Pouncing on Murder: 11/02/16
Pouncing on Murder by Laurie Cass is the fourth in the Bookmobile Cat mystery series. It's spring again and Minnie is trying to put together the library's first book fair. As someone who had planned an event (a much smaller one) at a library, I can attest to the amount of work it takes to get everything together on time.
She also excited about the start of maple syrup season, that is until her good friend and syrup harvester, Henry, is killed by a falling tree. Another friend is badly injured trying to rescue Henry.
This isn't exactly a typically laid out cozy. A third of the book is Minnie reacting to the tree falling. Another third is her trying to set up the event. That last third is the mystery itself. Nonetheless the book is fast a paced page tuner.
