1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By E. Tidwell on Sept. 26 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have purchased every Cat Who book, plus the Cat Who Companion, and Short and Tall Tales. I pre-order each one, and I continually read them in sequence. By the time the new one comes out, I have gone back and read every one of them again and champ at the bit for the new one. I am a cyber resident of Moose County! Now I enjoy a thriller as much as the next reader; I enjoy adventure and science fiction, but no other series of books has ever completely captured my heart like this wonderful Quillerain Community! I hope Lillian Jackson Braun lives to be 150 years old and writes at least a Cat Who book every year!

Although not a great work of literature, these books are a light, easy read which are bound to entertain any animal lover. The animals play a central role in all the charachters lives. I love to read these series just before I go to sleep!

The first body doesn't appear until about half way through the book. The first half of the book catches fans up on the latest in Moose County. Suspicious fires have been plaguing the beloved shafthouses, those tourist attracting relics of Moose County's mining past. Qwill and Koko begin to unravel that little problem but are sidetracked by the death of an old friend. More suspicious destruction sets them back on the trail, the bodies (finally) begin to appear. Of course Qwill and Koko prevail with the added triumphs of discovering the motives of the abherent behavior of a long time Moose County resident and shooing away yet another rival for Polly's affections.
This is a long running series of cozies. If you are already familiar with Moose County, its resident mystery solving cat and his millionaire companion you'll LOVE this book. If not you probably want to look elsewhere. If you are new to the series this is not where you want to start. If you are looking for a very challenging mystery you probably won't be happy with the series at all.

... because she's turned a 50ish man into a little old lady of 87. I know some 50ish men. They would not be seen dead in "jumpsuits" or "leisure suits". They do not spend their time as Q does: eating, drinking coffee, judging children's art contests, redecorating their homes. When they get together with friends it is not to view a new sofa or read aloud a new restaurant's menus, as Q does. (Honestly!) They do not live in woodsy/watery resort areas and then eschew all outdoor activities and virtually any exercise whatsoever. When duties require their presence at some location a whopping 30 miles from home, they do not pack up and move house. I snort my way through these paperbacks (free from the little-old-lady next door) and rejoice that my boyfriend is, in fact, a "well-built 50ish man" and *not* Qwill.

This was good enough to read during one prolonged session in the bathtub. Oops! That says more about me than it does about the book. I have been enchanted with all the "Cat Who..." books that I've read, as they are reliably wholesome and fun. I don't know why I passed Lilian Jackson Braun's books by for so long, but I am trying to make up for lost time by savoring another one each week. Braun's clever protagonist, James Qwilleran, embodies the fantasy of inheriting billions, yet staying grounded enough to continue a newspaper career and enjoy small town life. Although Qwill doesn't travel far, his escapades read like a gastronomic travelogue. "The Cat Who Smelled a Rat" isn't a great classical work, but I have to give it the highest rating because it meets my 5-star criteria of "I wish I'd written that".
