Publisher's Summary

Back in her hometown, Nora reconnects with old friends and makes some new ones - like Nick, the charming feline who seems determined to be her cat. But not everything about Cruz is friendly. Writing for a local online magazine, Nora investigates the curious death of socialite Lola Grainger. Though it was deemed an accident, Nora suspects foul play. And it seems that her cat does too.

Apparently, Nick used to belong to a P.I. who disappeared while investigating Lola Grainger's death. The coincidence is spooky, but not as spooky as the clues Nick spells out for her with Scrabble letters - clues that lead her down an increasingly dangerous path. Whether fate put her on this case or not, solving it will take all of Nora's wits, and maybe a few of Nick's nine lives.

    "Terrific Read, Lots of Fun!"

    A fun and relaxing read with a bit of a twist as the writer is a former big city crime reporter with a resonably sensible head on her shoulders, until she meets a certain detective, that is!

    Oh and Nick the Cat is Meow Out Loud awesomely funny!!

    "Mediocre at best"
    What did you like best about Meow If It's Murder? What did you like least?

    The "Nick & Nora" idea is appealing, and the idea of leaving a rat-race job to return to your roots is OK. But the whole Mafia/witness protection concept is too "out there" for me. A former crime reporter moves back to her small town which just happens to contain not one, but two protected mafia informants and assorted Mafia bad guys - too much to believe.


    Would you recommend Meow If It's Murder to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. There are many other books out there that are much better that I would recommend.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could have been smoother. The narration seemed stilted at times, with awkward pauses. The only reason I didn't rate the narrator lower is that she did a good job of making a different voice for each character.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If the next book in the series was available free at my local library, I might listen to it or read it. But I wouldn't pay for any more.

    "Wanted to love it..."

    but the characters were not interesting. Narrator was the best part of this book.

    "The cat!"

    There is good potential here but the at sounds alternately like a dog, a pig, a cow, and maybe even a horse at one point. This has to change or I won't be able to listen to another book in this series.
    The other problem is Chantal's accent described as French-Canadian. I don't think I've heard anything farther from any of many French-Canadian accents. Maybe a European French accent. Maybe. It adds nothing to the story and makes the character seem totally ridiculous. Just drop the whole accent thing. Please.

    "Great new series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Meow If It's Murder to be better than the print version?

    I have the Kindle version and the audio version, but I prefer audio in all instances. I don't have much time for reading, but I do a lot of traveling and so I can always fit audio books into my schedule. So I'm always glad when my favorite authors' books are available in audio.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this and hope there are many more books in the series. It is fast paced and held my interest throughout. And I'm in love with Nick. Looking forward to the next in the series - Claws for Alarm.

    "The narrator needs practice."
    What disappointed you about Meow If It's Murder?

    The narrator is very flat. With little to no inflection it sounds as if the words are going in the eyes and out the mouth but the narrator could not tell you what they had read. The story concept was good but I couldn't get past the narration.
