Not my favorite of the Mrs Murphy books. Though set during the Christmas season, it really didn't have anything to do with it, though the blizzardy weather played a central part. Seemed to use this story as a religious statement and to share a pro-gay marriage stance.
GREAT FUN---as are all the Rita Mae Brown (and Sneaky Pie Brown) books!
From back cover: As feline collaboraters go, you couldn't ask for better than Sneaky Pie Brown.
As Harry well knows, there's hardly a place on earth cozier than Crozet, Virginia, at Christmastime. Snowflakes, carolers--it's all picture-perfect until Harry and her husband, Fair, find the holiday tree they've chosen grimly decorated with a corpse. The tree farm is run by the Brothers of Love, a semimonastic organization whose members live atop the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Now, as the season grows merrier, a murderer is growing bolder. One by one, prominent men of Crozet are being crossed off Christmas shopping lists and added to the morgue. And if Harry and her four-legged helpers aren't very good--and very careful--this Christmas will be Harry's last.
Enjoyed this book of the series, great being back with Harry, Fair and friends, 2 legged and 4 legged. This is a very comfortable group of people Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie have created.
