This is the first book in The Bookmobile Cat Mystery series. I like it well enough to read more. The main character, Minnie, who is the bookmobile librarian, is interesting, and I like Erin Bennett‘s narration.

ferskner I sent my package off yesterday - I'm sorry it's late! It was shockingly hard to get to the post office last week. 1mo

It was finally a nice enough day to spent some time outside reading at the train station. YAY!

This is a cozy mystery set in a small town library in Michigan. I like it.

This was my #booked2019 choice for a book reminds me of my happy place. It‘s a cozy mystery, with a cat that “helps” solve the crime, and the majority of it is set on a bookmobile!! I grew up in a very small town and my all time favorite days at school were the days the bookmobile came and the scholastic book fair. It was a solid start to a cozy series. This finishes the quarter for me for this challenge!!

Reading in the Sun Room at Kripalu - you can‘t see it, but through those windows is a gorgeous view of the Berkshires. It‘s been a really gorgeous day, it‘s such a cool place - and I‘m so glad I managed to sneak in some reading time here. 📚❤️🧘‍♂️

SW-T @mcipher Good cozy mystery 😊 8mo
Aimeesue Ahhh, Stockbridge in winter! How I don‘t miss that very much at all. Have a great visit though, Kripalu‘s got a beautiful campus. 8mo
TiredLibrarian Are you enjoying it there? I've thought about going but haven't yet. 8mo

mcipher @SW-T It is! I‘m really enjoying it so far. 8mo
mcipher @Aimeesue Oddly there was pretty much no snow, but it was like 5 degrees this morning! ❄️ 🥶 (edited) 8mo
mcipher @TiredLibrarian It was really cool, I‘d recommend it! It was much more like a college than I expected - kind of a big modern corporate type building - but the classes were great and the scenery is gorgeous and the food was really good, and it has such a mellow atmosphere. I‘d love to go back and do a multi-day program but it‘s so expensive to stay over. 8mo
TiredLibrarian @mcipher Thanks for the description! I'll have to look at their upcoming workshops. 😊 8mo
Aimeesue @mcipher That can‘t be making the ski places happy. I grew up in Berkshire County - don‘t miss the winters, but it‘s gorgeous in the fall. 8mo
mcipher @tiredlibrarian Awesome! I hope you have fun! 8mo
mcipher @Aimeesue It‘s pretty in the winter if you don‘t live there all the time! 😝 But yeah, I bet the ski places are really unhappy, and any of the other winter tourism stuff. 8mo

This is between so-so and pick. It was really drawn out where nothing was happening with the mystery. There is a lot about the book mobile tho. There‘s a lot about Eddie the cat too. It‘s enjoyable but lacks something for a cozy mystery. #readwomen #cozymystery

I absolutely adored this book, and have subsequently read 3 more of them since and am on the 5th. Is there a better partnership than Minnie the Librarian and her kitty cat, Eddie? 😍😍

Librarybelle I enjoy the series too! 1y
BookishBrooklyn @Librarybelle I'm so.glad! I don't know what I'll do after I finish book 6 😭 1y

Decent read. Enjoyed Eddie the cat and generally like anything related to libraries or bookmobiles.

Minnie Hamilton is a librarian, and driver of the brand new bookmobile. On their first trip she finds a dead body with the help of her cat Eddie. It is the donner who funded the purchase of the bookmobile. Minnie sets out to find the killer with Eddie's help. A really fun read, especially if you love cats being cats, behind the scenes library life, summer in Michigan, and fun local characters. A great cozy.

Starting a new-to-me mystery series focused on a bookmobile librarian and her adventurous cat. Mysteries are my go-to when I'm struggling in life.

Love this cat cozy mystery series. Cats and books, excellent combination.

This was a fun read. The killer wasn't a really a surprise, but I like that the cat seems to be actively involved in the case - his attitude reminds me of my own born-to-rule Mikey-Cat. And not everything is neatly tied-up with the match-making at the boarding house. And much of it takes place in a library and its bookmobile. Excellent!

BeththeBookDragon Have you read A Man Called Ove? His car, the Feline Annoyance, is pretty cool too 3y

And now for some lighter reading, and then maybe sleep... but cats AND bookmobiles? We'll see...
