Picked this ex-library book up at the Book Thing.

From the cover -
The residents of Pickax eagerly await the start of Pickax Now, a festival celebrating the 150th anniversary of the town''s founding. In the midst of preparations for parades and performances, newspaper columnist James Qwilleran must make time to entertain Harvey Ledfield, an aspiring architect visiting from out of town.
Qwill welcomes Harvey into his home to sketch, but strange occurrences seem to follow Harvey around. Why, for example, did the extraordinary Siamese Koko leap from the balcony onto Harvey''s head while he was drawing Qwill''s barn? And why have Harvey''s aunt and uncle - residents of nearby Purple Point - not been seen in public since Harvey''s arrival?
Soon, Koko''s strange behavior is not the only sign of trouble in Pickax. A knitter with psychic powers predicts murder, and a woman makes a weekend trip to Pickax from California to leave a message for Qwill. It''s up to Koko to help Qwill piece the clues together.
In the twenty-eighth Cat Who mystery, Lilian Jackson Braun welcomes readers back into the world of Qwill, Koko, and Yum Yum.

Its been several years since I've read any of these Cat Who mysteries. I enjoyed visiting with Qwill and his Siamese friends again, but I must admit, there wasn't much to this mystery. It was a very charming and gentle read, but not much of a mystery plot. A couple of deaths, a bit of a scam, and an elderly couple who might be in hiding; still an enjoyable and quick read.

This is reserved for my Cat Stories bookbox.

"Don't ever apologize to an author for buying something in paperback, or taking it out from a library (that's what they're there for. Use your library). Don't apologize to this author for buying books second hand, or getting them from bookcrossing or borrowing a friend's copy. What's important to me is that people read the books and enjoy them, and that, at some point in there, the book was bought by someone. And that people who like things, tell other people. The most important thing is that people read... "
