    Scrib book and audio. I've almost DNF this! The principal characters have no complexity, are schematic, commonplace, uninteresting, unremarkable, uninspired, and forgettable. Well, and the plot is shallow, clichéd, predictable, and oversimplified. Sorry for so many adjectives! But as always, I learned some new words to improve my English vocabulary.

    A light reading cozy mystery. It was well written and no glaring editor problems. There is no sex and very little violence. It was a pleasure to find the protagonist did not put herself in danger. The characters are not well developed and the story is simple. Matilda, her neighbor cat leads Kat Harper finds her human dead in a bathroom. Matilda also shows Kat the clue that leads to the answer. There a number interesting way for the tale to develop into a fascinating story. I recommend this book A light reading cozy mystery. It was well written and no glaring editor problems.

This was a fun, light cozy that I enjoyed very much. A fast read too. I will be returning to Cherry Hills soon to visit with Kat and Matilda again.

    Very short entertaining cozy. Clean, pleasant Dr. Office-bedside, fireside, or beach read. Lively plot and likable characters. Recommended but not if you want heavy reading.

    First off, this is a novella, not a novel. It was only 64 pages, followed by almost 20 more in ads, bios, and the prequel to the next book. But, all aside, it was a cute read. The writing modern and upbeat. There wasn't much character development, people appeared with a small backstory and were mostly static for the story. The arc of the plot didn't move much either after the murder. However, the story took a giant speedy leap, Kat wrapping the mystery into a neat package, then ended.

The main character Kat, was out of line, investigating the murder of her neighbor and then solved it without involving the police. She should have given the information to them, especially her detective friend, not boldly accosted or accused anyone, even if she was correct in her suspicions and findings. But that seems to be the norm in the "Cozy Murder Mystery abetted by pets" genre of novels. The heroes or the pets finding or revealing clues, and the hapless owners like curious cats get involved, sometimes to the detriment of the case or endangering their lives.

I enjoyed the characters, I look forward to seeing them gain dimension as the series goes on, as well as developing Kat's back story. Great plot, too although it wasn't so much solved as narrated. Because the story was so short, only 60 or so pages, you don't get a lot of detail needed to set up a new story. Because of this, you don't "meet" the victim and the reader has to rely on the MC to "tell" the reader about past events, motivations, etc, so it becomes less a story and more of a narrative. Which may work in fiction, but it's not very effective in mysteries. Also, I thought Matilda the cat would have more substance in the story. From the description, I thought the cat would find some way to tell Kat what she'd seen. But no, not really. The cat ended up being a part of the background except for one scene. So, overall, a promising start to a new series but not without limitations due to story length. A few more pages and this would be a solid book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was dreadful. The writing was fine, but there was absolutely no plot or character development. Boom. A suspect comes to light and with no development at all, that is who dunnit. It was too brief to even call a novella, let alone a novel. I was looking for a pleasant, light read, and this didn't satisfy. This was dreadful. The writing was fine, but there was absolutely no plot or character development. Boom.

    Kat Harper has moved home to Cherry Hills, Washington, and is settling in happily, until she finds her neighbor, Mrs. Tinsdale, murdered. The police detective who turns up to lead the investigation is childhood friend Andrew, who'll be investigating his first murder. Except, of course, Kat has to investigate, too. Mrs. Tinsdale's cat, Matilda, with no one else to give her a home, moves in with her, and she gets involved with the rescue group Matty came from, and which Mrs. Tinsdale was treasurer Kat Harper has moved home to Cherry Hills, Washington, and is settling in happily, until she finds her neighbor, Mrs. Tinsdale, murdered.

Mrs. Tinsdale's cat, Matilda, with no one else to give her a home, moves in with her, and she gets involved with the rescue group Matty came from, and which Mrs. Tinsdale was treasurer for. This puts her in contact with all of the tiny number of people who could even conceivably had any motive to kill the friendly, kindly, older woman. I like the characters. They're not very deep or complex, but they are likable. Kat also doesn't ignore all common sense and put herself in obvious and predictable danger, which is a plus. Yet it seemed a rather slight story, even for its short length. Enjoyable, but not something that will linger in your mind after you're done reading it. In addition to that, Paige Sleuth a.k.a. Marla Bradeen reads the audiobook herself, which was perhaps not wise. She's not a bad reader, but she is merely reading aloud. She reminded me more than anything of me and my cousins reading to each other in bed at night, sharing a book in our shared bedroom. Warm memories, but there are better readers out there. I bought this audiobook.

    Wow! I am amazed at how far out of step I am! I can't decide which is worse - the narrating or the writing. Both are incredibly juvenile. The redeeming feature is that it is short. No depth of character, no fully developed plot ... no explanation as to why someone would return to a town they hated ... not for a job since she's working a stop gap one while looking for one in her field. Why did she adopt the expression of a neighbour she claims to barely know? It feels like a bunch of ideas simply Wow! I am amazed at how far out of step I am!

Why did she adopt the expression of a neighbour she claims to barely know? It feels like a bunch of ideas simply thrown together. To me the whole thing was pretty sad, like the writing efforts of a sixth grader, read by someone doing sight reading. This is one series where one is more than enough for me. Though it's marked as the Kindle edition, it was actually the Audible one.

    Kat is horrified to find her elderly neighbour has been murdered. She wants to help find out who is responsible and to her surprise the detective on the case is an old friend. Upon attempting to solve this case, Kat finds more than just the murderder. Paige has written a lovely short story. The POV is in third person with the focus on the protagonist. I feel this was an excellent choice for this novel as it supported the main characters to be multi dimensional.

This is done in an adorable and realistic way. Paige has excellently shown how pets can positively impact a person's life. This story is written clearly and concisely. There is no over showing or over description. I believe it is slightly unrealistic upon how the murderder was discovered. I feel this could have been done better. The Audio is clear and I could mostly disguise between characters. Unfortunately, I feel the narration did not caption emotion well and it appeared robotic at times. I believe it may have been a mistake to have called the protagonist 'Kat', when the narration mentions 'the cat' often - it was confusing at times. Triggers - Violence and Murder. In conclusion I really enjoyed this story and I will be purchasing the additional books in this series. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries.

She pieces together the clues, learning about cats along the way. In short order she has discovered who the murderer is, the motive, and confronts her. This was an enjoyable story - a mystery with a cat, a favorite of mine. It did feel as if the middle of this story were missing, investigation and discovery, but it did occur, just quickly. At just 112 pages, the action didn't have any more space to expand. That doesn't dilute the fact that this was an enjoyable, light read. I will go on to the second in this series featuring Kat Harper and Mathilda.

    Cute idea but too easy... While the idea for this story was cute, everything was a little too convenient for the heroine to discover about the murder. There was very little misdirection and things just sort of seemed to “happen” with little actual investigating on Kat’s part. The kitty cat finds the murderer’s earring (which somehow the forensic team completely missed when they surveyed the scene??) Then she just “happens” to see the murderers torn earlobe the next day.

There was a perfectly logical explanation she COULD have given to explain her presence at the murder scene, but she doesn’t even try! She just confesses! On the plus side, the characters were interesting and had a good backstory. The descriptions of the cat’s behaviors were spot on, which was cute, especially to other cat lovers! Overall, I would not recommend this book unless you are looking for a super simple, super short “mystery” that isn’t really too much of a mystery.

While enjoyable to read, the story is short and somewhat rushed. I didn’t have a hard time getting into the story and finished it rather quickly. If you’re looking for something short, sweet, and doesn’t require a lot of thought, pick this up.

The detective investigating the case is Andrew Milhone, another foster child, with whom Kat had shared several foster homes. Kat decides to meddle in the investigation, against Andrew's wishes, and pulls some TSTL moves, which is why I rated this only OK. Loved the cat, Matilda!

    Best way to describe this...short, sweet and to the point. Started this afternoon just before work and finished it in the same day. I'm hoping that the rest of the books in the series are a bit longer and focus more on character development. I do like the main character, Kat, but didn't really get to know her very well in such a short read. That being said, I wasn't able to figure out the killer, even though there were only a few extra characters floating around.

    This was an okay story but it could have been better. Kat and Andrew are likable enough but they are flat. There was not enough character development. Kat keeps saying she didn't really know the victim and only spoke to her a few times but she has picked up one of the victim's sayings. That seemed weird. Why did Kat adopt Matilda without the victim's family having a say in it? There was no meat to the story. A woman is found dead, Kat talks to a couple of people, and Bam! the case is solved.
