Publisher's Summary

For most people, dreams are a way to escape reality. But for Cat McCormick, they're a way to get closer to the truth. Cat can slip into other people's dreams. After graduating college with a degree in criminal justice but little in the way of real-life experience, Cat moves from the Midwest to Seattle to apprentice with her Granny Grace, who shares the ability. Granny uses dreamslipping as a private investigator, and Cat plans to follow in her footsteps. But forced to take work as a security guard, Cat discovers a mother and daughter on the run. Following the clues, she goes undercover in a Midwestern megachurch, where she finds redemption and goodwill amidst repression, hypocrisy, and murder.

    "Perchance to dream"

    It seems that we are seeing more and more books that merge genres. I have read several mysteries with touches of the paranormal, some of which have been enhanced by the combination, some of which haven’t. The author combines the paranormal elements with the mystery in natural and unforced ways that make this book a treat for people who like both genres.

    The author intertwines the mystery, the personal story of Cat and her family, and her romances seamlessly, with no one theme detracting from any of the others. She writes with a light touch, and can express both humor and tragedy with understanding and sensitivity. I, for one, hope to see more of this series, since the premise, and the exposition of that premise both work for me, and work very well.

    The narrator provided a fully professional performance.

    I received this book in exchange for this unbiased review via the courtesy of AudioBookBlast dot com.

    This book was a fantastic break from my normal non-fiction listens. Witty, and creative. Loved it!

    "Intriguing story, poor narration"
    What did you love best about Cat in the Flock?

    I enjoyed the story, the characters were interesting and well-developed, and the dream slipping was intriguing. The ending was totally unexpected and sad, but it was still a good ending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked Cat (the main character) and her granny was a real character! I also liked Wendy from the Plantation church.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator, Angel Clark, was okay when narrating the main character, but her accents were absolutely terrible for the other characters, especially Granny Grace. I disliked the accents so much that I bought the ebook. I did manage to stick with the audio though because I did like the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy the story well enough to pre-order the second book in the series, Framed and Burning.

    I received this audiobook free from the author via Audiobookblast.

    "Intriquing"

    I received an audio version of this book free for review. Totally enjoyable mystery about a young woman with the ability to slip into someone else's dreams. As a P.I. she is able to use the dream slipping to solve mysteries. The way the author writes in the dream slipping makes it appear to be a normal everyday occurrence. It's a good quick read and a good beginning to a long series.

    Look forward to the next in the series.

    The narration was good as long as she was reading the main character but became high and squeaky when reading the other parts.

    dreams come true

    Discovers preachers are gay lovers


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Good voice for Cat. Shrill voice for some other characters.

    If it has letters strung into words that form a story which draws me in, I won't be able to resist it. Is there a reader's anonymous?

    "Decent story, distracted by narration"

    For me this was an interesting concept for a story. What could you do if you could walk into other peoples’ dreams? Could it be a useful gift/curse to have? This book presents a plausible scenario to answer those questions. We are introduced to the main character Cat in this first in a series book, and I imagine we will get to know a bit more of the characters presented as the series progresses. While some of the scenarios were a bit too convenient (the main character just jumps on a plane to go undercover in a megachurch, seemingly without much research or prior planning), it wasn’t enough to distract me, and I actually liked the story.

    What did distract me was the narration. It was sort a mixed bag. On the one hand the voice and tone the narrator used for the characters was alright. The enunciation was clear enough. The volume was good. My problem was the pauses: There were pauses in the … middle of sentences in places ... that didn’t make sense. It made it seem like there was punctuation where there shouldn’t be and that sentences ended halfway through. Unfortunately this had the effect of jarring me out of the story, sounding awkward, and annoying me so much I started bookmarking all the places it was happening in a chapter just to confirm to myself that I wasn’t fixating on something that wasn’t actually occurring all that much. … There were a lot of bookmarks in that chapter. I still mostly enjoyed the story especially in the parts where there weren’t as many weird pauses (which is why it's 2 instead of 1 star). Just…listen to the sample not only of this book but to at least one other by this narrator to make sure you can stand it.

    "Great Characters - Gripping Story"
    What did you like most about Cat in the Flock?

    I thought this was an unusual spin on the private investigator genre. The idea of dream slipping brought a whole new dimension to the characters and situations.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the wonderfully eccentric Granny Grace. And I liked the way the characters were rounded human beings.


    Have you listened to any of Angel Clark’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard any of her other performances, but I liked her narration.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending. I cried!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was a great audiobook. I notice it's the first in a series. I'll certainly get the next one when it comes out.

    "A great new type of detective"
    Would you listen to Cat in the Flock again? Why?

    Yes, definitely, and it wont be too long before I do read it again!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cat. She has an ability to jump into the dreams of others. This could be completely disturbing or completely selfish as a skill is concerned but that's not what she takes from it. She has a sensitivity to life and those around her. She is a good person that wants to help others. The author, through Cat, treats the story with respect and humour which engages the reader and entertains throughout. Saying that Granny Grace was also nice.


    Which character – as performed by Angel Clark – was your favourite?

    I'd still say Cat. For all the same reasons. I loved the narration in general. If the reader isn't good they can spoil the book. Angel Clark does a really good job of drawing you into this generally entertaining and engaging book which has great characters and a brilliant and engaging plot.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was going to listen for an hour in my first sitting. I think it ended up being just over two hours. I was drawn into the book by the story and the narration. So yes. It is a book that you can sit and listen too and get into all in one go.


    Any additional comments?

    A brilliant book. Get it!! You will love it from start to finish. Its a new take on the detective genre in a refreshing and entertaining way.
