3 out of 5 stars to The Cat Who Saw Stars, the 21st book in the “Cat Who” cozy mystery series, written in 1998 by Lilian Jackson Braun. By this time, the series is will under way, almost writing itself. The mysteries are mostly just light and cute, revolving around different people in the town and the outsiders who visit Moose County. I’m not a huge fan of extra-terrestrial and UFO stories, as there isn’t a whole lot to do with them when it comes to characters or plot; it always ends up being the same thing. But this one is, of course, not really a UFO; there’s no chance the small town of Pickax has aliens running around. It’s just someone doing something they shouldn’t be, and when they’re caught, and a dead body turns up, there’s gotta be some funny connection, right? The story was a bit of a stretch, didn’t do a whole lot for me, but it was still a quick and enjoyable read. You can tell Braun works hard to add something different with each bookl sometimes it’s great, other times it’s just average. This was an average one. Nothing bad, just nothing thoroughly exciting. But I enjoy the books and the characters, and it makes me feel like I’m around friends and family when reading them. And that’s what counts, given why I’m reading them!
