Quill struggles to dispel rumors circulating in Moose County that extraterrestrial beings are responsible for the disappearance of a stray backpacker, while his sleuthing Siamese companion, Koko, develops an interest in the night sky

Blackwell North Amer
Qwilleran, Koko, and Yum Yum are hoping for a peaceful month of July spent sitting on the porch of their cabin by a lake in Mooseville. It's not so far from home - but far enough away from the bustle and bustle of Pickax that Qwill figures he might actually find some peace and quiet.
When rumors begin to circulate that UFOs are responsible for the disappearance of a stray backpacker, whose body is later discovered on the lakeshore, Qwill finds it difficult to maintain "vacation" mode.
Then, of course, there's the knitting craze, which is attracting some very unlikely members of the community, and some highly innovative plans for this year's Fourth of July parade, and a dog-cart race. Yet all of this is just par for the course in slightly out-of-whack Moose County....
Things become downright eerie when Koko begins to pass hours on the porch in the dark, watching the sky for stars - or something. And as the inexplicable goings-on get stranger and stranger, Qwill starts to wonder who or what is in fact responsible, if not extraterrestrial visitors.

Another appealing tale but not as interesting as others in the series. The aliens idea is silly; the backpacker mystery is never solved, or did I just space out while listening? The further mystery of the drowning has an unexpected resolution.

This is another in the series that I feel was ghost written. The flavour is all wrong compared to LJB's earlier books. The cats don't do much, and the ending..??? UFOs???
