These mysteries are stand alones-different from her other series. I was a little concerned that the cat would "help" the human too much but he doesn't. Not a bad read but not a page turner either. Personally I thought the "who did it" information repetitive after awhile and didn't help solve the case or move the story forward.

Having a cat give a mystery solver clues was an interesting twist.

Despite what Publisher's Weekly says, I find the characters not well developed. Yes there are lots of comments and descriptions about each, but they are shallow and repetitious. And to call the plot "fast moving" is just not true.

I'm a huge fan of Carolyn Hart's Death on Demand series, so I figured that this book would draw me in and keep my attention as well as those have. WRONG. The book was in one word, BORING.

Less sugary than her "Annie Darling" mysteries (I enjoyed it more); this is more of an adult novel, less of a beach read; still a sweet story and nothing that would offend your grandmother. The cat is not overwhelming.

There were a lot of characters to keep straight as suspects and none were very developed so hard to speculate who had motive making me as confused as the heroine.

This book is a little different from other Hart books. She mentions McDonalds so often I wonder if this food chain subsidized the publication of the book. Usually Hart's descriptions of food make your mouth water, but not this time. Also, there are slight changes of style that made me wonder if this was co-written or if the publisher pushed Hart to adapt her style to be a bit rougher - more sentence fragments too quicken the pace, like a Lee Child book, and some graphic bits describing romantic interests and interaction. Still, the book was interesting, and enjoyable if I didn't expect a typical Carolyn Hart read.
