I loved this book. Cait finds a body of a man who is barely alive, when he wakes he has amnesia. Cait and friends begin a search to find out who he is and don't like what they begin to find. I love the fact that this was based more on the man with amnesia than a murder, a refreshing change. This story twists so you are never sure where it's going to take you. These characters are great and I would love to hang around them. I will continue on with this series. There is the added bonus of some yummy sounding recipes in the back.

I absolutely LOVED this story! There is an amnesiac, a murder, a bank robber...and Cait and Tara could be losing their business. All of this for the gang to deal with in the week before Christmas, as well as Cait and Cody being in charge of the kids Christmas program. I thought I knew who John Doe was, but although I was close, I wasn't right. He's a wonderful person, and I hope we get to know him better in the future. I was thrilled with the way everything turned out in the story, and I hope we get to read about Cait and Cody's getaway in the next book.

A purrfect Christmas story for readers who are busy during the holidays. I’m starting my Christmas reading a little early this year as I have gone a bit overboard in adding Christmas stories to my reading list. This was a perfect selection for me as it combines two of my favorite things: cats and Christmas! Welcome to Madrona Island where Coffee Cat Books owner and amateur sleuth Caitlin and her friend Tara have received the bad news that their business loan has been sold. The new mortgage holder plans to call in the loan and take over the property. While at home absorbing this news, Cait hears scratching at her door to discover that there is a cat outside. She soon learns that the cat, Clarence, who belongs to her island witch friend, is there to lead her to her next mystery investigation. She finds a man with a severe head injury and suffering from amnesia. Cait, with the help of friends, encounters plenty of dead ends and a lot of surprises as she tries to help him regain his identity. I very much enjoyed getting to know the residents of Madrona Island as well as following the twists and turns in Cait’s efforts to help the injured John Doe. If I had one wish, it would be to have seen more of Clarence. But that’s the cat lady in me and not a detriment to the story. This is a fast and easy read for anyone who does not have a lot of time but enjoys a good book.

Another Wonderful Day on Madrona Island! Just another day on Madrona Island! Caitlin Hart’s relaxing evening changes with a phone call from her BFF and partner in Coffee Cat Books Tara O’Brian and the appearance of another one of Tansy’s magical cats, Clarence. Tara is really upset about a ‘due on demand’ demand for the balance of their business loan fearing the loss of their business is imminent. And Clarence shows up leading Cait out into the storm to discover a seriously injured man who seems to have lost his memory. Cait heads off to uncover the identity of the mysterious John Doe dubbed ‘Prince Charming.’ Like a scavenger hunt, each shop or restaurant or seedy bar provides another avenue of inquiry. However, having paid cash for all of his purchases, and although friendly and generous, no names were ever exchanged. Cait also struggles with the real possibility her business is in jeopardy. Family and friends again step up to help, but it seems hopeless. And when another body, this one dead, shows up. The integrity of the mysterious man comes into question. I really like Kathi Daley’s ‘magical cats.’ Every story in this series a new ‘furry friend’ pops up and meows to provide the right amount of help to solve the mystery, and for “…Christmas Present,” ’Clarence?’ is a nice nod to “It’s a Wonderful Life”’s angel. It isn’t a complicated story. A couple of possible solutions and the “I hope he isn’t the bad guy” prayers make it a very fun read with a heartwarming conclusion for all. Once again you enjoy Cait, the family, friends, and the little village in which they reside. We are also treated to a variety of recipes from Kathi and her fans perfect for any holiday gathering.

The Cat of Christmas Present is the 10th book in the Whales and Tails Cozy Mystery Series. Kathi Daley provides us with yet a wonderful holiday mystery. It is two week before Christmas and Cait is busy with many Holiday activities on Madrona Island where Cait and her family have always lived. When a new mystery cat shows up we think a murder is to follow. But the body that Clarence leads Cait to is not alive. The gang finds out that he has amnesia and no one knows who it it. They treat it like any other mystery and set out to solve it. In the mean time the bank sells the loan on Cait and Tara's business. Is Christmas going to be spoiled? I love all Kathi Daley's book but cant wait to read her Holiday ones. I wish you would read the whole series but for sure read this one!
