Crime writing with a difference !,
This review is from: Wish You Were Here (Mrs. Murphy Mysteries) (Mrs. Murphy Mysteries (Paperback)) (Mass Market Paperback)
I came across Rita Mae Brown and Sneeky Pie on a trip to the USA (airport bookshops strike again !) and these are murder mysteries with a difference.
Unlike Lillian Jackson Braun's 'The Cat who' series the animals actually get a say here as Rita Mae brings you into the character's world from not only the human but cat and dog's eye view (and trust me their insights are very interesting!). By the time you have read the first book (and are hungry for more) you will know the characters like your own neighbours. The books are writen with humour as well as storylines that keep you page turning until the end...and then you realise you enjoyed it so much you wish there was more of it ! Attention is paid to all the members of the community of Crozet not just the main characters and both the motive and 'who doneit' is usually a complete suprise !
More please !
