Okay, but not wild about Koko, or Qwilleran and his psychic mustache, to be honest. That's okay, it was fun and entertaining. ( )

Former crime reporter Jim Qwilleran is ready to get off the art beat, though he doesn't expect to move on to interior design. But the work isn't boring, when the first subject of the newspaper's new interior design magazine is burglarized, and there's even a death involved. And it won't be the last death in the interior design world.

The first full adventure of Koko and Qwill has a lot of charm, as Qwill takes to cat ownership with aplomb. Koko's antics lead Qwill to question whether the cat is somehow psychic or it's all just a big coincidence. The interactions between man and cat are always my favorite thing about the books in this series. And now we have Yum Yum to add to the fun in future books.

The mystery itself was better done than the first book, in my opinion. I was more interested in it and felt I had a chance of solving it. I didn't, not really, but there was at least one crime I had pretty much figured out correctly.

In my review for the first book, I mentioned the male chauvinism, which is still present in this book, but not as heartily. Unless you count Odd Bunsen, a married father of six, who makes somewhat suggestive comments about other women all throughout this book. But hey, at least he only talks about looking, and nothing more...a distinction I'm sure his wife would appreciate.

Overall, it was a fun read, and I would recommend this book for fans of the classic whodunit & cozy mystery genres. ( )

I needed something to read that was a classic cozy mystery, so what better than The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern, published in 1967? There is a simplicity to the novel's era that defies words. The books tended to be more episodic; you could read the second book in a series without having to remember everything that happened in the first book. The part that wasn't simple was the solution to the mystery. While the author played fair, I didn't put all the clues together before Qwill.

This mystery involved jade, one of my favorite stones. Our intrepid reporter is assigned to cover the world of interior decorating in the local area. Of course, murder happens, and it is up to Qwill to solve it. I was fascinated by the storyline while being amused at the various names of colors used for decorating.

If you enjoy mysteries, this is a fun one. ( )

I'm re-reading the series in order. I read them out of order the first time and enjoyed them, but would like to see how it grows. They are quick reads, and I enjoyed this one in eBook format. ( )

Cute mystery featuring a reporter with a cat who helps him solve murders and other crimes. In this case, valuable jades are stolen after the reporter’s newspaper features the collection in an article. Later, an interior designer who helped select the household with jades for the reporter turns up dead.

Easy read. Light. It has a crime-solving cat. ( )
