Read or Alive (Bookmobile Mystery 3)
Cleo Watkins is back and more excited than ever thanks to a fair by the Georgian Antiquarian Book Society. Her excitement is quickly threatened by a smooth-talking snake-oil salesman making his way around the fair and conning good book-loving folk out of rare editions. When the con man is found dead, those closest to Cleo are at the top of the suspect list, her cousin Dot having been conned out of a first edition and her gentleman friend Henry being eyed as guilty by the sheriff. She knows both are innocent, but can she prove it before either gets arrested?
Nora Page delights yet again with Read or Alive, which blends the love of books with an intriguing murder mystery and a sassy sleuth. Cleo is a delight in every way, with her vocal personality, caring nature, her dedication to books, and the way she speaks her mind.
