This is a good cozy mystery for listening to something fun in the background while you're doing something else. It's cute, it doesn't require a lot of..Show More » concentration, and it doesn't move quickly. That said, I have really enjoyed Leann Sweeney's cozy mysteries, and this was no exception.
For those who enjoy cat-centered mysteries, this involves a lot of cats, but be aware that they don't necessarily take center stage. The cat doesn't voice the mystery, but there are several felines involved throughout the book.
I listened to it on and off over the course of about a couple of weeks around bedtime to wind down. It was perfect for that, and I particularly enjoyed Vanessa Johansson's narration. Her voice is soothing and has enough cadence to it to keep the listener interested, but it's never jarring.
For those who enjoy nonstop action, look elsewhere. This is not a military thriller and something doesn't happen every second, so if you're looking for heart-pounding excitement, this is not the book for you.
For anyone who wants to wind down their day with a cute story with graceful, soothing narration or for anyone who wants something relaxing playing in the background while they clean up a room, this book is purr-fect.
