Murdermobile (A Portland Bookmobile Mystery) by B.B. Cantwell

Murdermobile (A Portland Bookmobile Mystery) by B.B. Cantwell

It’s pre-“Portlandia” Portland, when bookmobiles still roamed the Earth. When the retired head librarian is found dead in the City Library’s bookmobile, it’s no longer business as usual for fiery-haired librarian-on-wheels Hester Freelove McGarrigle. Does the murder have something to do with the wacko book-banning group with which the old woman was entangled? It’s up to Hester and her dishy, trail-running, pizza-obsessed neighbor, Detective Nate Darrow, to chase clues all over Oregon’s quirky Rose City. Their mutual connection with Nathaniel Hawthorne, along with Hester’s upchucking Maine Coon cat, build the romantic fizz in this cozy mystery spiked with humor and an authentic Northwest sense of place. Fasten your seatbelt -- and hold tight to your armload of books -- for the flash-bang ending high atop Crown Point in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Want great literature? Read "War and Peace." Want a rollicking good read for a weekend or vacation? Try this debut novel from one of Portland’s last bookmobile librarians and her travel-writer husband, writing together under the pen name B.B. Cantwell.
