OK. This series has been going downhill since the author began apparantly using it as a platform for her personal issues. The cuteness and the mystery are still there but you have to work for it, slogging through lengthy discourses on ecoterrorism, viticulture, and oenology. Don't know what these are? You will! I kept wondering if there was going to be a pop quiz.

"The 13th Mrs. Murphy mystery from bestseller Brown and her feline collaborator opens with the comic-opera remarriage of series heroine Harry Haristeen and Fair, Harry's veterinarian ex-husband, reintroducing at length some familiar characters before turning to the novel's main focusthe vagaries of the burgeoning wine industry in the Virginia Piedmont. The prospect of having your own label or selling at a profit to another winery is too good to pass up, and even Harry and Fair have put in a quarter acre of Petit Manseng grapes. But someone is trying to scare off the competition, and the disappearance of a respected expert in the mutation of toxins sets Harry's talking petscats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter and corgi Tee Tuckeron the sleuthing trail. When a longstanding feud between rival vintners leads to murder, Harry has to read the clues before attrition gives us the answers. Brown provides a captivating look at grape growing and the passionate dedication it requires."
