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?

Listener Opinions

    " great new cat mystery, as always, Koko and Yum Yum are clever and catty, reread other books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbi | 2/16/2014

    " This series is just delightful. If you need a quiet corner, a cup of java, and a good read, choose any one from this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 2/14/2014

    " I love the "Cat Who" books, but then I am a cat woman at heart. The stories are written in a very low key, subtle style. The humor is very tongue in cheek, but the mysteries are engaging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndsey Plitt | 2/5/2014

    " Very easy and enjoyable read with smooth flowing dialogue. The characters are likeable and easy to identify with. My main and only problem with it was not enough time spent on getting to know the Trevelyn family who are an integral part of the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/28/2014

    " Always enjoyable Qwilleran and his two cats solve the mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 1/28/2014

    " Engine No. 9 is brought back to the rails after being restored. However, its owner mysteriously disappears... along with millions of dollars from the bank he ran for the community. Qwill and Koko have train wrecks, the owner's wife with a rare illness that can only be cured in Switzerland, and the train owner's writer-wannabe daughter to help sort out the mystery. Another fun, enjoyable addition to the Cat Who series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorraine | 1/26/2014

    " In this book, Qwill and Polly join several locals on a charity train journey on the refurbished steam train recently restored by Floyd Treveleyan. Shortly after the trip, Floyd disappears, as do the funds from his credit union. Qwill invites his friend Celia Robinson to move to Pickaxe, and enlists her to help him investigate the Treveleyan family. Meanwhile, Koko is disturbed by the goings-on at the construction site at the other end of the apple orchard, the new home being built for Polly. Polly becomes engrossed in the building, and loses interest in anything else. She eventually suffers a mild heart attack, but recovers quickly, gives up the building of her house and moves into the Duncan mansion with her sister-in-law. Koko helps Qwill solve the mystery. "

    " Listened to it on tape while working. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 12/28/2013

    " This was a quick, easy read. Had a theme around old railroad trains and model trains. Reading books in this series has a familiar comfort. I have always liked the main characters Mr Q and his two cats. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 12/9/2013

    " Good for a day at the beach. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 11/8/2013

    " I quit reading these a few years ago, as I could never remember which ones I has read. So I downloaded this on my Kindle, thinking that I hadn't read it - until about 1/3 of the way in. But I couldn't remember the outcome, so I kept reading. Fine, but also feels like a waste of time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 K | 10/4/2013

    " The 17th in the "Cat Who" book links the cats to the mystery of a train buff who is accused of disappearing with the funds from his credit union. The ending is pat but at the very end a bit strange. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 8/25/2013

    " Excellent! Love it like all the rest! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 6/23/2013

    " More of Qwilleran, Yum Yum and KoKo :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margarette | 6/5/2013

    " Newspaper columnist Jim Qwilleran and his crime-solving Siamese cats, Koko and Yum-Yum, live in tiny Moose County and solve crimes together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 3/25/2013

    " Fun book on tape. I had to get used to the style of writing and the focus on his Siamese cats. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyn | 11/2/2012

    " Another great story by the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Newton | 9/19/2012

    " Wanted to get her name on my list as I enjoyed several of the Q books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 8/3/2012

    " This wasn't suspenseful enough for me. Perhaps it is because I read #17 first, because it was given to me, but I never really got involved with any of the characters. On the other hand, I had visions of Garrison Keillor and Lake Wobegon the entire time I was reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian | 10/3/2011

    " That man Jim, with the help of his amazing kitties can solve all of moose counties little mysteries. This is such a refreshing series of stories "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 8/29/2011

    " Fast read - good brain candy; I enjoy reading mysteries and I like cats, so this series is tailor made for me, right? It's interesting enough, although I get a little weary of some of the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 6/21/2011

    " Familiar characters, so so mystery, it's great to listen to when you are doing housework! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 6/17/2011

    " Read this for book club at Goshen Public Library after one of the members suggested it. It was fun! and a well written cozy mystery with memorable characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 6/16/2011

    " I love The Cat Who... books, I've never been disappointed with a single read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 4/16/2011

    " A good story 400 miles north of everywhere. I remember the run away train. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 2/23/2011

    " These are charming and fun mysteries. I went through a binge of everything in the series when I was younger, but haven't touched them since. I remember really enjoying them, though, and both liking the main character and the twists to the stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 2/23/2011

    " This was my first cat who book and I did not quite finish it because I got interested in another book, but I plan to read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia | 2/5/2011

    " I have read allot of her books I am looking for an update - does anyone know of her bio or when or if she passed how many books total did she put out... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathie | 12/31/2010

    " Another fun read from Lillian. I love these books for their lighthearted story lines and characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kjersti | 12/26/2010

    " I have GOT to give up on this whole series. Ugh. Just because they were fun when I was in fifth grade... I don't even like most cats! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 12/6/2010

    " Fun, light airplane read. Thought the ending was a bit abrupt and disappointing, however. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pinpin | 9/3/2010

    " Is there any way to add #1-some high number? These books are like doughnuts. They give you nothing, but empty empty eye calories. Yet you still grab one from time to time for a brainless read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 8/26/2010

    " I enjoy these books for some down time in reading. They are clean and hold my interest. Why is Mr. Q so enraptured with Polly? I keep waiting for someone better to come along, but this relationship is too convenient. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyn | 3/15/2010

    " Another great book by Lilian Jackson Braun "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate | 1/10/2010

    " Boo. What a dull book. It was in a bag from a friend who had slated it to go to Goodwill. That is where it is going now. Full of plot holes, minimal character development, and a hero with a tingling mustache and a psychic cat. A quick read, but I think I could have skipped this one... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Strother | 11/15/2009

    " Best characterizations of Koko and Yum Yum yet. Not-so-subtle recurring theme of sustainable development and importance of community involvement and investment in tourism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 11/15/2009

    " Very amusing, and a good mystery. I have enjoyed many in this series. "
