I love Carolyn Hart books. Which is why I feel silly being a little wary of her latest, What The Cat Saw. Lately, I find a book with a paranormal twist and I’m on guard for a really really bad ride. Most of the time I am wrong. Which was the case with this book.
Nela Farley suddenly developed the ability to read the minds of cats when her fiance was killed. When she goes to Oklahoma to help out her sister, she ends up rooming with a dead woman’s cat. The cat is telling Nela that the accident was not really an accident at all. But who would want Marian Grant dead? Why? Nela puts her investigative reporter skills to use and sets out to find the answers to those questions.
Hart has a pleasant, low-key way of telling a tale. I’m not saying she doesn’t create page-turners. But she keeps everything to a low simmer, bringing out the story slowly and delectably. If I was a wine drinker, I would make some comparison to a heady burgundy–whatever that is!
What Carolyn Hart does is make you want to know the characters better. Which is why I am tickled that What The Cat Saw is the first in a series, according to her website!
This is a can’t miss! Check it out!
