Note: This book is told from the cat's point of view. If you are not into talking cats, this is not the book for you. But If you love cats, and love the idea of exploring their world and the adventures that are a part of it, you will love this cat mystery series.
My take on this book:
I love finding a new author to read and with Cats on the Prowl Nancy C. Davis has gained a fan in me. I always enjoy reading a good cozy mystery and when animals are included it's always an added bonus for me. With this mystery we meet Nat and Willow. Willow is a beautiful stray kitty who has come to live with Nat at the police station. Nat is a seasoned police cat which means he knows how to solve crimes, and he has decided to teach Willow the ropes. Soon these two crime solving kitties and trying to solve the latest murder which happens to be the local baker.
The author weaves such an interesting who dun it that once I started reading I couldn't put the story down. Sure we are seeing the crime be solved through the eyes of cats, but honestly once I got into the story that actually became something that I quite enjoyed. Bits of humor, descriptions that easily allowed me to envision the characters, human and feline, along with an interesting mystery made this a page turning read. I will say that I found a few editing errors but that didn't detract from the overall story. I certainly will be watching for the next installment of A Cat Detective cozy mystery series.
