Cat With a Clue (A Bookmobile Cat Mystery #5) by Laurie Cass

Occasionally I find a series where each part is fabulous and seems to be better than the last. Cat With a Clue (A Bookmobile Cat Mystery #5) by Laurie Cass kept the high expectations I have for this series on the rise. I loved every word and I know you will too.

From the back of the book:

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 thoughts:

I have probably already said this about this series, but I adore the concept. I love books, that's no secret. Book themed books are among my favorite cozies and this is among my favorite of those. I seriously think this was the best in the series. You can start right here if you like, in fact do, but be prepared to seek out the other parts when you fall head over heels for the people. Especially Minnie, and of course Eddie. You know I love Eddie!

I feel like the characters have grown and attained such a realistic depth. They really feel like friends, cozy. The setting is the same way. It feels like coming home. The mystery made me think and had a lovely pace. Speaking of pace, I did try to pace myself but this was one that I devoured. Now, like you, I will be anxiously awaiting the next part.
