Good book about reading
Quint the Bookmobile: Barnabus Rides in Style! - Kathleen Quinton,Mousam Banarjee

Okay, I liked the use of the dog and the mobile library. The love of reading the children show is great.

But why are all the children, for the most part, blonde and blue eyed? It's spooky.

 

This was the reason why I at first gave it two stars on GR.  But then the author left a nice comment on the review saying that the children were her grandchildren.  She just wanted to put them in book. Okay, a little less spooky. Still would want some more diversity but it makes sense.  (FYI - she didn't ask that I change my review or anything, even thanked me. She just answered the question).

The Night Bookmobile
The Night Bookmobile - Audrey Niffenegger

An interesting concept. The ending turned me off from the rest of the story.

LENDING A PAW by Laurie Cass
Lending a Paw - Laurie Cass
  Minnie is the assistant director of the library and the bookmobile lady. Eddie is her cat who stows away on the bookmobile. While out on their first day in the bookmobile, Eddie leads Minnie to a dead body. It is the man who provided the money for the bookmobile. His relationships from the past with those in town come to light and everyone is a suspect.

I liked Minnie and Eddie. The cast of characters were interesting and relatable. The questions Minnie asks are good ones but I could not figure out how she figured out the murderer. Nor could I figure out the cops. They were clichéd. Even with the explanation at the end I had trouble following the train of thought that brought her there. I figured there were others who were guilty. Well, it's good I'm not a detective.

While I didn't discover the murderer and could not see Minnie's train of thought, I would like to read more of the series because the characters were so comfortable. I'd like to see where some of the characters go, especially Eddie.

Review: Cat with a Clue
Cat With a Clue (A Bookmobile Cat Mystery) - Laurie Cass

See my full review at Mystereity Reviews

Minnie arrives at work one morning, and as she is shelving book, stumbles onto a woman lying dead on the floor. Soon after, the library, the bookmobile and a local shop are vandalized. Is the murder connected to the vandalism? Minnie and Eddie find themselves once again looking for a killer.

Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars, but I rounded up to 4 because of Eddie. Although enjoyable, it meandered a bit (ok, maybe more than a bit) in the middle. I think there was too many other things going on that distracted from the plot; the search for a new library director, Kristin's insecurities, her aunt's strange behavior, it was a bit too much packed into one book.

I love that Minnie is such a book nerd, it makes her more relatable to me than anything else.

 

"I breathed deep, drawing my favorite smell into my lungs: books. Flowers were all well and good, but what could compare to the scent of stories, of knowledge, of learning, of history?"



And, of course, there's Eddie. He's the star of the show, (mrr!) and he knows it. There's a note at the beginning of the book that the real Eddie passed away earlier this year. How very sad. RIP Eddie *sad mrr*

Overall, I enjoyed Cat with a Clue, but I do think this would've been better with fewer plot threads. This book can be read as a standalone, and I and recommend the series to cozy mystery fans looking for a light read.
