"There's nothing Athena College librarian Charlie Harris likes better than curling up with a good book--except maybe curling up with his Maine Coon cat, Diesel. But when the library's abrasive new director is put out of circulation, both Charlie and Diesel will have to clear a friend when the evidence is stacked against her ... Springtime in Mississippi is abloom with beauty, but the library's employees are too busy worrying to stop and smell the flowers. The new library director, Oscar Reilly, is a brash, unfriendly Yankee who's on a mission to cut costs--and his first targets are the archive and the rare book collection. As annoying as a long-overdue book, Reilly quickly raises the hackles of everyone on staff, including Charlie's fiery friend Melba--whom Reilly wants to replace with someone younger. But his biggest offense is declaring all four-legged creatures banned from the stacks. With enemies aplenty, the suspect list is long when Reilly's body is discovered in the library. But things take a turn for the worse when a threatening email throws suspicion on Melba. Charlie is convinced that his friend is no murderer, especially when he catches sight of a menacing stranger lurking around the library. Now he and Diesel will have to read between the lines, before Melba is shelved under "G" for guilty.."-- Provided by publisher

Most enjoyable and I liked the way the mystery and the murders built up to the denouement.This is the seventh of the Cat in the Stacks mysteries and the first one I've read. Librarians, books, cats and a preoccupation with meals? What's not to like? The Southern American flavour is very evident.My only beef really is with the cover of this large print edition,cute and attractive as it is. Charlie's cat Diesel is a Maine Coon cat; a very large long-haired tabby, not a sleek black and white model.

Easy read for the summer. I enjoyed the book. The only negative item would be that the main event of murder did not occur until the book was past 100 pages, which was primarily due to the author taking time to really establish her characters.
