    I enjoyed it!

    I am glad I took a chance on this book. I could not get into the first book in the series but this was really good. The characters were enjoyable and the whodunit was rock solid. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to reading the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Read On Arrival!

    Seventy-five year old librarian, Cleo Watkins believes in good manners, respect, and justice. She has been trying to get Dixie Huddleston to return the book she borrowed over forty years ago. When Dixie apprises Cleo that she will return the book, Cleo is skeptical. Dixie has fooled her before. When Dixie states that she has lost all her luck and asks Cleo to meet her, Cleo is hopeful. When Cleo arrives, she finds Dixie’s body riddled with bee stings, dead. Can Cleo find the culprit before she’s the one arrested for murder? I really liked this novel. It had juicy characters that you couldn’t figure out if they were the murderer or not. It had a plot that was twisty enough that the pages kept turning. I loved the main character and her determination to find the killer and protect her friends. The only drawback with this story was that it was a little drawn out, in my opinion. It slowed the pace of the book. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Southern Senior snooping!

    Southern, cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, seniors, librarian If you like Southern cozies with seniors, a librarian, a cat, and a diabolical murder you will do the happy dance over this one! I almost gave up early over all the squabbling that comprised the backstory at the beginning, but that would have been a *criminal* mistake. All that mess really was essential to a very interesting and twisty tale full of red herrings and characters who truly are. The publisher's blurb is pretty good and there is no need for spoilers. Just don't let the very beginning cloud your judgment as there are real clues hidden there! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Crooked Lane Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Love me some Miss Cleo!

    Small town head librarian Cleo Watkins captains the library’s book mobile, Words on Wheels, and is looking forward to the grand reopening of the library proper. What would make the grand reopening fantastic for her is to get back a forty year over due book. While she’s tried to recover the book from Dixie Huddleston for years, Dixie, who claims the book is her lucky charm and the secret to her success, just taunts Cleo and keeps the book. When Dixie sees signs and omens, she believes death is coming for her, and promises to return the book to make amends. While Cleo isn’t counting on it, she does go to collect the book from Dixie, but what she finds is Dixie’s body. No book. With so many people Dixie wronged over the years, the list of suspects is broad...and Cleo is on the list! Whoever killed Dixie obviously knew her secrets, her attachment to to the book, and he fears…and Cleo is going to find out who did Dixie in. Small town life provides a variety of characters, each is unique and provides a different view of the town, the victim, and library science. life. I did not see the murdered until the reveal, which makes this even more fun to read and try to figure out whodunit. An enjoyable read and series.

    One zany cozy mystery

    Read on Arrival is the second novel in A Bookmobile Mystery series. While it can be read alone, I believe it is best to indulge in Better Off Read first. Read on Arrival is nicely written with steady pacing and unique characters. Cleo Watkins is 75 ¾ and has no intention of retiring from her position as head librarian at Catalpa Springs Library. She has discovered she enjoys tootling about the countryside in her bookmobile-Words on Wheels. Cleo has Leanna, her assistant, to keep an eye on things at the library for her. There are a variety of quirky characters in the story ranging from Cleo’s gentleman friend, Henry to Deputy Gabby Honeywell to Rhett, the bookmobile’s Persian cat mascot. Catalpa Springs is a typical small Southern town where gossip spreads faster than maple syrup on a hot stack of pancakes and there are some unusual residents like Dixie. Humor is rampant throughout the story. It reminded me of the slapstick comedy reminiscent of I Love Lucy and The Three Stooges. There is plenty of activity in Read on Arrival with Dixie’s murder, death threats on coffin shapes items, Cleo investigating, and Belle trying to ruin the library. I did have to remind myself that this was a work of fiction (reality cannot be applied). Someone cannot get away with keeping a book checked out for 40 years today (twenty years ago, but not now). The situation with Belle is also unrealistic. Libraries do wish to attract readers, but they will not toss out their books to accomplish it (or rip off the covers because the colors do not match their color scheme). The mystery was straightforward, and I easily identified the killer (it was a piece of cake). There are pointed clues and a limited number of suspects. My favorite phrase from Read on Arrival is “don’t wake the slumbering human bed” from Rhett, the cat. Read on Arrival is a lighthearted, humorous cozy mystery with killer bees, death threats, a delinquent book, mimes, two dead bodies, a sleuthing librarian, an “innobrarian”, and a mascot named Rhett.
