Kurzbeschreibung

24. Juni 2014 Mrs. Murphy
NATIONAL BESTSELLER

Rita Mae Brown and her feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown return with an all-new mystery starring Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen, intrepid kitty sleuths Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and Tee Tucker, the ever-faithful crime-solving corgi. This time around, Harry and her animal friends track a killer whose trail has gone as cold as the weather in December.
 
NINE LIVES TO DIE
 
Winter has come to Crozet, Virginia, bringing with it a fresh blanket of snow. Harry and her husband, Fair, are hip deep in their usual end-of-the-year activities: distributing food to needy residents, and shopping for outfits for the Silver Linings youth organization’s annual fundraising gala. But buried beneath the white stuff are dark secrets from Crozet’s past—and Harry and her posse of pet detectives are determined to sniff them out.
 
Two Silver Linings mentors have been found dead in suspicious circumstances. If that weren’t enough to chill the bones of the locals, a pair of severed human fingers has turned up in a pencil jar in the bookkeeper’s office at St. Cyril’s church. What does this grisly display have to do with the mysterious disappearance of Harry’s voluptuous high school Latin teacher, a quarter of a century ago? Maybe nothing. But when the animals make another gruesome discovery in the woods behind Harry’s farm, it becomes clear that terrible crimes have been committed in Crozet—and somebody’s gone to great lengths to cover them up. It’s time to stop shoveling snow and start digging for clues.
 
The truth will be revealed. A cold case will be solved. And a twenty-five-year-old love triangle is about to get untangled. The weather outside may be frightful, but Harry and her four-legged friends refuse to be spooked off the case.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An old friend in great form 24. Juni 2014
Von Fuzzy's Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Bliss! The second cat mystery series that I read was Mrs. Murphy. From the first book onwards I enjoyed the highjinks of that wise cat, Tucker the corgi and Pewter the catitude queen. The humans in the series, from heroine Harry and her husband Fair have always seemed like good friends and I have looked forward to each successive chapter.
There were times in the more recent books when I felt that Rita Mae Brown(and dare I say Sneaky Pie) were getting a bit preachy about some social and political issues. It did not make me stop reading but it did dull some of the pleasure.
I am delighted to say that with NINE LIVES TO DIE, the dyanmic duo is back. I enjoyed this book so much that I read it in less than a day.
It is good to see my friends back in form and I would give this two paws up, five purrs and a rousing recommendation.

2.0 von 5 Sternen First sentence turn-off 25. Juni 2014
Von Lindag1946 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is perhaps my favorite series; however, the last few novels have evidenced none of the vivid descriptions of the natural environment that evoke the feeling of being in and sharing in the lovely Virginia town of Crozet. I have wondered if they were being penned, or if the author just became tired of the series and was unwilling to put much time into recent offerings. That saddened me. I was anxious to see if this had changed. When the first paragraph "renamed" Harry as Harriett, rather than Mary Minor, I became certain that this was a series that had been basically abandoned by the author. Sad. Anytime this changes, I will be back on board. Some of the most enjoyable reading I have ever encountered. Rita Mae Brown is a treasure.

4.0 von 5 Sternen She's Baaaaack! 29. Juni 2014
Von Book Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
RLB is on track again. I had almost given up on her books; the politics, preaching, rants, diatribes became a bigger part of her books than the actual plots. And the conversations between the animals are back too and I liked the addition of Odin.
All in all, I think her fans and new readers will not be disappointed in this great addition to the series.
Thanks RLB!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Skeletons and severed fingers 26. Juni 2014
Von cathairetic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
When Mrs. Murphy, Pewter, and Tucker (two cats and a dog) meet a coyote carrying off a skeletal human arm, they manage to snag a beautiful gold bracelet that falls from it. This will be their Christmas present for their "Mom," Mary Minor Haristeen. They find the rest of the skeleton in the roots of a blown over walnut tree. They manage to get the attention of Harry (Mary Minor) and her husband, Fair, who drive up the mountain in response to Tucker's barking and the howling of the coyote. This skeleton is one of the mysteries in this book. The second is who killed two wealthy businessmen who contributed greatly to a local children's charity.

Some readers think that author Rita Mae Brown is often too preachy about causes she likes to mention in her novels. I do not think she does this in this one. It's true, there are a few minor mentions, but I found any opinions expressed by the characters to be just common sense. I really enjoyed the interactions of all the animal characters and since I live in Virginia I found her comments about living in Virginia very funny and too true.

For once I guessed who did what and that is very unusual for me. I highly recommend this entry in the series. It is also interesting to see how "the other half" lives. I liked reading that Harry doesn't want to spend any money on the clothing she needs for fancy fund raisers, but she wears the most expensive perfume in the world. Enjoy!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Better than the last few but not the genius that was the earlier volumes of the series 2. Juli 2014
Von Lynne R. Gregory - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an improvement on the two volumes which immediately proceeded this release but, there are several weaknesses that keep this book from being the brilliant storytelling of the early Mrs. Murphy and Tucker escapades. In the earlier works Rita Mae Brown gave the reader the experience of "being there" in the story. Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, and all the other animals seemed so lifelike as to almost expect a bark or meow. This present work lacks that weaving of the tale so that the person reading leaves the everyday world and is suddenly transported to the town of Crozet, Virginia.

The story is not a total lost but in comparing this work to the early works of Ms. Brown I would use the comparison of seeing still photographs of a movie against seeing the actual movie - you get the story line but, not the sense of being in the 'action".
