A MAN OF middle age, with a large, drooping moustache and brooding eyes, hunched over the steering wheel and gripped the rim anxiously as he maneuvered his car up a mountain road that was narrow, unpaved, and tortuous. Read the first page

I've already read 5 or 6 of Lillian Jackson Braun's other "Cat Who", books before, and have a taste and craving for them that can't be put out, because Lillian writes with such a colorful array of words, that once you get done you can't tell if you read a book or watched a movie due to all the wonderful, beautiful, and vivid pictures she paints with words. Just like the others she's written she hasn't failed to stump me with her false leads and clue's. Luckily for the characters of the book, Qwill isn't fooled as easily as I was by all the misleading clues Lillian leaves for us, because if he was, then a man would have been locked up for life for a crime he didn't commit. I also liked it because of the plot. It was wonderfully and quite attracting to anyone with an eye for murder, false clues, and a set up to frame someone else and that's just what I like. Another thing that attracts me to book after book written by Lillian is that it leaves you wanting more, Once the book ends, I wished it hadn't ended, luckily for me it's a series with 20 or more books so I still have a lot to read. Over all on a scale of 1 to 20 Id have to give it a 100 because its just that good and Id recommend it to anyone who likes murder, mystery, and misleads, but beware readers, once you read one you might find yourself, like me, addicted.
For fans of this long running series the lack of Moose County action can be a bit frustrating but it is more than off set by the whole new community of the Potato Mountains. The scenes of Qwill traveling with cats is hilarious and all too familiar to anyone who has tried to travel with pets. As always with this series the depictions of small town life are totally realistic.
The bits of Moose County life we do get are significant and hint of action to come in later books.
This is one of the best of the series, it will appeal to any fan of the 'cozy' mystery genre not just to fans of this particular series.
THE CAT WHO MOVED A MOUNTAIN finds Qwill longing for a vacation from his beloved Moose County--and at the urging of friends he elects to spend a season in the Potato Mountains. But as usual, Qwill cannot leave well enough alone: once settled in his moutain-top retreat, he finds himself drawn into a battle between developers determined to turn the Potatos into upscale retreats for the wealthy and locals equally determined to hold them at bay... and the ever-astute Koko is behaving strangely. Could an old--and some believe still unsolved--murder be the cause?
Braun frequently references ecological concerns in her work, and like THE CAT THAT CAME TO BREAKFAST, this particular title gives her plenty of opportunity to slyly satirize greed and lousy land-management. THE CAT WHO MOVED A MOUNTAIN is a particularly charming entry in "The Cat Who..." series, and both old fans and newcomers should enjoy it tremendously.
