A compelling middle-grade mystery from Lauren St John, the bestselling author of the Blue Peter Book Award-winning Laura Marlin Mysteries series. Introducing pet-sitter and amateur detective, Kat Wolfe, in her first exciting adventure! Kat Wolfe loves her new home in idyllic Bluebell Bay, especially as it comes with a resident wildcat. But when she starts pet-sitting for pocket money, she finds that beneath the town's perfect surface lie some dark and dangerous secrets . . . After a pet owner vanishes from his clifftop mansion, Kat turns to her new friend, Harper Lamb, for help. What began as mystery-solving holiday fun quickly turns deadly for Wolfe and Lamb. Can they count on their unruly animals to save their lives?


I really liked it but I thought that the heart attack gun was quite scary.

This story is based on a girl whose name is Katarina Wolfe (Kat). Her mother is a vet. But one day Kat's mom takes a new job as a vet in Bluebell Bay. kat is overjoyed as their cottage comes with a wildcat who keeps roaming everywhere. When Kat takes up a small job as a pet sitter she helps all the pet owners too. But then the story changes, Bluebell Bay is noted as the most safest town in UK. It turns out this year it will not be the safest. deep in the town there is a hidden secret... Do you think Kat and Harper(Kats's friend)can save the town of Bluebell Bay? I loved this book so much and it is a must read. The main characters in the story are- Kat, Harper, Tiny(Kat's savannah wildcat),Ramon Corazon (Bailey's owner), Edith (Toby's owner),Dr Ellen Wolfe(Kat's mom), Lord Hamilton-Crosse (Kat's grandfather) Charming Outlaw(Harper's horse), Bailey (Ramon's pet), Hero (a stray cat), Eva 9a monkey), Sergeant Singh and Reg(Edith's son) It is a book full of mysteries. Each answer leads to another question. This book is very intriguing and I also think it is very thrilling. It is a little hard to keep every thing in mind but I think it is the best mystery book i have ever read. I would love to recommend this book to all the mystery fans, adventure fans and even the cat lovers.

Kat Wolfe was just 12 and she started pet sitting. The story is wonderfully expressed. I like Kat Wolfe the most. It interested me about the Ramon's house. Sure, I would recommend it.

This book was a real rollercoaster. At points, my heart was pounding and I was sitting on the edge of my chair, my brain twisted or I was laughing my head off! At times, I also was so intrigued, I just couldn't put the book down.

Kat Wolfe Investigates was a thrilling book that kept me on the edge of my seat! I felt exactly how Kat felt during her investigation: frustrated, excited, confused. It's about a girl (Kat) who lives with her mum who is a vet. Kat adores animals, but isn't able to have a pet of her own, because the flat that she lives in won't allow it. When her mum looks for a new job in the beautiful Jurassic Coast, she is thrilled when they get there. She even has her own pet wildcat! But when things start getting mysterious, Kat sets up a detective agency, Lamb and Wolfe Inc., with her new friend Harper. My favourite character is Kat, because she is just like me; she loves animals and solving mysteries. I would recommend this book to people who love animals, solving mysteries and the seaside. i would rate this book 4 and a half stars!

Lauren St John is a very good author and this book shows that. Kat (the main character) has just moved to the Jurassic Coast. She is a vet's daughter and she loves animals. She makes a friend, Harper, and they solve a mystery together.

I thought Kat Wolfe Investigates was a very good book indeed. I found it had to put the book down at times. It's a story about Kat Wolfe and her friend Harper Lamb. Kat moves to Bluebell Bay, in Dorset. There her mother, Dr Ellen Wolfe, is in charge of the animal clinic and Kat wants to buy a laptop so she decided to earn pocket money by being a pet-sitter. When she pet-sits Harper's horse while Harper is ill, she tries to get along with the cat that comes with her new house, Tiny. Tiny is a giant Savannah F1, a big leopard like cat. At first Tiny seems to dislike Kat alot but bit by bit he starts to get used to her presence. So Kat, Harper and Tiny go on a big adventure... I would recommend this book to animal lovers and people who like mysteries.
