This is the first Marian Babson book that I have read. I thought that it was pretty good except that at times it was really hard to follow. The main character Lorinda, owns two cats, Had-I and But-Known. They are always going over to their friend Freddie's house and eating. It was kind of a strange book. It didn't really seem to have much of a mystery to it. It was a very quick read only being 192 pages, so if you are looking for something that won't take too long, this is the book to read.

I was a little apprehensive to pick this book up, however I am somewhat happy that I did. This is really the first murder-mystery that I have read, and while it wasn't great it did open me up to a new genre that I previously didn't think that I would like.

Marion Babson does a great job at developing her characters. Her characters were people I could imagine actually running into. They did not seem to be distant fantasy characters with whom I could not connect.

I enjoyed reading this book until the end. The story was built up and I was anticipating the end so much that I was disappointed. Her resolution was very short and seemed to abrupt. I would have liked there to be a little more insight into the ending.

Overall I would say that this was very readable and I will be looking for something else of hers to read in the near future.

A decomposing body... a severed head in a closet... a macabre meeting with "Mother" --mystery writer Lorinda Lucas tosses yet another paperback in the trash, appalled at the gruesome direction of today's crime fiction. She's even more disturbed at the half-starved state of Roscoe, the cat next door. Before Lorinda left for her latest book tour, Roscoe was as plump and pampered as her own two felines, "Had-I" and "But-Known."

It only takes a modicum of sleuthing to find out that in Lorinda's absence Roscoe's owner, Macho Magee, has acquired a new girlfriend --- a harridan who has put the gentle Macho and his pet on a strict diet. And that's only the first disturbing news in Brimful Coffers, the once-quiet village that now includes a writer's colony. Lorinda soon discovers that a hit-and-run has ended a child's life, professional jealousy has taken a deadly twist, and murder is just around the catty-corner...
