The animals are my favorite :) This book takes place in KY while Harry and Fair are honeymooning at a Saddlebred horse show. I know nothing about horse shows but the story is full of surprises, deceit, and murder. Leave it to Mrs. Murphy and her friends to reveal who is truly not what he/she seems. I enjoyed the book - a quick read - finished it in one day.
i am from shelby county, kentucky where the setting for this book takes place (Shelbyville Horse Show). it was SO COOL to read this book and know exactly the places she references! it's a cute, fun mystery to read and as a frequent attendee to the Shelbyville Horse Show, it made it even that much more special!
I have read this whole sereied of Rita Mae Brown's books about a postmistress and her two cats and Yorkie who help her solve mysteries. The animals communicate to each othe and the rest of the animal world and are smarter than the humans! It is a cute, lighthearted mystery series which make great reads. I highly recommend!
