Title: The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts

Author: Lilian Jackson Braun

Genre: Mystery, Cozy Mystery

 

Book Blurb:

When Mrs. Cobb heard unearthly noises in the antique-filled farmhouse, she called Jim Qwilleran for help. But he was too late. It looked as if his kindly ex-housekeeper had been frightened to death–but by whom? Or what? Now Qwilleran’s moved into the historic farmhouse with his two cat companions–and Koko the Siamese is spooked. Is it a figment of feline imagination–or the clue to a murder in Moose County? And does Qwilleran have a ghost of a chance of solving this haunting mystery?

 

My Review:

One of my favorite mysteries of all time!

 

A well-written mystery filled with funny antics of Jim Qwilleran and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum.  A good friend of Jim’s is hearing noises and calls on Jim for help one late night.  By the time Jim arrives, she is lying dead and appears to have been scared to death.  Jim decides to move into her place and figure out what happened.  A really great mystery and one that had me in stitches.  I highly recommend this mystery and the whole series, in fact.

 

I received this book as a Christmas gift years ago.

 

My Rating: 5 stars

Author Biography:

Lilian Jackson Braun (June 20, 1913 – June 4, 2011) was an American writer, well known for her light-hearted series of “The Cat Who…” mystery novels. The “Cat Who” books center on the life of former newspaper reporter, James Qwilleran, and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, in the fictitious small town of Pickax located in Moose County “400 miles north of everywhere.” Although never formally stated in her books, the towns, counties and lifestyles described in the series are generally accepted to be modeled after Bad Axe, Michigan, where Braun resided with her husband until the mid-1980s.
