I just added this book to my to-read list, after getting a note from the library that it wouldn't be published until 2009. Then, on the webpage of Stop, You're Killing Me!, I read the following note:
We have been informed that The Cat Who Smelled Smoke (advertised as due April 2008) is no longer scheduled for publication.
Amazon lists the audio version as published but no longer available.

guess I will never get to read the 30th book as it was cancelled by putnam, also it would be a posthumous publication as Ms. Braun passed in 2011.Here is the link to her obit.

I hope she does write this book! But it seems unlikely since we've been waiting for it for many months now.
Boy, where have I been? A 3rd "new" book? Add this to the ones I need to read....
