to her bookmobile, Words on Wheels, to collect allies and
rally library support throughout Catalpa Springs,
However, Cleo soon rolls into trouble. A major benefactor
known for his eccentric DIY projects requests all

his plans. She knows she should when she discovers him
bludgeoned and evidence points to her best friend, Mary-
Sure of Mary-Rose’s innocence, Cleo applies her
librarian’s sleuthing skills to the case, assisted by
friends, family, and the dapper antiquarian bookseller
everyone keeps calling her boyfriend. Evidence stacks up,
but a killer is overdue to strike again. With lives and
her library on the line, Cleo must shift into high gear
to close the book on murder in Better Off Read, the
charming Bookmobile series debut by Nora Page.
