Author: Lilian Jackson Braun
Narrator: George Guidall
Rating (Story): ★★★☆☆
Rating (Narration):★★★★☆

Like Tom Clancy, Lilian Jackson Braun is an author I rely on to basically write the same book over and over. It’s like comfort food for the brain 🙂 And as such, it made for nice easy listening. This was an adorable, cozy mystery. The plot is fairly simple and it lacked the Agatha Christie sense of challenging you to solve the crime. Instead you sit back and join our main character as the mystery unfolds, often helped along by his cat, Koko.

The narration reminded me of those old-sounding, strangely formal science lectures from the 80’s that you can find on youtube. It took some getting used to! But after I got the hang of it, this was actually very easy listening. In fact, I got through this book without ever having to rewind because I missed something the narrator said. I also enjoyed that the tracks were short and the book itself wasn’t too long either. Both the narration and the story were enjoyable enough, that I started the first book in the series as soon as I finished this one.
