The famous Saddlebred show in Shelbyville, Kentucky, is the perfect opportunity for remarried newlyweds Harry and Fair Haristeen to finally go on their long-delayed (second) honeymoon: a chance to combine business and pleasure, as well as to drop in on some old friends.

Mrs. Murphy (a tabby cat), Tucker (a Corgi), and Pewter (a fat gray kitty), are all along for the trip as well, and when their hosts are robbed the very first day they arrive, Mrs. Murphy pounces right on solving the mystery.

Soon, however, they are all sidetracked by even bigger crimes: a $200,000 mare owned by a young film star is stolen in broad daylight, and worst of all, a groom is found murdered.

Clearly, winning at Shelbyville is secondary; first prize is survival.

Listener Opinions

    " I did not enjoy this story. In fact, I didn't even finish the book, which is extremely rare for me. It's a shame, because it has all the things that I like: cats, mystery, a book written by a cat. But I found the writing to be sub-par. The dialogue felt unrealistic, very forced. And the story itself didn't flow for me; it felt stilted. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dymphna | 1/31/2014

    " I am really disappointed in Ms. Brown. I've enjoyed her books for quite a while now, but since she now apparently feels it necessary to pepper her character's conversations with one sided political non-discussion, I will be forced to look elsewhere for reading material. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 1/30/2014

    " Cute idea, but the pet characters detract rather than add to the book. Twice as many characters to remember, too much contrived kitty brassiness. "

    " I loved the way Rita Mae Brown writes a mystery from the animal's point of view. So often I wonder what the animals would say/think if they could tell us what was going on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 1/26/2014

    " This book was not my cup of tea although it wasn't an awful book or story. If it hadn't been given to me, I would never have chosen it myself. First of all, it seemed rather odd to have the animals talking to each other and helping to solve the mystery. At least the animals weren't talking to the people and the people understood them. It just didn't seem to go with the seriousness of the crimes committed - a couple of murders and talking animals? It was also set in a world I have no interest in and therefore could not tell you if it was accurately portrayed. This setting was the world of saddlebred horses and the shows they attend. But, it was well written so I won't bash it. It just wasn't interesting to me. "

    " very good mystery, cute animals but not enough depth to the story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Ferrari | 1/11/2014

    " A fun read that became more fun when I saw the name of Paris, KY, where friends live. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Burks | 1/8/2014

    " Very quick read, and I loved that it was centered around the American Saddlebred. Wish she'd used proper terminology, such as "slow gait" and "rack" instead of "slow rack" and "fast rack"; and the big show in Lexington, VA is the Bonnie Blue Horse Show, not Bonnie Bell. Little nitpicky things, I know, but they make a difference to someone who's involved with Saddlebreds. Still fun to read, and it was fun to try to figure out if she was depicting certain owners/trainers with her characters. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 1/8/2014

    " Mrs Murphy mystery - great as always "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephen | 1/8/2014

    " While it still wasn't a bad book, I didn't care for this one as much, because it doesn't take place in Crozet, but in Kentucky. If you aren't a fan of horses, you won't like this one as much either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 1/5/2014

    " I LOVE this series :oP. Best thing ever for rainy days and yummy snacks or trips or vacations! Total fluff, not meant to be taken seriously obviously, but I love the setting, the characters, the twists, everything. :) YAY!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 12/16/2013

    " There are a lot of characters in this book...gets a little confusing at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 11/18/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarahanne | 11/15/2013

    " Classic Rita Mae Brown. More detail than I ever needed about horse breeding, but a fun read and great characters - especially the non human ones. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 11/13/2013

    " I didn't enjoy this Mrs. Murphy book as much as some of the others. Unlike most of the books it does not take place in Crozet and I missed some of the recurring characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 11/7/2013

    " Bk. #16. Harry and Fare help solve a mystery in Kentucky. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bev | 4/24/2013

    " Love all Sneaky Pie series. Missed the regular characters in this book tho. Great for light reading and good entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/23/2013

    " Rita Mae Brown has created a cast of characters to care about, both human and animal. In this outing, a major horse show provides cover for a ring of horse breeders involved in smuggling in Mexican laborers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Jo Evans | 10/20/2012

    " Always fun to see what they are up to. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/26/2012

    " Talking animals are not my cup of tea, but it was a book discussion title, so I persevered. I read the first one in the series and it was better, but still not my thing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Georgene | 12/29/2011

    " One of the later Sneaky Pie Brown mysteries. Rita Mae Brown gets more and more "preachy" in her stories. She should stick to mysteries instead of shoving her "politically correct" views down the throats of her readers. I am no longer a fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 11/15/2011

    " Mystery + Animal Lover= Rita Mae Brown's cozy mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Curtis | 8/20/2011

    " I love this series but this was not one of my favorites. I thought the ending was sad and Harry's birthday celebration just didn't cheer me up. While I enjoyed the new characters I missed everyone in Crozet but you can't have every book take place there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 6/2/2011

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

    " Very nice addition to the series. "

    " Good enough for road reading, but pretty far from being a favorite. I had some trouble keeping the characters straight (may be more my problem than the book because I was traveling). I hated the monkey. So glad that repugnant character will not be continuing forward in the series. "

    " A mystery that is a fast read about the famous Saddle bred horse show which is held in Kentucky, Harry and Fair are on their "honeymoon" with their pets, two cats and a dog. Theft, murder,and poison are part of the mix. I enjoyed the book. Missed the familiar characters from Crozet. "
