Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.
The Cat Who Tailed a Thief (Cat Who #19)
by Lilian Jackson Braun
Source: Bought used book
First published: 1997
First words: It was a strange winter in Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere.
Slow start, but what a finish! I did not expect(show spoiler)
It was so predictable and obvious who the villains were since they were the new people.(show spoiler)
Everything was pointing to them. Also, it's kind of a trend in these books.
The Ice Festival being canceled due to warm weather was funny. Hixie Rice is always coming up with these ideas, but they usually end up failing somehow.
Qwill wrote a column about the naming of pet cats. Somehow this convinces Polly to change her cat's name from Bootsie to Brutus, because Brutus is a more dignified name. Qwill was always against the name Bootsie and made such a big fuss about it. Looks like he got his way after all. :/
I was glad to see more of the weatherman, Wetherby Goode, who likes to use literary quotes in his forecast. He's always mentioned in the other books, but this time you actually meet him and get to learn more about his character. In this book, he's Qwill's next door neighbor when Qwill moves into a condo.
I got mixed up a few times on some of the new side characters, not the obvious baddies but new citizens of Moose County that Qwill interviews. Not a big deal, but it confused me a little bit. Like, who was this person again?
RATING: 3 out of 5
