Publisher's Summary

The world ends not with a bang but a hiss.

Since the Rise of Magic, soothsayer Journi McCutcheon has faced supernatural sycophants, dated zealous zombies, and battled possessed pediatricians, but when an eccentric client hires her to investigate haunted pickles, her day goes from weird to worse. 

Only demonic dills are the least of her newly acquired problems. 

What begins as a nuisance call ends in apocalypse when she stumbles across a mass grave and discovers that the cats therein aren't just dead--they're harbingers of extinction. 

And magic is on the endangered species list. 

To save her family and Deviants everywhere, she must set aside her feud with all things feline to end the threat. 

Before it ends her. 

Cat Me If You Can is the exciting prequel to Crazy Cat Lady, Gemma Thorne's number-one best-selling debut novel. Packed with quick wit, spell-slinging heroines, and cats, it's a new breed of urban fantasy.

A Fabulous Listen

As the prequel to The Hissing Booth Chronicles, this gives us a pretty good idea of who Journi is as a character. We also get a chance to experience an abundance of wit and charm in addition to excellent descriptions. Literally busting out laughing in the first 10 minutes or so and at other times throughout. Journi's sleuthing had my attention the entire time. A very well written fabulous paranormal mystery!

The narrator does an excellent job bringing these characters to life and making this story amazing. The narrator fits this series and makes the story even more captivating.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

magical thrill-ride quickie!

Did you listen to CRAZY CAT LADY? (If not, do yourself a solid.) That romp left me wanting more, and here it is: a prequel novella that introduces us to Journi, our indomitable and wisecracking goth (or goth-adjacent) soothsayer heroine making her way in a world full of magic since the Rise brought out magical talents, and beings, in eye-popping numbers and variety in her hometown of Columbus. Here, Journi's battling "Middling" (non-magical human) supremacists in a plot line that's hair-raisingly timely, redolent of our Charlottesville-tainted world but without direct political discourse. This is funny and hair-raising, sharp and scary (but not terribly so) — pretty much a PG-13 experience.

The delicious LYNN NORRIS reprises her narrator role in this series with unerring instincts for character and plot development, and razor-sharp comedic timing and inflection that always deliver and satisfy.

Get rrrrready to rrrrumble! (And giggle, and snort, and gasp). Enjoy!

What a unique, funny and wonderful story!

A haunted pickle jar had my attention from the beginning. With a kick-butt heroine.
The author has a wonderful talent of creating a story that draws you in and keeps you hanging on to the very end. I found the story to be very entertaining and fun! I definitely recommend this book. I couldn’t stop listening to this book.
The narrator did an excellent job of distinguishing between the characters and I enjoyed listening to the book.

Haunted Pickle!!!

Any book that starts with a haunted pickle just has to be great and this one definitely is. The author and narrator both do their individual jobs with perfection. I highly recommend this quirky tale!
