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.

Good, but not her best story.

This latest installment of the continuing saga of Skye and Scumble River is a good listen, but definitely not her best work.

The plot was rather off-the-wall but then, it's organizing character, Bunny, is a rather off-the-wall character so it works. I had a hard time believing the villain was as blatantly irksome as she is portrayed. It just didn't ring true to me.

The narrator, as usual, was great! Great voices and the sardonic humor of Ms. Swanson was appropriate.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. But, I've enjoyed the other Swanson books a bit more. It did not put me off the series and I'll listen to her next installment. I'm not sure it was worth an entire credit though.... but, if it were on a 4.95 sale, yes.
