Why this book?:
Um. Cats. Books. Cozy Mystery. Need I go on?
I was into Lending a Paw right from the start. I liked Minnie and her job. I loved her bookmobile. (I've never been in one, but I love the idea. Wish the local library had one.) Her cat, Eddie, is great. I liked and/or appreciated most of the secondary characters. And because of Minnie, I was invested in figuring out who murdered the victim. I did guess who the murderer was (though not why until certain details are revealed). But that certainly didn't detract from the book for me.
Basically, though my thoughts apparently aren't lengthy, I really enjoyed this book and am definitely looking forward to reading the next in the series, Tailing a Tabby (due out in July 2014).
