Lilian Jackson Braun ☆ The Cat Who Went Bananas kindle

The Cat Who Went BananasBook will finds himself distracted from the events by his finicky pal Koko who's been acting fishy tha This is an enchanting story wonderful characters and a lovely little town but the mystery kind of got lost Although I thoroughly enjoyed all the story of the town growing and rebuilding I missed the actual mystery being solved In the end it kind of left me hangingDidn't realize I had just read this a year ago but I thought it seemed uite familiar as I read it again Enjoyed it perhaps a bit this time because I do love the characters and the town I again felt the mystery is a bit lost nor do the cats get uite as much attention as they do in some of the other books in the series
