Review by Library Journal Reviews

Summer along Lake Michigan should be idyllic, but from time to time assistant library director/bookmobile driver Minnie Hamilton and Eddie, her cat, encounter major drama. One afternoon, the bookmobile becomes an ambulance, transporting to the closest hospital a local artist, Russell McCade, who has suffered a stroke. Russell and his wife, Barb, are grateful, naturally, and a friendship evolves. When Russell is named as a suspect in a murder, Minnie is shocked. The McCades are devastated, and in true amateur sleuth fashion, Minnie knows she must investigate. After some harrowing situations, most notably on her houseboat, Minnie and Eddie solve the case. VERDICT Cass's heartfelt second series entry (after Lending a Paw) demonstrates real flair and features an earnest yet professional protagonist with an extremely likable and intuitive cat. Partner with Miranda James, of course, and also consider Clea Simon. [Page 62]. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

In the bookmobile, librarian Minnie Hamilton and her rescue cat, Eddie, roll out great summer reads to folks all over the lake town of Chilson, Michigan. And when real-life drama turns deadly, Minnie makes sure justice is never overdue. The bookmobile is making its usual rounds when Minnie and Eddie are flagged down by a woman in distress. The woman’s husband, a famous artist, needs emergency medical care. After getting him into the bookmobile, Minnie races the man to the hospital in time…but his bad luck has only just begun. After disappearing from the hospital, the artist is discovered slumped over the body of a murdered woman. Minnie knows that her new friend didn’t commit the crime, but the evidence paints an unflattering picture. Now this librarian and her furry friend have to put the investigation in high gear and catch the real killer before someone else checks out.
