I enjoyed the book...as I do all of "The Cat Who...."
books. Dorothy T
It is May, following the earliest spring on record in Moose County, Qwill and his Siamese cats, Koko & Yum Yum, embark on another series of adventures, involving the opening of Pickaxe's new art center, the sale of land by a widow and her death shortly afterward, the underhanded activities of a town councilman, and the usual Pickaxe characters and their activities. As usual. it's Qwill and Koko who unravel the mystery and solve the various problems.
When I first started reading this series almost 25 years ago I really liked the books. Now after all this time, the Cat Who books just seem repetitive with so many old and new characters being introduced it seems like the largest part of the story. That said, this book was a quick read and still somewhat enjoyable.
Interesting book. Storyline alright - parts are confusing in the references, if you do not understand the references the author makes than you loose parts of the storyline. Overall book very level. Sections that should be climatic are only mildly so kept expecting more drama. Never happened.
Gotta love the cat books!
