When cat lover and quilter Jillian Hart volunteers to help a local animal shelter relocate a colony of feral cats living in an abandoned textile mill, she never expects to find a woman living there, too. Jeannie went missing from Mercy, South Carolina, a decade ago, after her own daughter's disappearance.

Jeannie refuses to leave the mill or abandon Boots, her cat who died years ago. After all, she and Boots feel the need to protect the premises from 'creepers' who come in the night. After Jeannie is hurt in an accident and is taken away, those who've come to town to help repurpose the mill uncover a terrible discovery. As the wheels start turning in Jillian's mind, a mysterious new feline friend aids in her quest to unearth a long-kept and dark secret.

A good, clean mystery. No sex, no gore and no bad language. A interestin story. I would rate it "G"

Light reading - great for a cold winter afternoon. Characters reasonably well developed - you can like all but the villain, - and the cats are delightful.

I loved this book. The discriptions of the cats' personalities is great and I found the textile information very accurrate. Or, how the town was discribed as town folks and the mill workers. I think most small towns have/had an industry like that.
