Review by Library Journal Reviews

Becoming the Bookmobile Lady is a dream assignment for Minnie Hamilton, an idealistic young librarian determined to bring services to folks throughout Michigan's Chilson Library District. But she never dreamt that the bookmobile's maiden voyage would also include her finding a murdered man in a ditch—the victim had been a major library benefactor. (Actually, her cat Eddie finds the body, but Minnie's more circumspect about that point with the authorities.) The dead man, however, had plenty of enemies, and tracking down the killer takes more research time than the cops can expend. Of course, a curious, impatient librarian and her cat must investigate. VERDICT It's hard to resist a cozy debut featuring a spunky librarian with an impeccable service attitude and her slightly magical cat who rides shotgun on her bookmobile. Well researched, with low-key humor and an intriguing mystery—don't miss this one. Cass also writes as Laura Alden (Curse of the PTA). [Page 76]. (c) Copyright 2013.
