As you might expect from this author these are delightful stories. The narration is quite good. Like many people, I read the stories as a relaxing activity at the end of a long and busy day. These stories will certainly not disappoint if this is your goal.
I hesitated to purchase this title on audible because of the cost. Audible is charging the same price for this book as it did for many of its unabridged longer books in the series. I was fortunate enough to observe this title on sale which made the cost a bit more reasonable. For those who have the choice of reading a book in print I believe you can pick up this title much cheaper in a print source. Even though waiting for this title to go on sale meant I had to postpone reading it from its release, I think the value was much greater by waiting. I know that there is cost involved in producing an audiobook and that licensure requirements mean that and audio copy of the book is not the same as a print or electronic copy of it. However, paying the same price for an audiobook the last 2 to 3 hours as you do for one that lasts 7 to 9 hours just seems unreasonable.
Two of Sofie Kelly/Sofie Ryan's short stories with her wonderful cat heroes give one a small glimpse into the world of cat detectives with attitude and humour. Read by two ladies with voices that are alive and draw one into the story.
