Bush, Pamela. Josie and the Digger’s Club #2: Case of the Missing Cats (Published in 2018 by Pamela Bush). After solving the case of the Stone Mansion, the Digger’s Club members, Josie Winnell, whose father is the local sheriff, Charlie Maxwell, Lily Spencer, and Amy Stone, are plunged right into another case that involves missing cats, who are being stolen by someone in their city of Paradise, Wisconsin. The first “Missing Cat” poster, of a lost black and white cat, catches their attention. Just days later, when the third cat is reported missing, the Diggers get involved. Soon, they narrow it down to two, seemingly unlikely, suspects.
With his mind already made up, and not wanting to hear that everyone is “innocent until proven guilty,” Charlie breaks away from the other Diggers and secretly follows someone else who he believes is the real thief, namely fellow student August Bentley. Can the cats be rescued? Is Charlie right? Will the real cat-nabber be caught before someone gets seriously hurt? Not only does this story contain an intriguing mystery, but also the kids learn some important lessons and Biblical principles are encouraged. Volume 3 is Case of the Stolen Medallion.
