I couldn't wait to revisit these characters once again. This is by far one of my very favorite cozy mystery series, heartwarming characters, not including the killer and most of the time the victims too. Twelve Angry Librarians, although I found it slow at times because of how author Miranda James is very through in relaying characters backstory in relation to the librarians careers, the mystery and setting made Twelve Angry Librarians well worth the read.
Southern Academic Library Association Conference is the largest in the county. This year Librarian, Charlie Harris and his companion and adorable Maine Coon Cat, Diesel are attending. Gavin Fong went to library school with Charlie's, has a sketchy past with him and he
is the keynote speaker. Gavin is a jerk and a conensending snot.
Charlie ends up getting into a scuffle with him, very unlike Charlie, and it also shocked me.
Charlie is also applying for his job as permanent library director that Charlie is fretting over. Gavin while making his speech drops dead after drinking a bottle of water that was poisoned, and then not too long after that Gavin's assistant suffers the same fate.
There's a lot of drama in Charile's life right now, worrying about taking the job as the library director and his pregnant daughter and family possibly relocating to Virginia.
He also wants to spend more time with is girlfriend who runs a French Bistro another favorite of mine is their relationship, sweet and very endearing. But like always Charlie can't help but get involved in the investigation to find who this killer is.
Twists and turns were very entertaining, even the method of the killer and the murder was cleaver and well written.
I love when a book keeps me wanting to pick it up again, that was Twelve Angry Librarians for me.
