Books by Rita Mae Brown. His greatest feat was cutting four railroad tunnels through the Blue Ridge Mountains, a task begun in 1850 and completed eight years later. The first tunnel was west of Crozet: the Greenwood tunnel, 536 feet, and sealed after 1944, when a new tunnel was completed.

Rita Mae Brown is one of those authors that feels the need to instruct her audience on political and moral issues through the thoughts and ideas of her characters. I wish that she would do less of this as I figure I hold the diametrically opposite view from her Ayn Rand inspired version of rich bitch Libertarianism.

I've been reading Mrs. Murphy mysteries for years. Somehow I had missed this one so I was ecstatic to see it was a special price on Kindle for a limited time. I loved this one as much as I've loved the others. The characters make the book as much as the story line. It seemed to me Mrs. Murphy did a little more communicating to Harry (the main character) in helping solve the murders than in some of the previous books, which always makes me wonder what my own cats and dogs are trying to tell me about what they're finding on the farm. There is a bit of a twist in this story about Harry and her friends planning their reunion and discovering secrets about their classmates that sets this book apart from other Mrs. Murphy books. It's not a typical cozy mystery topic but very honest. The author usually uses her books and characters to impart what I take to be Rita Mae Brown's views. I thought she did an excellent job in this one.

A series of murders in a small Virginia town, are making everyone nervous as the main characters prepare for a 20th high school reunion. Events that took place 20 years previous are not forgotten, and old animosities receive new life. With the assistance of her three intelligent animals, the mystery is solved by the main character and her friends.

Well written, with an obvious love for the Southern Virginia countryside, RM Brown's stories are a delight to read. But what really captivates
is the way the animal characters are integrated into the story. Two cats, Mrs Murphy & Pewter, and a Welsh Corgi, Tucker, play an active role in solving mysterious murders in the small town of Crozet, Virginia. The main characters, who return in many of RM Brown's novels, are well developed, believable, and likable. With a keen eye for human foibles and weaknesses, and a wicked sense of humor, Brown's stories always satisfy.

Like all the Sneaky Pie Brown series the story is told from third person point of view with significant input from the main character, Mary Minor Hairsteen's, pets: Tee Tucker (a Welsh Corgi), Pewter (a fat grey cat), and Mrs. Murphy (a sleek tiger cat). Although this series is a murder mystery there is little if any graphic descriptions of gore or violence. The issue of sex does come up from time to time as adultery is a recurring theme in this novel, and the series as a whole, however all references to sex are pretty vague. In this installment of the series Mary Minor (nicknamed Harry) is getting ready for the 20th reunion of her 1980 graduating class from Crozette High School. Unfortunately someone is killing off all the persons voted most or best this that or the other. Harry needs to get to the bottom of the mystery before she falls victim to the killer. Per usual her pets come to the rescue at the last minute and save the day. While the story is a little formulaic, I still find myself working my way through the series because I like the characters. Rita Mae Brown is one of those authors that feels the need to instruct her audience on political and moral issues through the thoughts and ideas of her characters. I wish that she would do less of this as I figure I hold the diametrically opposite view from her Ayn Rand inspired version of rich bitch Libertarianism. I guess that I don't have to agree with the politics of the fictional characters that I read about any more than I have to agree with the persons I meet in real life.

Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen was feeling testy as her 20th high school reunion looms closer. When obnoxious male members of her class are murdered, Harry must delve into old memories and scandalous rumors to discover the murderer. On a personal front, Fair declares his intent to aggressively win Harry back; Harry learns to get past Fair and BoomBoom's betrayal; Miranda feels young again when an old flame, Tracy Raz, comes to town for their 50th reunion, rooming with Harry and helping around the farm; and Market is looking for love among the single women in town.
The people in Crozet attract me to these books even more then the mysteries do. I would wish that Brown wouldn't make killers out of some of the most likeable people, but some real-life killers were very charming. Just look at Ted Bundy. I felt sorry for the killer. Although murder wasn't a proper revenge, it was all too understandable considering the circumstances. The animals' actions were much more realistic than in CAT ON THE SCENT, the last Mrs. Murphy mystery, thank heavens. Okay, a cat coauthor isn't "realistic" either, but cats driving cars was beyond my capacity to accept.

Though carrying its fair share of smiles, this book treats a serious theme. I needn't give away the plot, but there is mistreatment, to say the least, of somebody who is different. Still, read it, and learn.

I could probably figure out everyone of these books pretty quickly. I read these because I am so in love with Mrs. Murphy, Pewter, T Tucker, Simon, Flat Face, and the horses. I think these animals can pretty well do anything. I think the humans are just humans who act silly and do silly things. They are all good books for cozy mysteries, and they are an excellent introduction to the power of animals.

When you read a mystery that is solved in large part by a tiger cat names Mrs. Murphy, a plump gray cat named Pewter and a Corgi named Tucker, you know its going to be fun. Rita Mae Browne also has other animal characters who live in the barn of "Harry" and Fair Hairsteen's farm. There is a possum who loves sweets, a blacksnake who hibernates at the top of the barn and an owl.

Mrs. Browne develops such interesting characters in her books. You become very interested in what they are doing and the part they play in the life of the small town of Crozet, Virginia. I recommend all of Mrs. Browne's Sneaky Pie mysteries; they are fun to read, interesting and you really can't figure out who the murderer is until its revealed in the last pages.
