Publisher's Summary

For most people, dreams are a way to escape reality. But for Cat McCormick, they're a way to get closer to the truth. Cat can slip into other people's dreams. After graduating college with a degree in criminal justice but little in the way of real-life experience, Cat moves from the Midwest to Seattle to apprentice with her Granny Grace, who shares the ability. Granny uses dreamslipping as a private investigator, and Cat plans to follow in her footsteps. But forced to take work as a security guard, Cat discovers a mother and daughter on the run. Following the clues, she goes undercover in a Midwestern megachurch, where she finds redemption and goodwill amidst repression, hypocrisy, and murder.

Perchance to dream

It seems that we are seeing more and more books that merge genres. I have read several mysteries with touches of the paranormal, some of which have been enhanced by the combination, some of which haven’t. The author combines the paranormal elements with the mystery in natural and unforced ways that make this book a treat for people who like both genres.

The author intertwines the mystery, the personal story of Cat and her family, and her romances seamlessly, with no one theme detracting from any of the others. She writes with a light touch, and can express both humor and tragedy with understanding and sensitivity. I, for one, hope to see more of this series, since the premise, and the exposition of that premise both work for me, and work very well.

The narrator provided a fully professional performance.

Cat in the flock

This young adult story of dream walking was interesting. It kept my mind busy during a pain filled week so I am grateful for the chance to read it.

Cat in the Flock

Well I think this is the first time I have ever read a book and then turned around and immediately listened to the audio version! I would have to say - I liked it! It was kind of like reading a book then watching the movie. Only better because they change things in a movie version, and in an audio its exactly the same.

I think I liked the audio even better than the print book! Maybe just slightly better. It was certainly fun listening to it! And I usually read pretty carefully, but there were things that I heard on the audio that I didn't remember in the book. So I didn't feel like it was a waste to do both - I'm glad I did both! And it reaffirmed my love for Cat! I think I loved her even more in the audio! I thought the reader's voice was perfect for Cat.

And once again - I am really looking forward to reading/listening to the rest of the series!

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving an audio copy of this book from Partners in Crime Tours - Thank You!

Cat in the Flock

I loved this book!Cat is a young woman who can 'dreamslip' like her Grandma.She moves to Seattle to take over Grandmas PI business.She has a lot to learn! I enjoyed this book with exceptions of the narration of other voices than Cats.Everyone else seemed to scream,which I found rather annoying.Angel Clark may want to stick to regular narration and not voices.I was given this book free by either the author,narrator or publisher.

Intriguing story, poor narration

What did you love best about Cat in the Flock?

I enjoyed the story, the characters were interesting and well-developed, and the dream slipping was intriguing. The ending was totally unexpected and sad, but it was still a good ending.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Cat (the main character) and her granny was a real character! I also liked Wendy from the Plantation church.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator, Angel Clark, was okay when narrating the main character, but her accents were absolutely terrible for the other characters, especially Granny Grace. I disliked the accents so much that I bought the ebook. I did manage to stick with the audio though because I did like the story.

Any additional comments?

I did enjoy the story well enough to pre-order the second book in the series, Framed and Burning.

I received this audiobook free from the author via Audiobookblast.

Intriquing

I received an audio version of this book free for review. Totally enjoyable mystery about a young woman with the ability to slip into someone else's dreams. As a P.I. she is able to use the dream slipping to solve mysteries. The way the author writes in the dream slipping makes it appear to be a normal everyday occurrence. It's a good quick read and a good beginning to a long series.

Look forward to the next in the series.

The narration was good as long as she was reading the main character but became high and squeaky when reading the other parts.

Good voice for Cat. Shrill voice for some other characters.

Interesting how some people are against homosexual marriage to cover their own homosexual secret.

Decent story, distracted by narration

For me this was an interesting concept for a story. What could you do if you could walk into other peoples’ dreams? Could it be a useful gift/curse to have? This book presents a plausible scenario to answer those questions. We are introduced to the main character Cat in this first in a series book, and I imagine we will get to know a bit more of the characters presented as the series progresses. While some of the scenarios were a bit too convenient (the main character just jumps on a plane to go undercover in a megachurch, seemingly without much research or prior planning), it wasn’t enough to distract me, and I actually liked the story.

What did distract me was the narration. It was sort a mixed bag. On the one hand the voice and tone the narrator used for the characters was alright. The enunciation was clear enough. The volume was good. My problem was the pauses: There were pauses in the … middle of sentences in places ... that didn’t make sense. It made it seem like there was punctuation where there shouldn’t be and that sentences ended halfway through. Unfortunately this had the effect of jarring me out of the story, sounding awkward, and annoying me so much I started bookmarking all the places it was happening in a chapter just to confirm to myself that I wasn’t fixating on something that wasn’t actually occurring all that much. … There were a lot of bookmarks in that chapter. I still mostly enjoyed the story especially in the parts where there weren’t as many weird pauses (which is why it's 2 instead of 1 star). Just…listen to the sample not only of this book but to at least one other by this narrator to make sure you can stand it.
