Reading progress update: I've listened 121 out of 520 minutes.
Six Cats a Slayin' (Cat in the Stacks Mystery) - Miranda James

No one's been murdered yet, but we do have some mysterious kittens dropped off by someone the main character, Charlie, thinks is probably a frightened child, and a new neighbor who insists that she has a long history in the area but who no one seems to know anything about or even fully remember (one person thinks she looks somewhat familiar, but that's it). There have been several scenes of Diesel acting as the kittens' adorable babysitter, letting Charlie know when the tiny idiots were doing something that might get them hurt.

The Gamekeeper's Lady - Ann Lethbridge

(You know how I said I might be able to finish this? I'm annoyed enough right now that I'm back to not being so sure about that.)

 

These characters are so stupid. Frederica just asked Robert to model for her in the nude, or at least mostly nude. She doesn't care about her reputation, insists she doesn't have one (her mother is known as the Whore around the house, because she conceived Frederica out of wedlock and then, I think, ran off after Frederica's birth). Only a couple pages ago he'd reminded her that he could be fired just for letting her in his house alone at night. But hey, now he's agreeing to model for her.

 

Robert's managed to keep his dick in his pants so far, but this tells me he really hasn't learned his lesson since the incident three years ago.

Surprise, I'm listening to something new. This one's a bit risky: Book 10 of a series where I've only read Book 1 before. But in my experience, although you miss out on the development of character relationships, it's generally okay to read cozy mysteries out of order.

 

I'm really surprised that the narrator is female, considering that the book is a first person male POV.

The Gamekeeper's Lady - Ann Lethbridge

This is definitely going to end up on my "offload" pile, but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to finish it. It's now three years after the book's horrible beginning, and I think we're supposed to see that time as the hero's wild and stupid days. He's definitely paying for it now, anyway. I'm still not wild about the on-page "lying around in bed with another man's wife" bit, though, and grossed out about the woman he'd just had sex with trying to hook him up with her niece before they'd both even gotten dressed.

 

So far the romance is of the instant physical attraction variety. Meh.

The Gamekeeper's Lady - Ann Lethbridge

I decided to go with this, but that might have been a bad decision. The book starts with the hero naked in bed after having slept with another man's wife, who suggests that he settle down and maybe marry her niece. He's now being ditched by all the men he usually spends time with (some friends, some not), apparently because he refused to marry the cousin of one of them after she falsely claimed he'd slept with her.
