Inca, a Siberian puss, tells the story about her furry family – her brother Fromage, who is addicted to cheese and considers himself a cheese monger, and her sister, Cara, a gorgeous but timid Siamese. Inca, an avid fan of Dr. House, considers herself the leader of the troupe and responsible for the well-being of the family. They own, according to Inca, Missy, a young humanoid who has a well-established cheese shop in Paris. The story revolves around how Missy decides to move to London with her co-partners, Jacques and Genevieve, to run their new cheese shop and café. Can Fromage leave his pal, Charlotte, behind? Soon after arriving in London, the three cats accompany Missy to their neighbor’s house where they meet Monk, a blue Russian cat and Terrance, a golden retriever owned by their famous neighbor, a detective named Solo, living in the same compound in Kensington.
Things start to get interesting when Monk tries to help their neighbor, Polo, a sad little Pekinese whose mistress, a formerly well-known opera singer who is pining for her lost husband, has her valuable diamond necklace stolen. Can Inca and her family assist Monk and Terrance to recover the diamond necklace and resolve Polo’s problems?
I thought that this was a fun read. I myself am more of a dog lover but in this book you can't help but fall in love with all of the cats. At first I did have a little trouble trying to keep the different cats apart. Luckily, they have their own personalities so it did not take me too long to keep them straight. What I enjoyed the most was Fromage's love of cheese. All kinds of cheese. He could have been a lover of fish but he is too refine to just like fish. The idea of him having been born in a cheese shop and now wanting to own his own was cute.
As I stated that I am a dog lover. I did not have to worry too much as there was Terrance. He was a nice addition to the story. The mystery surrounding the stolen necklace was a nice touch. How everyone banded together to solve the mystery kept things entertaining. Young readers will enjoy this book and getting to know all of the cats and Terrance.

Life turns interesting when their neighborhood tough dog - Boss comes around asking for help to save the loss of his master and domicile. Another mystery to solve with the help of their neighbors Monk the Blue Russian cat and Polo the Pekinese doggy. An eventful time is around the corner for the newly formed detective team headed by Inca.
In this book, Inca, Cara, Fromage, and Charlotte are back. As well as new faces. While, this book may have been titled a holiday read, it can be read anytime of the year. The more I am familiar with all of the cats, the more I like them. Another mystery for Inca and her team of detectives. Which was fun to follow and see how Inca and the rest would solve this one. Although, as much as I enjoyed everyone from the first book; for some reason I had a harder time in the beginning jumping right into this story. It took me until about a third of the way into the story before I really found my groove. Again, however, this is just me. The younger readers will have no problems reading this book.
