A Tiger’s Tale by Laura Morrigan is the second book in the “Call of the Wilde” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, May 2014
When a normally mellow tiger at a rescue facility trees a terrified vet, animal behaviorist Grace Wilde needs to use her psychic ability to get to the root of the problem.
A tiger can’t change his stripes—but if his behavior changes suddenly, there’s a reason. So when even-tempered Boris the Siberian tiger goes into attack mode, Grace knows there’s more to the story. Something is agitating the big cat. As she uses her telepathic ability to calm the tiger, she realizes he has witnessed a theft—not of something but of someone. A teenaged volunteer at the animal rescue facility has been taken…kidnapped.
The problem is Brooke Ligner’s parents believe their troubled daughter ran away and Grace can’t exactly reveal her source. Even though sexy cop Kai Duncan is aware of Grace’s secret ability, he can’t initiate an investigation based on the word of a tiger. Now, as Grace searches for solid clues to rescue the missing teen, it’s the human predators she’ll need to watch out for.
I enjoyed this “A Tiger’s Tale,” even more than the first book as we get to know more about Grace and her abilities. The author does a good job in keeping me interested and engaged in this delightfully charming whodunit. With some twists and turns and aided by an eclectic resource of friends and animals, I eagerly await the next book in the series, especially with how this one ended.
