Product Description

Product Description

The festive season should be a time for generosity and goodwill, but in Glasgow, Leger finds that is not the case. His human companion's attempt to raise funds for a CAT scanner for a local hospital has been thwarted by a callous thief who has stolen decorations from her seasonal garden display. Now Leger resolves to mend Annabella's broken heart by finding the thief.

With Ginger nursing her newborn kittens, Isabella confusing him with erratic behaviour and Bob more interested in Hugh's discarded slipper than helping solve this mystery, Leger's only clue comes from an unexpected source - a chocoholic mouse named Nigel.

The heroic Glaswegian cat sleuth returns and this time, he has to go it alone.

The Leger - Cat Sleuth Mysteries are suitable for all the family, however parents are advised to exercise caution when allowing children to read them due to Leger's recreational catnip use!

More About the Author

Lacey Dearie is an indie author who was born and raised in Scotland. Before taking up the challenge of becoming a full time writer she worked in a number of different jobs and studied Family Law at the University of Strathclyde. However, being a writer is what she has enjoyed most.

She is the creator of the Leger - Cat Sleuth Mysteries Series about a talking Glaswegian cat detective. She has also enjoyed success with her first novel, The Tangled Web (although like many authors now wishes she could erase her earlier works from existence) and the surreal short story, Baked! about talking cakes.

Lacey is currently planning to continue the Leger series with a few more novelettes and a full length novel and will keep writing about her heroic Glaswegian cat sleuth for as long as he remains popular with readers. She also published another short story about talking food this summer and is publishing her second chick-lit novel around September 2014.

In her spare time she loves to travel and is a regular visitor to Cyprus. She also has a personal blog dedicated to lingerie and fragrances and plans to start another sharing allergy friendly recipes.

Lacey loves to hear from her readers and can be contacted on Twitter as @laceydearie or on her Facebook page

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute! Cute! Cute! I thought this was a very cute book. What with the animals talking to each other and lever talking to her male 11 April 2014

This was the first Lever mystery book I've read. Yes, I did like it!! It made you fall in love with all the animals as they conversed with each other. Lever was also able to talk to the male of the house.The book was easy to follow with good language being used. A light mystery - even a cat was able to solve the case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leger's Gift 15 Feb 2014
By Janie Dills - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the fifth in the Leger the Cat Sleuth cozy mystery series. In this installment, Leger has to uncover who is stealing Christmas decorations from his human Annabelle's garden. Annabelle has decorated her garden especially nice this Christmas to attract visitors in order to raise money for their town's hospital. This hospital is the place that took such good care of her husband, Hugh, when he was attacked in the first Leger episode that inspired Leger to become a cat sleuth. The hospital is in need of a new CAT Scan & Annabelle wants to help raise money to donate toward the purchase. Leger's investigation leads him to a very unlikely source of who is stealing the decorations. It also leads him to gain the assistance of another unlikely ally in uncovering the truth. Ms. Dearie is quite adept at keeping one's attention riveted to the storyline until you have found out for yourself how it ends. This is quite an enjoyable read, especially for those who may not have time for a longer novel.

Wonderful tale of a crafty intelligent cat sleuth and his friends helping humans all the while wondering why the people aren't happy with mice as a nice gift. I'll pass these on to my older grandchildren only after I am good and done with them. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Leger! 23 Jan 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In thIs latest story Leger's human, Annabelle, is devastated when the beautiful Christmas display she created to raise money for the local hospital is destroyed. Every night one piece of the display has disappeared. The funds collected were to be a Thank You to the hospital for the excellent care given to her husband, Hugh, after he been attacked and injured. Who would do such a terrible thing? Leger investigates the crime with the aid of his animal friends and what he finds is very upsetting and totally unexpected.

Leger the cat is such a loveable character as are his animal friends. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars LEGER - Cat Sleuth Extraordinaire and All Round Nice Guy 14 Jan 2014
By WendyeLou - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
OH LEGER! What an all round nice guy you are! Not only are you a detective extraordinaire but you care about your friends. I think Amber and you might end up being very good friends PLUS I think Ginger might also agree. I can see you now being a good role model for Ginger's boys. BTW, I LOVE how you're introduced to Nigel (the mouse). Don't tease Nigel too much Sweetie - I think he may be another great sidekick for you. Oh, have you checked on Dave the hedgehog lately? LOVE YOU LEGER!!! I look forward to seeing you again in Leger's Love. xo xo xo xo xo xo
