Not the best of the Mrs. Murphy mystery series, but still a good read. If you enjoy a mystery series with good character development, this is one for you. I used to live over the mountain from Crozet in Harrisonburg, so it's also nice to read about places I've been.

Delightful! If you like simple mysteries and animals, this is a good book to read. Also enjoyed learning more about Virgina and the beautiful scenery in that area.

Love the series with detective animals-although I do look at my cats and wonder....

I didn't like this one as well as the other Mrs. Murphy title I've read. Perhaps the more she writes, the better she gets at crafting story.

It took me a while to catch the author's style and to be able to sort the names of the players, the human as well as the four-legged. the storyline was interesting, and I liked the use of real places in the storyline. not necessarily the town or Crozet, I don't know if exists in name or in fancy, and it doesn't matter, but the author drew me in with the references to other places of my acquaintance, and I was hooked.

the plot was somewhat fiendish, I mean the perpetrator almost had to be one of the people we knew, you know, like, "the butler did it." but not quite. trying to keep up, let alone get ahead of the plot was a good challenge. I liked it. I'd be looking for more books by this author, and being animal fanciers, I'll probably send it back for my wife and daughters to read, as well. loved the canine/feline dialog, although that's what took me a while to understand who the real players were. yup, I liked it.
