Qwill is given a new writing assignment. He is to write a column about gourmet foods. He relocates the gang to a new place called Maus Haus. There he meets an old girlfriend who is married to a potter and is a potter herself. She tells Qwill that she is unhappy in her marriage and wants a divorce. The next day she disappears. Her husband Dan says that she has run off to Florida, but Qwill suspects otherwise. Then the houseboy disappears and Qwill is busy trying to figure out where everyone is disappearing to. Let the famous Koko and Yum Yum solve the case with a typewriter and a ball of yarn. I really liked this story because I wasn't able to piece it altogether until the very end.

Another fun little "Cat Who..." book. This time Qwilleran, KoKo, and YumYum move into an artist enclave where Qwilleran encounters his former love, now an unhappily married potter. You can tell where this one is going, right? Suffice to say, KoKo solves it again.

I like this series and the mischief that the cats get into, but the storyline was yucky. I', not keeping this book even though I am collecting the series.

The famous Koko has done it again! This time, Qwill not only needs to solve the mystery at the Maus Haus, but also why he keeps gaining weight despite being on a very strict diet. Another great Lilian Jackson Braun novel.

Another winning entry in Lilian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who..." series. This poignant, sometimes shocking and overly amusing story about great food and sensibly priced murder at an eccentric boardinghouse includes a clever twist:with the exception of Qwill and dignified lawyer-cum-landlord-cum-frustrated chef Robert Maus, the surnames of this book's main characters all refer to some type of food, drink or seasonings:Mrs. Marron, Max Sorrel, William Vittelo [a type of veal:], Joy Graham (formerly Joy Graham), Hixie Rice, Rosemary Whiting; even the seaford restraunt next door is owned by Joe Pike. As Quill experiences an emotional surprize reunion with Joy, his first love who essentially jilted him at the altar two decades earlier, he relies on Koko's instincts to help him solve a number of mysterious disappearances - until a shocking incident, and an even more shocking discovery in the pages in an old book lead Qwill to a grisly conclusion - and a deadly showdown. NOTE:this book includes a VERY emotional chapter in which Qwill is led to believe that his cats have died;if you're the type of reader who cries over scenes like this(I know I am!), you've been warned!
