    " 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 2/14/2014

    " I really enjoy mysteries by this author. They aren't gruesome, just interesting and fun. I also enjoy the inclusion of animals and their discussion of insights into human psychology. Those can be hilarious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 2/5/2014

    " I usually love the Mrs. Murphy stories, but this one contained too much American History. If you aren't into history, don't pick up this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 2/4/2014

    " An old body is found under a hearth on Mulberry Row, and somehow it's connected to current murders. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy Whitlow | 1/28/2014

    " This mystery involved a murder that occured in the 1800s. There was a little bit of history (I'm not sure how accurate) thrown into the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pearl Drolet | 1/16/2014

    " I liked this book. The used of the dog and cats as part of the story is a nice twist. The characters a likeable and well developed. The plot line was interesting and not predictable. I would definitely recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graceann | 1/10/2014

    " My favorite things: Cats, historic places and feisty protagonists, all come together to make a fun and interesting mystery. There's nothing very deep here, but that's not to say that it isn't enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 12/17/2013

    " I love Rita Mae Brown, but why why why, did she have to write a book with talking animals? Its so heart-breaking for me. I really respect her as a writer and a (maverick) but I can't stand talking cats! who solve murder mysteries "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joni | 5/10/2013
