    1 thought on “A Cat to Die For”

    1. A CAT TO DIE FOR was a delightful book and sure to win over cat lovers.It’s a bit different from other cozies I’ve read. It is the first one I’ve read in this series or by the author. Looking at the covers of the four books that came before, I’m not completely sure what category they fall into. All that being said, I really did enjoy this story.Mina Calvi is an interesting protagonist. She’s unlike others I have read in cozies. In this installment of the series, she runs the Furry Frie [...]

    2. Two male Calico cats, almost alike except for one detail. Whatis that detail and why is it important?? Mina Calvi is running the Furry Friends Foundation. Thisfoundation is a no kill shelter for cats & dogs. Mina also has ananimal B&B. The FFF has a male Calico cat up for adoption named Houdini. The love of Mina’s life, Diego Moran shows up with a Greek heiress wanting Houdini although she has a look-a- like cat named Zeus. Now the adventure begins…The cat caretaker is found dead, Ho [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this book. I've read English, Hawaiian, and a few other nationality sleuths, but this is my first Italian. Mina is not so much a sleuth as a victim. Her cats aren't sleuths, either. She runs a no-kill animal shelter. The story centers around a couple of couple of calico cats, a murder, a former lover and kidnapping. A fun read with lots of twists & turns.

    4. Review of A CAT TO DIE FOR by Maria Grazia SwanMina's Adventures #5Ah, this girl. Young lady. Orphaned, wealthy, hit-and-miss young lady. Surely there exists some psychological reasons why she clings to the hope of the unattainable. Maybe she has a secret passion for suffering (not likely). Maybe she just prefers the "bad boys." The love of her life, Diego, certainly is that. Either he is exquisitely, constantly undercover, or the man is a player. Either way the poor girl keeps gettting her he [...]

    5. A little Prosecco goes well with this American-Italian offering from an Italian-American author. In Mina's 5th adventure, she has established a home, determined her path for life, and chosen her object of her love and affections. It rarely turns out as Mina wants. Mina is constantly in danger; she attracts it like a magnet. She wants Diego, but can she trust him? She love the cat Houdini, but someone kidnapped him. What's Diego's relationship with the heiress? Author Maria Grazia Swan effortless [...]

    6. “A Cat to Die For” is another wonderful read! I absolutely love the way Maria Grazia Swan writes her stories. They are funny, creative, suspenseful, and full of imagination. The characters just keep growing and developing more and more in each book of this series. I absolutely love Mina! She doesn't have to do anything wrong but, for some unknown reason; trouble just seems to find her. This book in centered on Mina's new career of finding homes for discarded pets. She finds herself in the ce [...]

    7. A wonderful and suspenseful tale! Mystery and unwanted love flood Mina Calvi's life and Ms Swan brings it right into our hearts.Mina feels like her life has hit a good point between her B&B for cats and her work at the animal shelter, that is…until Diego shows up accompanied by a spoiled princess. The Greek darling wants two things that Mina has fallen in love with, and the brat quickly proves she is more than willing to cheat to get what she wants. DiFiora is back in the picture when what [...]

    8. This Italian-American character, Mina Calvi, has established a home, vocation, and fallen in love. It never pans out long-term for Mina. Mina is always walking into dangerous situations. It's Diego's job to thwart danger, but Mina is the one who stumbles into dead bodies and danger. Everything she wants and needs seems impossible to get: her man, her cat, her cat shelter. Someone kidnapped her cat Houdini. What's Diego's relationship with the heiress? Maria Grazia Swan weaves romance with her my [...]

    9. This is another wonderful read from Maria Grazia Swan. Its main focus is on Mina's new venture, finding homes for abandoned pets. Even the mystery involves one of the cats from the shelter, Houdini. Mina and Diego are supposedly moving on, but they get thrown together again when Houdini is catnapped after being adopted by Diego's new girlfriend. Will they give in to the feelings they still feel for one another, or will they try to go their separate ways once and for all?I still find Mina to be r [...]

    10. This is an excellent entry in the "Mina's Adventures" series by Maria Grazia Swan. This is a wonderful series and Ms. Swan's way of telling a story is quirky and fun. These types of mysteries fall into a category that is hard to describe but is just the type of mystery I love. Mina is a likable and engaging character and Diego, her romantic interest, is perfect for her. But alas, the star-crossed lovers have quite a mystery on their hands this time around, involving cats, cats and more cats. Wha [...]

    11. Now, in Mina's 5th book, she has set up her home, her career, and hopefully her partner. Things rarely turn out like Mina wants: she's always is in trouble (she draws trouble to her). She wants Diego, but isn't sure she trusts him. Her cat Houdini is kidnapped. And it seems Diego and the heiress may be involved. Author Maria Grazia Swan describes the settings & characters in humorous detail. I have just finished book 5 & I have book 6 to read. I'm want to know the truth about Diego. (and [...]

    12. I received an ARC eBook in exchange for an honest review. Another fun filled mystery adventure with Mina Calvi, De Fiore, Diego, Margo, Gino, 2 Male Calicoes and more!! I love Mina's adventures and this one did not disappoint! I highly recommend this series and this author!

    13. This is a cute book. Who wouldn't love a book with a cat by the name of Houdini that is an escape artist? I found this to be a fun read with a good mystery and likable characters. Plus it also points to the value of no kill animal shelters and the animals that they rescue.

    14. This was an okay readThis wasn't the best book I've ever read, but it certainly wasn't the worst. I loved the "cat lady" aspect, although Mina seemed a bit thick at times (especially when it came to her ex-lover). I just didn't care for her much, and Margo was completely annoying. Now, give me a book where Millie's the MC, and I'm there! Also, there were several typos and incorrectly used words that could be caught with a good proofread - and some sentences were so poorly written I could barely [...]

    15. A Cat To Die For is the fifth book of author Maria Grazia Swan's Mina’s Adventures series. The book is suitable for reading on its own although I was a little lost understanding the relationship between the central characters not having read books 1-4 in the series. I found the book entertaining and would recommend it to other readers. Looking forward to reading the earlier books in the series and future books as well.

    16. A comfortable cozy way to spend a day.Starting a series at book 5 can be difficult but this author handled the characters so well that I was able to enjoy the story, catch a glimpse of former relationships that make me want to find previous books, and still keep up with the plot about calico cats.Well done.

    17. Love of CatsThis book had everything I likeeryLoveals. This is the first book for me by this author but it won't be the last. As much as I love animals this story was about what I always would have loved to do.ue and find homes for all the four legged animals that needed help. Now for her next book

    18. A beautiful book, hard to forget This book is a work of art, it has a wonderful Italian lady, cats, a gun toting grandma, a mysterious man and rival love interests. What more can a book need, e meraviglioso, scritto d'un artista.

    19. Good readI gave a four star rating because I liked the book. Mina is a pet rescuer and she loves her job. But trouble always follows her this is a light hearted cosy. If you love animals then you'll enjoy this book.

    20. I really enjoyed this book and read it in less than 24 hours. It was so slow at first, I didn't think I would be able to finished. The story soon picked up and I wasn't able to put it down!

    21. Goodthis young woman who has used her inherited money to start animal shelteren the murder and cat kidnapping happened well

    22. GreatFor a cat story this is a great read. You can picture the felines and the characters. Will read more by author.

    23. Abook for cat lovers.I picked this book because I love cats and I love to read. The book is awesome. Easy to read. Full of cats and mystery. Do check it out.

    24. Has one of your animals ever disappeared? I can tell you it is the most frightening thing that can ever possibly happen to a person, especially when it is a cat--they can hide like nobodies business. Gremlin, who is now over the rainbow, disappeared on me once--I wandered the streets for hours--tears running down my face calling his name. Well it turned out that he never left the apartment at all-I still don't know where the heck he hid (the renting agent was in my apartment-I was about to move- [...]

    25. A Cat to Die ForMaria Grazia SwanThis is the 5th book in the Mina’s Adventure. Mina loves her life working with her Furry Friends Foundation as well as the Ritzy Cat’s B. & B. At least that was until the Saturday she and fellow worker, Linda, at Furry Friends are working an adopt-a-fair at Dana Point Harbor. All had gone well until it was time to start closing up and of course the male calico cat named Houdini decides he doesn’t want to be in a pet cage and does his well known act of e [...]

    26. What a delightful cozy mystery. I am a big fan of this series since I stumbled upon the first book by chance. I picked up the book because teh title character reminded me of an Italian singer who was popular in Germany when I was young. It turns out the author wrote the book with said singer in mind.Mina is a divorced woman who has begun to dedicate her life to a cat rescue and B&B. The handover of a cat turns dramatic when Mina discovers a woman bleeding on the floor. So dedicated is Mina t [...]

    27. Charming and entertaining mystery book with a wonderful Italian touch. Mina, who is still hung up about her ex, has a few dates but her life seems dedicated to the Furry Friends Foundation. A cat 'pick up' leads her to a seemingly dead body and pushes her in the centre of the investigation.Her ex Diego gets involved in the investigation, too.The story is much better than regular chick lit or women's sleuth because of the character depth. How Mina deals with her broken heart and cats makes her a [...]

    28. This is the first book I've read in this series, and I was worried that it would be hard to get into, since it is actually book 5, but I was captured immediately and thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, it was so much fun that I read it in one sitting. Now, I will have to go and get the rest of the books to see what happened before and what happens next. Fun, cozy read!
