth breathing dog.” You can certainly tell Octo-Cat’s opinion of dogs. The ending left me chuckling and eager to pick up Hairless Harassment.

    Since Mr. Fulton’s hasty departure, the firm has taken on a new associate, Charles Longfellow III, and assigned him what promises to be a no-win case: a local couple, Bill and Ruth Hayes, were slain in their soon-to-be-sold home, and there are no witnesses, only the circumstantial evidence that the slayings were committed with handyman Brock Calhoun’s hammer. But when Charles happens to catch Angie Face-Timing with Octo-Cat (there’s a fly in his Evian!), he grabs on to his one chance to prove hi Since Mr. Fulton’s hasty departure, the firm has taken on a new associate, Charles Longfellow III, and assigned him what promises to be a no-win case: a local couple, Bill and Ruth Hayes, were slain in their soon-to-be-sold home, and there are no witnesses, only the circumstantial evidence that the slayings were committed with handyman Brock Calhoun’s hammer. But when Charles happens to catch Angie Face-Timing with Octo-Cat (there’s a fly in his Evian!), he grabs on to his one chance to prove his client’s innocence: have Octo-Cat interview Yo-Yo, the dead couple’s Yorkshire terrier, to see if he can help them find out who murdered his family. The feline agrees on one condition: that Angie owes him a favor. Little Yo-Yo is frantic when Octo-Cat asks him about the deaths — he’s not aware that his owners are no longer amongst the living — so Angie and Charles look for other clues. Nan and Angie visit Bill’s workplace, Bayside Printing, which is quiet and empty of customers, except for a woman waiting in the lobby to pick up her order. Then they join Charles for a walk in Yo-Yo’s neighborhood, where he demonstrates a very clear antagonism toward a FOR SALE sign bearing the image of local realtor — and sister of the defendant — Breanne Calhoun, who’s paying her brother’s legal fees. And when he gives Octo-Cat one more clue about the person who locked him in the closet with his owners, Angie, Nan, and Charlie zoom in on the estate agent and one other woman — the Hayes’ college-aged daughter, Michelle. Using both shoeleather techniques and modern technology, Angie and Octo-Cat not only suss out the killer, but manage to sic the local TV investigative reporter — Laura Lee, Angie’s mother — as the police descend. Suddenly Brock Calhoun is rendered innocent and the formerly unwinnable case more than successful. And that favor Angie promised Octo-Cat? It’s a lot more … manorly … than Angie anticipated.

    “…Whatever the case, it wasn’t fair for Thompson to move him clear across the country only to set him up to fall on the sword at the first available opportunity.

She’s still working there, in part because she’s crushing on the newest associate: Charles Longfellow III. He’s been assigned a very weird case defending an accused murderer of two people simply trying to sell a house. He’s also taking care of the deceased couple’s Yorkshire Terrier: Yo-Yo. Turns out Yo-Yo may be the most desirable witness to what actually happened. When Charles hears Angie and Octo-Cat talking one morning, he thinks maybe Angie might get Yo-Yo to tell who killed his humans....question is, will Octo-Cat climb down to a “dog’s level” to actually communicate with the little guy. Then, can they clear their client? Molly Fitz writes high spirited really fun cosy mysteries. Short, sweet and to the point. As much as I love Angie and her grandmother, Octo-Cat and his superior cat-tatude are a bit over the top...which in some strange reasoning makes th whole thing work! Highly Recommended 5/5

    I loved this book , where else can you get told off by a cat? I like getting a perspective on life through the cats eyes and I think the author has nailed the animals perfectly, being a cat and dog owner at one time I find it funny when Octo-Cat and even Dumb-Dumb do something my animals use to do. The characters are fun especially Octo-Cat and Nan and can't wait to start reading the next book. The mystery was good and I didn't work out who the killer was despite the clues.

Angie is caught at work talking to her cat on the ipad and in order to keep her secret she is blackmailed into helping Charles to prove his client is innocent of the murder he is accused of committing. The only witness to the grizzly murder is a dog and Charles wants her to talk to the dog. When that doesn't work the pair have to broker a truce between the oldest feuding pair there is, Dog V Cat and to top is all off they are up against the clock as Angie's own mother is going to do an expose on the case. Can old grudges be put aside for the greater good or will Angie end up owing Octo-Cat more than she can afford?

    What an enjoyable cozy mystery this was-I have already purchased the 1st in the series and have the 3rd on pre order. I still can't seem to get and read books in order-but it really did not matter with this one. It can be read as a stand alone! Try and imagine that you can actually talk to your cat and he can talk back! Kinda frightening actually. Cats truly believe that they are the masters and you are their slave-they will go to any length to train you properly or retrain as the case may be (ju What an enjoyable cozy mystery this was-I have already purchased the 1st in the series and have the 3rd on pre order.

Try and imagine that you can actually talk to your cat and he can talk back! Kinda frightening actually. Cats truly believe that they are the masters and you are their slave-they will go to any length to train you properly or retrain as the case may be (just ask my cat if you don't believe me). But can Octo-Cat (a VERY spoiled cat) be convinced to help find the murderers of a small Yorkie's human Mom and Dad. He and his slave may be able to talk to each other--but dog talk-only Octo-Cat can do that--and Octo doesn't particularly like dogs! Will they track down the murderer with the help of Nan and exonerate the person accused of the murder? Will the little Yorkie be able to overcome his block of the memory and pinpoint the true murderer? You will have to read this sometimes funny cozy to find out!

    Angie is a paralegal that was electrocuted and now can speak to the cat that she named Octo-Cat that she inherited from the last case she worked on. There was a big shakeup at the law firm that she works at and now a new lawyer named Charles is working there. She kind of has the hots for him. He discovers her secret of being able to speak to her cat and now he want to use her to talk to a terrier named Yo-Yo that was present during the murder of his humans. Her whole family gets involved in the Angie is a paralegal that was electrocuted and now can speak to the cat that she named Octo-Cat that she inherited from the last case she worked on.

He discovers her secret of being able to speak to her cat and now he want to use her to talk to a terrier named Yo-Yo that was present during the murder of his humans. Her whole family gets involved in the investigation of who killed the terrier’s parents. The relationship between Angie and her cat is like a teenager and a parent, it was a funny banter between the two. I like the second book better since Angie seemed to have grown up and figure out what she wants to do instead of barely existing. With the help of Yo-Yo the terrier and Octo-Cat Angie and her team figured out who the real murderer was and why they were killed. A funny cozy mystery with some talking animals. I received an ARC and I voluntarily reviewed this book.

    Disclaimer: I won this book from the author. I enjoyed reading this story. The characters were interesting. The mystery was good. The scenarios seemed to be at least possible, if you grant that a human can understand a cat (and that a cat can read English, work an iPad, etc.). I like stories that involve animals and humans working together. I haven't read the first book, so I don't know what started the series. I had no trouble understanding the characters.

I like stories that involve animals and humans working together. I haven't read the first book, so I don't know what started the series. I had no trouble understanding the characters. From thoughts the main character had, the first book appears to have had a scarier ending. I do wonder why no one tried to call Angie when she left the group near the end. I would like to read more books in the Blueberry Bay series. Note: I do not think I received an advance copy, but as far as I can tell, books 1-9 of this (currently) 16 book series were all published in 2019. If the book is reprinted, I hope the extra "me" on page 148 is removed. Grammar and spelling errors frustrate me because they interrupt the flow of the story.

    Her secret is no secret any longer! Terrific. I really adore the snarky comebacks from Octo Cat and his superior attitude. A great plot of a double murder with only one witness - a traumatised Yorkie by the name Yo Yo or as our favourite feline puts it Dum Dum. Wonderful characters, great dialogue and some really humorous scenes. An iPad call from he cat is witnessed by her colleague. Now he wants her to use her skill to question a murder witness.

A great plot of a double murder with only one witness - a traumatised Yorkie by the name Yo Yo or as our favourite feline puts it Dum Dum. Wonderful characters, great dialogue and some really humorous scenes. An iPad call from he cat is witnessed by her colleague. Now he wants her to use her skill to question a murder witness. The only problem is, is that the dog is not only traumatised but she can't understand him. Asking a favour from Octo Cat is probably not in her best interests but it has to be done. Now the two humans and the animals are on the case but they have a limit set on them. They only have a few days! Enter Nan. Shenanigans and caper follow as they try to piece together of what happened. Will they do it before the time limit? Who else will find out her secret?
