My first disappointment was on arrival of the book from the Postman. A little "light" in weight I thought for a hardback compared to others I had bought? We are treated to only 182 pages of large type face for this offering, which is a little light on plot as well! I am still trying to work out where Ms Braun was going to go with the Wild Turkeys.......?
To me it appeared as though this offering might still have been a working draft, which required to be fleshed out to add more chapters on the actual plot and round out the characters being introduced to give the book its usual character and an enjoyable storyline. I wonder ... is this to be the very last book of the series ..?
However, for fans of the series, there are some lovely paragraphs on the antics of Koko and of Yum Yum and her silver thimble. Some of the interaction between Qwill and his cats which I personally felt had been missing in later books in the series was back in this one, it's just a pity that the detection and storyline was not up to the usual standard.
Oh yeah, and a dead body is found on Qwill's property.
You'll notice the emphasis I gave on the happenings in the area versus the murder. I'm just following the emphasis on the book. Very little time is spent on the mystery and Koko's strange behavior. And the mystery resolves itself without any real detective work.
Having said that, if you like the characters you will still enjoy visiting with them. And the book is short enough that you won't waste much time reading it.
However, I can only recommend this for die hard fans who need their Moose County fix.
