Books from the Backlog - Booking the Crook

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Booking the Crook (A Bookmobile Cat Mystery #7) by Laurie Cass

Blurb: Minnie Hamilton and her rescue cat, Eddie, cruise around lovely Chilson, Michigan delivering happiness and good reads in their bookmobile. But the feisty librarian is worried that the bookmobile's future could be uncertain when a new library board chair arrives and doesn't seem too friendly to her pet project.
Still, she has to put her personal worries aside when she and Eddie are out on their regular route and one of their favorite customers doesn't turn up to collect her books. Minnie, at Eddie's prodding, checks on the woman and finds her lying dead in her snow-covered driveway. Now it's up to Minnie and her friends--feline and otherwise--to find the perpetrator and give them their due.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I got this for review last year and never around to it but I've heard great things about the series and this one looks really fun.


  1. The police in these small towns must be totally useless when the amateur detectives always save the day!

    1. YES! That is a huge flaw in so many cozies.

  2. Such a fun cover, and glad you'll be able to get it to it soon. Hugs, RO

  3. This sounds great, Katherine! It is a cozy with a bookmobile and cats so it would be hard to resist. I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it!

  4. A bookmobile and a cat, sounds nearly perfect. Enjoy!
