Publisher's Summary

Pickax loves a big occasion. The Great Food Expo is about to begin, introducing new restaurants, country inns, food specialty shops and a new food page in the "Moose County Something." Lurking in the background is a killer determined to make this an event Pickax City will never forget.

The Expo begins with a literal bang: a bomb wrecks the hotel, killing a housekeeper and causing extensive damage. Luckily for Pickax, Qwill is on the scene, his moustache twitching with suspicions that this bomb was intended as something stronger than a warning to someone. His evidence: Koko and Yum Yum's new interest in cheese, especially Gruyere, Brie and Feta. Qwill and the Siamese are on a case that will demand all their feline intuition and mustachioed insight!

    "Delight light"
    If you could sum up The Cat Who Said Cheese in three words, what would they be?

    Simple pleasure here


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Braun's books are not for the heavy handed listener but are delightful like candy for your brain. The charters are believable and the cats endearing. George Guidall all ways gives a good read.

    "Irresistibly Implausible"

    Fun, lighthearted mystery novel. Not for those seeking grit, but great literary escapism. While there's a high body count, descriptions of violence are kept minimum. (Heads up, possible spoiler: while mostly easy listening, this novel does contain some descriptions of spousal abuse.) This is among the stronger Cat Who titles, and Guidall's narration is fantastic.

    "Boring, Boring, Boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Lots of editing


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lilian Jackson Braun again?

    Yes, but not because of this book. The very worst of his that I have listened to.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Great reader


    What character would you cut from Cat Who Said Cheese?

    wouldn't cut characters. Would cut the endless details about cheese and pastys


    Any additional comments?

    Listened to this book on a road trip. We kept waiting for it to get better, it never did. It has a decent plot, but is full of really boring details about things that have nothing to do with the story. An example is listing 22 cheeses by name and characteristic that have nothing to do with the

    "George has a voice like melted chocolate."

    The narrator brings something special to the Cat Who stories. They're charming who done its, with cat lovers especially catered for.

    What can I find wrong with this audible book... Nothing at all.
    What can I find right with this book... Everything.
    I know that when I pick up a " The Cat Who..." book I'm in for a very good read / listen. Qwill as always stands up for those who can't do so for them selves. 😺😺😉

    "An acquired taste"

    I found this series of books by accident. I love George Guidall's voice and have listened to a few of the stories more than once because of this. This story is similar to others in the series. Its gentle, familiar and easy.
