Tailing a Tabby: 08/25/16
Tailing a Tabby by Laurie Cass is the second in the Bookmobile Cat Mystery series. Minnie while on her rounds with the bookmobile is flagged down to help a man who is suffering a stroke. Later the man, who happens to be a locally famous artist, leaves his hospital room and is later found slumped over the body of a murdered young woman. Minnie believes he couldn't possibly have had the strength or heart to do such a thing and sets out to discover to clear his name.
But this murder investigation is almost secondary to the other things going on in Minnie's life. She's still trying to keep Eddie the cat secret from the library director. She also still has to find funding since her benefactor died in the first book, Lending a Paw.
Of the four books I've read so far in the series, this one struck me as the most disjointed. It's the one that doesn't really stick out in my memory beyond the initial event and the continued back and forth at the library. Because this one hasn't made more of an impression, I can't give it a higher rating even though over all I am enjoying the series.
