    "Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter"

    The author kept weaving in a political agenda that was neither seemless nor essential to the narrative. It was awkward and distracting. I finally gave up on this one.

    "I learned so many things about MY cat"

    Not only did I get a great mystery in this book - it also gave me a few tricks that my cat my cat enjoyed.

    The characters in this book were fun, the story line interested me to the end and though I saw some parts of the ending coming - many I didn't.

    What a fun read!!!

    "Great read!"

    I wasent sure about this book, not my normal cozy mystery. But it's a really nice change. I thought I was into the series more then book one, because she wasent talking about her past. But it is. That was nice too though, normally a lot of time is wasted on the story of there past and how they got to where they our now. I like it!
    The narrator is very good to, that can be very important in an audio book.

    "Only one flaw"
    Where does Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a good listen save for the horrific editing. Unbelievably poor and distracting.


    What didn’t you like about Julia Gibson’s performance?

    Although she handles the material quite well, if she had any say in the audio production she should at least listen to the finished production and voice object to poor qualitiy.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can forgive too long pauses and run-on chapter sequences the material is worth it. Maybe, if it is possible, ebook form may be less annoying.

    "Did Not Finish"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    My wife and I got to the 7th Track of Disk 1 and stopped. We even restated at Track 7 the next night but realized we had enough. The writer makes it quite clear that she does not write for an audience that have any type of conservative pro-American view points.


    What could Blaize Clement have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I think she should not have showed her animosity to American Workers at such a time when there are so few "good" paying jobs. Apparently, she never had to really work in the Real World!

    "Refreshing Read"
    What did you love best about Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter?

    The book is very interesting, with a refreshing cast of characters and a modern leading character who has real-life concerns, foibles, and family. Left me wanting more of the same!


    What other book might you compare Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter to and why?

    Except for the 90-year difference in settings, the book reminded me very much of the Maisie Dobbs series.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope more books by this author are recorded!

    Me? ....... Capable of many moods, and enjoying a vast range of literature. Incapable of uploading a picture and realized none of the Avatars are ......appropriate. That pretty much "tells" it all.

    "MY 'CUROSITY' JUST GETTING STARTED! GREAT BOOK!"

    This is my first Dixie Hemingway Mystery but it will not be my last! Since I live in Sarasota where the action takes place I felt right at home in the middle of all the scenes. Julia Gibson gave a great performance. Was a good mystery, written with good comical plot yet touches a lot of serious emotional avenues to cruise down with a great twist at the end. Loved Dixie's relationship with her animal characters and her devotion to seeing that they were well taken care of. All the characters were nicely fleshed out. I highly recommend this book and will let you know what I think of the next one. I have high hopes for this author. You go Blaize Clement!

    "Nice cozy mystery for animal lovers"
    Where does Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Although the mystery was a little predictable the story was good and the it was an easy enjoyable read. Especially enjoyed the way the animals were worked into the development of the story and the discussions of the animals.


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

    Not in one sitting as I listen to books during my 1.5 hr/day commute. However, as I neared the end, the book was interesting enough, I chose to continue listening once I reached home to find out the resolution of the mystery.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was good on the main character and most of the women but I felt her men were somewhat lacking. While this was mildly annoying, it didn't detract from the story.

    I loved how this mystery took place in Sarasota, Florida. This is a fast paced easy to follow mystery. Kept me guessing until the end.

    If you could sum up Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing story of a ex-officer turned animal caretaker


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first opportunity to read her. Now I'm a fan.
