From the very beginning, this book was a winner to me. I read the first one, The Cats That Surfed the Web, and 'got right into' this one. Finished it over the week-end and am really looking forward to the 3rd one this year. Katz is a great lead character, and any cat lover will love this one.
Writing a bit stilted at times, mystery absolutely secondary to cat antics, and not terribly riveting -- good thing I like cats, something I think a lot of mystery writers count on. I borrowed the first one on Prime, paid $1.99 for the second, don't think it's worth more than that.
Good for any cat owner or cat lover. Somewhat predictable. It also puts you in mind of another murder mystery series about a young heiress who relocates to Iowa. But fun and funny. The cat antics are great!
This writer's "Cat story" is even better than the previous "Cat That Surfed the Web". It is fun, has two plots going on atthe same time, with clever cats right in the middle of all the action. I liked that the story included characters, from theprevious book. The ending is a hoot !! I will be watching for a sequel later.
While I was reading the book I kept checking the % read to see when I would strike the plot. It was at 82% when I finally realized what the point of the book was. There was no cohesiveness to the book and it was distracting.
I love cats and am always looking for good cat stories. I found the writing style simplistic and the extensive dialog was boring and basic and put the book down to move onto another book.
The descriptions of what the cats are like kept me laughing as well as tearing up in remembering the cute and frustrating things my cats have done over the years. The story was wonderful, fast paced, full of unusual happenings and with enough interesting characters to keep anyone guessing. I am looking forward to finding out more about Mark. There was just enough about his history to really make me want to know more. I have read both books and can't wait for the next.
This is an instance of a book being TOO cozy. The writing is technically adequate, but stylistically leaves much to be desired. So much possibility with character development and situation descriptions was simply not fulfilled. The story had much to offer but in most cases, the author did not provide much depth. I had the first two on my Kindle and erred in reading #2 first - it obviously continued the story begun in #1. Will read the first just to see if it has more to it than this one. The involvement of the cats in the plot is OK but I really would have liked to have learned more of the people and places.
