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.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 16, 2012 – At the outset of Babson’s lively eighth mystery featuring aging London actresses Evangeline Sinclair and Trixie Dolan (after 2003’s The Cat Who Wasn’t a Dog), Trixie’s daughter, Martha, and Martha’s book editor, Jocasta, are busy testing recipes for a new cookbook in Evangeline and Trixie’s kitchen when an unexpected guest arrives at the actresses’ apartment. Banquo Fitzfothergill, who’s “just returned from a solo mission to the North Pole to monitor the retreating glaciers,” demands to see his “beautiful bride,” Melisande, who he believes is the one putting together the new cookbook. Alas, Melisande dropped dead after giving a cooking demonstration while Banquo was away, and Jocasta, afraid to tell Banquo the bad news, hides until he departs. Meanwhile, Martha is annoyed to learn that she was the second choice to edit the cookbook. Fans of frothy, dialogue-heavy British cozies will be in heaven right up to the madcap climax.
