      Book Review4 of 5 stars to The Cat Who Wasn't There, the 14th book in the "Cat Who" cozy mystery series, written in 1992 by Lilian Jackson Braun. This might be one of my favorite books in this series, as it takes the story on a new adventure. Qwill is on a trip to Scotland and the cats are left behind in Pickax. How will the solve the crime this time? Well they do thru odd behaviors with the cat sitter. More Polly in this one! And a change of scenery, with a good mystery, help make this a fun re [...]

      I'm only going to bother reviewing one of the "Cat Who" books, so just consider this a general review of the whole series, I'm just using The Cat Who Wasn't There to do it because it was the first one I read. Since high school, these books have been my cheesy, fun, light-reading (yet with enough classical references to actually keep me occupied), something to do when I felt like reading, needed my mind occupied, but just didn't feel the energy needed to foucus on the new translation of Dante (or [...]

      I think when I finally read the last few books in this series, I will be sad. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book. They are not dirty, the language does not make you blush. There are times when you shake your head and have to wonder if people really act like this in small towns, but they are enjoyable books to read.

      First Read: 5*****The beginning of this book has Qwilleran racing back from the Potato Mountains to Pickax because he has received word that his present love, Polly Duncan was stalked by a mysterious stranger one evening when she was returning home. Qwillern immediately decides she was going to be abducted and be held for ransom. He has it in his mind that Pickax is being overrun by people from Down Under and that more of this type of crime is going to keep happening. This is true, when quiet ru [...]

      THE CAT WHO WASN 19T THERE 5*****The beginning of this book has Qwilleran racing back from the Potato Mountains to Pickax because he has received word that his present love, Polly Duncan was stalked by a mysterious stranger one evening when she was returning home. Qwillern immediately decides she was going to be abducted and be held for ransom. He has it in his mind that Pickax is being overrun by people from Down Below and that more of this type of crime is going to keep happening. This is true [...]

      This book starts exactly after the storyline in: The Cat Who Moved A Mountain. Qwilleran returns to Pickaxe when he hears about a mysterious man who was hiding around his romantic interest Polly when she came home one night. Qwill senses something is wrong and suspects that someone intends to kidnap his friend to then extort money from him. Sounds crazy, but the 'stache knows!Upon returning to Pickax ahead of schedule he meets up with friends and finds the town the same and yet changed a bit. Th [...]

    7. Kirsti says:

      I have to say, I miss the part of the book where Koko wasn't there, although he was making his presence felt. You come to depend on his Yows and Yargles signalling clues, and he is giving them, you just don't realize it.Qwill has been persuaded to look into his Scottish heritage by joining a Pickaxe tour group. While there, Irma Hasselreich dies mysteriously. The truth comes out after Koko's obsession with Melinda Goodwinter and pink pills. It was odd seeing Melinda portrayed as she was, so mone [...]

    8. Rage says:

      rereading this series has been a great experience so far. Qwilleran references a lot of things that happened in books I just read, so I feel like I actually know what's going on! it's also interesting to see where the characters go over time. the mystery in this one is pretty dark. I had a lot of suspicions about who could be responsible, and it was fun watching Qwill and Koko uncover clues together.

    9. Shannon says:

      Once again, fairly good narrator (lovely rich voice that works for Qwuill), but the story & characters are such cliches. Qwuill in particular is such a knowitall, his superior make opinions and attitude towards the women in this book (and series) drives me nuts. Mystery was decent, but I tolerate the book/series more than I enjoy it. The cat antics are the only amusing part. Still reading the audiobooks though, because I haven't found anything better that captures my attention.

    10. Amy "the book-bat" says:

      Another installment featuring Qwill and the cats. This time Qwill goes to Scotland (leaving the cats behind) and the tour leader dies. Upon returning to Moose County, Qwill does his usual investigating with Koko's help and solves the mystery. There were some interesting twists, but I figured out the biggest one pretty early on. I gave this one 3.5 stars because it seemed too easy and a bit repetitive. Maybe I just need a break from the series for a bit

    11. Angeles says:

      Who doesn't love cats who know better than their humans?

    12. Bianca says:

      I love these Cozy Cat Mysteries they are a joy to listen to on the way to work and back (makes driving bearable hahaha). This is a great read or listen for everyone!

    13. Jeanny says:

      Always enjoy "the cat who books" this was especially fine with Scottish lore in it

    14. Lisa Hall says:

      Qwill goes on a tour of Scotland, this time, leaving the cats behind. Doesn't matter. Koko still knows when mystery is afoot. He's yowling across the Atlantic at the same time their tour guide dies.When I read a series this big, (29 books), I compare the books against each other, not other stories. This wasn't one of my favorites. There was a note of sadness that ran through the entire story that normally isn't present in these books. The character Melinda Goodwinter returns, and it isn't a good [...]

    15. May Helena Plumb says:

      I haven't read any other books in the series. I wasn't expecting high literature, but I was expecting an engaging mystery, probably humorous, and I was really disappointed. Details which would help you solve the mystery are left out at the end (I felt like a grumpy Poirot when the details were revealed). The plot progressed extremely slowly, with lots of unnecessary detail, and honestly not enough pizazz. The writing is dull. The cats played a very minor role (I hoped from the bank cover that th [...]

    16. Shawnee Bowlin says:

      All I can say is that anything is possible. Koko pushes the boundaries of believable when he leaves what Qwill feels are clues to a mystery that began when the cat was nowhere in sight or within touch! If nothing else, this is a fun diversion from otherwise heavy reading.Lillian Jackson Braun is a mystery herself with her imagination. She spins a fun and wondrous tale while dipping into danger and mystery.

    17. Reba says:

      Not bad. I know I read this long ago, but could not get it on audio, so a re-read it was. Relatively fast paced, but a lot of set-up for a rushed ending and a bit of a let-down and anticlimactic. But, a comfort read is a comfort read and sometimes that's just what you need on a cold winter day. Not an awful choice for my last read of 2017.

    18. Amy Miller says:

      I LOVED this series! I’ve read them all and rate them all a 5. If you like quirky mysteries this is one you should cover. Jim Qwilleran is my kind of detective add in a couple of clever cats & what you have is involved, funny and interesting.

    19. Andrew M says:

      I listened to nearly all of these as a teenager, long before I knew how ridiculous it was that these characters would pass as realistic. Maybe this is better for cat people that talk about cats like they were children.

    20. Chris says:

      This was another of the shorter books and again I was not very fond of it. I found the reason behind what happened disappointing and a few of the characters more unpleasant than usual. Hopefully the next one will be more fun.

    21. Anna says:

      Very light but enjoyable mystery featuring two cats. A series of value when a light story and easy relaxation are needed.

    22. Elise says:

      LOVE THIS COLLECTION OF BOOKS AND KOKO AND YUMYUM !!!!!!

    23. Cindy Peters says:

      Better than "The Cat Who Sniffed Glue"

    24. Teresa says:

      These books are easy and light hearted.

    25. Alice says:

      Just what I expected from this cozy mystery series. I like dropping in on Pickax and Qwill.

    26. Elia says:

      These are all pretty fluffy, but still a lot of fun to read.

    27. Sheri says:

      Love these books! Pure escapism.

    28. Raluca says:

      As usual, excellent story-telling. Haven't been disappointed.

    29. Steven D. Shultz says:

      Enjoyed this bookI love this series. All of the stories are creative, wholesome, amusing and fun to read. Qwilleran is such a likable character.
