Great first book in this series, looking forward to all of the ones to come. Cozy, fun and if you love cats, marvelous. Since I have a Maine Coon, it's especially nice, since he's also a rescue.

I love these books with the Maine Coon Cat. The plots are interesting and the characters are believable and down home. No lurid sex scenes mar the plot but there is a gentle romantic theme to most.

I barely finished this book. For some reason, I just found it dull. I didn't think the main character was very exciting (though I liked his cat), and I just didn't really care what happened to him. The plotting was ok, but not very fast paced. I know I could not write a book this well, but I still found it dull.

I generally love mysteries with cats, but this author plods along. I hope the next book in the series is a little better than this one.

Murder Past Due is an engaging, albeit somewhat typical cozy. Retired librarian and widower Charlie Harris - and his sidekick cat Diesel - are very likeble. However I've had a hard time reconciling that Charlie is male. Sure there are many real and fictional kind, sensitive, bright and helpful men out there but as written, the Charlie character would be much more believeable as a woman.
