In this, the fifth Bookmobile Cat Mystery, librarian Minnie and her cat Eddie return, this time to solve the mystery of a woman’s mysterious death in – of all places – the public library! The victim is an out of towner who was in town for a relative’s funeral – but what was she doing in the library and why was she stabbed? At the same time, a series of baffling break-ins occur – and Minnie notices they all seem to be centered around books. She concludes that there’s a connection between books and the murder – but what?
Laurie Cass once again delivers a top notch mystery, along with the quirky residents of Chilson that we have come to know and love. Cat lovers of all ages can surely relate to Eddie, the lovable Bookmobile cat. While not a solver of mysteries, Eddie surely provides his share of comic relief. There’s also a hint of romance between Minnie and Detective Ash, and maybe a hint of a future romantic triangle? We give this four paws up. ROCCO LOTEMPIO
