With the help of her rescue cat, Eddie, librarian Minnie Hamilton is driving a bookmobile based in the resort town of Chilson, Michigan. But she'd better keep both hands on the wheel, because it's going to be a bumpy ride....
Eddie followed Minnie home one day, and now she can't seem to shake the furry little shadow. But in spite of her efforts to contain her new pal, the tabby sneaks out and trails her all the way to the bookmobile on its maiden voyage. Before she knows it, her slinky stowaway becomes her cat co-pilot! Minnie and Eddie's first day visiting readers around the county seems to pass without trouble - until Eddie darts outside at the last stop and leads her to the body of a local man who's reached his final chapter.
Initially, Minnie is ready to let the police handle this case, but Eddie seems to smell a rat. Together, they'll work to find the killer - because a good librarian always knows when justice is overdue.

The detectives didn't seem to be doing much about the case so Minnie decided to discover who the killer was. And of course, that led her into danger. Would she live to fight another day? Would Eddie come to her rescue?
Lending a Paw is the 1st in the Bookmobile Cat Mystery series by Laurie Cass and it was lots of fun! Eddie is an intelligent, furry, loveable menace, and Minnie couldn't imagine life without him. I'm looking forward to more adventures with Eddie and Minnie. Recommended.
There were a lot of twists and turns within several storylines that make it exciting for the future books in this series.
Perfect for book lovers and cat lovers set in beautiful Michigan.
When the murder of the library's most generous donor rocked the community, Minnie felt she needed to bring closure to this, because even though Stan was known in the town as a miser, he was always nice and generous to the library and had purchased the bookmobile for them. There were plenty of suspects, and I had no idea who was the killer until the clues started falling into place, and Minnie had a good idea of who it was too. There wasn't really a showdown, just an escape from an old musty barn, but Minnie lived to tell the story and was thanked for her tip she'd given the police. Even though Stan's money that he wanted to leave to the library would be tied up indefinitely, a couple of new donors came through. I would never have thought either of these people would donate from how they were at first. It'll be interesting to know what kind of adventure Minnie and Eddie get into next--and if her boss ever finds out about Eddie!
Minnie has convinced her reluctant supervisor that their small tourist town of Chilson, Michigan needs a bookmobile for places where libraries have had to close down. Fortunately, a rich benefactor donated a huge check to cover all the costs for this project. On it's maiden voyage, Eddie snuck aboard and then ran off at a neglected farmhouse just to discover a dead body. Now Minnie finds herself deep--too deep--into a murder investigation.
Eddie is definitely the leading character in this mystery. All his cat like characteristics come into play, including some small and some elderly patrons' demands for his attention. Minnie talks to Eddie while thinking through her questions and plans, and Eddie very meaningfully "mrrrrs" back, helping her through her thoughts. A terrific human and animal relationship that added so much to this mystery, while driving for solutions to an interesting mystery. Definitely a winner for me and I'm anxious to read the next in this, hopefully, long running series!!

The mystery is well written and well set out with a reasonable amount of misdirection and red herrings to keep the reader happy. The book is honest in its plotting and the clues to the real villain exist thrughout the book if you are sharp enough to see them.
The bookmobile cat, Eddie, is an utter joy.
I intend to read the rest of this series and am disappointed that I have to wait.
It's very detailed with the descriptions and far too many characters.
The book try's hard, but has missed that enjoyable snuggle down to a good read you would expect from this book.
Excellent service from Wordery as always
