Publisher's Summary

Back in Pickax, Jim Qwilleran expects to resume a quiet life, but the people and animals of Pickax have other ideas. A noisy cardinal wakes him every morning. Nosy neighbors drop by uninvited, and the Siamese misbehave, even sneezing on guests. As if they weren't bad enough, Qwill's long-time companion acts as though she is in love, with another man.But worst of all, Qwill finds a body in his apple orchard. When Qwill's friend becomes the chief suspect, he embarks on a crusade to clear Dennis Hough's name and win back Polly Duncan's heart. Even Koko sniffs out a few clues. But will their efforts be too little too late? Not even Koko knows for sure in the quirky, engaging romp through Moose County.

I've read about a half dozen of these "The Cat Who..." books. They are pretty consistently light and airy, enjoyable books. So I wasn't expecting anything more from an audiobook version, but the narrator did an excellent job and really enhanced the story for me, being very skilled at changing his voice/accent just a bit for each character... and he knows his Siamese cat voices, too! He made the funny parts funnier and the sad parts sadder. I will look for more narrations by George Guidall! Love him.

I live in large metropolitan area. When I want to get my thoughts away from the big city (or Down Below as it is called in the books), these stories work as a "mini" vacation for me.

The stories are moderately paced and light. There are recurring characters along with characters unique to each story. I find the characters interesting, somewhat quirky and mostly pleasant. You will find no serial killers in Pickaxe City. Neither will you find graphic sex or violence.

In my opinion these stories are enhanced by the excellent narration of George Guidall. He uses just the right amount of distinction in character voices.

These are audio books I listen to over and over. So far I haven't tired of visiting Jim Qwilleran and his friends.
