  • A lighthearted cozy mystery!

    Gone with the Whisker by Laurie Cass is the 8th A Bookmobile Cat Mystery. It can be read as a standalone if you have not read the prior books in the series or skipped a book or two. Gone with the Whisker contains good writing with friendly characters in a charming small town. Minnie Hamilton is happy to have her niece, Katrina—aka Kate—visiting for the summer. She did not count on the teenage attitude nor Kate’s addiction to her phone. Minnie is busy driving her bookmobile providing books and other materials to those who cannot make it to the library in town. After enjoying a day celebrating the Fourth of July and her birthday, Minnie and her family are heading home. Kate suddenly trips and then lets out a screech. She stumbled upon bookmobile patron, Rex Stuhler who dead from a gunshot. Minnie and her sidekick, Eddie begin delving into the case and providing helpful information to Detectives Wolverson and Inwood. When a second bookmobile patron ends up dead, Minnie believes the cases are connected. She needs to prove it and then find the killer so her niece will stop having nightmares. Minnie comes up with several suspects and a variety of theories with the help of her niece, Kate. I thought the mystery suited the town and relates to an ongoing problem in our country. The whodunit can be solved before the tense conclusion (earlier if you are an avid reader of the genre). I loved Eddie’s part in aiding Minnie. It is cute how Minnie talks to Eddie and he responds with his adorable “mrr”. Anyone who has cats can relate. It is a good thing Eddie is around when Minnie needs him. There are enjoyable cozy moments in the story as Minnie spends time with her family and friends. The ending of Gone with the Whisker is special and will leave you smiling. I am curious when Rafe will finish the house and who will end up winning the pool. I believe everyone in town has placed a bet on the finish date. Gone with the Whisker is a lighthearted cozy mystery with a fun feline, bundles of books, fabulous fireworks, tasty treats, a bustling bookmobile, and continuous construction.

  • Gone with the Whisker

    As with all the Bookmobile Cat mystery books, this one is well written, very likeable characters, and features Eddie the cat, who is much more than he appears— twice in this book he saves Minnie and Kate (Minnie’s niece). Kate comes to visit Minnie, her aunt for the summer, and Minnie has a very difficult time adjusting to the up-and-down moods of a seventeen-year-old girl. On the Fourth of July, during the fireworks show, Kate trips over the body of a dead man. This shock gives her sleeping problems and nightmares so Minnie promises her that she will find the killer to ease the emotional stress on Kate. It’s an interesting book, made much more interesting by Eddie’s conversations.
