Twelve Angry Librarians Book Review
Charlie is stressed out because as the interim library director at Athena College, he's going to have to give the welcome speech for the Southern Academic Libraries Association conference, which is being hosted in Athena this year. As if this weren't stressful enough for him, the keynote speaker is Charlie's nemesis from library school.
It's been 30 years since Charlie has seen his nemesis, Gavin Fong, but he is still the same know-it-all arrogant man Charlie remembers, and he still manages to get under everyone's skin.
In his keynote speech, Gavin shares an unpopular opinion - that librarians will be obsolete in the academic libraries of the future. When Gavin dies, nobody seems too upset about it.
Charlie was seen having an argument with Gavin the day before he dies, and, as a result, makes the suspect list. Now Charlie has to figure out who really killed Gavin...
My Thoughts: As I stated at the beginning of the post, I absolutely love the Cat in the Stacks Mystery series.
With most cozy mysteries, you hear about the murder towards the very beginning of the book. In Twelve Angry Librarians, however, the murder occurs later on in the book. I enjoyed reading the backstory quite a bit. I felt this made the book unique. In this book, we also get to "see" the murder - don't worry, it's nothing gruesome - and I enjoyed this as well.
I love that the Cat in the Stacks Mystery series is from a male's perspective - it makes the series a very unique one, indeed. As always, Diesel is charming with his cat antics as well.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves cozy mysteries and cats!
I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
