Fat Cat Spreads Out is the second book in the A Fat Cat Mystery series.

Again, Quincy, the structurally enhanced(i.e. Fat Cat) cat owned by Charity “Chase” Oliver figures prominently in this book.

Charity “Chase” Oliver and Anne Larson own the Bar None, where they produce the best dessert bars, bar none. They have recently hired a new employee, Inga, and she seems to be working out well. Chase and Anne have been busy baking their newest dessert treat, Harvest Bars, that will sell at their booth at the Bunyan County Harvest Festival.

Anne and Chase are busy unloading their bars and other items at their boot and unseen to them, Quincy makes a quick exit from the basket that he had squirreled away in and is off to find other tasty tidbits to satisfy his hunger. But, from the crumbs and chewed on packages, Charity knows that they had a stowaway. She takes off to find Quincy and bumps into Dr. Mike Ramos, Quincy's vet and someone Charity would like to she more often, but not a professional level. He mentions that he thought he saw a cat go into the building where butter sculpting is in going on. In addition to finding Quincy, he also finds the lifeless body of Larry Oake who has been stabbed with a sculpting tool. Being as Ramos was the one to find the body and accusations from the victim's wife, he becomes a prime suspect.

Charity begins to do some of her own sleuthing in hope of clearing Ramos' name. She soon finds that three of the other sculptor have had words with Oake and even his wife doesn't seem to upset and will be getting the proceeds from a nice life insurance policy. Charity will need to find the murderer before there is a complete meltdown.

The series has a very nice cast of character that this reader would be happy to call friend. I also enjoy reading what is going on in Quincy mind all thru the book.

Looking forward to book 3, for sure. ( )

This is such a delightful series. Author Janet Cantrell has created a wonderful setting, with such likable characters, and some hilarious situations. She has truly embraced the cozy mystery genre, and I for one can’t get enough!

It was great to be back at The Bar None with Charity “Charlie”, Anna, and of course, that fat cat tabby himself, Quincy. Getting to read the thoughts going on in Quincy’s head is so fun! I’ve often wondered what my own pets are thinking.

For as much as I loved book one, FAT CAT AT LARGE, I have to say that this second installment, FAT CAT SPREADS OUT, was even better! The plot was perfection. The mystery was well thought out and had me scratching my head trying to figure out “whodunit” and why. I laughed out loud so often I lost count. And the thought of all those yummy treats had my tum growling through most of the book.

FAT CAT SPREADS OUT, indeed, the Fat Cat series itself, has everything a cozy mystery fan is looking for and more. Ms. Cantrell has penned one of the must read mysteries of the year!

And check out the back of the book for two great recipes. One for humans and one for cats! ( )

Butterscotch tabby Quincy is back and hungrier than ever in this frisky follow-up to Fat Cat at Large

A booth at the Bunyan County Harvest Fair seems like the perfect opportunity for Charity “Chase” Oliver and Anna Larson to promote their Bar None bakery business. Unfortunately, plus-sized pussycat Quincy has plans for their delicious dessert bars other than selling them to customers. After tearing through their inventory, Quincy goes roaming the fairgrounds in search of more delights.

But what he finds is murder. One of the top contenders in a butter-sculpting contest has been killed, and Chase is churning on the inside when she sees Quincy’s handsome veterinarian, Dr. Mike Ramos, being led away by the police. With a little help from a kitty with butter on his whiskers, Chase needs to find the real killer and clear the doctor’s good name…

Includes recipes for people and cats!
