    " I love this series. It's like visiting with old friends. Comfortable yet something new every book. I also love the animals' take on what's going on. Rita Mae Brown is spot on- she clearly is an animal person herself. "

    " The animals didn't play as big a role this time, and RMB is very preachy about healthcare, cancer, etc. "

    " I have officially outgrown this author and her simplistic views. Loved the early books and characters but time to move on. "

    " I always enjoy a visit with the talking animals, but the humans in this one were extraordinarily preachy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 5/1/2011

    " A short Mrs. Murphy mystery. Enjoyable as usual but weighted by Harry's brush with cancer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trudi | 4/27/2011

    " Mrs. Murphy, Pewter and Tucker once again steal the show, or in this case, story, from their human companion, giving the reader all the clues needed to solve the crime as their slower human plods ever onward till she is able to solve the mystery! "

    " I always enjoy reading these mysteries for light-harted laughter at the antics of the animals and the characters that have appeared in all Ms. Brown's novels. However, I found her very preachy in this novel which took away some of my enjoyment. "
