Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Green Vase antiques shop, tucked into San Francisco's financial district, is inhabited by two upstairs resident cats and one young female human. She's inherited the shop from her uncle and has discovered that real treasure and history can be found anywhere in the building if she listens to her cats. This third madcap cozy (after Nine Lives Last Forever) whimsically combines Gold Rush history with a contemporary bicycle race, the Tour of California, as our heroine and her two cats head out on a treasure hunt that was surely orchestrated by her late uncle. She has lots of company in this light first-person narrative, including a deadly duo seeking fortune and revenge. VERDICT With its clever structure and endearing protagonists, this is a delightful series. Hale's characters are charming, and the layered story lines ensure our interest in the next installment. For all cat detective readers, plus California-bound folks who crave local color. Penny Warner's Connor Westphal series would complement.

    Best Cozy of 2011 so far!!!!

    Rupert is still sniffing out tightly wrapped packages hidden by Rebecca's late Uncle Oscar. Most times the package contains money wadded up which he seems to find right when Rebecca needs it. But this time Rupert uncovers a package that contains a little bear holding a flag. This has to be a clue to one of her uncle's hidden valuable treasures.

    The first clue sends Rebecca to Nevada City, a former mining town. Her neighbor Monty is headed there to represent the San Francisco Mayor at a bike race, The Tour of California. So they pack up the cats and head off together each on their own mission.

    Rebecca starts to believe her little excursion may be putting herself right in the path of her uncle's oldest enemy. Can she stay safe and follow the clues to uncover the treasure or is she endangering both herself and her cats with this road trip?


    I loved this book so much. First of all with a title like HOW TO MOON A CAT you can't wait to delve into these pages. The author has her hands full writing for the human characters and two very vocal cats, one extremely opinionated, the other more laid back and relaxed. Then in this book she adds the moon as a character, a very important character and that leads to only one way of How To Moon A Cat.


    This story also takes us on a history lesson about California Bear Flag Revolt . This flag is very essential to the plot. We also meet some colorful characters, clever impostors, and willing tricksters as Rebecca finds the clues she needs. Oh and maybe a couple of frogs.


    This story has so many layers. It was laugh out loud funny in places, but my husband says I giggled through most of the book. The author has grown so much and is perfecting her writing craft. I have watched her evolve with each story. This plot while multifaceted is very tight. Her characters are all growing and developing as well. Her writing in places is almost poetry and her descriptions make people and places jump off the page, even a few we would like contained within the pages.J

    I do believe this is my favorite cozy so far in 2011. I gave it my highest rating which equals 5 stars but it is definitely a 10!!! I highly recommend this book and the entire series!!! This book could not have been more purr-fect!!! A purr delight to read!!!

    CAT TALE, Fairy tale and history lesson

    Our heroine enters a mixed up world where the moon becomes a character, hairless white mice save the day and frogs ride tricycles. At one point old bricks talk to each other and only the reader can hear them. This story flutuates between longwinded California history lesson and fairytale leaving by the wayside much of what makes a lghthearted mystery mysterious. However,since I love history, fairytales, cats and heroines with brown hair and glasses, who, by the way are not searching for their true love of either sex, I enjoyed this book and look foward to the next in the series. Laughter is absolutely evoked several times during the reading of this nonserious tail!

    Not as good as the first two but...

    I loved the first two in the series. This one was long on prose and short on a story that was a little confusing. All in all, its a good cozy for those of us who love cats. Maybe the next book will have more of a story and not feel like such a weird history lesson. If i wanted to know this much about California history in detail, I would buy a book about it. Its like she had a deadline to meet and used history as a filler. Boring and uninteresting history at that. But if you can stomach all the lame blather, there are some good spots. Ill read the next one, but if its anything like this one, that will be the end of the series for me.

    hilarious! can't wait for #4!

    it's a must to read the first two in order before reading the 3rd, but if you love humor, mystery and especially cats *and understand cat's quirky nature* you're gonna love these books. Very well written, very funny and very suspenseful. Can't wait for #4! :)

    Why?

    There are so many things wrong with this book that I don't even know where to start. Even in the realm of cozies this story is lame. Then throw in childish plot devises like the viewpolnt of bricks and the moon, not to mention frogs with mostaches and hairless micein jackets and it really makes me wonder how this book ever got published.

    A Charmong whimsical mystery

    Since her Uncle Oscar passed away, his niece Rebecca took over his antique store The Green Vase and his apartment in San Francisco. Very few people shop at the Green Vase so the niece depends on Rupert the cat finding hidden packs of money that Oscar hid all over his abode. Rupert's latest find is not money but a toy bear holding a sign saying Nevada City. That is where Tour of California starts and hopefully a clue to a hidden Oscar treasure.

    Hoping to avoid Frank Lapis who pressured her and almost killed her trying to ger uncle's secrets; Rebecca, her two cats (Rupert and Isabella) and Monty the nosy neighbor head to Nevada City where she finds another bear with a sign that says Sutter Fort. They head there next while meeting two men in disguise who follow the niece to see what treasure she finds. One of the villains plans to steal the treasure and kill her; the other has a different shocker for Oscar's niece.

    This exciting road trip goes from danger to humor and back as the adorable cats are brilliant tacticians who amusingly but cleverly maneuver the niece somewhat for treats but often to keep her safe. Fast-paced, cozy readers who enjoy something different will relish the charming Cats and Curios Mysteries (see Nine Lives Last Forever and How to Wash a Cat) as Oscar's niece continues her dangerous adventures into the weird whimsical world of her late Uncle.
