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..Show More » 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.

I had to increase the speed in order to hold my interest in the story. The previous reviewer who said she loved the story and gave it a 5 star rating mentioned the photographer as being Missy. Missy was actually the dog who ate the meat that was thrown under the table and went for walks in town with her owner. :-)
