Book Spotlight-Fat Cat at Large (a Fat Cat Mystery)-Janet Cantrell

Friday, September 26, 2014


I actually read and loved this little book. It is a murder mystery but reads like a cozy! It was so enjoyable. The title of this book alone grabbed me--I have a fat cat of my own! She used to be skinny or at least weighed what she should when I first adopted her---but like Quincey she had other ideas when it came to eating and when. I am now awaiting the next book in this delightful series. If you would like to read my entire review of this book CLICK HERE

About the Book: (from Amazon)

FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

When she’s not dreaming up irresistible dessert bars for her Minneapolis treatery, Bar None, Charity “Chase” Oliver is running after her cat, Quincy—a tubby tabby with a gift for sniffing out edibles. But what happens when this cat burglar leads Chase to the scene of a real crime?

The jig is up for Chase’s adorable plus-size cat, Quincy. His new vet says “diet”—that means no more cherry cheesecake bars. From now on he gets low-calorie kibble only. But one taste of the stuff is all it takes to drive him in search of better things. Quincy’s escape is the last thing Chase needs after the nasty run-in she has with underhanded business rival Gabe Naughtly.

Chase tracks Quincy down in a neighbor’s kitchen, where he’s devouring a meatloaf, unaware of the much more serious crime he’s stumbled upon. Gabe’s corpse is lying on the kitchen floor, and when Chase is discovered at the murder scene, she becomes suspect number one. Now, with a little help from her friends—both human and feline—she’ll have to catch the real killer or wind up behind bars that aren’t so sweet.

Includes recipes for people and cats!

My dad use to have a chubby pup that was put on a diet and I remember him going crazy always trying to sneak food when my dad wasn't looking!!
The books sounds really good and even though I think I would enjoy the mystery, I think I would like seeing the chubby kitty too!!

Sounds like a lovely book! I have two cats of my own. But neither of them is fat. Both are tomcats and spend too much energy chasing behind girls, lol
