    Not a review. These notes are for my own reference and may contain spoilers! Reread on audio. Takes place August through October (2001?) Crozet is preparing for the 50th reunion of the class of 1950, and the 20th reunion of the class of 1980. Harry is in that class, so she is...

    The thing you have to know about Rita Mae Brown is that she is a social activist first and a writer second. If you do not know this going into her books, you are going to find them preachy. The cats and dogs in her stories talk to each other (though not to humans), and she will oft...

    The high school reunion part (which is the main story) was a bit thin, but the characters and the story of their lives was a lot of fun. Of course, the animals solve it - again. I'm really reading these more for the small town of Crozet and the pets than the mystery at this point. ...

    A high school reunion should be fun, unless, of course, you are on the planning committee. But the reunion itself should be all about catching up with old friends, and maybe even making new ones. However, when death attends, uninvited, fun goes out the window. An innocuous incognito...

    I really liked this entry in the Southern set mystery series with the animals, most notably Pewter and Mrs. Murphy the cats, and Tee Tucker, the main character's pets figuring prominently in the series. Harry(the main character) is on the committee to put together her 1980 20th anniver...

    I gave up on this series a few years ago as it had totally lost its shine so it was nice to revisit one of the earlier books when the series was still quite good. ...

    This mystery revolves around the 20th high school reunion for Harry and Susan and friends. It?s fun to explore some of their backstory. And the animals help save the day as usual. Good mystery. ...

    As you know I am a great fan of Rita Mae Brown. I enjoyed the charm of country living and loving devoted animals. Her books sooth me. This one did. She also has a Sister Jane series when I can find them. ...

    I have read a good portion of the Mrs. Murphy series and have enjoyed them all. They are wonderful light reading and Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie Brown write with a lovely sense of humor. The characters are engaging and the you always learn a little something about the south with every book...

    Pawing Through the Past is the eighth entry in the Mrs. Murphy series. It is a bit darker than her previous titles with some trigger issues that may bother some readers (view spoiler)[ in particular, mentions of a past gang-rape later in the book (hide spoiler)] . This particular...

    Another enjoyable light mystery. I love that the animals (Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, and Pewter) uncover clues and often solve the mystery before the humans ("Harry" - Mary Harristeen and her friends and neighbors). This one revolved around a 20th high school reunion. Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie...

    The power of bullying can leave detrimental and lasting effects on a person. This book was just another example of this but on a more mental level. ...

    This was another good story with 3 of my favorite characters: Mrs. Murphy, Tucker and Pewter. This tale revolves around Harry's high school reunion and I was amused that her 2 cats and dog went along with her to the school. I can't even imagine the chaos that would ensue if I brought m...

    I almost didn?t figure out the killer?s identity in this Mrs. Murphy title, and I had a lot of fun trying to solve this mystery. The time has come for Harry?s 20-year high school reunion, and along with the arrivals of classmates from far away, murder descends upon the Virginia t...

    The general mystery story was good, but it was like the animals were a strange addition rather than a central part of the plot. I like the storyline, and could easily follow it by reading the books before or after this one, I don't know whether the distraction of animals who talk to on...

    Harry is keeping busy with running the Post Office in Crozet, doing chores on her small farm, and helping to plan her 20th class reunion. When she and other members of her graduating class receive anonymous mailings with 'You'll never grow old' on them, Harry takes it as a compliment. ...

    Better than the last one, but still rather odd. Brown does not hesitate to touch the issues of the day, and at least in this story, the animals are a lot less philosophical and more like cats and dogs! ...
