REVIEW: The Cat Saw Who Did It by J.S. Ellis is a simply delightful book. I know, I know we are talking about murder here but, we are also talking about a cool cat. Theodore is his name. This is the second book for Theodore. The Neighbors Cat was book one which came out in 2020. I bought the book in anticipation of reading this one. I forgot I had it, so now I need to go back and read it.
This is a sequel to book one but, my experience tells me that this book does very well as a stand alone. I did not get confused or wonder what was going on. The author tells us everything we need to know to enjoy this second story.
The Cat Saw Who Did It is a murder mystery in case you couldn’t tell from the title. Theodore is one of the main characters and he actually narrates part of the book. I told you he is a cool cat. He is a very beautiful Tuxedo cat. More points for Theodore. He is nosey and he has a bit of personality like all cats. The other main character is Jane. She owns Theodore as much as anyone can own a cat. I absolutely fell in love with Theodore. I liked Jane and could relate to her as well. There were some other characters that were not as likable and there were some that were not fleshed out as much.
I did like the murder story and I liked the hair raising ending. J.S. Ellis did a wonderful job with the story line. Her characterization of a cat was spot on in my opinion. This book had me turning pages and hanging on the edge of my chair and holding my breath. I was definitely along for the ride from page one. If you love a quirky little murder mystery, this book is probably one you will enjoy. I think you should put it on the top of your reading list. Until next time…Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: I have aided in the capture of a serial killer, which is made even more impressive by the fact that I… am a cat.
Happily settled in with Jane, a would-be victim I helped to save, I thought my days as an amateur sleuth would be traded for belly rubs and sunbeam naps.
Until I watched the man in the apartment complex opposite ours, murder his wife. Once again, it falls to me to help the bumbling humans bring a killer to justice.
Step one is proving to Jane that something horrible happened.
But how do I convince her a crime occurred in the dark of the night? More importantly, how can I prevent her from becoming his next target?
