    This is a nice, cozy mystery. There?s a lot of fluffy extra that made the book drag a bit. The animals talking - but the people not understanding them - was a bit distracting but after I got use to it added to the charm. The mystery itself was good, I didn?t figure it out until nea...

    I am a sucker for the dead body books and this one was unique. You get to try and solve the mystery with the help of the assorted animals and it really works. My first but not my last. ...

    I keep forgetting how much fun this series is. And I'm sure the animals are getting sassier. ...

    Another in the series featuring Mary "Harry" Haristeen, her cat Mrs. Murphy, and her dog Tucker, this story has them solving the murder of a jockey following a very important race held at the former home of James and Dolly Madison. There are lots of suspects and lots of clues, and in s...

    The usual cast of characters is back in this next book in the series. When a jockey is killed at the steeplechase race, Harry, Mrs. Murphy, and Tucker lend the sheriff a hand in solving the mystery...after a few more people die along the way. Recommended. ...

    The thing I like best about this series is the continuing characters. This mystery is centered around the world of steeplechase so that?s interesting too, because I know nothing about that. ...

    I totally enjoyed listening to this quirky, little, light mystery. It was fun and different. I am a huge fan of animals and love the part both pets and wild animals played in the story. I love that the animals communicated w/each other. I enjoyed it all playing out among horse racing. ...

    Review first posted on My Blog. It's the day of the annual steeplechase and Mary 'Harry' Haristeen is enjoying helping down at the track with her dog, Tucker. It's a day that the entire town looks forward to and the races this day are good, except for an altercation between two of t...

    This book was a delightful read. And Rita Mae Brown's characters come to life on the page. As usual it is up to the animals to steer the humans in the right direction to solve these murders. The backdrop is a a Steeples chase. Also, something was mysteriously buried in one of the horse...

    You know how people are always looking for a light hearted read after a depressing and intellectually challenging book? This is the PERFECT (or should I say, PURRFECT) book for those situations. There isn't a whole lot of depth to this book, and the logical train of the thought get...

    I don't know what it is about these books but they are so addicting. They're terrible books. But I seriously cannot get enough of them. ...

    The annual steeplechase races at Montpelier, once the home of James and Dolley Madison, are the high point in the social calendar of the horse-mad Virginians of cozy Crozet. The race meet offers a cracking good time with old friends and a chance to get even--on the racecourse--with old...

    Even better than the last one, and this time, even though I had the murderer down to two possibilities pretty quickly (I suspect this was by design) I wasn't certain which one it was until just before the big reveal. I was disappointed in the ending because it seemed a little forced to...

    This book was a re-read for me. But reading about Harry Harristeen and her friends and pets is always interesting, even the second time around. This time there has been a murder following the Montpelier Steeplechase event. One of the jockeys is found at the end of the day in one of ...

    This was a nice light read. Think will try to pick up the other books for this series. It's interesting to read the two different conversations, one by the humans and the other by the animals. I liked the little bio of the cast of characters at the beginning of the book also, it helped...

    It is now five for five. Among my many reading goals, one is to read all the books in the 'Mrs. Murphy" series in chronological order. This story was especially good (although I've liked the previous four) or I am becoming more and more vested in Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, Pewter and their f...

    This is another delightful title in the Mrs. Murphy series, and I enjoyed it as much as the first four. I especially liked the details of steeplechasing in this novel, of which I knew nothing before, and so it was neat to learn about the dramas and illegalities that can go along with t...

    The beginning was a bit slow for me, as I'm not that interested in horse racing, but when the murders started and then the first clues - I was hooked! A very suspenseful book. I liked the chapters where the animals (primarily cats and dogs) do some digging (pun intended) on their own, ...

    The books get better and better. So far one of my favorites. Very compelling story, that made me finish the book super fast. I could not guess who it was up until the end. I caught myself more than once thinking about who might be the murder during the day. Maybe a little too many deta...

    Everyone in Crozet is excited about the upcoming steeplechase races. However, the murder of one of the jockeys puts a damper on things. As speculation runs wild, another jockey is murdered in a similar fashion. The police are at a loss as to who is committing murder in the sleepy littl...

    The story line was well-developed, a fresh mystery. Use of animals giving clues had me shouting to the humans to pay attention. Nice ...

    Ok, I'm going to do a standard review for the rest of the Mrs. Murphy books I read, because I really can't think of something smart to say about every single one of them. Actually, it's hard to come up with something smart to say about any one of them, because they are not really smart...
