Cats’ Eyes is a cat-lovers’ mystery about a cat-loving fifty-something-year-old woman who doesn’t just love her own pets; she helps out at the shelter; she fosters cats in need; and she gets uncommonly tangled in danger and mystery, rather like a cat getting tangled in wool. Chapters are headed with cool cat motifs and intriguing tidbits of information about cats, making the pages of this novel a delight to savor. The protagonist, not quite a crazy cat-lady, is convincingly human, enjoying the b ...more

A fun read, following the misadventures of a cat shelter volunteer who finds herself in the middle of a series of escalating crimes. Lots of unexpected twists and turns, with interesting cat facts thrown into every chapter.

When one of Lynley's five cats brings a rock into the house, she thinks nothing of it, but that's the start of a summer of mystery and danger. With the help of her friends at the Friends of Felines animal shelter, she has to get to the bottom of both a jewel theft and a murder or be the next victim. I enjoyed the mystery and the cat tidbits at the beginning of each chapter.

After just losing my cat, Sammy, I wasn't sure that reading a book regarding cats in any form would be good. BOY was I wrong !!!! Being a "crazy" cat lover myself and having rescued 2 wonderful cats there was so much I could understand and relate to in Cats' Eyes by Mollie Hunt. If you are a cat lover or even an animal lover and pet owner I HIGHLY recommend grabbing this book. It is the first in Hunt's Crazy Cat Lady Mystery series and I cannot wait to get my paws on book two, Copy Cats.

Very good and fun!!

I've never read the author before, but I'm sure glad I found this book. I love cats (and dogs) and the book revolved around cats and a great mystery. I really like that the author put information and tips about cats at the beginning of each chapter.
The only thing that I didn't care for- The main character, 58 year old Lynley, calls her mother by her first name, Carol, and not mom. Lynley's granddaughter calls her Lynley, instead of grandma. It's no big deal, it just bugged me.

What a fun ride of a read! This book has very well-developed characters, both likeable and unlikeable, an adorable cast of cats (each with their own distinctive personalities). I love that the protagonist works at an animal shelter, what a great thing to do!

This book went fast and quick for me (even though I was in a hospital stay).

I enjoyed it so much I'm starting number 2 in the series.

Keep up the great work!

Lynley Cannon is the crazy cat lady, much of the fifty-eight-year-old retiree’s life is focused on cata.

Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer. Mollie is the author of the Crazy Cat Lady mystery series featuring Lynley Cannon, a retiree and cat shelter volunteer who manages to find more trouble than a cat in a catnip patch.
