The "New York Times" bestselling author of "No Cats Allowed "and "Arsenic and Old Books" is back with more Southern charm and beguiling mystery as Charlie and Diesel must find a killer in a room full of librarians...
Light-hearted librarian Charlie Harris is known around his hometown of Athena, Mississippi, for walking his cat, a rescued Maine Coon named Diesel. But he may soon be taken for a walk himself in handcuffs...
Charlie is stressed out. The Southern Academic Libraries Association is holding this year s annual meeting at Athena College. Since Charlie is the interim library director, he must deliver the welcome speech to all the visiting librarians. And as if that weren t bad enough, the keynote address will be delivered by Charlie s old nemesis from library school.
It s been thirty years since Charlie has seen Gavin Fong, and he s still an insufferable know-it-all capable of getting under everyone s skin. In his keynote, Gavin puts forth a most unpopular opinion: that degreed librarians will be obsolete in the academic libraries of the future. So, when Gavin is found dead, no one seems too upset...
But Charlie, who was seen having a heated argument with Gavin after the speech, has jumped to the top of the suspect list. Now Charlie and Diesel must check out every clue to refine their search for the real killer among them before the next book Charlie reads comes from a prison library..."
This book tickled me pink from beginning to end. I loved the whole which librarian is guilty duck, duck, goose circling of who is guilty and who isn't?
12 Angry Librarians is the 8th book in the Cat in the Stacks series and the first one I've read but I didn't need to read the previous books to enjoy this one and I didn't need to study the series to jump right in to the fun. I love that because I liked it so much that I can't wait to pick up the previous books and add them to my collection.
Although I'm not a librarian - as someone who works in a popular bookstore I can relate to this story so well and was entertained even more.
It was fun, it was entertaining, and it was written very well. I would highly recommend this book.
This title will be available for purchase on February 21, 2017!
