Book Description from Goodreads:
Sarah Grayson owns Second Chance, a shop that sells lovingly refurbished items, in the charming town of North Harbor, Maine. But she couldn't run the store without the help of her right-hand man, Mac--or her dashing rescue cat, Elvis.

Mac's life before North Harbor has always been a little bit mysterious, but it becomes a lot more intriguing when a woman from his past shows up in town, and then turns up dead. Suspicion falls on Mac, but Sarah--and Elvis--know he can't be the killer, and they hope they can prove his innocence quick as a whisker.

My Review:
The Fast and the Furriest is a cozy mystery. It is the fifth book in the series, but you don't need to read the previous books to understand this one. This book did not spoil any of the previous mysteries.

The main characters were nice, engaging people. The amateur detectives asked questions and looked into various alibis. They solved the mystery more by the process of elimination than by building a case against someone. I felt like there was a lot of filler in the story. They seemed to put off asking the most pertinent questions even when the person they needed to ask was right there. While I did guess whodunit before the main characters, they didn't uncover the critical clue until nearly the end.

There were no sex scenes. There was occasional use of bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this enjoyable mystery.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
