books, in which he gets involved with an assortment of interesting younger women connected to the various mysteries, were more fun than the latter ones where his love life is dominated by that staid, hyperconventional librarian.

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.

This is book #26 in "The Cat Who..." series by Lillian Jackson Braun. In this book, Pickax is having a grand opening of the new book store after the old one was burned down. Also, Polly Duncan resigns from the library. A body is discovered on Qwills property killed execution-style. Koko, Yum Yum, and Qwill are on the trail of another murder. This book seems to follow some of Mrs Brauns earlier books and I enjoyed it. These books are easy-to-read light mysteries that are appropriate for most ages.

I'm an LJB collector, so I bought this one. A previous review said she thought it was written by a very bad ghost writer, and that is not a harsh criticism!

If you're a fan, but not a collector, here's the poop from Moose County:

1. Brrr has a huge 200th anniversary celebration.

2. Qwill does another one-man show, another radio broadcast of a disaster, this time a big snowstorm of 1913. Research provided by Thornton Haggis.

3. Polly is training her library replacement and is studying the psychology of running the new bookstore.

4. Ground broke for the new bookstore. An empty pirate's chest was found. The new store will be called The Pirate's Chest.

5. Bushy, the photographer gets married.

6. The back of the book contains 2 recipes, one for Reuben sandwiches, and one for Molasses cookies.

7. Yum Yum's favorite toy is a silver thimble.

8. Never mind the murders. They're unimportant.

Some Goofy Stuff:

1. There is a murder on Qwill's property, and he is not in the least curious.

2. There is a brief conversation with Susan Exbridge about Iris Cobb, but no explanation of who she was (a main character that was murdered very early in the Cat Who series).

3. There are various discussions about marmalades, both a marmalade competition in Brrr, and a new marmalade cat for the new book store, to be named Dundee (after the English marmalade). No connection to a plot or a sub-plot.

4. Former investigator Simmons comes from California to be a surprise guest at the wedding. His investigative skills are not used his presence in the book is not even a red herring. Just odd.

5. There is a forced plane landing with the bookstore architect on it. He finds the experience "interesting." Also not a red herring, just odd.

6. There are plenty goofy examples.

I hope this saves some people the price of this book. But I love the population of Moose County and wouldn't mind if this series gave up the murder investigations altogether and just captured the townspeople in the fabric of their lives.

The Cat Who series is one of my favorites and this book is one of the best. The lead character, Jim Qwilleran, is a down-home hunk. Rich but not pretentious. Smart but humble. Generous to a fault. No one can resist the antics of Koko and YumYum, Qwilleran's Siamese cats. The characters in Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere, are rich in diversity. Historical tales fascinate. A great escape to the community where we all want to live.

I have wanted to write for a long time that Ms. Jackson-Braun, or whoever is now ghostwriting for her, or her editor, should realize that Polly Duncan would make a far more interesting murder victim than Qwilleran paramour. That comment could apply to almost all the mysteries set in Moose County, not just this latest. Polly is tedious, boring, annoying, predictable, rigid and humorless; her jealousy isn't interesting, it just cramps Qwill's style. I am sick to death of her diet hangups, her endless tuna fish sandwich lunches and every other part of her. The earlier Cat Who.. books, in which he gets involved with an assortment of interesting younger women connected to the various mysteries, were more fun than the latter ones where his love life is dominated by that staid, hyperconventional librarian. (Since I am writing about a fictional character, not a real life human being, I don't feel evil in stating that I was sorely disappointed that Polly's heart attack of a few books ago didn't kill her.) A mystery surrounding her fervantly-yearned-for murder could combine Qwill, wracked by grief, confronting his old alcohol demons, perhaps unearthing a secret double life Polly leads, perhaps a new love interest working with or against him as he struggles to find out who bumped off his lady love. It would make a far more interesting mystery than The Cat Who Talked Turkey turned out to be. But I digress....

As a mystery, the Cat Who Talked Turkey is a very frustrating experience. I am still not clear WHY the stiff found on Qwill's property, or the other stiff in Northern Michigan were killed, although it was pretty obvious from the onset who-dun-it. A clear motive would have helped. I will probably continue to buy this series because I am fond of the whole Moose County scene,but I wish ... if Ms. Jackson-Braun is still really writing these, the publisher would hire a good ghostwriter and put her out to pasture. If the publisher is now using a ghostwriter to keep this lucrative series alive, surely it could find a better one! I mean, seriously, with all the hungry and TALENTED writers out there, surely the publisher could find just ONE willing to prostitute her talents to take over this rather lovable series.

I agree with several other reviewers, wondering if this isn't a ghostwriter at work. Many portions have been lifted from other "cat who" books and the style is definitely different. If I had not read all of Mrs. Braun's other books in the series, I would probably not have looked for more after this one. While revisiting "Qwill," the cats, their apple-barn home, and neighboring towns is still fun, I would never have fallen in love with all that from reading this book. I recommend it only to those of us craving the additional "cat who" experience, but not for its original warmth and flair.

I just love Qwill, Koko and Yum yum! So much fun, really enjoyed this Cat Who book. Anxious to read another. Highly recommended????
