From time to time I enjoy taking a literary trip to the world of Jim Quilleran. That world is an unlikely place. It's a small town, several hundred miles from the nearest urban center. The crime rate is low, traffic gridlock doesn't exist, there are good restaurants, an active community theater, a resident millionaire who prefers to share his fortune with the community and two ageless Siamese cats, one of whom may have psychic powers.
Narrator George Guidall does a superb job. I love the tone of his voice, his diction is excellent, and he seems to hit just the right note with character voices.
I listen to these books when I want to relax. I often select them when I want to listen to a book while falling asleep. When I was a child (many years ago), I loved being "read to sleep" and had favorite stories for that purpose. The "Cat Who" books are my adult version of those favorites.
For me this is one of the better books in the series. There are several good mysteries going on, and the introduction of a likeable new character who appears in later books.
The cats play a significant role in the story. If you dislike cats, you may find "Koko" and "Yum Yum" irritating. If you prefer very "realistic" stories, you may find the entire book annoying.
However, if you want to relaxing listen that takes place in an idealistic rural setting, this book is a good choice.

this is just another great Cat Who book that keeps you guessing through the entire story.

Story far-fetched but fun. Well read, great characterisation. Poor production: big sections transposed. Nevertheless, enjoyable.
As a fan of L.J.B. and the gang I enjoy every moment. Koko with help from Qwill solve yet another crime riddled tail, this one concerning the family whose ancestors owned Qwill's apple barn home.
