    " As well it should be another good read. Mrs. Murphy was in her element with all the twist & turns in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 1/27/2014

    " Mystery featuring "Harry" Haristeen and her two cats and Welsh corgi mystery. Added by her three pets, "Harry" finds herself in middle of a mystery involving murder and behind the scenes activities by several people. Her pets, led by her cat, Mrs. Murphy, play a prominent role in the story with much dialogue between the animals. The story is set in rural present day Virginia featuring local characters and Southern manners. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 1/25/2014

    " I had a hard time suspending my disbelief with some of the animals' actions in this one, but I enjoyed the book as a whole. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgiann Hennelly | 1/25/2014

    " Things have been pretty exciting in Crozet Virginia. Just as the town starts to buzz over its civil war reenactment . a popular local man disappears. and no ones seen Tommy Van Allens single engine plane either- except for Mrs Murphy , who spotted it during a foggy evenings mousing hunt. But things really take an ugly turn when the town reenactacts the battle of Oak Ridge -and a participant ends up with three bullets in his back. While the clever tiger cat and her pals sift through clues that just don,t fit , more than a few locals fear that the scandal will force well hidden town secrets into the harsh light of day. And when Mrs Murphys relentless tracking puts her loved ones in danger, it takes more than a canny kitty and her team of animal sleuths to set things right again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/24/2014

    " Started this series many years ago...it's a guilty pleasure! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/14/2014

    " Mrs Murphy, Pewter, and Tee Tucker help unravel the mysteries of Crozet Virginia, with some interesting twists in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 1/4/2014

    " Set in Crozer, VA, various mrders seem to involve Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen. Part of the "horsy" set, she and her pets solve the mysteries. One of the fun parts of this series is that the animals talk among themselves and scheme to let Harry "know" helpful bits. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/31/2013

    " What a disappointment. Went from boring to just plain yucky. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Polly | 12/24/2013

    " Good story and relaxing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 11/13/2013

    " Still a fun read, although the thing with the animals got a little TOO whimsical before the end. Harry, the main character is still working at the post office. I like the different viewpoints about Civil War reenactment and the murder mystery was pretty interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Kennedy | 10/12/2013

    " Not the best Mrs Murphy book, but certainly one with a different ending, which may work to its disadvantage when you read a 'cozy mystery' book for certain tropes. Some people may feel disappointed that not everybody gets their just desserts in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Norma Druid | 9/25/2013

    " This is both fun and thought provoking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Felicia | 7/25/2013

    " "Harry was being humbled by life in its myriad forms." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 6/11/2013

    " A good book to read on a bus or airplane. Passes the time pleasantly "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 6/2/2013

    " Cute and fun reading how 2 cats and a dog solve a mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs.Y. Yeingst | 8/1/2012

    " These wonderful Mrs. Murphy mystery books are written from the point of view of two cats and a Welsh Corgi dog! I have read them all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 4/8/2012

    " enjoyable easy reading "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dharma | 3/10/2012

    " It was an easy read but seemed to move slowly into the true meat of the mystery. About 3/4 through the pace picked up. Nice that the ending didn't exactly tie things up neatly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 3/4/2012

    " Another excellent book by Rita and Sneaky Pie. I got to know a bit more of the town and visit with my old familiar characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 1/15/2012

    " I thoroughly enjoy this escapist series, as you must suspend reality as the animals are anthropomorpic. Great fun for animal and mystery lovers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roland | 8/18/2011

    " almost purrfect entertainment "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 7/16/2011

    " I would have to say 'Cat on the Scent' was not one of my favorite Mrs. Murphy mystery series which I usually really enjoy. Still liked it, but didn't love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 6/17/2011

    " Fun book. I have a little problem with some of the escapades of the animals. The descriptions of the people and countryside are enjoyable. This is the second Mrs. Murphy book I have read and I think I will weak out others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sallie | 5/25/2011

    " I do love Mrs. Murphy, Tucker and Pewter in these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 5/4/2011

    " I love this series and all the main characters in this series. I think this series could be like Murder, she wrote and become a tv show. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 4/16/2011

    " This series of light mysteries are a delight! You miss the characters when the story ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 11/2/2010

    " Started this series many years ago...it's a guilty pleasure! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Virginia | 9/11/2010

    " It was a really busy month, which means it's time for.....animal themed murder mysteries! I liked this at the time, but entering these reviews in 2010, I do not remember one iota of any of the plot. Good brainless reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 8/3/2010

    " This book explained more about the town's high school students. I enjoy how each book is a different perspective of the town. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roxann | 8/23/2009

    " Another quick read and a good mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy | 9/22/2008

    " Cute book - the cats and dogs can understand the people and talk to each other. So, they have the advantage in solving the mystery. Otherwise, the story was overly tedious and the characters not that interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 9/12/2008

    " Book 6 in the series. Same characters. A little darker because the murder involved teens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 5/28/2008

    " Same characters as her other books..delightful cats and dog. All the clues were there for the mystery to be figured out...a little darker because it was high school students in trouble. But still a good read. "

    " Mrs Murphy the cat, dan sahabat-sahabat Mrs Murphy (Tee Tucker dan si pemalas Pewter) membantu Harry memecahkan pembunuhan di kota kecilnya. "
