Goodreads Sypnosis:

The national 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.

My Review:

I can never get enough of Minnie and Eddie, books with cats in them are just fabulous and books where the main character is a librarian is also awesome! From the start, Minnie and Eddie have just made me grin and laugh a lot, although in saying that, there were times when I was equally nervous for them both! Especially in this book!

Laurie Cass wastes no time getting to the murder, and this time, the victim is found dead in the library, which instantly made me fear for Minnie, I mean, if someone was killed in the library, maybe that means her life is at risk?

I really had no idea what to expect from this one, but I loved it! Though I did knock off a star because I felt like I knew Minnie and Eddie well enough, and midway through this book, I felt like things were lagging, but once again by that last quarter things had me on edge again!

I must admit though, mysteries aside, I’ve always been in it for Eddie and Minnie, I just love how Minnie banters with her cat so much, and Eddie replies in his mrr ways! I feel like human and feline are written so well, I’ve always been able to clearly visualize them both! I also love Kristen, Minnie’s best friend, and Minnie’s Aunt Frances!

I have high expectations for the last installment of this book, and I can’t wait to dive in!

Happy Reading,
