Fun, Southern Comfort Cozy

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 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.

The humor.

What did you like best about this story?

It moved along at a good pace and did not introduce too many characters where you might get confused.

What does Karen Commins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought her tone really emphasized the tone/emotions being felt and the humor of the story.

Loved the book

This was a really cute story after the murder business. It's funny how the cousins kept stealing Grandma's brooch. I really enjoy this narrators work. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Wish they kept the same narrator thru every book

I really enjoy this series and love the characters and stories and how they intermix. But the one thing that was very hard for me to get past was the narrators voice in this one. I just wish they would've kept the same narrator for Caro that they had in book one. It was very difficult to get past for me as I had incorporated a certain voice to the characters and then had to try to get use to a whole new one for all them in this book.. That is really my only complaint. Once I finally adjusted to the new narrator the story was still very funny and enjoyable. I'm about to start book 4 in the series and hope it's just as good as all the others were!

Everybody is an art critic

I enjoyed this fun quirky mystery. A murder mystery and animals what more could you want? The characters are fun and I love the long running fight over the brooch, each book is set around one of two cousins as they each solve a mystery.This does mean each book is a stand alone story and the cases get solved, the only exception is to who has the brooch at the end of the book. As the cover shows it is a humorous story and a lot of fun. The mystery is good and has a number of suspects. All in all a fun series. Caro is attending an art gallery with a differences, all the works of art are painted by cats. The owner of the cats is Carl's neighbour kitty and when she has to leave early she asks Caro to take the two stars of the show home. On the way home she is shocked to come across a car accident and even more to find out her neighbour died in the crash. When kitty's newly found sister April May turns up the pair start to investigate. Well April May does, Caro just tags along to keep her safe, honest. I liked the voices the narrator gave the characters all except April May she was a bit squeaky for my liking.
