"Spoiler alert: The kitten doesn't kill anyone. Fanciers of chatty cat mysteries will be happy to know that all the animals survive in fine fettle."
Another suspicious death in Beauville, Massachusetts, leaves animal empath Pru Marlowe (Panthers Play for Keeps, 2014, etc.) babysitting a new kitten as she stumbles around trying to figure out who's settling old scores.Read full book review >
"The fourth in Simon's series (Parrots Prove Deadly, 2013, etc.) is not a bad mystery, but the constant animal chatter and Pru's often unbelievable behavior may appeal to only the staunchest animal lovers."
"Although her protagonist is mildly less pretentious than she was last time around (Grey Matters, 2010, etc.), Simon's fans shouldn't expect many departures from a formula with which she clearly feels comfortable."
"Simon's feline mysteries (True Grey, 2012, etc.), best read in the order in which they were written, show Dulcie's growing obsession with the fragments of a mysterious novel—a novel that presents a better mystery than her latest case."
"If Simon (Grey Matters, 2010, etc.) is more cute and cloying than usual, the plot compensates with more intrigue. Readers who can stomach the constant animal chatter will be rewarded with a story with some surprisingly creative twists."
