Publisher's Summary

Even the bright seaside village of Molena Point has been hit hard by the economic downturn. Sadly, former residents haven’t just left their homes; they’ve abandoned their pets, too. Luckily, Joe Grey’s human friends have joined together to care for the animals. But just as one problem is solved more arise. A suspicious fire leaves a twelve-year-old boy homeless when the body of his alcoholic elderly guardian is discovered in the smoldering ruins. Then, a woman with two children appears on the Damen doorstep, claiming to have no money and nowhere else to go. The experienced Joe Grey smells a rat, and will work his paws off to prove it. Scratching out clues, he and his P.I. posse follow a trail that lead to a scam involving a group of shady real estate agents. When a realtor goes missing, Joe suspects the mysteries are connected. And just when the Damen household is filled to capacity, another stray arrives with answers… and the possibility of true love for the adventurous tortoiseshell Kit.

A delightful narrator and a good story

Would you listen to Cat Telling Tales again? Why?

I have already listened to this audio book twice! Why? It is a fun read and a delight for any Joe Grey fan. I am baffled why there are note more of this popular series on audiobook they would be my go to choice for a light, cat loving read.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The listener becomes absorbed in the lives and events of the cat characters who are all portrayed with affection and wit. The sub-story about Pan and Misto will move any cat lover and have them cheering at the end. A favourite? It would be mean to pick one out - the humans and Molena Point are a delight and the cats make me laugh and sometimes hold my breath!

What does Susan Boyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It is, sometimes, simply nice to be read to, and by a voice of Susan Boyce's quality with its gentle characterisation and relaxed manner.

Any additional comments?

PLEASE commission Susan Boyce to read the whole series - there is a huge gap in the Joe Grey lover's library that Auduble needs to fill!

Narrator, not so good

The narration is choppy making a difficult listen. However the story is quirky and fun and would have been rated much higher with a better narrator. It's good to see that future books have another narrator. Thanks
