There are several things I did not like about this book.
1. The main character 's quirk of misspeaking is not funny. It's annoying.
2. The corny phrases that are used by the villain.
3. The main character is not very engaging. The lead character is not very smart or interesting.
4. The character development lacking. Several characters were introduced but you never get to know them.
5. The story was choppy and did not flow well.
6. The narrator tried to add color and life to the story by using different accents, but, she only added to the meany things that made this story annoying.
The only thing I did like was the interjection of chocolate facts. I would have preferred recipes but the chocolate facts were interesting. I would not reccomend this book to anyone.

Would you listen to The Chocolate Cat Caper again? Why?
Not for a few years, I'd remember it too well.
What about Teresa DeBerry’s performance did you like?
Her wonderful southern drawl... not overdone but just very nice and she just sounds so cute.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not exactly but I did want to get back to it.
Any additional comments?
A nice mystery, clean book and not confusing with TOO many characters to keep track of like some mysteries... just enjoyed. Love easy listening and unconfusing!!
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The only thing I would change about this book is the narrator whose phrasing and intonation were completely out of synch with the text she was reading. Frankly, it spoiled my enjoyment of what was a good story.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the building of the characters and the description of the chocolates made me hungry! The whole reminded me of some of Janet Evanovich's books - and this is a compliment because I am a huge fan of hers!
How could the performance have been better?
Change the narrator! This book would have been so much more enjoyable if read by Lorelei King, for example, who delivers dialog exactly as it should be, with the emphasis and intonation in all the right places.
Do you think The Chocolate Cat Caper needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I have all the Chocolate series on my Audible "wishlist", but I am really not inclined to buy the audio book versions until the narrator is changed. I would rather buy the physical or electronic version so I can concentrate more on enjoying the story and less on the discomfort of the delivery.
