Publisher's Summary

Maddie James has arrived in Daybreak Island, just off the coast of Massachusetts, eager to settle down and start her own business - and maybe even fall in love. When a stray orange tabby pounces into her life, she's inspired to open a cat cafe. But little does Maddie know that she's in for something a lot more catastrophic when her new furry companion finds the dead body of the town bully.

Now all eyes are on Maddie: Who is this crazy cat-whisperer lady who's come to town? If pet-hair-maintenance and crime-fighting weren't keeping her busy enough, Maddie now has not one but two eligible bachelors who think she's the cat's pajamas...and will do anything to win her heart. But how can she even think about happily-ever-after while a killer remains on the loose - and on her path?

For once, I prefer to listen to the voices in my head

I purchased this audio book several months ago. I never made it past the 3rd chapter; unless a book captures my interest within the first couple chapters, I rarely continue. Then, yesterday, I was reviewing Kindle's Recommended books and this book was on my list. I thought the plot sounded interesting and the cat on the cover convinced me to give it a try. I downloaded the book, totally forgetting I had already purchased the Audible version. It wasn't until I opened the book and it prompted me about switching to immersion reading that I realized the book already occupied space in my Audible library.

To my delight, I loved *reading* the book, it was the audio version I don't care for, however. The narrator isn't bad, in fact, she's probably good, but her voice failed to captivate me. Initially I thought it was the story that didn't appeal to me, but since reading the book on Kindle, I realized the narrator's interpretive delivery of the story just didnt match my interpretation, especially of the characters, in my head.

Great READ!

Unoriginal

This is an unoriginal and boring mystery. The characters were well developed but their actions seemed unrealistic. The plot seemed to be checking off all of the typical qualities of cozy mysteries. I forced myself to listen to the book for a three hour drive. When I got to my destination, I deleted the book.

Pretty good story for the first in a new series

Cate Conte crafted a pretty good story for the first in a new series. The characters were likable. Amy Melissa Bentley gave a good performance bringing it all to life. I’ll be looking for the next installment and hoping for more fun.

Meh

This is a formulaic cozy mystery. The characters are flat but the plot is ok. However , I didn't relate to the characters. I might get the next one to see if it improves.

Great fun and not just because of Leopard Man

The story was really good with really great, believable characters. Can't wait for the sequel.

I love that a cat was a main character

But it’s story itself that kept me listening!! Can’t wait to listen to book 2 in this series!

I enjoyed the story and characters!

Great story line, although I had a suspicion on the actual killer it wasn't until the end that it made sense. I really enjoyed it!!!
