But when a tart-tongued innkeeper hires her to find the murderer of a renowned chef and the valuable cookery book that's gone missing from thescene of the crime, Eileen and the inn's handsome sous-chef must each risk at least one of their nine lives in a dangerous whisker-to-whisker encounter with a felonious Abyssinian. Throughout the book, charming period illustrations evoke turn-of-the-century Boston.
