This book by Lilian Jackson Braun is interesting and light and contains just
enough humor to entertain while leading the reader through a mystery that cannot be
solved until the last few pages! Reporter James Qwilleran investigates another crime with the aid of his Siamese cats. Unfortunate accidents seem to be happening in this one!
A visit to Breakfast Island for Qwill and the cats is anything but a vacation. Accidents start occuring and a suspicious fatal boating accident have Qwill and company sticking their noses in (or should I say whiskers??)
The 'breakfast' in the title refers to the name of an island where Qwill and the Siamese go for vacation ... while Polly vacations in Oregon. Besides Scrabble, Koko can now play Dominoes as well ... and picked out numbers that correspond to letters in the alphabet ... to spell out clues to the murders happening on the island. The only puzzling part in the book was the northern hurricane. I have never heard of a hurricane happening in any of the Great Lakes region, where I've lived most of my life. Other than that, this book was another enjoyable mystery with Koko and Yum Yum.
