    From the author of the classic mysteries starring the irrepressible CIA spy, Mrs. Pollifax, comes a delightfully different mystery with a most unholy twist. Filled with all the hilarious surprises and good old-fashioned suspense that her fans have come to love, A Nun in the Closet is the story of two high-spirited nuns who accidentally stumble into a dangerous plot involving ghosts, gangsters, and Protestants.

    Would you try another book from Dorothy Gilman and/or Roslyn Alexander?

    I would definitely listen to another book narrated by Roslyn Alexander. Not sure about Dorothy Gilman. I have mixed feelings about her.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I found that the characters were more characterizations than real. The 60's radicals, the gangsters and even the nuns seemed to fit into the mold. In the beginning it was amusing, but by the end it seemed tedious and predictable.


    What about Roslyn Alexander???s performance did you like?

    Her ability to make each character unique. It was not difficult to identlfy who was speaking.


    Was A Nun in the Closet worth the listening time?

    It must have been because I did finish it, which I don't if I don't like the story at all so I gave it 3 stars.

    Even the bright seaside village of Molena Point has been hit hard by the economic downturn. Sadly, former residents haven’t just left their homes; they’ve abandoned their pets, too. Luckily, Joe Grey’s human friends have joined together to care for the animals. But just as one problem is solved more arise. A suspicious fire leaves a twelve-year-old boy homeless when the body of his alcoholic elderly guardian is discovered in the smoldering ruins.

    "One of the best Cat Mysteries Ever"

    Would you listen to Cat Telling Tales again? Why?

    I will listen to this again for sure. I love the series and Susan Boyce did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I especially like Kit as she has a special wonder about the world around her. All the cats are wonderful characters with individual personalities.


    What about Susan Boyce???s performance did you like?

    She captures the personalities of the cats and the people so that it all becomes very believable. The focus is on the mystery, not on the fact that the cats are talking to each other and to their human friends.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read and love all the Shirley Rousseau Murphy Joe Grey books. I was disappointed with the narrator of the two previous audiobooks and only tried this one because the sample sounded so much better. (The other narrator was just not right for these books, in my opinion). I hope that they continue making these audio versions and that Ms. Boyce does the narrating. If you listened to the others and didn't want to try again, I suggest that this one is worth a credit. Great story to read and a great story to listen to.
