    uestion If a book is a mystery and a cat and a dog have significant parts what subgenre of mystery is it?Answer Most likely a cozy unless the book is Hide and Seek by Amy Shojai If you’ve picked up this book thinking you’re about to read a cozy you’ll be very surprised In fact you should walk away from the bookIf on the other hand you’d like a good deal of nailbiting suspense a fair amount of psychological distress both past and current uite a bit of action and even a little humor here and there and yes a pair of pets you’d like to call your own then you’ve come to the right placeMs Shojai weaves a tale of intersecting plotlines that range from the highly uestionable behavior of a reality show’s star and host to a death that causes untold stress in a woman damaged by her own past to the playful antics of Macy and Shadow a cat and dog that share a home with September Day In the early stages Macy is the only one of the trio who isn’t in some sort of psychological recovery but then Macy becomes the focus of a search for a lot of answers not the least of which is who—or what—is making people and animals so sick?A menace from September’s painful past a missing woman a little girl who loves kitties a smarmy tabloid reporter all contribute to a story rich in tension and uncertainty as well as the many emotional attachments we all have in our lives In the long run it was the latter that really got my attention and Ms Shojai is eually adept at making those attachments believable whether they’re of the animal or human variety and spending time with Macy and Shadow was especially enjoyable in those uiet moments that relieve the anxiety of the core thrillerThere are occasions when we see the action through Shadow’s eyes and instincts but readers who prefer animals not be anthropomorphic need not be concerned—Shadow does not tell the tale nor does he do any sleuthingHide and Seek is a story full of surprises and I’m looking forward to spending much time with this little family in the next book and all that will followReviewed by Lelia Taylor June 2014

    Hide Seek is the second book in Amy Shojai's September Day series In the first book Lost Found we met September as well as meeting Shadow the dog This second book gives us a in depth look at September's past and how it has formed who she is today Along with this exploration we get exposure to Texan reality TV and the issue of feral pigs While we do re acuaint ourselves with some of the characters from the first book we also meet community members and get a better sense of the community that September lives in This book is packed with suspense and I love how Shojai started out with several seemingly separate story lines and then skillfully brought them together as the climax approached This is an excellent book and I recommend it for anybody that enjoys mystery and suspense

    Thoughts so far I love it that September named her cello and what a cool name Melody I like it that we get to hear things from Shadow’s perspective good dogSeptember Day is an expert with animals Her German Shepard is a service dog originally trained for an autistic boy You will find out who that boy really is in this book and there was about him in the previous book called Lost and Found September uses Shadow as her service dog now as she has PTSD from an awful experience in her past She does not allow anyone to get close to her afraid they will be hurt I had actually read about the problem with feral pigs in Texas and this book brings that issue to light with a reality show They have local hunters going out and shooting them I loved how the author tied all the characters together and made it all make sense Great book

    I found the second book in the September Day series a compelling medical thriller well written with careful attention to detail Previews for the book suggested this was a “dog viewpoint” thriller The story is actually told from multiple points of view with the most intriguing perspective offered by Shadow the protagonist’s service dog The inclusion of the dog’s perspective added a uniue twist to this thrillerThe author is a certified animal behavior consultant and her love of animals clearly shines through her writing It’s also clear that she is an avid researcher committed to delving deep into the details that comprise the medical elements of the plot While I enjoyed and appreciated the details about animal training particularly the vocabulary training exercises the medical information was presented at length at multiple points in the story slowing the pace a bit for me This might well be however merely a reflection of my personal interests; regular readers of medical thrillers will likely appreciate this element of the plotWith multiple characters and story lines introduced early in the book readers might find it helpful to read the series in order The first book is Lost and Found I’d recommend this book to fans of thriller and suspense fiction and anyone who loves animals in high suspense mysteriesDisclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from Partners In Crime I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”

    HIDE AND SEEK proves Shojai's masterful skill at blending ripped from the headlines urgency with an emotional story of real characters in escalating dangers Add in revelatory dose of animal psychology and behavior and you have a thriller that had me turning pages deep into the night Here is a novel written with authority and with a deft brilliance that any lover of animals or nerve jangling thrillers will cherish James Rollins New York Times bestseller of The Eye of God HIDE AND SEEK is a creepy must read mystery for animal lovers Animal behaviorist Amy Shojai knows her stuff JT Ellison NYT bestselling author of When Shadows Fall Featuring a young animal behaviorist struggling to regain her bearings after a shocking betrayal a reality TV show gone horribly wrong and a series of murders and disappearances seemingly related to an unthinkable cause HIDE AND SEEK is a mysterythriller you won’t be able to put down Alan Leverone best selling thriller author of Mr Midnight and The Lonely Mile If you’re a fan of medical thrillers by the likes of Robin Cook or Michael Palmer you will absolutely love this book If you enjoy a well written mystery featuring a lot of animals you will also love it Just don’t plan on picking it up unless you have some extra free time Ingrid King of THE CONSCIOUS CAT Read the rest of the review here

    If you liked Amy's first novel you will definitely like this one too Just as much action and an even creepier bad guy it definitely stands up as a seuel

    35 stars I received an audiobook copy from the author in exchange for an honest review; this in no way affects my opinions although I am grateful to the author Amy Shojai for the opportunity to listen and review her work Hide and Seek is the second book in the September Day series and starts off a few weeks after Lost and Found leaves off While Lost and Found does not end with a cliffhanger I think that reading it first will greatly enhance your understanding of this second book in the series This book starts off a lot slower and I found it a bit difficult to see where all the pieces fit into place There were so many different subplots going in so many different directions that at times I felt a bit discombobulated or disoriented It kept skipping around and it wasn't until about 65 70% of the way through the book until the picture starts to emerge Lots of little clues are dropped along the way that you must be aware of as they are important later on I don't say any of this as a negative per se I say it as it was uite the departure from the first book This book was like different balls rolling in slowly from different directions but once they come together and get going it's like an avalanche or an unstoppable train I love the alternating points of view between September and Shadow the dog You would think a dog's POV would be cheesy or childish but no Amy Shojai knows so much about animals and their behavior that this adds to the experience of the story and makes fiction an educational experience I am definitely looking forward to listening to or reading the next book in the series as they are creative fun suspenseful and exciting These are not cozy mysteries and are not for the faint of heartI listened to the audio version so I cannot comment on any spellinggrammarformatting issues The audio is narrated by the author Amy herself You can tell this is not a professional recording and thus should be priced accordingly It is a bit tinny and there are a few faint crackles This did not detract from my listening experience though as I was used to it after the first few minutes and I am not all that picky Her performance is great and she does a great job of differentiating between all the many characters in dialogue and narrator It would be great as a Whispersync add on for only a couple bucks I enjoyed listening to this book while driving and my horse especially liked listening to Amy's voice as I was with him

    Hide And Seek is the second book in the September Day series by Amy Shojai but it is the first book I have read written y her This is by no means your mother’s cozy animal mystery It is an excellent edge of the seat psychological thriller A trio consisting of one woman one dog and one cat face the threat from the past and the present day danger together Instead of being alone there is a whole host of others who are also on their side Despite the trust issues that abound in this group they work as a team and family making it an emotional story along with the hair raising suspenseful I was surprised but pleased by the role that the animals played in this book They are major to the story being part of some of my favorite scenes The plot is intricate with connecting lines that bring about a finish that I was afraid wouldn’t happened but it did perfectly Here’s to “the chosen family” New Year’s or any day of the year The publisherauthor gave me a complimentary ARC of the book which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed All thoughts and opinions are my own

    This is the second book in the series September Day is an interesting character She appears strong but has issues from her past which effects her relationship with her family She has a dog and cat who are much like companion animals September gets involved in a situation that involves contaminated pork which affects animals and possibly people A reporter gets killed her cat is kidnapped the local Vet Tech gets killed All revolving around her “stalker” September makes bad decessions which aggravated me as a reader; she gets into situations bc of her poor choices Her dog is an awesome character All ends happily I felt sorry that the Vet Tech got killed I like his character and what he brought to the story line The book started with details of everyone involved in the story which made it drag I thought there could have been a better way I read book one and I’m not sure if I’ll read book 3
