I love reading this series, it's one of my favorites because of Minnie Hamilton, librarian  and  the libraries bookbmobile and her lovable and protective and sometimes mischievous cat, Eddie. Minnie is frantically searching for volunteers to join her on her bookmobile deliveries.She is so worried about losing the bookmobile because of limited funding. Minnie is determined to keep the bookmobile on the road for her patrons that are home bound and unable to make it to the library and elementary schools.

Many have volunteered with Minnie on the bookmobile route but when  one named Denise who is also a member of "The Friends of The Library" is unable to make the trip she volunteers her husband, Roger to go along with Minnie on the fateful voyage but Minnie and Roger being unaware that  it will be Roger's last ride when when they make a rest stop and he is found by Minnie dead. There are many hunters out and about and it is determined that Denise's husband  was  mistakenly  killed by one of them.

After some discovery by the police and some interesting leads it is discovered that Roger's death was not an accident and it was in fact murder and Roger was not the intended target. With Minnie's boss, Stephen breathing down her neck about the future of the book mobile Minnie has to hurry to find who would want to murder Roger and find this killer before they find the intended target and they end that person's life  and  the bookmobile comes to an end.


Minnie and her bookmobile cat, Eddie make this series come alive with her love of reading, books and her beloved bookmobile. She is everything that a ameteur sleuth entails, determined, fiesty, and driven to keep the bookmobile at all costs and find a murderer. The connection between them is fun loving and heart warming. A real pleasure for this book and cat lover to have read and if you love books and cats this series is perfect for you and especially this book, It really makes you wonder what antics Minnie and Eddie and the bookmobile will get into next and we will discover that in Pouncing on Murder the next in the series.'

  17. I remember going to a 100 plus year old elementary school that did not have a libarary so we depended on a bookmobile. SInce reading is my favorite pastime, I really loved that bookmobile. I can understand why the main character was determined to keep it going. Thank you for the chance to win a copy.
