As I've read this series I've discovered that all the books in the series is a lot a like. I know it's a series and the characters are all suppose to be there and you know them very well but the plots of the books are pretty much the same. There's a murder, Koko suspects something is not right, Qwill investigates, he figures the mystery out, and then gives a detailed description of what happened in the book and how it ties into everything that has just happened. Their all pretty much the same. As I've read the books they have gotten more boringly predictable but still slightly enjoyable to read. ( )

I can't help it. I love these books. They are so calm and laid back. Love the Q mustache. Great characters that you think you know personally. ( )

Qwill is a newspaper reporter and the richest man in Moose County. While his friend Polly is on vacation Qwill decides to move himself and his two cats into the Nutcracker Inn where Lori Bamab, one of the innkeepers has been having bad vibes. The body of one of the hotel guests is found floating in the river. My problem with this entry in the series is that unlike the earlier books Qwill doesn't do any real investigating and Koko, the detective cat, doesn't turn up any clues of value. Most of the book is Qwill interviewing people for his column and descriptions of food Qwill is eating. Definitely not a good entry in the series. ( )

I enjoyed this one for it's setting near a nature conservancy and references to Gilbert and Sullivan. Pretty interesting cast of characters, as well. Easy listening in the car! ( )

Book description
Jim Qwillerian is enjoying his stay at the Nutcracker Inn in Black Creek. His two Siamese, Koko and YumYum, don't seem quite as pleased with the accommodations ... though Koko does enjoy keeping a keen eye on the squirrels and other local wildlife.

Then, while Koko's eagerly watching some jumping trout, he spots something else: a body, floating downstream. When it revealed that the victim was a guest at the inn - and had nuggets of some gold hidden in his shoes - Qwill dives into the case.

And if eh and the cats don't solve it soon, they're going to be up the creek without a paddle...
