Publisher's Summary

The development of a major resort complex at the southern end of Pear Island, affectionately known as Breakfast Island, is turning the town upside down. Local residents, summer people, and mainland fishermen are all hopping mad that the peace of their retreat is being shattered. But who is angry enough to murder?

When a cabin cruiser explosion in the marina sets off a series of "accidents", Qwilleran begins to wonder if sabotage is involved. But he has his work cut out for him. There are plenty of suspects, plenty of motives, and plenty more "accidents" occurring. Can Qwill and the cats uncover the murderer's identity before they become the victims of one of the many mishaps plaguing Breakfast Island?

With Koko and Yum Yum on the scene, you can bet that the mysterious events on Breakfast Island will be exposed. But will it happen before someone else is killed?

    I am a senior citizen who loves a good mystery, but I object to books with profanity and explicit sexual situations.

    "MY FAVORITE "cozy mystery" series!!"

    I am in the process of obtaining ALL of the "Cat Who" series on audio. This task is a bit difficult because Audible does not have all of them, nor does my library. For anyone who is not aware of this series, I will say this: LJB began writing this series in 1966. The last book was written in 2007, I believe. To my knowledge, there are 31 books in the series, but don't quote me on that! It's very light reading/listening. One of those series where you get to "know" the characters and can't wait to get into the next book. LJB wrote with absolutely NO undesirable language, and when a murder occurs, there are no gory details. George Guidall IS James Qwilleran. (To me, anyway!) Even when I listen to him narrate another book, I associate him with J.Q.
    It's fun to listen to the series in order, (the first book being "The Cat Who Could Read Backwards"), but it's not absolutely necessary.
    This is not an exciting series - if you like your mysteries to have excitement and gore and obscenities, I would predict you would be bored with the "Cat Who" books.

    "not a mystery"

    I was disappointed in this book. I thought it would be more of a mystery, but it isn't. It is a nice book but didn't meet my appetite for a good mystery. The cats are cute and funny.

    "very good listen"
    Would you listen to The Cat Who Came to Breakfast again? Why?

    No. The few words that were mispronounced
    were very irritating!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As always!


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great character representation.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but as always her books are hard to put down.

    "WOW, George Guidall brings it all to life"
    What did you love best about The Cat Who Came to Breakfast?

    I have read all the cat books and must say that the audio versions are even better than the books, especially with Guidall as the reader. Just makes me understand the characters better hearing his interpretation.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really, this is light reading, cute and fun


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He nails the lead character and actually makes him much more likeable
