Publisher's Summary

Back in her hometown, Nora reconnects with old friends and makes some new ones - like Nick, the charming feline who seems determined to be her cat. But not everything about Cruz is friendly. Writing for a local online magazine, Nora investigates the curious death of socialite Lola Grainger. Though it was deemed an accident, Nora suspects foul play. And it seems that her cat does too.

Apparently, Nick used to belong to a P.I. who disappeared while investigating Lola Grainger's death. The coincidence is spooky, but not as spooky as the clues Nick spells out for her with Scrabble letters - clues that lead her down an increasingly dangerous path. Whether fate put her on this case or not, solving it will take all of Nora's wits, and maybe a few of Nick's nine lives.

Terrific Read, Lots of Fun!

A fun and relaxing read with a bit of a twist as the writer is a former big city crime reporter with a resonably sensible head on her shoulders, until she meets a certain detective, that is!

Oh and Nick the Cat is Meow Out Loud awesomely funny!!

Good cozy mystery

What did you love best about Meow If It's Murder?

Love Nick the cat. Daniel the sweet and hot FBI agent. Love the secondary mystery of missing PI.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. Good twists towards the end.

Which character – as performed by Rebecca Mitchell – was your favorite?

She was great at all characters and pacing. Easy to listen to.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. Just a nice cozy mystery to relax and crochet to.

Any additional comments?

Please keep Daniel!

Wanted to love it...

but the characters were not interesting. Narrator was the best part of this book.

The cat!

There is good potential here but the at sounds alternately like a dog, a pig, a cow, and maybe even a horse at one point. This has to change or I won't be able to listen to another book in this series.
The other problem is Chantal's accent described as French-Canadian. I don't think I've heard anything farther from any of many French-Canadian accents. Maybe a European French accent. Maybe. It adds nothing to the story and makes the character seem totally ridiculous. Just drop the whole accent thing. Please.

Great new series

Would you consider the audio edition of Meow If It's Murder to be better than the print version?

I have the Kindle version and the audio version, but I prefer audio in all instances. I don't have much time for reading, but I do a lot of traveling and so I can always fit audio books into my schedule. So I'm always glad when my favorite authors' books are available in audio.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this and hope there are many more books in the series. It is fast paced and held my interest throughout. And I'm in love with Nick. Looking forward to the next in the series - Claws for Alarm.
