I started to write this review with no pussyfooting around. I know that people do odd things when they’re put on the spot, but I thought a venue was a place to hold a wedding, not a group of vultures. Since kindness is its own reward, then he who rides the tiger finds it difficult to dismount. So, make a new plan, Stan – even if it is a step-ball-change. You could be toasty fire on a winter’s night and covered in French dip when solving a catnapping started a catfight. Confused??? This is what h ...more

These collections of short stores are perfect for reading while on vacation. You can pick up and read a short-story in a day or less and then move onto the next one! I haven't finished the whole book, but all the stories so far are terrific! I've even found some new (to me) authors that I look forward to reading some of their full length books!

This book is chock full of cute, short stories where the felines play an important role in solving the crimes. Some stories are better than others, but they all are a delight to read. Since they are short, the plot may end too quickly or the characters may not be developed enough to one's liking. But this does not deter from the quality of the story.

When a group of my favorite authors gets together to share some of their short stories, I am immediately interested. Subject matters of interlinked felines and homicides? Sounds like fun. Characters from other series I may have read (or want to)? I'm hooked! While a couple of the tales feel rather skeletal, most are fully fleshed and all stand on their own, providing introductions to both authors and their worlds, in a wonderfully varied selection.

Could not put it down.

Once I started to read this collection I felt compelled to read "just one more" . Loved them all. All different. All enjoyable.
