The Cat Who Dropped A Bombshell by Lilian Jackson Braun

The Cat Who Dropped A Bombshell #28 by Lilian Jackson Braun

This latest offering of Qwill, Koko and Yum Yum and all their friends of Pickax are back in another charming tale. The residents are eagerly awaiting Pickax Now, a festival with parades and exhibits celebrating 150 years. Qwill brings archtect Harvey Ledfield into his home to sketch his huge apple barn and when strange things start happening with Harvey around, especially when Koko lands on top of Harvey's head, which Koko had never done before. Harvey's aunt and uncle have not been seen since Harvey's arrival. A woman from California, apparantly in Pickax to bid on a kitty at the kitty auction, leaves a mysterious note for Qwill before leaving. A sudden hurricane causes Qwill and the cats to move back to The Village to weather the storm and Koko sends out her ever-ready YOWL, which means a murder is or is about to occur nearby or not so nearby. This volume has a postscript at the end of the story, not to be missed. I highly recommend this volume, it is a charmer. I enjoy Qwill's limericks and the stories about the townsfolk and the mouth-watering food mentioned in each volume. I highly recommend the two Cat Who Cookbooks to go along with all the books.
