4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, but not the best Mrs. Murphy mystery!, 26 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Cat on the Scent (Hardcover)
I bought this the day it came out and read it immediately, as I do with all of Rita Mae Brown's books -- and of course I loved it because of Mrs. Murphy, Pewter (who reminds me of my kitty Jasper), Tucker, Harry and the whole gang, and of course the comfort and homey feeling of Crozet that always comes through in these books. I withheld 1 star because one of the things I have always loved about RMB's writing, and which is missing in this book, is the assumption that her audience is intelligent enough to figure out the subtleties and nuances without her having to spell them out. I was bothered by the few instances in this one where the reader is TOLD something rather than being allowed to have our imaginations figure it out. Is RMB aiming for a different audience in this book ... ? This new style doesn't appeal to me as much. I also thought Blair lost a lot of his appeal as just another womanizer with testosterone poisoning ... I hope Harry doesn't fall for him, he's too materialistic and he'd break her heart just like Fair! :-)
