Librarian Trudell Beckett has a knack for solving murders in her hometown of Cypress, SC, much to the dismay of the local police. When Tru walks into Hazel Bailey’s kitchen and finds the dead body of Rebecca White, leader of the Arete Society book club, on the floor covered in tuna casserole, she knows it’s going to be a very long night. Hazel is immediately arrested—after all, it’s her house and no one else was in the kitchen. Tru knows better and sets out to prove that there is a killer on the loose. Meanwhile, Tru’s father is missing, so she tasks Jace, her boyfriend, a policeman and Hazel’s son, to find her dad. Dewey Decimal, Tru’s tabby cat, gets in on the action, sharing clues that eventually help Tru to dig out the truth. With the help of Tru’s best friend Tori, Charlie, Tori’s boyfriend, and many other friends, Tru eventually solves the case.
VERDICT This cozy mystery full of books, romance, and a crime-solving cat will appeal to readers of Kate Carlisle’s “Bibliophile” mysteries.
