Heartwarming characters and a few strange ones. Eddie the bookmobile cat is a sweetheart who has found a dead body in Wrong Side of The Paw. Librarian, Minnie is a loveable character. I loved reading about her and Eddie's latest bookmobile adventure and the tension you could cut with a knife.

Highly suspenseful with tons of suspects including Minnie's friend, Rafe. There's and ending and a new beginning for romance. Minnie is cleaver and and determined along with Eddie. I can't wait to read the

Minnie Hamilton and furry sidekick, Eddie are back and driving their bookmobile right into another murder.

I have truly enjoyed this series since the first book, LENDING A PAW. I’ve always wanted to drive a bookmobile, so that may be how protagonist Winnie, and her cat, Eddie wormed their way into my heart so quickly.

Author Laurie Cass devised a strong plot for this sixth book in the Bookmobile Cat Mysteries. WRONG SIDE OF THE PAW was another great tail . . . I mean tale, with action and mayhem

Big changes are ahead for Librarian Minnie Hamilton and her lovely cat Eddie in Wrong Side of the Paw, the 6th book in the Bookmobile Cat Mystery series. One thing remains the same though....Minnie is a magnet for dead bodies. Wherever she seems to appear. This time Eddie discovers the body of a Chilson, Michigan builder. Dale LaCombe's lifeless body is found in the bed of a pickup truck. Unfortuantely, his daughter Leese is driving the truck. She immediately becomes a murder suspect ...more
A fun read and a terrific ending, I just hope that the series isn't over. The author has updated her website since the 5th book was released.

I finished Wrong Side of The Paw by Laurie Cass Friday at swim lessons for my boys and oh boy did I ever enjoy this one. Laurie Cass has created such a wonderful series around a tiny librarian who drives a book mobile in a tiny tourist town, with a great kitty sidekick. If ever there was to be a Librarian Superhero, the image I get is that of main character Minnie Hamilton. I have read this entire series and feel like I have gotten to know Minnie like a close friend even a cousin after all this ...more
Mrrr! Come? Non avete capito? Eddie vi sta dicendo che questo libro è da 4 stelle e mezza!
Scherzi a parte, mi piace come l'autrice riesca a far parlare Eddie il gatto usando sempre lo stesso verso (mrrr, appunto) in varie declinazioni onomatopetiche. Sì, parla proprio se uno riesce a capire il gattese! E aiuta Minnie a trovare il colpevole, anche se lei all'inizio non lo capisce. A proposito di colpevole, non appena è stato svelato l'episodio-chiave ho capito subito chi fosse, ma fino ad allora

Minnie and her cat Eddie work at a library and drive the book mobile. Eddie jumps out of the bookmobile and hops into a pickup and finds a dead body. Minnie's friend, a lawyer, is the daughter of the dead man and is blamed for his murder. Minnie decides to find out who could've done it and finds there is a lot more to the story. A side story is that Minnie turned down the library director job so she could continue to drive the bookmobile. That part of the story is hard to believe and the new lib ...more
Hilary (A Wytch's Book Review)
Oh my word I think this is the best one yet! Minnie has a new boss (and though you wouldn't have thought it possible she is worse than the previous one!), she also has a new friend in the form of a lawyer, unfortunately she (the lawyer) has ended up on the wrong side of the paw/law and it is up to Eddie and Minnie to save the day.

This book read like it was by a different author. The first fifteen chapters or so made little mention of Eddie. It just sort of rattled all g getting nowhere and adding more minor characters. Then there was this sudden wakeup like omg I've got to wind this up and there is race to get everything finished before the prescribed number of chapters are finished. For me it was a disappointing finish to what had been an enjoyable series.

First, I love the title of this - did Eddie get up on the wrong side of the paw this morning? And the cover is as colorfully appealing as the rest of the series. Please don't tell my cats, but Eddie is the bomb! Funny how I see a little bit of Eddie in each of them...

Minnie is an awesome librarian; I forget that many librarians actually like to find information for the community they serve. And she is head and shoulders above the new library director...even if she doesn't wear Italian leather sh

I have read every book in this series, in order, from the 1st to this new 6th book. It is a delightful cozy featuring a librarian who lives on a houseboat in Michigan with the stray who picked her to be his companion. She also drives a bookmobile to the outer community and helps solves crimes in her spare time. What occurred to me is while reading this book is that the author keeps getting better with each story and the best way to read them is by starting at the beginning to understand the char ...more

Found this book in the donation pile at the library and it sounded like just the thing to fill in some time before I read my next book club book. Hadn't read any of the previous books. It checked practically all the boxes. Librarian--I am a retired librarian volunteering at my local public library which..........just bought a bookmobile. Like cats---yes. Michigan---used to live there.

Maybe I expected too much of this book. So much of it was slow going, the search for suspects was tiresome and it

As a book it was ok, as a mystery... pretty much a dud. There wasn't really a sense of build up or really any mystery, as the reader can guess who it is pretty much as soon as the person appears. Minnie just goes around asking questions without subtlety, forgetting important details until weird moments, making illogical judgments (sorry, but a guy that gets upset and kicks a brick, breaking his OWN toe, does not strike me as someone with "dangerously violent" outbursts). Then the ending really f ...more

You don’t have to be a librarian to realize that the men and women who chose this particular career path have become the basis for some of the best characters in the ‘cozy’ genre.

This, the sixth Bookmobile Cat Mystery, has librarian Minnie Hamilton returning to once again get immersed in a mystery that is a whole lot of fun.

It’s time for Minnie to take a seat, gather up her cat, Eddie, and set out on a ride in her bookmobile. Eddie is always up for an adventure, and has a true gift for finding t

I began reading the Bookmobile Cat series due to its having two of my favorite things, books and cats. :) I continued the series because it's well-written and engages my interest. I'm always drawn into the story which is one of the things I look for in a book. Unlike when I was younger, I now have no trouble closing a book and not picking it up again if it doesn't hold my interest but the Bookmobile Cat is not one of those books. I eagerly look forward to the release of each new book in the seri ...more
Actually, 4.5 stars. But close enough, and I don't mind giving Cass an extra boost in her ratings. :)
I'll start off by saying that I am pretty sure this is the last book in the series. I am a little disappointed, but this novel wrapped up so nicely that I'm actually okay with that. It reminds me of the Batman quote, "You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." Well, the same thing happens to books. As the author, you have to end it before everyone hates it.

I think this might be the final book in the series, which makes it even more of a disappointment. I have really adored the Bookmobile Cat Mysteries, but this one fell so flat. Cozy mysteries aren't exactly known for their stunning reveals, but this one was lame even for a cozy. Anyone with a pulse should have known the SECOND Leese revealed that her father had been the cause of a horrible car crash and that the driver of the other car was thrown from the vehicle, but did not specify that the man ...more

This a highly loveable series. The heroine, Minnie Hamilton, though only an efficient 5 feet tall, has great character and is thoroughly delightful. She is a librarian (I wanted to be one and my daughter is one) and the assistant director. She is highly creative, thinking about plans for library programs and other things as well. And she is the bookmobile driver! She was the one that suggested it and is the one who drives it, which is why she didn’t apply for the Director’s job in the last book. ...more

Minnie and Eddie are out on a bookmobile run, when Eddie bails out at a stop, hops in the bed of a pickup truck, and discovers a dead body. The driver of the truck, Leese Lacombe, immediately falls under suspicion for the murder of her father, but Minnie doesn't believe the mild-mannered attorney would harm anyone. Determined to prove Leese didn't kill her father, Minnie starts asking around town, and what she learns is that more people had a motive to kill Dale Lacombe than didn't.

Market a book as a cat mystery and I will jump at the chance to slink to a cozy place and curl up with a book. This series falls into a lovely shore in Michigan at the beginning of fall. Assistant director and librarian Minnie and her frisky cat, Eddie, win the hearts of the small community with her pleasing manner and her winning personality, but when murder strikes, Minnie is all business. I have not read the previous novels in this series, but I enjoyed this cozy mystery. Laurie Cass follows ...more

I paid for this book a few weeks ago, all ready on the 25th to start reading. I read half of it and then started feeling a bit unwell so I went to sleep- woke up with a terrible headache that prevented me from reading :( Devo'd! Finally today I'm feeling a bit better so I decided to finish. It was everything I hoped for and more, especially in the romance department! Six books and FINALLY, this one feels right haha.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.
