Just when you thought things couldn't get any kookier with this series, Qwill up and moves to the Potato Mountains. He needs some time away from everyone and everything in Pickax, to that he can decide his future. I still cherish the day I was going through a dusty box of books at my local charity store, and picked up three or four of Lillian Jackson Braun's wonderful books. I was instantly drawn to the idea of a crime solving cat, and decided to give them a go.

by Lilian Jackson Braun. Dedicated to Earl Bettinger, the husband who. Unaccustomed to mountain driving, he found it a bloodcurdling ordeal. On one side of the road the mountain rose in a solid wall of craggy rock; on the other side it dropped off sharply without benefit of guardrail, and it was narrowed further by fallen rocks at the base of the cliff. The driver kept to the middle of the road and clenched his teeth at each hairpin turn, pondering his options if another vehicle were to come hurtling downhill around a blind curve.

Braun Lilian Jackson. Experiencing slight qualms, Qwilleran replaced the book on the shelf. It was an unfortunate choice of title. Lilian Jackson Braun The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare 1 In Moose County, four hundred miles north of everywhere, it always starts to snow in November, and it snows - and snows - and snows. First, all the front steps disappear under two feet of snow. Then fences and shrubs are no longer visible. Utility poles keep getting shorter until the lines are low enough for limbo dancing. There's a low-pressure front moving down from Canada, but I think we're safe for a while," Junior said.

The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels

The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels. Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern, and The Cat Who Turned On and Off. In 1966, the New York Times labeled Braun, the new detective of the year. It wasn’t until 1986 that Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties.

I just finished with a book called the Cat Who Moved a Mountain and it just swept me off my feet. It involves the lovable Yum Yum, the Siamese cat who lives to be loved and loves exreporter Jim Qwilleren. Qwilleren is an exreporter who used to work in the crime department of a newspaper and hasn't lost his love for crime. The proprietor told me that I should try one of the cat books.

Also by Lilian Jackson Braun. The cat who could read backwards. The cat who ate danish modern. While driving to Lockmaster, he reminisced about Winston, the dust-colored longhair with plumed tail who did the dusting in the late Eddington Smith’s dusty old bookshop. Customers went into the shop to say hello to Winston and always bought a pre-owned book for a couple of dollars. Most, if not all, of Qwilleran’s books came from Edd’s shop before arson reduced it to ashes. Winston had escaped and taken shelter in the weed-covered vacant lot that would now be a park bearing his name.

A murder in the mountains has Jim Qwilleran and his cats Koko and Yum Yum feeling on edge in this mystery in the bestselling Cat Who series.Qwill’s on top of the world when he rents a house on Big Potato Mountain. The owner, J.J. Hawkinfield, brought real estate development to the once-peaceful Potatoes. But Hawkinfield paid a steep price for his enterprise: He was pushed off a cliff by an angry mountain dweller. Qwilleran, however, suspects the man is innocent—and Koko’s antics have him convinced something’s wrong. He may be making a mountain out of a molehill...but he’s determined to find the truth. Even if it means jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire!

Okay, this author kind of sucks at mystery, and her characters are obvious and flat, and everything is really dated, and small town stuff is both romanticized and oversimplified, but she's also created this lovely and sort of silly world that a reader can take a little mental vacation into, so it's great. The stories have continuity and not too many sloppy mistakes. If you are looking for erudite literature, this ain't it. If you're looking for period fun, here it is!

In this installment Quill decides to take a vacation to contemplate his future. He chooses the Potato mountains and rents at the very top of big Potato which is being developed at an alarming pace. The locals are mourning the incarceration of one of their own for murder. The victim emerges as a corrupt businessman everyone hated. Quill investigates with the help of the cats and it soon emerges that the "murderer" had been railroaded. Quill is determined to right this wrong. There's plenty of action and some hair-raising scenes that you're sure to enjoy. This is a most enjoyable mystery!

I love this series, but this particular book was quite dark and somber in nature. Qwill leaves town, so our favorite characters are missing. He runs into one disaster after another, including rain, which is depressing. Even yum yum suffers from anxiety. I kept reading because I wouldn't want to miss anything, but I certainly won't read it again.

I love all The Cat Who books. I miss Lilian Jackson Braun so much. RIP. I wish someone would finish her last book she was writing. I wish someone would write some more books of Qwill, KoKo and YumYum. They wouldn't be as good but at least the stories could continue.

What a fun read! Nice to read a book with good English and full of thoughts and ideas by the main characters. Same for all "The cat Who" books I have read.

I haven’t read the book—it’s a gift for someone who is making her way through the whole series—but I was disappointed that the cover was bent. If it were for me, it wouldn’t matter, but I hate to give a damaged book as a present!

This is probably my favorite The Cat Who... book. Not sure why, but I loved it.
As always, Lilian Jackson Braun delivers. Love, Love, LOVE this series - one of my all-time favorite. In fact, although I've read through the entire series years ago, I decided to revisit Qwill and all the cast of characters all over again; I'm reading the series all over again. Only this time, on my Kindle. Fun reading!
