    1. Ok, so you have probably noticed a trend here. I love this series. It's not really McReading; it's in a better class than that, but I find it incredibly satisfying to have, thanks to old Celtic lore, cats who can talk and read, dream, hope, love and, oh yes, solve crimes. What more could one ask? Rousseau Murphy clearly has a sense of humor and a great love for cats. She doesn't waste your time wandering around on unnecessary backstory, but she also does not plunk a character into the story with [...]

    2. I enjoy this series more and more with each entry. Taking place in the fictional town of Molena Point, California, it is home to a colony of special cats as well as humans in many creative vocations. I love how each book centers on a different family or cat, and we get to know them better. Each character -- human and cat -- grows with each book in this highly recommended series. This is the 17th Joe Grey mystery, and Shirley Rousseau Murphy has created a tail with many twists and turns. Murphy i [...]

    3. Originally posted on The Akamai Reader.Actually a 4.5 star rating.So much of this book broke my heart. Murphy brought the reader’s attention to the heartbreaking situation that occurs when a family is turned out of their home and are left homeless. What happens to their cats? their dogs? Often times dogs can be leashed and kept with a family but not cats. That’s what happened to Emmy Lou, a down and out woman who lost her job and her home. She had to abandon her cats.But the character I enjo [...]

    4. Another wonderful mystery featuring feline sleuths Joe Grey, Dulcie, and Kit. This whodunit involves the plight of cats left homeless after their owners abandon them as foreclosures follow the collapse of the housing bubble. Fortunately, caring humans in the seaside village of Molena Point, in Northern California, join together to care for the starving felines.Meanwhile, an elderly alcoholic woman, Hesmerra, is found dead after her house catches fire, leaving her 12-year-old grandson, Billy, hom [...]

    5. When first I opened this book I expected it to be a silly noveld perhaps the thought of talking cats could be considered silly. But, I found this book to be charming and totally fun to read! As a murder mystery it was also intriguing. I would suggest this book to anyone who feels like the weight of the world is on their shoulders because it will lift the gloom and make you smile. I will be buying another of the Joe Grey tales soon. Enjoy!

    6. This is the first book I have read among the many that Shirley Rousseau Murphy has written about the cat Joe Grey that can speak and understand English and solve crimes with the help of other felines and humans. There were so many characters--human and feline that I had to make myself a character list. Notwithstanding, Cat Telling Tales, was well written and easy to read.

    7. There continues to be an astonishing amount of activity in tiny Molena Point, California, and a highly intelligent new tom cat has joined the feline sleuths.

    8. Good story as usual love the Cat (Joe gray stories) I can put myself in the cats place and see them talking. Love it.

    9. Originally published at Reading RealityOnce upon a time (1992) there was an epic fantasy titled The Catswold Portal, written by Shirley Rousseau Murphy. I remember it as being a lovely little story, all the better for the possibility that some cats could switch between human form and feline form, and that some cats could have human speech and human intelligence.While there is no direct link, at least so far, it is pretty clear that at least some of the ideas from The Catswold Portal found their [...]

    10. My 17th Joe Grey book. What I would really like to do now is sit down in a coffee shop with Shirley Rousseau Murphy and talk. She is obviously a woman with an interesting mind, fertile imagination, and a good sense of humor. Her writing ability elevates these books above the level of simple anthropomorphism, giving each of the talking cats a distinct and quite human personality without losing their overall cat-ness. This tale includes information about helping stray cats, as well as a complicate [...]

    11. A delight!Just found this series and can’t say enough about this book. Magical, so well written, makes me wish my cats could talk!

    12. A mystery reader mentally challenge buffet.So many new characters with hidden motives.So many plot twists.Challenges every armchair sleuth to solve the who done it.

    13. A very fine tale told through the eyes of the local magical cats, each with his or her own view of the world.Joe Grey belongs with Ryan and Clyde. Ryan is a construction contractor, Clyde repairs cars.Dulcie belongs with Wilma, a retired parole officer.Misto is the old cat who lives with the Firettis, the vet and his wife. They feed feral cats.Kit is the young female cat who lives with Lucinda and Pedric, an elderly local couple.Arrives Pan, a handsome red tabby who is Misto's son, all the way f [...]

    14. A woman named Debbie shows up at Joe Grey's house. She claims she is hiding from her husband, a real estate agent. Her mother's house burned down & her mother is dead. Her nephew is now orphaned, neither Debbie or her sister are willing to take him in. Another real estate agent is missing. A homeless woman discovers her friend is missing as well. Also the economy is so bad that people are being evicted from their homes & they are leaving their pets behind. Joe Grey's friends are working [...]

    15. Cat Telling Mysteries: A Joe Grey Mystery, by Shirley Rousseau Murphy, William Morrow, 2011, 384 Pages, ISBN-13: 978-0061806926, $19.99Stretch your imagination with this fun mystery story where cats can talk, deduce and think intelligently. While feline detective Joe Grey and his kitty cohorts, Dulcie and Kit, are busy rescuing starving, abandoned family pets, a new case of murder and mayhem catches their attention in Murphy’s’ new release—16th release of the Cat Telling Mystery series.Joi [...]

    16. This is my second Joe Grey mystery and I really enjoyed the read. The stories, and the underlying mystery are well thought out, with characters that, while somewhat predictable, are solid and there are enough twists and turns to keep your interest. I was skeptical at first, that a talking cat would really put this in the realm of being too ridiculous to enjoy, but it is well done in how it is handled, so while you need to have some suspension of disbelief, you are totally enchanted with Joe, Dul [...]

    17. Such a pleasant visit with the gang at Molena Point. I love how this series is slowly growing closer to the world of Catswold Portal as we are given more hints about the fabled race of cat-folk. And now we have FIVE speaking cats. The actual mystery was secondary, for me, to the progress in the cat society. The author really focused on the plight of abandoned pets, especially cats- almost too much message this time- but I can forgive because I get all warm & fuzzy every time a new book is re [...]

    18. I am usually a person who isn't drawn to books entitled things like The Cat Who Saved The Day, etc, but something about this book made me pick it up. It's great! Everything works.e brought to life Celtic myth (if it is a myth) of cats who can talk to humans, the well paced mystery itself, and the very timely topic of real estate slump, homelessness and abandoned and neglected animals.Recommended.

    19. I love all the Joe Grey books, started after they were all written, so read thru all as fast as I could. Now I'm waiting and waiting and waiting for the next one. The author left too much hanging at the end of this book. Not going to go into details, i hate spoilers. Lets just say you get hooked and you love the characters.If you love cats, especially the mystery of cats you'll love the series. and this from a dog person.

    20. I was never really a cat person until I started reading the Cat Who Books, the Joe Grey Mysteries and the cat in the (fill in the color) alphabet books mysteries. I have suddenly realized that I believe cats are smart and clever and really quite human-- don't mean to offend the cats with that remark. This author has kept the series moving and is on its 17th mystery and the cast keeps growing and adding more depth each new book!

    21. This is the first book in the Joe Grey series I have read and I really enjoyed it. Certain cats have the ability to speak human language, and they help the humans in their town solve crimes. The plot is really nicely done, and the mythos of why and how some cats can talk is rich and interesting. Will read more in the series.

    22. Joe Grey to the rescue. Not only does he have Dulcie but Kit is there and now Misto and some one from Misto's past too. A lot of skulking around, people sleeping in cars, lots of dumped pets, and a couple of murders. Makes for a mish mosh of a story line. I really like the fact that Joe and his little clowder have the ability to think and act on their reasoning.

    23. The plotting was good--it kept my interest, and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. However, first the reader must suspend disbelief and accept the notion that some cats are so talented they can read, talk, and solve mysteries. The fatal flaw for me, though, was the seemingly endless run-on sentences. This author needs a better editor!

    24. I enjoy this series but this book was a little too preachy and didn't focus as much on the regular characters. I've noticed authors lately using their fiction/mystery books to get on their soapbox about their pet projects (no pun intended) and I find it annoying!

    25. Who can resist cats who talk to their humans and help solve mysteries in a small village on the coast of California. These cats are very special and very few in number, they talk only to people they know and trust and boy can they talk? Great characters and lovable cats.

    26. As you can see from my other books that I have read that I love a good mystery that without the help of cats the case would not be solved. This one is that way. Any time I can find A book by this authorI try to read it

    27. Oh Wow! What a read!!! I thought I've read one in the series a while back, but not sure anymore Either way - wonderful book, talking cats, mystery, cats in love, people in love, what else can one bookworm want? :D :D :DAbsolutely loved it!!!!
