A very good read. After you read the first chapter the premise is totally believable. It's a hard book to put down. The violence is all past tense, it's hard to investigate a homicide without a victim. No need to even like cats to enjoy it.
I love finding a new author to read and with Cats on the Prowl Nancy C. Davis has gained a fan in me. I always enjoy reading a good cozy mystery and when animals are included it's always an added bonus for me. With this mystery we meet Nat and Willow. Willow is a beautiful stray kitty who has come to live with Nat at the police station. Nat is a seasoned police cat which means he knows how to solve crimes, and he has decided to teach Willow the ropes. Soon these two crime solving kitties and trying to solve the latest murder which happens to be the local baker.The author weaves such an interesting who dun it that once I started reading I couldn't put the story down. Sure we are seeing the crime be solved through the eyes of cats, but honestly once I got into the story that actually became something that I quite enjoyed. Bits of humor, descriptions that easily allowed me to envision the characters, human and feline, along with an interesting mystery made this a page turning read. I will say that I found a few editing errors but that didn't detract from the overall story. I certainly will be watching for the next installment of A Cat Detective cozy mystery series.
I bought this book because I have a strong fondness for furry feline friends, and was drawn to the idea of police cats doing their own investigative work. The lead characters, Willow and Nat, are typical cats, lounging around all day pretending they're not paying any attention to their humans when in actuality they're very much aware. There are peripheral cats, like alley cats Bella and Chester who add additional interest and provide Nat and Willow with additional information. I have a tom very much like Chester, not a Persian, but definitely not a cat who minds getting his paws dirty. This story is what I would call "light reading". It chucks along at a steady pace as the cats listen in on interrogations and begin to piece together the facts in their own minds. If you're a cat fancier, you'll enjoy this book. For myself, I'm looking forward to another installment.
The story focused on Nat, the detective cat and Willow the rookie. It wasn't cluttered by tripping over humans jumping back to cats. I did have to reset my Kindle language setting to Mews, Yowls and Hissing to convert to cat talk first. Lol. Being a keen observer of stray cats and owning an un local Siamese Ms. Davis excelled at uniting the very different lifestyles of indoor and outdoor cats teaching Willow leaps of information. Bella adorable. Chester atypical old Tom with human traits. A different perspective though the cat characters reminding me of humans I know. Great detective work in casing for morsels of clues to solving the dumb-sters who committed the crimes.
Cats are so clever on their own. But this book makes them like human. It was funny and a great cozy to read .on a cold a snowy day. This book really was good I can't wait to read the authors other books about cats. I love cats and always wondered what they think. I rescue senior cats and dogs. This book was right up my alley. Lol
I like this because the cats are the main characters and they talk. But, like the Vanessa Abbot series by the same author it is a bit childish. Will continue to read them and support the author though because they are fun reads.
I've read the three books in the Cats on the prowl series and i enjoyed them all! i am a long time cat lover and i have no doubt they actually speak to each other, perhaps through telepathy. i know they can scheme and commit offences, so solving crimes should be easy. i think you too will want to welcome these felines into your home.
This was really a easy story. I would do well as a children's book in my opinion. Although it was really a cute story. The cat's do all the talking.If you're looking for a cute, quick read, and you like cats, this book is for you.
