Publisher's Summary

A cat with a distaste for a certain cologne.

A pet shop owner seeking justice.

A billionaire dead.

Trinity Ashford owns the Tail Waggin’ Pet Day Care and store. Every morning, the kindly Mr. Armstrong brings her coffee. At least until his handsome son, Brad, shows up wanting to change everything. Then, Trinity finds the elderly Mr. Armstrong murdered and is determined to prove his son is the killer by using the old man’s cat, Moses, as a witness.

The cat hates the scent of the cologne Brad wears. Trinity is convinced it’s the same brand the killer must have worn in order for the cat to react as he did. No one believes her, but she is determined to prove the cat is a viable witness.

As she seeks to prove Brad the murderer, she realizes he is far from a killer, and the two of them end of teaming together to find out the identity of the real killer. From small-town strips malls to penthouses, and country clubs, they check off suspects one by one until they get too close and find themselves facing death.

Trashcan and Shark Bait

I was having fun as soon as I heard those cat names. This was an enjoyable cozy mystery that I would recommend. An engaging story and likeable characters. Narrator really grew on me by the end too.

Cats Never Forget

Cat-Eyed Witness is Book 1 in A Tail Waggin Mystery by Cynthia Hickey. I thought that Cat-Eyed Witness was outstanding. I loved the characters and Moses the cat and his tail waggin friends are so much fun! I believe that Cynthia Hickey did a fantastic job of laying the foundation for the series while writing a solid mystery. When Mr Armstrong was murdered, his friend, Heather, along with Brad Armstrong, worked to find out who the murderer was. I think that this should be an outstanding series. Anna Wheeler brought the story to life and truthfully, I was sad to see the ending come...guess I will just have to listen to Book 2, The Dog Found a Body, for more furry fun.

Fun entertaining book

Cat-Eyed Witness is the first in the Tail Waggin’ Mystery series by Cynthia Hickey. I enjoyed this cozy book very much. The characters are believable and sometimes quirky. The plot is good with some twists. The narration by Anna Wheeler is very good. Her performance gives each character a unique voice and brings the characters to life. I’ve also read the 2nd in the series and will read the others. I recommend this book and the series!

Cat Eyed Witness

This was a fun and enjoyable cozy mystery! The characters were enjoyable. Trinity’s humorous take on everything was so fun. She gets herself involved in different laugh out loud moments, especially when her new employee gets involved. She is determined to find out who killed Mr. Armstrong. And she is determined to get his cat involved in the investigation. I felt that the narration of the audiobook was really good.

Does Trinity keep her shop?

This is the first book by this author that I have read or listened to. I enjoyed the story but thought the narrator just wasn’t right for this book. The narrator’s voice is too soft and gentle. I picture Trinity as a reluctant but strong individual.

I found the story to be well-plotted with plenty of twists. I cannot wait for the next installment even though I’ll probably read it instead.

A big disappointment

I don't know who chooses the narrators, but it was a wrong choice here. This is horrible. I can't even listen to it. A total waste of money. It may be a good book to read, but this is awful.

A perrfect mystery

This is the first book by this author that I have read or listened to but I love animals and thought a pet shop/doggy day care center would make the perfect setting for a cozy mystery. I was right and I enjoyed the book. The unusual pet names made me laugh, not sure I will be getting pet name ideas from this book but I really liked the pet angle to the story as it made a change from the usual cafes cozy mysteries tend to focus around. The mystery was made fun by the characters and the trouble they got themselves into while investigating. I especially liked the fact that the cat was the only witnesses to the murder and Trinity kept trying to solve the case with the cats help. The small tight-knit community added to the story and I liked how Trinity and Brad were at odds with each other to begin with. I will be looking out for the next book in the series.
Trinity's life revolves around her saving up money to go to veterinarian school, running her doggy day care center and cuddling up to her two cats with a good book. Oh and her morning coffee delivered by her elderly landlord. So the last thing she wants to be told is her rent is going up with no coffee in her hand. Trinity decides to check on her landlord and friend only to find him dead. Before the police arrive, his estranged son Brad let's himself into the apartment. The landlords cat, Mosses, goes nuts when he gets near and Trinity believes the usual friendly cat would only do that it be smelled the killer. Could Brad be the killer? Trinity doesn't know what to think as he is the one pushing for the rent to be raised for all the small shop owners. Can Brad prove he isn't the killer? He does prove that he is willing to listen and things take a turn for the better until she starts to get threatening notes, Trinity's social life also improves but that is only so that she can find the real killer and with Brad and Mosses help she might just catch a killer and save her shop.
I like the narrator. She has a distinct voice that she uses well for recreating the story.
