Описание

The nationally bestselling author of Pouncing on Murder returns as librarian Minnie Hamilton and her rescue cat Eddie discover there's a true crime story unraveling in their own nonfiction section . . .

Early one morning while shelving books in the library, Minnie stumbles upon a dead body. Authorities identify the woman as an out-of-towner visiting Chilson for her great-aunt's funeral. What she was doing in the library after hours is anyone's guess . . . but Minnie and Eddie are determined to save the library's reputation and catch a killer.

As rumors about the victim circulate through Chilson, the police are in a bind over a streak of baffling break-ins. Luckily, Minnie and Eddie are traveling the county in their bookmobile, and they'll stop at nothing to find the spineless killer before the final page is turned on someone else.

    Nice entry, at least she is learning some self defense.

    Another wonderful novel about Minnie and Eddie!

    If you enjoyed this novel, you might also like to discover the Lighthouse Library Mystery Series by Eva Gates or Library Lover's Mystery Series by Jenn McKinlay. A trio of wonderful authors with exquisite series that should not be missed by readers loving stories about libraries, librarians, and cats. Purrs. :)

    Cat with a Clue by Laurie Cass is the fifth in A Bookmobile Cats Mystery series. Minnie Hamilton is the interim Director of the Chilson Public Library since the director left for a better position. She is still driving the bookmobile as well. Minnie arrives two hours early for work to get ahead and starts by shelving books. Minnie is naturally reading while walking to the shelves (and not watching where she is going) and stumbles. She looks down to find the body of a woman with a knife sticking out of her. Minnie immediately calls 911 from the reference department phone. The Chilson Police Department Chief of Police is happy to turn the case over to Detective Inwood and Ash Wolverson (who is training to be a detective). Minnie is happy to see Ash and get a little comfort (he is her boyfriend which is mentioned frequently throughout the novel). The woman is Andrea Vennard who is related to Talia Dekeyser who just passed away. Why was Andrea in the library after hours? Minnie knows this will cast a pall over the library and make patrons (as well as staff) a little afraid of her beloved library. Minnie cannot let this happen and is determined to find the killer. Then the Friends of the Library sale room is broken into and disturbed. Nothing seems to have been taken, but it is hard to tell (they do not keep records). After the local antique store is broken into, Minnie begins to notice the pattern. The killer is looking for (spoiler)! Minnie just has to find out what (spoiler) they are looking for and find it before the culprit. The staff at the library is trying to get Minnie to apply to be the permanent director of the library. But Minnie is not sure she wants the responsibility full-time. After the board interviews each candidate, the pressure is increased. Will Minnie apply for the position?Cat with a Clue is a cute story. Minnie was a little too spacey (instead of quirky) in this novel (more than normal). She seemed to always be walking, wandering, or riding her bike and not paying attention. Her employees even commented that she seemed to have checked out at work. The book is nicely written and easy to read. But I found more of the book devoted to Minnie talking to her cat, Eddie, than to the mystery. The mystery was not complicated (I kept hoping for a curveball) and I knew who did it as soon as the character was introduced. I give Cat with a Clue 3 out of 5 stars (it was okay). I have read all the books in the series and Cat with a Clue is my least favorite. I just expected more. While Cat with a Clue is the fifth book in A Bookmobile Cats Mystery series, it can be read alone. The author updates the reader on Minnie’s background (how she came to the town, opened bookmobile, etc.). There is some romance in the book. Aunt Frances being squired about by Otis Bingham and Minnie dating Ash (we get details on their dates—kayaking, water skiing, etc.). Will I read the next book in this series? Probably. I hope that there will be character development and a more complex mystery. We need more development of Minnie’s character. It is time for her to stop daydreaming (she can still daydream some) and decide what she wants (her work goals and maybe a permanent home). I received a complimentary copy of the novel in exchange for an honest review. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.

    Minnie Hamilton is an assistant library director in the small town of Chilson. Her cat and confidante Eddie is the officially unofficial ambassador of the bookmobile that Minnie and Eddie drive through the county and in his downtime he is a typical cryptic feline out for his own gain. Life in this small town is quaint and typically nothing really happens there. It is full of well meaning neighbors and thanks to the gossip mill there are truly no secrets either. With typical small town life being…well typical, it comes as a shock to Minnie when she shows up early for work one day and find a murdered stranger in her library. Even more compounding is that there is truly no plausible explanation for the situation.The start of this book is wonderful. We are given just the right amount of details to build a charming town in our minds eye. I can just see myself taking a stroll in this picturesque town with its few blocks of a downtown, old brick buildings mixed in with the newer clapboard buildings painted in a variety of colors. I can see all the storefront owners opening up their shops for the day, advertising their wares. It is a very realistic setting.News of the murder creates a sense of unease with the local inhabitants. What is more confounding is that the victim is no stranger but a descendant of the local DeKeyser family who’s matriarch had just passed away. A murder in small town incites the local gossip mill with their theories of who done it and why. No one is taking this line of pondering more seriously than Minnie as it happened in her library and has potentially smirched the library’s reputation.If murder was not enough for her small town, there is now a rash of vandalism taking place throughout the town. It seems that there is more to this story than just foul play. Out to solve the mystery and put an end to the troubles afflicting Chilson Minnie starts tracking down leads. Interacting with many of the local inhabitants gives Minnie much to ponder and she is able to start putting together pieces of this puzzle. Which leads her straight into the arms of danger. In the end it is up to Minnie and her wits to stay alive and bring an end to this mystery.This was entertaining way to pass the time. In this story the supporting characters are reminiscent of what you find in a small town, and although you do not get to know them with a great degree of intimacy they are very enjoyable. I liked to quirkiness of Minnie, she is well developed and adds humor to the story with her companion and confidante Eddie. From early on I was able to surmise the ‘why’ of the mystery followed shortly after by the ‘who’ but the author does a good job of weaving in some red herrings in the background to make you hang on until the end to see if your assumptions were correct. I would recommend this book as a nice mystery for a beach read or when you are looking for a light and entertaining way to spend a few hours.*Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group & NetGalley for this ARC of Cat with a Clue*

    Minnie Hamilton is working in the library before it opens when she stumbles across a body. The dead woman is not an employee and not a patron Minnie recognizes but what can she have been doing in the library? Pretty soon, there are a series of other petty crimes that seem to center on the library and books. What’s happening in Minnie’s cozy, little world?To add to the confusion, the library board is in the midst of candidates interviews for a new library director. And the only impression she makes on the candidates seems to be a bad one. Thank goodness Minnie has Eddie, her bookmobile cat, to talk to. This is a sweet, little series that has a lot going for it. Anyone who loves libraries, as I do, and who needs a dose of cozy should try it.
