Read in March, 2010

Amateur feline sleuths KoKo and YumYum again help reporter Qwilleran solve the mystery. This time, the Town of Pickax is on the verge of its 150th anniversary. Polly, Qwill’s love/like interest, has moved from Head Librarian to Manager of The Pirates’ Chest, a bookstore financed largely through the K-Fund which came from Qwill’s unexpected inheritance.

A large part of Braun’s success is a reader’s enchantment with Qwill, his two cats and his community. After an architect student sketches the interior of Qwill’s apple barn home, a murder takes place at a family reunion. Qwill and his Siamese cats put together their senses to find out the who and why. The mystery plays a small part of this novel but it is fun to revisit the world created by Braun. She has a real talent for writing pleasant, not to deep books, that keep a readers interest, and as the characters develop, we appreciate each new book.
