The Cat Who Sniffed Glue
I canÛªt believe how fast I‰Ûªm blowing through these. #8 in the series was another good one, with the most interesting murder so far; involving a set of wealthy twins and a family that did not quite live up to its sterling reputation.

A lot of the now-familiar characters are on hand. Arch Riker, Hixie Rice, and Junior Goodwinter are all involved in the launch of the eagerly awaited newspaper that is replacing the Picaxe Picayune. (That publication went belly up in the last book after the owner/editor was murdered.) A contest to name the new paper came up with ‰ÛÏThe Moose County Something.‰Û Qwill decides to abandon his ill-conceived plan to write a novel and will be a contributing feature writer. This will give him the opportunity to interview some of Moose County's more colorful characters and gets him back into the career that he has missed since moving from Down Below.

On the romantic front, Qwill has already screwed up his relationship with Polly by getting a little too friendly with Francesca Brodie. She is helping him redecorate his bachelor pad, and is also involved in the local theater group he has recently joined. In a surprise move, Arch Riker proposes to Amanda Goodwinter, Francesca‰Ûªs cranky boss.

The cats were mentioned frequently but Koko‰Ûªs role in solving the crime didn‰Ûªt become obvious until the very end, which involved a neat surprise.

What an absolute delight to spend reading time with favorite characters Jim Qwilleran with Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum. Regardless of what Jim Qwilleran is describing - daily habits with Koko and Yum Yum and his dining adventures with various female friends and acquaintances, he can make the ordinary become extraordinary. As Jim is back on the trail for a good story to meet new deadlines, this one definitely becomes one of my favorites of the series.

One hurries to enjoy the adventures and how murder and mayhem play a part but the story is always over too soon. Thankfully, there are many more in the series to read and savor. ( )

Jim Qwilleran and his two Siamese cats solve a double murder in the formerly peaceful town of Pickax where Jim has retired to spend his inheritance. It's a fun read. ( )

It is nearing FDR's second term in the White House. Rumours are circulating about whether he will run for a third term. Hitler is on the move and heading for Paris. There are tensions in the air.

During a state dinner, Senator Gibson is found dead in the East Room. Known as being irresistible to women, even though he is married and his wife claims they are both in love with each other, more rumours fly about his infidelities and the idea of jealous husband and spurned lovers are looked at as suspects. The home front now has its own tensions.

Eleanor Roosevelt finds herself drawn into solving another mystery. What she uncovers about the victim and those who are involved with him is more shocking that she originally thought. Sex, secrets, corruption are just hints of what Senator Gibson has been involved in. It is the others who are part of the escapades that are the real shockers.

Another enjoyable read that can also be a short read. I read it within 24 hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )
