Review: The Cat Who Went Up the Creek

The Cat Who Went Up the CreekBook Review

3 out of 5 stars for The Cat Who Went Up the Creek, the 24th book in the “Cat Who” cozy mystery series, written in 2002 by Lilian Jackson Braun. It seems every mystery series always needs to have that book where there is a treasure hunt, and they often involve searching for gold. And when you’re in the mountains of Michigan, in a cozy little town, there’s bound to be some old tale about where it’s hidden. And that’s exactly what Qwill gets himself into this time around. Unfortunately, it’s while he’s supposed to be on vacation. But his time off has always been about solving murders, so when a dead body shows up, as one expects it to in a situation like this, he must investigate. Cute story. Fun antics with the cats. Interesting new people as he’s in a town a few doors down from Pickax. Connections to people he knows. It’s a decent cozy, nothing stand-out, nothing awful. I like the series so it appeals to me. Sometimes simple and fun is good, as in this case.
