Cat Got Your Secrets: A Kitty Couture Mystery - Julie Chase

Julie Chase brings her plot to life with the help of her relatable characters, and her description of the great city of New Orleans. Lacy Crocker is back and fins herself thrust into another murder mystery. When her father is named a person of interest for the murder of his friend after an argument, Lacy knows that she has to help detective Jack Oliver solve the mystery. Lacy also has to help her mother with the organizing of the upcoming National Pet Pageant, all the while deciding if her heart belongs to Jac or Chase. I got an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.com and Crooked Lane books.

Kitty’s Big Trouble
Kitty's Big Trouble - Carrie Vaughn
Kitty Norville, Book 9

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continuation of a series.

The Characters:

Kitty Norville:
Ben O’Farrell:
Cormac/Amelia, Sun, Anastasia:

The Story:

This title is misleading, Kitty is always in trouble but with so much going on I see why the author kept it simple. This story was anything but simple. With monsters and relics and gods and centuries old vampires. Oh and pack members that are now magically inclined. There is an excellent setup for the next book which I look forward to getting my hands on.

Marguerite Gavin deserves a shout out because her portrayal of Kitty and company is unbeatable. I think a great amount of my love for this series is due to her.

Writing: Intricate and slightly overwhelming, like I like it.
Forward Motion: Excellent,not a moment of lull. Seriously the characters have to be exhausted.
Overall Interest: Great. I actually listened to the last 45 minutes at work this morning.
Length of Reading Time: Good
Re-read-ability: No.

The Random Thoughts:

I kinda hope we get to see Sun again. I really liked his character.

I just had a thought: Is the title related to/a play on Big Trouble in Little China? I’ve never seen the film so I am clueless.

The Score Card:

4 Stars

An early reader.
Kitty and Me (Reading Stars) - Judy Wolfman,Brett Greiman

I shared this with my toddler grandchildren and it got a bit of a mixed response. They love being able to read books on my Kindle with me but they definitely have their favourites. The eldest, nearly two years old, likes the book, but always wants to skip forwards to the dog - considering that she is surrounded by cats I find this a bit surprising. No other part of the book holds her attention. My grandson, 6 months younger, watched it intently and with much more enthusiasm.

 

Having said that, this is not solely a book for toddlers, it is intended to introduce a number of very simple words, which are repeated throughout, to start early readers along the route towards reading. For this reason it is pretty simple.

I'm not, personally, a great fan of the artwork and the story doesn't have much to appeal to parents for repeated reading (like The Gruffalo or Dear Zoo, for example), but it serves its purpose as an early reader and we'll probably return to it from time to time.
