My Review: Liar, Liar is book one in the Cat DeLuca Mystery series by K.J. Larsen. Larsen brings us an audiobook chock full of excitement from the first page. In her Momma’s words, Caterina DeLuca takes dirty pictures. But not in the way you’re thinking, Cat takes those pictures to catch cheatin’ husbands.
Cat is the owner and operator of her own successful business, Pants on Fire Detective Agency. She’s well known in the area for catching cheating husbands and digging up dirt on anyone she’s paid to dig on. She has a huge Italian family, the majority are some of Chicago’s finest. Her dad, brothers and extended family are all weaved into the police force and she’s grown up around the madness.
Cat’s life is tossed into the line of fire after she takes a case from Rita Polansky. Rita hired Cat to keep an eye on her filthy, cheating husband, Chance. Chance isn’t Rita’s husband, but he is smokin’ hot with those cobalt blue eyes. Things get deep in Cat’s life really fast and the mystery builds throughout the audiobook as she hunts to catch a killer.
This was a great listen and I finished it in no time! I couldn’t put it down, and kept my iPod busy with this audiobook. Great, great story with great characters. I can’t wait for book two in the series, Sticks and Stones to be released on February 7, 2012.
Narrator Review: Vanessa Hart nailed this narration! Her voice was perfect for Cat’s personality and made her character shine. Hart’s timing worked great with scene changes and she moved seamlessly through the novel.
