3 of 5 stars to The Cat Who Dropped a Bombshell, the 28th (and next to last) release in the “Cat Who” cozy mystery series, written in 2006 by Lilian Jackson Braun. For fans of the series, this one was a bit of a disappointment. The last few books took longer than usual to come out and may have had a ghost writer for parts of them, due to the author being in her 90s and starting to get ill. It’s also hard to come up with new ideas after this many books in a single series, but the characters are always fun and memorable. In this one, Pickax is turning 150 years old and the inhabitants want to celebrate their town. When an architect sees the converted apple barn Qwill now lives in, he begs to spend time there. Koko and YumYum aren’t having it, leading Qwill to suspect the architect is up to no good. Of course, there’s some murder and mystery… and Qwill provides his usual sleuthing skills to the story. Mystery was weak. Characters were good. It’s one o the less fulfilling in the series, but still worth a read for fans.
