Phone Kitten by Marika Christian

I recently read Phone Kitten by Marika Christian. This book follows Emily,
who after blowing up at her boss looses her job at the newspaper. In an effort to make money to pay for school she becomes a phone sex operator. After a not so chance meeting with a client she is threatened and scared, but not to worry because Emily soon finds out that this client has been murdered. She gets this idea that she is going to be the one to solve his murder and write an amazing article for a newspaper.

While the premise of Phone Kitten is great. I found the book to be not as exciting as I thought it would be. I kept wanting something exciting to happen and it did not until the last third of the book. The build up to that point was extremely slow. There was a video at the end which I was told would be hysterical. I found it rather stupid and a complete waste! It did nothing to make the book seem more exciting.

If you like light-hearted books with a little bit of mystery this is the one for you. This book has often been compared to the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I feel this book has nothing on those books! Remember this is just one person's opinion. Please read it and make your own. I would love to hear what you think!

  1. Thanks for participating in the tour!

  2. Well, I agree with you about one thing. I don't think an Evanovich lover would really like this book. To me, it relies a lot more on genuine wit than slapstick.

  3. I wanted to thank you for taking the time to read and review Phone Kitten - I appreciate it!


  4. I respectfully disagree with the most of the review. I found the book to be clever, lots of fun and I really liked Emily. We get insight to an industry most of us would never dream of entering---and its not raunchy at all. I think you have to walk a mighty fine line to write about the things she does, keep it clean and make it funny.

    I do agree that the video was really horrid. It acts almost as a deterrant to buying the book, in my opinion.
