Editorial Reviews

Author Leann Sweeney continues her Cats in Trouble series with The Cat, the Lady, and The Liar, another mystery romp starring "cat quilter" Jillian Hart and her cat, Chablis. Distinctly cutesy, romantic, and modest, the story is filled with descriptions of gorgeous estates, timeworn mysteries, and sleuths of the feline variety. In this edition of the series, Jillian Hart must get to the bottom of a dead body floating on a lake and a mysterious rich woman named Ritaestelle Longworth.

Vanessa Johansson, who performs all of the Cats in Trouble series, uses a playful and pleasing mid-range voice complete with caricature-inflected dialogue and faux-dramatic pitch variations. While the performance is suitable for children, adults looking for a cat-heavy whodunit should surely catch this tale, too.

Publisher's Summary

Cat quilter Jillian Hart finds a gorgeous stray cat belonging to the fabulously wealthy Ritaestelle Longworth, who believes she's being drugged. Before Jillian can get to those charges, a body turns up in the lake - and her cat Chablis finds Ritaestelle nearby. Can Jillian's cats aid her in solving a mystery with decades old roots?

Good Story, Ends Strong After Slow Start

The story starts slow, and the premise that gets us into the story is kind of ludicrous. But once the story really gets going, it transforms into a pretty compelling whodunnit. I definitely enjoyed it and look forward to the other books.

Easy listening for a commute

I'm now addicted to this series. It combines two of my interests, cats and mysteries. The heroine is a perfect human being. Nice in an imperfect world.

Next book always better than the last

I listened to the first two books in the series, and the next has always been better than the last.
