A light and amusing mystery/detective story. I can just see it as a film, maybe a Walt Disney film.
The writing is impeccable, and the author has a gift for phrasing - 'about as warm as a Huron January' and 'his air of patient melancholy.' I particularly enjoyed the accounts of the attempted capture of Marmalade. You know cats - the smug certainty of the master of the house, the cat, rings so true. 4 stars for that, and a fifth for the accounts of the mischief and mayhem that an active and maybe malicious cat could create.
Incredible value for 99c.

Not bad for a first attempt, but I did feel I was reading a somewhat formulaic student story. It was predictable and the crime element totally preposterous and unlikely. The basic idea to take the cat and build a tale around it was quite a good idea, but the characters were shallow and just gave the impression that the young author hadn't been around long enough to have the life experience to give them any depth. A quick, easy read but nothing at all to get your teeth into. Would have been better as a short story in a women's' magazine.

This is a fun, romantic, crime novel along the lines of Mary Stewart. It is full of engaging human characters but the real star is Marmalade the cat. His antics are the joy of the book. He has been left a fortune in the will of his owner, much to the horror of her family. They must look after him if they are to eventually inherit the fortune and he really makes the most of his strong position, until disaster strikes ...

I enjoyed this - the Dunbar family unit is amusing, touching and well portrayed. The plot was a little predictable, but an enjoyable romp.
