I sat my cat in front of the computer and she could just not come out with a mystery on level with what Sneaky Pie produces. This is another good mystery with our old friends of Abernale County.
Another book in the series of Harry, the postmistress, her two cats & her dog who help her solve mysteries. In this one, she's investigating a statue of Mary who has started crying tears of blood.
Rita Mae Brown with help from her perfect co-author, her cat Sneaky Pie Brown, has produced another good mystery. Of course, it probably helps that she is helped by her co-author who gives their human help in solving the mystery, with help from two cats, a possum, a wise owl, and numerous mice, all of whom observe the clues and try to give them to the slow witted humans, who finally do get a "clue" and solve the mystery.
Rita Mae Brown's books are so much fun to read, although if you've never read them before, you might want to get the first one in the series and read up to this one. Great reading!!
Less of a mystery and more of a continuation of what is happening to the characters in the mystery series as all mystery series tend to become after a while. However, in a good series, you will be invested in the characters and a book like this isn't a problem! Predictable solution to the mystery, but good as a plain old novel!
"Harry" Haristeen, her Welh Corgi, Tucker and feline sleuths Pewter and Mrs. Murphy, are swept up in the mystery of a crying statue; along with Harry's friend BoomBoom, who thinks she is falling in love with a woman.
This may be the last book in this series that I will read. I don't know what Rite Mae Brown was trying to prove here but there are many personal agendas that she is addressing and very little "murder mystery".
