When I first started The Cat Came Back, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. At the beginning of the book, I had moments of looking back in the chapter I just read to see if I missed a point, because what I was reading didn't make sense to me. As I continued reading, I got comfortabe with the writing style of Louise Clark, and I began to enjoy the book much more. (I tend to do this as I switch from one book to another.) This is my first book from Louise Clark, and I would love to read more of her work. I love a good mystery, and adding a cat to the mix just made the story better! I had moments of laughing out loud at things the cat did or said, but I don't want to give too much away, so I'll leave it at that. Overall, a very enjoyable book! *I received a copy of this book from Ebook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.

I enjoyed this book. Couldn't figure out who the killer was until the end because there were several suspects who could've been guilty. The personality of the cat throughout the book was also fun to follow. Looking forward to more from the author.

I loved the book. It was not what I expected in the least but once I started to read it I could not put it down. Loved the characters they're believable and bring you into the story. Can not wait to read the sequel.

This story starts off a little slow, but picks up quickly, moving to a thrilling climax. I received a free copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review. Christy Jamieson and her daughter, Noelle, have to move out of their mansion after her husband, Frank, disappears. The story in the media indicates that he embezzled millions of dollars from his own trust fund, sold his mansion, and ran off to Mexico with another woman. As a result of Frank's actions, Christy and Noelle are forced to move into a townhouse that was purchased for them by the Trust. The members of the Trust make it very clear that they do not like Christy and are only doing this for Noelle. Needless to say, the press is having a field day with the story and when another journalist, Quinn Armstrong, asks her for an interview, she flat-out refuses. As Christy and Noelle get settled into their new home, Christy discovers that Quinn Armstrong is also one of her neighbors. Quinn's father, Roy, has a cat that looks suspiciously like Stormy, the cat that Frank lost just before he disappeared. Then Frank is reportedly seen returning to Vancouver and Christy is certain he will contact his daughter, Noelle. When they fail to hear from Frank, Christy starts to look for him. The Board of Trustees insist that she leave it alone and let them handle it. Since the Trustees seem to be sitting on their hands, Christy enlists the aid of Quinn and his investigative skills in an attempt to track down Frank and find out what is really going on. How did Stormy end up with the Armstrongs? Did Frank really embezzle his own trust and run off or is this some cover-up by the Trustees? If it is a cover up, where is Frank and who is responsible for the missing money?

An interesting tale with a quite an unusual character in the role of the cat who is also the deceased husband. I enjoyed the characters in this cozy mystery and wonder if Frank will remain as a character in the next book of the series or if his spirit will move on now that his murderer has been apprehended.
