Veteran performer Vanessa Johansson brings warmth and compassion to this story of friendship, intrigue, and adorable kitty capers. Johansson's experience voicing animated characters plays well with the quirky, light-hearted good humor of Sweeney's self-described "gentle mystery".

- Linda Louise "RETIRED & LOVING IT."

Quit -- couldn't stand the narrator.

Odd book. I genuinely enjoyed most of the first half of this book -- good story, interesting characters. Even from the beginning, the narrator sounded too young to me, for a protagonist who was supposed to be a widow with a 29 year old stepdaughter, but I was willing to go with it. For awhile.

But about half way through, something happened. The narrator spun out of control. She began reading in a very clipped and emphatic way, emphasizing odd words here and there, making it a sing-song chronicle, and I started getting sea sick. I couldn't follow the story anymore -- all I could do was hang on this odd cadence the narrator was setting up. Her voice would go up.... then down... and all I could do was wait to hear what next odd word she'd emphasize.

The story got a little out of control too, I think. It seems to suddenly explode with new characters, more complicated situations, way too complex for what had started out to be a nice little tale... but I admit I'm not at all sure about that. I backtracked two hours, three different times, trying to stick with the story, but finally gave up.

Now I'm disgusted because I also bought another book by this author, and now I see that Miss Johansson narrates this one too. Hate it when that happens...
