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!!!

Rebecca has taken over the Antiques shop of her deceased Uncle and is running it with the help of her 2 cats Rupert & Isabella. Thanks to Rupert, she has discovered a clue left by her Uncle. The find leads her on a scavenger hunt to collect clue after clue for a hidden...treasure?
The characters are quirky & superbly written. The whole book has the most detailed descriptions & is FULL to the brim with all kinds of historical anecdotes from the Gold Rush era of California.
This is the 3rd book in the series & I wish I had read the first 2 books prior to reading this one... I would have enjoyed a more thorough background on some of these crazy characters!!
There were references to events and characters that were apparently introduced in the first two books in the series but without explanation in this one that left me a bit confused at times. It wasn't a big detraction from the storyline but more of an annoying distraction for me personally.
Cat lovers will enjoy this book because of the antics of Rupert and Isabella. I have nothing against cats but I wasn't drawn to the way the story included their thoughts and actions as if they were actual characters. Other than that and the vague references from the previous books, the overall storyline was somewhat entertaining and good for light reading.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
TONS of California history, pre-gold rush.
Anthropomorphic cats (not unusual in books), but also the moon and bricks in a wall, among others. A bit much for a book that is otherwise not a fantasy.
Entertaining, but I don't know that I'll check out any of the others she's written. Too much of a mish-mash for my taste.
