About fourteen-years-ago, I stumbled up on a few Cat Who books by Lilian Jackson Braun and I quickly fell in love with the series. I purchased the other books in the series on eBay and I bought every new book up until the series sudden end because of the author's death in 2011. Similar to the Cat Who series is A Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Caper series, but with a slight difference; instead of the books being in the point-of-view of the human owner, this series is from the point-of-view of the cats.

The Case of the Jewel Covered Cats Statues finds the detective duo, Buckley and Bogey, investigating their biggest mystery. It all starts when someone breaks into their human mom's antique store and leaves a mysterious package. Of course Buckley and Bogey take the package with them in  attempt to give it back to the original owner, but it is not as easy as it sounds as many people show up wanting it.

All of this may have something to do with the little fact that a priceless jeweled statue collection is on display at the St. Gertrude Museum. Two of the statues disappeared over 150 years ago, which is another mystery the cat duo would like to solve.

While I missed out on reading the other book in the series, The Case of the Cat Show Princess and The Case of the Crafty Christmas Cooks, I had no problems jumping into this one as it is more of a stand-alone story. Unlike other mystery novels that include felines, this story is from the point-of-view of Buckley the cat, so readers get a chance to see what life is like through the eyes of a cat. Being a cat lover myself, I loved the fact that the cats in the story make security rounds every night to protect their house while their owners are sleeping. It makes me wonder what my cat, Gaby, does when I'm asleep at night. Overall, The Case of the Jewel Covered Cat Statues is a clean-cut sleuth novel that I enjoyed reading from start to finish.
