Book Review: Cattitude

by: Edie Ramer

Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

It's all in the Cattitude...

After Belle the cat switches bodies with a psychic on the run from a murderer, she wants her perfect cat body back instead of this furless human one. But she doesn't count on falling in love with her former owner. Or that a CEO and a beauty queen want to use up her nine lives. Now is her chance to prove anything a human can do, a cat can do better.

"Cattitude is a magical tale that you won't soon forget. Edie Ramer has a writing voice that charms, and she pulls the reader right into Belle's amazing world." -Cynthia Eden, bestselling author of Deadly Fear and I'll be Slaying You

I did not do this intentionally - review 2 Edie Ramer books in one week...but I have to say after reading Dragon Blues and Galaxy Girls, I was excited to slip into another of Edie's fantasy tales.

It's a body switch story, except it's between a human woman (who happens to be psychic) and a female cat. Belle, the cat, who finds she generally dislikes how complicated it is to be human. I love that she doesn't let anyone get to her, and continues to come and go as she pleases and does what she wants, she stays very catlike in attitude. Highlight of being human? Learning to use the can opener so she can eat tuna anytime. Also she learns how to read and gets sucked into Harry Potter. As someone who is reading them for the 3rd time, I see how that can happen. lol

Sorcha, finds that she kind of likes being a cat. It's quiet; in the switch, her powers fizzle out and she has silence in her mind for the first time in her life. She also finds a little girl who loves her unconditionally and truly needs her.

Edie keeps the suspense up in this story because not only are you unsure about them switching back, which both generally want to do, but Sorcha has people who want to kill her. Well, technically one of them wants to kill Belle who is in Sorcha's body, but you'll have to read the tale to figure that one out.

And I would say that is also contains the strong female lead and a man who doesn't care that she's strong. And this is odd, because he's a man who is used to taking care of people.

I can now say, without a doubt, I am an Edie Ramer fan!

  1. Angie, thank you so much for another wonderful review. Belle was my most fun character to write, and I would love to be just like her. I loved Sorcha's story, too, in a different way. I'm so glad you enjoyed the story.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :0)
