What a silly, stupid, and pointless book.

... And I actually stayed up late reading that drivel because I could not put it down.

Seriously, this was a lot of fun! It was very silly and pretty darn pointless, but let's be real... it's a book about this cat who swaps bodies with a lady, both of which who have murderous crazy people after them. What I liked most about this book is that it didn't pretend to be anything more than what it is - just a cute little fun break from reality. There was no try

I've just begun reading this book and, already, I think it's fabulous and funny! Terrific characterizations and an intriguing premise keep me looking forward to more.

ETA: This book is just delightful!! The characters and the comedy kept me reading, even during an intensely busy time. More to come soon, as far as a full review, but I highly recommend this story and look forward to more by Ms. Ramer!

Good mystery, very sweet romance with lots of humor. If you love cats you need to try this book. There is a great cast of characters to enjoy. This is a fun and light read not for those who takes their story serious. I would recommend this to PNR reader that likes their stories light on the sexual side.

This book is for people that wouldn’t mind a cat swapping souls with a human and for that cat to use that body *clears throat* for things LOL.
I found Belle very witty, smart and possessive to Max
This is one of the multitude of ebooks on my To Be Read list that have sat for a couple of years or more before cracking it open and diving in. After reading another book that also released free from Edie Ramer that involved animal characters as the focal point to the story was really looking forward to this book.

Belle as a cat is pretty predictable, as a human female once she switches bodies with Sorcha she is totally outrageous but in a good way.

The romance elements take place very few and far

From Lilac Wolf and Stuff

It's a body switch story, except it's between a human woman (who happens to be psychic) and a female cat. Belle, the cat, who finds she generally dislikes how complicated it is to be human. I love that she doesn't let anyone get to her, and continues to come and go as she pleases and does what she wants, she stays very catlike in attitude. Highlight of being human? Learning to use the can opener so she can eat tuna anytime. Also she learns how to read and gets sucked int

Belle is happy with her life as a cat, she lives with her owner Max and is adored by him and his brother & sister. She rules the roost as all cats do and is fed, petted and fussed over on demand - it's a cats life! When she is in an accident and exchanges bodies with a human she is horrified with her new hairless, clumsy body and wants nothing more than to go back to her life as a cat. However with more than one person out to get her she is going to have to use all her cat wiles to make sure ...more

I liked the book. It is pure fantasy but who wouldn't want to be a cat. Think about it. Lots of petting, warm bed, someone to clean your 'house' but that's only if you have a good human. In this story, Belle the cat loves her human man and he loves her but Caroline, a human who wants the man, hates the cat because the cat sees the evil in Caroline. As the result of a car accident, the driver is thrown out of the car at the exact same time that Caroline throws Belle into the path of that car. The ...more

Belle was happy. What cat wouldn't be when she had a man like Max to fill her every need? Now, the woman that was trying to get her claws into Max did not make Belle happy. Especially when said woman tried to kill her!

Sorcha Anders was in trouble...the life and death kind of trouble. While trying to escape the man who had just murdered her fiancé and planned on the same fate for her...everything changed.

Max Brannigan was going to do it after twenty years. Yep, he was going

I quite enjoyed this light romantic tale of body switching. As an owner of three cats, I have to admit I may be a little biased. I gravitate to cat-based stories like a dog to a chew toy, but the story still needs to hold its own and this one certainly did.

Belle (the cat) and Sorcha (the human) switch bodies (or souls, if you prefer) and experience what it is like to live like the other. They must adapt to their new experiences while dealing with murderers, unfamiliar amorous feelings, mean nann

This was a fun, quirky read. Belle is a cat who is adored by her human, Max. One day Max's evil former beauty queen interior designer throws Belle in front of a car to kill her. The woman driving the car, Sorcha, and Belle somehow exchange bodies and Belle ends up in a human body. Sorcha the psychic ends up in Belle's cat body.

The book follows the three women: Belle the cat turned human, Sorcha the human turned cat, and Caroline the interior designer who has designs on Max. The one character I

This was a cute fun read. I thought the storyline was unique and different. The story is about a cat named Belle and her human owner Max. Max is headstrong and the man in his family. After his father's death, at the age of 12 Max took over the company and took over as head of the family. He is the type who makes all the decisons and is the one in charge. Max rescued Belle and the two had a fun home life. Belle is a cat and is stubborn and is used to getting her own way, until Caroline moves in. ...more

Read this book.

My 4-star rating is a high 4 stars, docked from 5 because yes, Cattitude could probably-perhaps have benefited from some stream-line editing, and because something was wonky with the e-book formatting. Which, in today's market, counts as a critique.

Cattitude was not the 1600 pages long that my paid-for-through-BN copy showed it to be, thank goodness. The cover file was tiny, and there were page-gaps between chapters.

This review is also on my blog, Clover Hill Book Reviews.

The cover on this is quite fun, and gives you a good idea what the main plot is about. I like the shades of purple and pink used as well, and the wispy detail of Belle's tail on the cover. What the cover won't tell you is the fantastic storyline which meld with the feline story.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm a cat person, and the idea of this book intrigued me from the synopsis. The plot far exceeded what I thought it might be, the ch
Hilarious and entertaining! Cattitude was intriguing, let's face it a cat turning into human and having to adjust to walking, eating, learning to talk and read, and yikes, taking a SHOWER for crying out loud. I absolutely loved all Belle's and Max's parts of the book! Cattitude is fresh, new and hilarious!

Now the the critique part... There were too many point-of-views that distracted a reader from the story and it slows the book down, if it had been up to me I would have cut off Gwen and Phil's

I LOVED this book. As a cat lover, I was drawn to the tagline: Anything a human can do a cat can do better. How perfect! That's a sentiment I see my cat thinking every day. In her heroine, Belle, Edie Ramer has managed to capture the feline thought process and translate it into a humorous and endearing character who charmed me from the first page. The book is often laugh out loud funny, as when Belle is considering living life as a woman instead of a cat and decides she'd rather have a hairball ...more

At first, I had issues with the way characters were kinda put out there right out the gate. It was not a bad thing, it had more to do with me and my recent reading habits. I have been reading two person books... maybe three... So, I was not in the frame of mind to read and remember all these characters. I actually put it down for a little while. Okay... it was only like for about an hour because I simply had to know what happened to Belle and Max. Ms. Edie did an awesome job of roping me in! And ...more

Cattitude is about Belle and Sorcha who are too different from one another. For one, Belle is a cat and Sorcha a psychic but both have something in common - someone wants to kill them. Belle enjoys her life with Max and his family after she was saved when she was a kitten. Sorcha is a psychic who was used by her boyfriend to take advantage of a rich man. Belle's problems started when she kept messing around with Caroline who wants to marry Max out of his money and Sorcha tries to run away from h ...more

Edie Ramer did a phenomenal job in writing a book that truly has it all! It is fun, funny, dangerous, mysterious, and filled with a perfect combination of suspense and romance.

Edie Ramer’s debut novel, Cattitude is a clever, sometimes laugh-out-loud story about a woman and cat who change bodies. Two untidy romances follow on the heels of the transformation. Cat turned woman falls for her owner, and woman turned cat falls for a little girl with a heart of gold and a deep longing for . . . you guessed it . . . a cat! A gun wielding killer and gold-digging floozy add just enough danger and conflict to carry the story nicely from start to finish.

Cattitude is full of sass and quirkiness. This cute, original story features Belle, whose owner, Max, is being stalked by the gold-digging Caroline. Caroline wants Max’s millions but not his cat. Fortunately, Belle survives being thrown in front of a car by the evil Caroline, and ends up trading bodies with the driver, Sorcha, who’s a psychic.

Belle’s and Sorcha’s lives become interesting and crazy, but even as Belle grows to like her human body more and more as she falls in love with Max, she re

A Catnip filled Romance

Brilliant idea of a swap between a cat and a woman. And this cat does have a great attitude. Quite humorous as the former cat learns to take baths, eat with a fork etc... Also dangers lurk as potential murder is possible from several different directions. Max is the dependable, handsome hero who has misplaced his cat, but picked up a stray woman. Well you can see how this story will eventually end. But the getting there is so much fun.

This book was extremely entertaining. I loved the characters, and the descriptions. Without spoilers, I can say that Belle, the cat and Sorcha, the human trade bodies (not willingly), I liked the way that Belle learned to be a human and Sorcha a cat. I'm looking forward to reading more by the author.

I was gifted this book with no expectations. The review is my honest opinion.
Jan 29, 2014 Elaine rated it it was amazing
Really great story. Bella was a cat who loved her family and saw a threat. Sorcha was a psychic who had been searching for love all her life and never actually found it. After an accident Bella and Sorcha swapped bodies and had to learn to exist all over again. Did they return to the old to save the other or go for a new life they really wanted all along? I loved it!
