Much like its protagonist, this story ambles along, leisurely highlighting the nooks and crannies of the small town and its characters. But the narrative also never loses sight of its main mystery ... Read full review

Another adorable story in the tried and true Lilian Jackson Braun formula. It's not particularly weighty reading, but it was just the perfect thing to pass the time while I waited out a snowstorm. One Warning: If you are a serious cardinal lover, you might want to pick something else. Read full review

About the author (1992)

The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels. Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern, and The Cat Who Turned On and Off.  In 1966, the New York Times labeled Braun, “the new detective of the year.” Then, for reasons unknown, the rising mystery author disappeared from the publishing scene. It wasn’t until 1986 that Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties. Since then, G.P. Putnam’s Sons has published seventeen additional novels in the Cat Who series. Braun passed away in 2011.
