Caro Lamont pet therapist has the misfortune to not only have to take care of her neighbors Bengal cats, but deal with a long lost sister that arrives unexpectedly at her door. Caro is at first sorry to tell May that her sister is dead, and but wants to avoid dealing with her at all costs. May is pesty and very needy and and naive and soon wears Caro down to where she feels sorry for her.
No matter what Caro tells herself about not getting involved once it's revealed her neighbor didn't have just a car accident but was murdered, everything conspires to get her deeply involved. The story is fun, has lots of laughs, and moves at a good pace.
The only thing I didn't like was the title and I had a little bit of a problem wrapping my mind around Bengal cats that paint.
Karen Commins does a stellar narration and her accents and personality expressions are right on target. She does the high pitched nasally voiced May so well that you sympathize with Caro about trying to avoid the harpy. Wonderful narration.
It moved along at a good pace and did not introduce too many characters where you might get confused.
I thought her tone really emphasized the tone/emotions being felt and the humor of the story.
I am a wee bit over the half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lo
This is a short,fun book.I loved it!
April Mays new hairdo.
Karen Commins is a great narrator.Her voices for all of them are great!I did prefer Kitty to anyone elses voice,though.
When April May found out her sister was dead was very sad.I can imagine that actually happening.
I really enjoyed this book.It was a fun and fast listen.Karen Commins is a great narrator.She did a fine job with all the voices.The story line of a friend being murdered seems to be a common one,but this story is fresh and fun.
I really enjoy this series and love the characters and stories and how they intermix. But the one thing that was very hard for me to get past was the narrators voice in this one. I just wish they would've kept the same narrator for Caro that they had in book one. It was very difficult to get past for me as I had incorporated a certain voice to the characters and then had to try to get use to a whole new one for all them in this book.. That is really my only complaint. Once I finally adjusted to the new narrator the story was still very funny and enjoyable. I'm about to start book 4 in the series and hope it's just as good as all the others were!
I LOVE this series! Cannot think of enough superlatives to do these books justice and am eagerly awaiting more - more - MORE!!!
