she obviously has not read the "Cat Who..." series...I have read 18 of the series and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone single one of them. Koko & Yum Yum are an intricate part of each story and while the series is not completely about cats, they do play a major role in the life of the story! Anyone who is a cat lover can relate and appreciate their antics in this wonderful series! I would HIGHLY recommend to Mistress of Furry to start from the beginning because, as you can see from the other reviews, she stands alone in her opinion!

Jim Qwilleran, millionaire bachelor and resident of Moose county (400 miles north of everywhere) has dashed back home to protect his lady friend, Polly the liberian, from a stalker. Qwill is convinced that she is being targeted to be used as a way to blackmail him. When he finds that a tour of the Scottish Highlands (insipired by the local production of MacBeth) is being organized and that Polly is planning to go he decides to go along. Tragedy strikes the tour, a member dies of natural causes or were they so natural? Qwill and Polly return home where he, aided as always by his Siamese cats, Koko and YumYum uncover the true motives and culprits to, of course, save the day.
The mystery is, as always is the case in this series, secondary to the 'cozy' element of Moose County background but in this book is a bit more complex. We are treated to visits by many of the Moose County crowd including a return by Dr. Melinda Goodwinter, Qwill's first lady friend in Moose County (The Cat Who Played Brahms).

When I picked this novel up from my local library, I was VERY disappointed to see that underneath the cute pawprints on the cover and the "Cat Who" part of the title, and the reviews calling this series 'great for cat lovers!' that this book (and the whole series, in general) isn't about cats at all. It's about a Bill Gates-level rich man and his lovers and their big Scottish adventure. Big whoop-de-do. And half the time I forgot there were even supposed to BE cats in this book, since they rarely appeared. The cats are simply there as background pets, and sure, Koko knocks a few books off a shelf here and there to coveniently help solve a mystery but doesn't do much else. A book about cats would be about just that - cats and NOT humans. And the fact that this book pretends to be about these small furry mammals, when it isn't, is just disgusting in my eyes. Only Braun's short story collection, "The Cat Who Had 14 Tales", actually contains some material that is truely about cats and not humans. Cat lovers, don't waste your time with this series, especially since there are so many mystery series (such as Shirley Rosseau's beautifully written Joe Grey Mysteries) out there that ARE about cats.

This is one of my favorite "Cat Who" mysteries. The descriptions of Scotland and its landscape make this one worth it. Koko and Yum Yum work well together. This is one of Braun's best for showing feelings. When Yum Yum was catnapped, I felt a lot of the same feelings that Qwill probably felt. It might be better, however, if Yum Yum were allowed to help Qwill and Koko solve the mystery, instead of being a cute little female.
