3+ out of 5 stars for The Cat Who Came to Breakfast, the 16th cozy mystery book in the “Cat Who” series, written in 1994 by Lilian Jackson Braun. Qwill and the cats head off the Breakfast Island for a little relaxation jaunt; however, the island is known by so many different names, everyone keeps steering him to different parts. Last count, it had 4 names and Qwill couldn’t figure out what was going on… that is, until a boat blew up and created a little mischief. Qwill’s mustache tingles, and the cats are behaving weirdly, so something is amiss. While this was a good book in the series, there wasn’t anything overly memorable about it. It also took him away from Pickax and the townspeople we know and love, so it’s a little different style. I appreciate when the author moves to a different locale in a series every now and again, to give the reader something different. But with this series, perhaps because it has 30 books, I feel like we jump around too often. All in all, the mystery is good, but leaves you feeling like it was a one-off story disconnected from the norm. It was around now when I thought to myself… “good series, but 15 should be the max!”
