This is the second book in the Bookmobile Mystery series by Nora Page. I just love the idea of an old school bus refurbished into a bookmobile and had read the first book last year. I loved both of the books and can definitely say that Cleo and Henry are two of my favorite cozy couples. Mary-Rose is a great bestie. She’s not quite the ride-along type of sidekick some besties are, but she keeps Cleo informed. Gabby the deputy and Cleo’s favorite neighbor is a sweetheart, who wouldn’t love her for a neighbor? I had a great time reading this one and just like before, I’m really looking forward to the next book!
My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I just loved this book! Cleo and Henry have got to be the most adorable couple, and Cleo is the most loyal and brave friend that anyone could want. The library’s grand opening was coming soon when the library board president brought in a lady named Belle with crazy and outrageous ideas–like that books were clutter (this woman really bugged me, I was hoping she’d be offed or the perp lol). I’d say the author did her job well, because I could not stand Belle and her Airstream flashing-lights bookless-mobile. When the town diva and the patron with the longest overdue book was found dead in her home by Cleo and Henry, Cleo was one of the suspects. She did manage to get to the bottom of everything and restore her good name. I guessed the killer because of cleverly-placed clues by the author, but it was a lot of fun to see Cleo track the perp down. I have to hand it to Cleo, because she doesn’t do anything alone, and she’s very good about alerting the local deputy, who happens to be her neighbor, Gabby. I can’t wait for the next book!
