Petectives - A Cat Mystery by Robert J. Smith

Petectives - A Cat Mystery by Robert J. Smith is a quick eBook read that I finished in roughly two and a half hours and it is  approximately 140 pages. If you love cats and dogs, mysteries and stories told through the eyes of animals, then you may enjoy reading this novella. 

The plot summary for Petectives is as follows from Amazon:
It’s almost Halloween and cat detectives Yoshi and Gatsby are up to their collars in mystery in this humorous whodunnit for pet lovers. When Gatsby and Yoshi decide to help a pretty young cat find her missing brother, what starts as a routine missing pet investigation soon pits them against both a gang of vicious criminal pit bulls as well as the neighborhood dog police, who are looking into rumors of dogfights. While Gatsby’s up to his whiskers in danger and romance, Yoshi’s putting together the pieces of a puzzle that could rock their community. Can the boys find a missing cat and shut down a dogfighting operation while staying two steps ahead of the local dog police? It’s all in a night’s work for the Petectives!
I thought the premise of Petectives was really cute as I do love mystery novels and animals featured in novels as well! But somehow the writing feel flat... Not enough, umph to it. I thought there was more telling of the storyline verses showing through action. 

I'm giving Petectives a rating of 5 stars out of 10 stars. I'm not interested in reading anymore novellas in the Petectives series.

Until my next post, happy reading!
