Lilian Jackson Braun. The Cat Who Could Read Backward . He read the weather prediction (unseasonably warm) and the circulation figures (427,463) and the publisher's slogan snobbishly printed in Latin (Fiat Flux). He lives alone - with a cat, if you can picture that! A lot of people think the cat writes the column, and they may be right. Is his stuff any good?" "He thinks so. You look nice in your white suit," Qwilleran said. She'll be dressed like Pocahontas or the Empress of China. I'm going to wear my orange ca. tic about his new headgear. On the road to Pickax he pointed out the turkey farm. Mildred brought us some turkey from the farm one day, and it was the best I've ever tasted. That's because it was raised naturally," Rosemary explained.

Qwill's career slump sends him to Mooseville and his aunt's country cottage. But Qwill is a city mouse, and when he samples a little of the local color on a three-hour fishing expedition, his line snags on murder.

Very well written, very enjoyable! Can't give these little "Cat Who" books 5 stars because they're not a great literary read or anything, but have to give them at least 4 stars because they are so addictive and fun, character rich, and surprisingly unpredictable. Always keep one on my phone (I'm on #6 now), since they're perfect for relaxing on work breaks, while waiting for a Dr. etc appointment, or any time you just have a few minutes to turn a few pages between tasks. Although, feel free to devour one whole on a drizzly afternoon! While certainly not a prerequisite, they are all the more fun if you understand cat personalities, particularly the Siamese!
This is the "must-have" book in the "Cat Who..." series. If you enjoy the series, then you must have this book, as it transitions Qwilleran (yes, the spelling is right) from a just-keeping-himself-out-of-the-poorhouse reporter into the incredibly-wealthy-living-in-the-country man.

I'm pretty sure that all of the "Cat Who..." books after this point take place in the new location.

I've read most of the series, and I wanted to get on Kindle the books that transition him to country living. The end of this story kind of leaves it hanging, so I also picked up the next book in the series.

The mysteries, as such, are not all that involved - but the relationship between Qwill and his cats is just a joy to read.

In general, the "Cat Who..." series tend to be slightly depressing; probably because the situations remind one of real life. Even small things not related to the plot are a drag back to reality. Most people chose reading (or other forms of entertainment) to get away from real life for a while. but in the series, it's always there.
Such a cute series. I adore Koko and Yum Yum. The plots are quite fun, and are definitely improving in complexity as the series moves forward.
Qwilleran decides that he needs a change of pace, so he accepts an offer from a wealthy family friend (Aunt Fanny) to stay for the summer at her cabin in Moose County, near the tiny resort town of Pickax. He hopes to work on a book and spend some bonding time with his cats. As soon as he arrives, though, Qwill notices some odd goings on, including a strange odor in town that makes him gag, a suspiciously large number of spooky looking blue pickup trucks, and valuable items missing from his cabin. Things get more ominous when a dead rabbit is left on the cabin door, and Koko finds a cassette tape containing an odd message. Qwilleran is ready to bolt back to the city and his job at the Daily Fluxion, until Koko helps him solve a mystery. Plus, Qwill gets some news that may change his life, as well as the direction of this series.

As always, the enjoyment of this book comes from Qwill's reactions to the eccentric characters he encounters as well as his relationships to Koko and Yum-Yum. He's met his match in the odd ducks he meets in Pickax, which becomes the main setting for the remainder of the series. The book is fun but clearly serves as a transition, as Qwill moves from the Daily Fluxion to a rural setting. Thus, the mystery is a bit cursory, with a rather abrupt conclusion. Plus, the role of Koko is somewhat small here, and Yum-Yum is almost a side-note. I'd definitely "The Cat Who Played Brahms" a notch below the first four in the series, even though it provided us with the delightful Aunt Fanny and is a quick enjoyable read.
A wonderful addition to The Series where you learn how Jim Qwilleran adapts to his new wealth and his new life in Moose County and the City of Pickax. There are lots of great characters , both good and bad, and all of the antics by his Siamese Cats, Yum-Yum and Koko, makes this a truly enjoyable read. You will be transported quickly from wherever you live Down Below to life in The North Country.....where The Goodwinters have a busy hand in everything that happens. This a sit back and enjoy book ...the best kind !
I love the series, great murder/mystery books. Great read can't put them down. The cat antics are a common theme through all of these books and great characters.
Qwill his smart male cat and lovable female are a joy to read. They are old friends I love to read over and over. Sadly the author passed and they are only a little over 20 books in the series. Worth a read
This is book #5 in Lillian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who..." series. Jim Qwilleran (Qwill) goes on hiatus from his reporter job and stays in his 'Aunt' Fanny's cabin by the lake. Of course, he brings his 2 Siamese cats with him, Koko and Yum Yum. The 'locals' are secretive and very odd. While fishing on the foggy lake he hears an argument followed by a splash, then he hooks a corpse. Strange noises and voices occur at the cabin. Qwill and his cat detective, Koko are on the trail of another murder. Great fun to read!
