Publisher's Summary

When ex-Vegas showgirl and local business owner Bunny Reid starts an online dating service called Cupid’s Cat’s Meow, out-of-town visitors flock to her bowling alley for the speed dating and cat show events that she hosts to bring in extra cash. Bunny’s scheme sounds harmless enough, but school psychologist Skye Denison knows all too well that an influx of strangers in Scumble River always spells trouble….
Meanwhile, Skye is convinced that her house is haunted and is afraid her fiancé, police chief Wally Boyd, won’t move in until the ghost moves out.
But ghost-hunting takes a back seat when Skye is called to the bowling alley, where a riled up contestant is choking a cat show judge for insulting his feline. Skye breaks up the scuffle, but the next morning the judge’s dead body is found, strangled with a cat toy. Now Skye must solve this purrplexing mystery—and show a devious killer that her sleuthing skills are the cat’s meow.

A little light on the murder mystery this time

What made the experience of listening to Murder of the Cat's Meow the most enjoyable?

This was another good Scumble River tale.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I always enjoy the interplay between the mystery and the main character in this series. This book falls a little short of the normal balance between the two. The story was a little heavy on the personal life of Skye and too light on the mystery.

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

I love listening to this series. Ms. Leto has a great voice and does a great job in her performance. After listening to many, many hours of audio books, I love listening to a book in which the narrorator's performance and the content spur my imagination into being able to picture each character. At the same time, they should never detract or distract from the story. Ms. Leto does this well.
