The Cat Who books center on the life of former This is a series. Not wanting to go into spoilers, he has no reaction to any of the entirely bizarre read: badly contrived catastrophes happening to him. He does more community benefiting things as well as personal things than he normamally does in a novel. In the 29th installment of Brauns beloved, bestselling Cat Who. It seemed a nice visit with old friends in Moose County.
Except Koko, that is—and he's not telling. Once I started reading I didn't want to stop, and in fact finished it in one night. Sure, the last few books in the series get pretty short and formulaic and only give the slightest nod to being a mystery, but they still do what Braun did best: Illustrate a cozy, light, and humorous day in the life of her beloved Qwill, Koko, and Yum Yum. If the home you love is on fire why wouldn't you go to the scene? Don't let me dissuade anyone from starting the series; they are really good cozy mysteries at the beginning. This was a seriously unsatisfying end to what was a very charming and occasionally enthralling sleuth series. Just because she doesn't seem to give any hints or clues about crimes doesn't mean she's unimportant.

Not much was really known about Braun, as she prefered to keep her private life that way.
They were either ove Wow. Qwill is already set up with a new girlfriend, a head librarian. This book has a very surprising finish that makes it way different than the other books in this series. Eh, is this how the book ends? I had first thought I had missed a volume, as a major-minor character was mentioned as having died No spoiler here: He was a hundred years old and a good friend of main character Jim Qwilleran. I usually enjoy the series as a light-fun-read, but this book definitely disappointed.
There were actually some lines and conversations that were noticeable repeated within a few pages. It didn't end; there was no resolution, no conclusion; it just stopped. Or, why wouldn't you say how bad the damage was? I was surprised when the book suddenly ended. Polly Duncan is off to Paris, momentarily leaving Qwill without a companion for his apple-barn concerts, and The Librarians Who Lunch are getting ready to put on a show of their spectacular Art Hats to help unite Pickax with their Lockmaster County neighbors. But the things that killed me the most were the literary references. I actually did that a couple of times while reading.
This one was a big old mess though and even somewhat incomprehensable. Meanwhile, things are spicing up in Pickax. I'm on page 59 now, and I may force my way through to the end, but I strongly suspect that this will be the last one I read. I love shopping on ebay. Cat lovers, rest assured that all of the cats are all right. Vote in the poll and ratings.
These last two are awful and won't win any new readers to the series. New York Times best-selling author Lilian Jackson Braun has won a dedicated following over the years with her endearing Cat Who. No call to Qwill, no apology to the man who was Not sure of the purpose of this book. Seldom do I get as engrossed in a book the way I did this one. Well, he won't have to worry about that anymore. And I hate to say it, but I think Braun is losing her touch. Despite having read all of The Cat Who.
Koko is an amazing cat, but Yum Yum is special in her own right. About Me For those new to me or my reviews.

Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere, is in an uproar good and bad following vast inheritances from wealthy old families. I've finished it now, and I'd like to know where to send the bill for the time I wasted in reading it. She later began working as an advertising copywriter for many of Detroit's department stores.
