Overview

With the help of her rescue cat, Eddie, librarian Minnie Hamilton is driving a bookmobile based in the resort town of Chilson, Michigan. But she’d better keep both hands on the wheel, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride…

Eddie followed Minnie home one day, and now she can’t seem to shake the furry little shadow. But in spite of her efforts to contain her new pal, the tabby sneaks out and trails her all the way to the bookmobile on its maiden voyage. Before she knows it, her slinky stowaway becomes her cat co-pilot!

Minnie and Eddie’s first day visiting readers around the county seems to pass without trouble—until Eddie darts outside at the last stop and leads her to the body of a local man who’s reached his final chapter.

Initially, Minnie is ready to let the police handle this case, but Eddie seems to smell a rat. Together, they’ll work to find the killer—because a good librarian always knows when justice is overdue.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A charming start to the new Bookmobile Cat series. Librarian Minnie Hamilton is kind-hearted, loyal, and resourceful. And her furry sidekick, Eddie, is equal parts charm and cat-titude.”—New York Times bestselling author Sofie Kelly

Lending a Paw is a pleasurable, funny read. Minnie is a delight as a heroine, and Eddie could make even a staunch dog-lover more of a cat fan.”—RT Book Reviews

Library Journal

Becoming the Bookmobile Lady is a dream assignment for Minnie Hamilton, an idealistic young librarian determined to bring services to folks throughout Michigan's Chilson Library District. But she never dreamt that the bookmobile's maiden voyage would also include her finding a murdered man in a ditch—the victim had been a major library benefactor. (Actually, her cat Eddie finds the body, but Minnie's more circumspect about that point with the authorities.) The dead man, however, had plenty of enemies, and tracking down the killer takes more research time than the cops can expend. Of course, a curious, impatient librarian and her cat must investigate. VERDICT It's hard to resist a cozy debut featuring a spunky librarian with an impeccable service attitude and her slightly magical cat who rides shotgun on her bookmobile. Well researched, with low-key humor and an intriguing mystery—don't miss this one. Cass also writes as Laura Alden (Curse of the PTA).
