    I love this fun and exciting series!! Probable Claws by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown is the twenty-seventh book of the Mrs. Murphy cozy mystery series. I read the first novel in this series, Wish You Were Here, many years ago and was immediately drawn by all the character...

    I've been a long-time fan of this series set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia which features both human and animal characters. Rita Mae Brown even gives writing credit to her cat, Sneaky Pie Brown, haha. But it looks like I stopped at book #20 in the series, so it was a pleasure...

    I love myself some Mrs Murphy mysteries. All of the animals crack me up on their adventure. I want a "Fair" of my very own :). Great mystery to solve in this latest RMB novel. I have to admit she stumped me to the very end this time. I enjoy reading her reflections back to the 18th cen...

    Another recently released cozy mystery in the Mrs. Murphy series. I love that her series features Mary Minor "Harry" Haristean and her menagerie of dogs, cats, and horses. The dogs and cats have the fantastic ability to talk to one another and always seem one step ahead of Harry when s...

    My favorite characters continue to be Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, Pewter, the barn critters--and the spider! And I enjoyed the present story line with Harry and her friends, especially Cooper this time--more than the eighteenth century story line, though I'm impressed by all the research! (I'...

    "Harry" and Deputy Cynthia Cooper watch a motorcyclist gun down architect Gary Gardner. With little to go on besides the fact the motorcyclist wore a black jacket, the police are grateful for any clues--even those provided by Harry's pets. Gary kept building codes for each year, but th...

    As a cat lover, I adore this series, but I do have a beef. Brown has too many animals and people, and too much conversation among the animals. The animals seem to act as a Greek chorus in explaining what is happening. Brown does use italics when the animals are speaking, but this disru...

    I have been enjoying this series from the start so this is the 27th Sneaky Pie I have read. The draw for me is the present day, in every book. Like a letter from home, I look forward to finding out how life is going for Harry and the animals and various friends and family, of course. M...

    Rita Mae Brown's Mrs. Murphy books are always so good to read! Each book is like a visit with old friends that you have not seen in a while...Harry gets involved with the unexplained murder of her architect friend, Gary Gardner, who is designing a new shed for Harry...and is shot to de...

    A motorcycle roars to a stop in Crozet and the rider shoots at a group of three people standing outside a storefront. And Harry is drawn into another murder investigation. What is the motivation for the killing? Is a second killing linked to the first? Mrs. Murphy, Pewter, and Tucker a...

    I received an ARC from Netgalley and I'm glad I did. I love this series and I eagerly await the next. I normally don't like books that switch back and forth in time but Rita Mae Brown does a fabulous job. I feel like these people are my friends and of course who doesn't love the animal...

    Sneaky Pie, this post is for you. I really enjoy the Mrs. Murphy series, but I have one concern. While each of the characters are engaging and the mystery intriguing, I wish that you would curl up on Rita Maw Brown's lap, purr engagingly, and whisper into her ear that she needs to tone...

    No wonder this series is so enduring (27 entries so far!), it?s as cozy as a cozy mystery can be and clever to boot. At first, I thought the talking animals would be over-the-top cute but they added a welcomed touch of insight and humor to the process of figuring out who-dun-it. And ...

    I read about half of this book and found myself not caring much how it ended. The modern day murder mystery part was mildly engaging, but I felt like I was handicapped in not having read previous books in the series. I kept having to refer to the list of characters in the front and eve...

    Well what can l say? The animals were the same as usual. Their is a change in Harry and Fair's life a nice one. The 18th century story line was for me was interesting and l am looking forward to reading the next book as it wraps up. The modern day mysteries was okay. But the spider sto...

    This was a decent mystery, although the animals were not nearly as involved as in the past. Many of the characters that we have come to know and love weren't in the book either, and I feel that the writing style has changed some. Maybe I haven't read one of these books in a while, but ...

    Harry and her animal friends are once again witness to a murder. As they work to solve the crime the story goes back in time to the time of slavery and how the area was during that time. Another great book by RMB and Sneaky Pie. ...

    It's been many years since I last read a Rita Mae/Sneaky Pie Brown mystery. One aspect remains the same - in this world, cats and dogs can talk to each other and understand (to varying degrees) what humans say, but the humans are unaware of this. The cats (in particular) usually help s...

    Probable Claws continues the 18th century tale from the previous book along with a modern day mystery. Harry, her Corgi Tucker, fat cat Pewter and even tempered cat Mrs. Murphy are hunting a killer again in the 27th entry in the long-running series. When a motorcycler shoots Harry?...

    A very quick read even with two stories going on through the book. I haven't read this series before, so don't know if this is normal for the series. It takes place in present time with "Harry" Haristeen and her pets who also have dialogue throughout the book. There is also a story goi...

    I love myself some Mrs Murphy mysteries. All of the animals crack me up on their adventure. I want a "Fair" of my very own :). Great mystery to solve in this latest RMB novel. I have to admit she stumped me to the very end this time. I enjoy reading her reflections back to the 18th cen...

    Another recently released cozy mystery in the Mrs. Murphy series. I love that her series features Mary Minor "Harry" Haristean and her menagerie of dogs, cats, and horses. The dogs and cats have the fantastic ability to talk to one another and always seem one step ahead of Harry when s...

    My favorite characters continue to be Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, Pewter, the barn critters--and the spider! And I enjoyed the present story line with Harry and her friends, especially Cooper this time--more than the eighteenth century story line, though I'm impressed by all the research! (I'...

    As a cat lover, I adore this series, but I do have a beef. Brown has too many animals and people, and too much conversation among the animals. The animals seem to act as a Greek chorus in explaining what is happening. Brown does use italics when the animals are speaking, but this disru...

    I have been enjoying this series from the start so this is the 27th Sneaky Pie I have read. The draw for me is the present day, in every book. Like a letter from home, I look forward to finding out how life is going for Harry and the animals and various friends and family, of course. M...

    Rita Mae Brown's Mrs. Murphy books are always so good to read! Each book is like a visit with old friends that you have not seen in a while...Harry gets involved with the unexplained murder of her architect friend, Gary Gardner, who is designing a new shed for Harry...and is shot to de...

    I received an ARC from Netgalley and I'm glad I did. I love this series and I eagerly await the next. I normally don't like books that switch back and forth in time but Rita Mae Brown does a fabulous job. I feel like these people are my friends and of course who doesn't love the animal...

    Sneaky Pie, this post is for you. I really enjoy the Mrs. Murphy series, but I have one concern. While each of the characters are engaging and the mystery intriguing, I wish that you would curl up on Rita Maw Brown's lap, purr engagingly, and whisper into her ear that she needs to tone...

    No wonder this series is so enduring (27 entries so far!), it?s as cozy as a cozy mystery can be and clever to boot. At first, I thought the talking animals would be over-the-top cute but they added a welcomed touch of insight and humor to the process of figuring out who-dun-it. And ...

    I read about half of this book and found myself not caring much how it ended. The modern day murder mystery part was mildly engaging, but I felt like I was handicapped in not having read previous books in the series. I kept having to refer to the list of characters in the front and eve...

    Well what can l say? The animals were the same as usual. Their is a change in Harry and Fair's life a nice one. The 18th century story line was for me was interesting and l am looking forward to reading the next book as it wraps up. The modern day mysteries was okay. But the spider sto...

    This was a decent mystery, although the animals were not nearly as involved as in the past. Many of the characters that we have come to know and love weren't in the book either, and I feel that the writing style has changed some. Maybe I haven't read one of these books in a while, but ...

    Harry and her animal friends are once again witness to a murder. As they work to solve the crime the story goes back in time to the time of slavery and how the area was during that time. Another great book by RMB and Sneaky Pie. ...

    Let's start by saying that Mrs. Murphy (tiger cat), Tucker (corgi), and even new recruit Pirate (Irish wolfhound puppy) are amazingly patient with Pewter (fat gray cat). Just saying! Harry Haristeen is working with architect Gary Gardner on improvements to her barn and workspace, an...

    It's been many years since I last read a Rita Mae/Sneaky Pie Brown mystery. One aspect remains the same - in this world, cats and dogs can talk to each other and understand (to varying degrees) what humans say, but the humans are unaware of this. The cats (in particular) usually help s...

    Sneaky Pie, this post is for you. I really enjoy the Mrs. Murphy series, but I have one concern. While each of the characters are engaging and the mystery intriguing, I wish that you would curl up on Rita Maw Brown's lap, purr engagingly, and whisper into her ear that she needs to tone...

    No wonder this series is so enduring (27 entries so far!), it?s as cozy as a cozy mystery can be and clever to boot. At first, I thought the talking animals would be over-the-top cute but they added a welcomed touch of insight and humor to the process of figuring out who-dun-it. And ...

    This was a decent mystery, although the animals were not nearly as involved as in the past. Many of the characters that we have come to know and love weren't in the book either, and I feel that the writing style has changed some. Maybe I haven't read one of these books in a while, but ...

    Harry and her animal friends are once again witness to a murder. As they work to solve the crime the story goes back in time to the time of slavery and how the area was during that time. Another great book by RMB and Sneaky Pie. ...

    Another recently released cozy mystery in the Mrs. Murphy series. I love that her series features Mary Minor "Harry" Haristean and her menagerie of dogs, cats, and horses. The dogs and cats have the fantastic ability to talk to one another and always seem one step ahead of Harry when s...

    My favorite characters continue to be Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, Pewter, the barn critters--and the spider! And I enjoyed the present story line with Harry and her friends, especially Cooper this time--more than the eighteenth century story line, though I'm impressed by all the research! (I'...

    Let's start by saying that Mrs. Murphy (tiger cat), Tucker (corgi), and even new recruit Pirate (Irish wolfhound puppy) are amazingly patient with Pewter (fat gray cat). Just saying! Harry Haristeen is working with architect Gary Gardner on improvements to her barn and workspace, an...

    It's been many years since I last read a Rita Mae/Sneaky Pie Brown mystery. One aspect remains the same - in this world, cats and dogs can talk to each other and understand (to varying degrees) what humans say, but the humans are unaware of this. The cats (in particular) usually help s...

    I received an ARC from Netgalley and I'm glad I did. I love this series and I eagerly await the next. I normally don't like books that switch back and forth in time but Rita Mae Brown does a fabulous job. I feel like these people are my friends and of course who doesn't love the animal...

    Sneaky Pie, this post is for you. I really enjoy the Mrs. Murphy series, but I have one concern. While each of the characters are engaging and the mystery intriguing, I wish that you would curl up on Rita Maw Brown's lap, purr engagingly, and whisper into her ear that she needs to tone...

    No wonder this series is so enduring (27 entries so far!), it?s as cozy as a cozy mystery can be and clever to boot. At first, I thought the talking animals would be over-the-top cute but they added a welcomed touch of insight and humor to the process of figuring out who-dun-it. And ...

    Well what can l say? The animals were the same as usual. Their is a change in Harry and Fair's life a nice one. The 18th century story line was for me was interesting and l am looking forward to reading the next book as it wraps up. The modern day mysteries was okay. But the spider sto...

    This was a decent mystery, although the animals were not nearly as involved as in the past. Many of the characters that we have come to know and love weren't in the book either, and I feel that the writing style has changed some. Maybe I haven't read one of these books in a while, but ...

    Harry and her animal friends are once again witness to a murder. As they work to solve the crime the story goes back in time to the time of slavery and how the area was during that time. Another great book by RMB and Sneaky Pie. ...

    "Harry" Harristeen lives in Crozet, Virginia with her veternarian husband Fair and her assortment of animals, including her felines Pewter and Mrs. Murphy and her Corgi Tucker. She has decided to build a new work shed and she's hired architect Gary Gardner, a good friend, to build it. ...

    I don?t recall how I first discovered the Mrs. Murphy series but I have loved it from that very first read. Mysteries are my favourite kind of book, and as an animal lover, especially kitties, it was immediately appealing. Rita Mae Brown?s writing instantly sucks you in and makes t...

    Let's start by saying that Mrs. Murphy (tiger cat), Tucker (corgi), and even new recruit Pirate (Irish wolfhound puppy) are amazingly patient with Pewter (fat gray cat). Just saying! Harry Haristeen is working with architect Gary Gardner on improvements to her barn and workspace, an...

    It's been many years since I last read a Rita Mae/Sneaky Pie Brown mystery. One aspect remains the same - in this world, cats and dogs can talk to each other and understand (to varying degrees) what humans say, but the humans are unaware of this. The cats (in particular) usually help s...

    #27 in the Mrs. Murphy mystery series featuring Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen and her pets Mrs. Murphy, Pewter and Tucker set in Albemarle County, Virginia. It is a double story: a murder mystery set in modern times (opens just before Christmas, 2016) and a continuing story of character...

    Probable Claws continues the 18th century tale from the previous book along with a modern day mystery. Harry, her Corgi Tucker, fat cat Pewter and even tempered cat Mrs. Murphy are hunting a killer again in the 27th entry in the long-running series. When a motorcycler shoots Harry?...

    A very quick read even with two stories going on through the book. I haven't read this series before, so don't know if this is normal for the series. It takes place in present time with "Harry" Haristeen and her pets who also have dialogue throughout the book. There is also a story goi...

    Harry and her friends witness a brazen murder of a friend and architect. There doesn?t seem to be a reason, until Deputy Cynthia Cooper with sometimes welcome help from Harry start their investigation. Naturally, Harry?s four-footed friends, Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, and Pewter try to f...

    I am a "frequent flier" when it comes to the Rita Mae Brown mysteries. This one took a different track with intertwining two stories, one set in the present, involving a drive by shooting to which Harry is a witness, and the other being historical in nature, dating back to Virginia a...

    I always love Harry, Mrs. Murphy, and the rest of the clan, so it's always a treat to me when a new installment in this series comes out. I was a bit confused when she first started the chapters from the 1700's; I couldn't see how they added to the story and it was a bit startling to b...

    I've been a long-time fan of this series set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia which features both human and animal characters. Rita Mae Brown even gives writing credit to her cat, Sneaky Pie Brown, haha. But it looks like I stopped at book #20 in the series, so it was a pleasure...

    I love myself some Mrs Murphy mysteries. All of the animals crack me up on their adventure. I want a "Fair" of my very own :). Great mystery to solve in this latest RMB novel. I have to admit she stumped me to the very end this time. I enjoy reading her reflections back to the 18th cen...

    Another recently released cozy mystery in the Mrs. Murphy series. I love that her series features Mary Minor "Harry" Haristean and her menagerie of dogs, cats, and horses. The dogs and cats have the fantastic ability to talk to one another and always seem one step ahead of Harry when s...

    My favorite characters continue to be Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, Pewter, the barn critters--and the spider! And I enjoyed the present story line with Harry and her friends, especially Cooper this time--more than the eighteenth century story line, though I'm impressed by all the research! (I'...

    As a cat lover, I adore this series, but I do have a beef. Brown has too many animals and people, and too much conversation among the animals. The animals seem to act as a Greek chorus in explaining what is happening. Brown does use italics when the animals are speaking, but this disru...
