A Mrs. Murphy Mystery
by Rita Mae Brown
Readers who enjoy their cozy mysteries with a bit of whimsy can’t go wrong with Rita Mae Brown’s series featuring Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen and (vet husband) Pharamond aka Fair. Yes, some animals talk in these pages and are smarter than the humans, and there are even some illustrations, something that adult readers don’t often find in their books; these add to the charm. I have read the novels in this series from the first one.
As usual, there is trouble in Crozet, Virginia. A vet is dead as is a ninety year old town resident. What happened? Are their deaths linked? How are some letters important? And, topically, what part does stolen Ketamine play in the proceedings? Follow along with animals and humans as the case is solved. This title will allow readers to while away a few peaceful hours.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group – Ballantine, Bantam for this title. All opinions are my own.
