Twelve Angry Librarians by Miranda James

What an amazing honor it was to binge read Miranda James' Twelve Angry Librarians last night. Waiting on the arrival of this one with baited breath, officially is releases on February 21st . It seems that Charlie and Diesel can not seem to keep there noses out of trouble! Boy do I love it. This was a really interesting mystery. I feel so many emotions when I read anything by Miranda James, by page 12 I was already in tears, a few chapters later filled with rage, anxiety gripped a few more chapters and then blessed with that perfectly timed mystery unravel and happy ending. Miranda James has long been a favorite author of mine and this beautifully written book is one to cherish.
Charlie is stressed out. The Southern Academic Libraries Association is holding this year’s annual meeting at Athena College. Since Charlie is the interim library director, he must deliver the welcome speech to all the visiting librarians. And as if that weren’t bad enough, the keynote address will be delivered by Charlie’s old nemesis from library school. It’s been thirty years since Charlie has seen Gavin Fong, and he’s still an insufferable know-it-all capable of getting under everyone’s skin. In his keynote, Gavin puts forth a most unpopular opinion: that degreed librarians will be obsolete in the academic libraries of the future. So when Gavin drops dead, no one seems too upset... But Charlie, who was seen having a heated argument with Gavin the day before, has jumped to the top of the suspect list. Now Charlie and Diesel must check out every clue to refine their search for the real killer among them before the next book Charlie reads comes from a prison library...

Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea and a cozy mystery review. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at karenmowen@gmail.com


  1. I've seen these books on Amazon and wanted to get into this series, I bet there's a ton of them! When I saw the name Miranda it threw me a minute since I kinda remembered it was a guy writing the series, right? Miranda is the pen name?

    1. Hi Tari, such a treat to have you pop over to my cozy site! Yes Dean James is aka Miranda James. He is one of my most favorite authors. He writes a cozy with such a unique spin and in a way that is so endearing. His characters are so true to life you feel apart of the story! I hope you will love the cat in the stacks series. This one is book 8 I believe.

  2. I enjoyed the first mystery in the series, but the one character seemed too good to be true (of course, it's fiction characters can be 100% stellar). My investigation showed the author is not a woman and since women have had to write under the guise of a man for centuries I was a little put out.

    I really enjoy your reviews of this series and may jump back in at some point.

    1. Dean is absolutely a wonderful man and I love his writing. Fun you should say that you did your investigation, I too did it when I was reading the first one because as I was reading it I thought, I know this author it sounds like Dean James and I was write. I so enjoy him and this series. He writes from a wonderful perspective and in a cozy from a male point of view is not only remarkable but love-able!
