Marian Babson brings back theater actresses Trixie and Evangeline in No Cooperation from the Cat, her latest cat-suffused cozy!
Trixie's daughter Martha has taken up residence in the kitchen she shares with her friend Evangeline. Martha is frantically testing last-minute recipes to meet the deadline for her cookbook, helped by Jocasta, her overworked editor. When a strange man bursts into their lives, it's revealed that Martha was not the first choice for the cookbook, and that the woman originally working on it died after eating something at a cooking demonstration. Unwanted guests descend on the already crowded and tense apartment, one of whom ends up dead. Cho-Cho-San, the lovely Japanese bobtail cat, joins in the fun as Trixie and Evangeline become entangled in another puzzling murder.
Babson delivers a delightfully witty mystery with a cast sure to induce laughs, including one cat that will steal readers' hearts.

I became aware of a stealthy movement from Tom's corner and my hopes rose. Until i heard the telltale click. Oh, great! We might all be slaughtered, but there'd be some prizewinning photos left behind recording the event. Too bad Tom wasn't going to live to claim the credit-and all the syndication payments for them. Another stealthy movement beside us. Nigel had unobtrusively stepped in front of Jocasta to try to shield her. I wished I didn't know that one bullet could take out two people standing that close to each other. Meanwhile, Banquo was trying to shuffle behind Valeria, the largest of his cousins. My hero!
