Being a fan of the Lilian Jackon Braun mysteries, and the Mitford Series, I thought I'd give these books a try for some "light reading" after seeing them displayed in Wal-Mart. I'm attracted to books about small-town living, animals, mysteries, you get the idea.
I only read 3 chapters and decided not to finish. There was an large use of profanity, both from the human and animal characters. Not just common swear words, but ones that would get Ralphie's mouth washed out with soap (referring to the movie, "The Christmas Story"). If the use of these words had been less frequent, I could've overlooked them and continued reading, but they appeared too frequently for my taste. The level of frequency was something I'd expect from ...well I don't know - I don't read books with lots of swear words.
Sorry, but I won't be recommending these mysteries to anyone I know.

In the second book of the Mrs. Murphy series, a male model by the name of Blair moves to town. Soon, Miranda begins her matchmaking with Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen and Blair.
Not long after, Tucker uncovers a hand by Blair's cemetary. Then, a torso is found in Big Mim's boathouse. Dismembered pieces of a murdered victim show up in unexpected places (my favorite part was when they found the head).
As always, Harry and her two pets try to solve who the murderer was. At the same time, a new relationship may be developing between Harry and Blair.
This book was a great read with a surprising ending. I figured out who the murderer was long before, but I had no idea as to why he murdered and etc.
Again, I highly recommend this book, or any other books from the Mrs. Murphy series for that matter.

In this book that I read was kind of boring but in a weird way I liked it. They make it interesting by having a murder and it was really unexpected the way it turned out. In the story there was one obvious killer but when they make it so obvious then you kind of think its not him and it wasn't him so that was predictable. Any ways there is this lady in the book and she was married to a guy named... well I don't know his whole name they just referred to him as Fits. So any ways they get a divorce oh yea Fits was married to a girl named Harry yes Harry. Doesn't this book get weird? Just wait till the end. So a male model moves into the lame town and he likes Harry. His name is Blair and every one thinks he is the killer when body parts turn up in the town after a strange man comes to town named Tommy. Ok so there are more murders that go on, the town is super nosy and get in the way of the cops. So it all comes down to this crazy shoot out in a barn. Oh I almost for got I can't tell you the ending but I will tell you that it will make you say "that's so lame" cause it's so unbelievable, and it involves plastic surgery. So anyways that's the story

This was the first of these Mrs. Murphy mysteries that I've read, and I just loved it. Something about the animals speaking and seeing things differently than the humans do gives this mystery an extra edge I think. A great read.

An excellent book!! This is one of the best of the Mrs. Murphy series. As always, Tucker, Mrs. Murphy and Pewter are a riot - and in this book, we see much more of Simon the Opposum, who is another lovable character. This book has some rather grisly humor (I won't give away more) that really perked it up - as well as interesting interactions between the various humans. In these earlier books, Miranda is really a character, and she is a lot of fun that way (Brown tones her down a little too much in the later books). I would highly recommend this book - especially to pet lovers everywhere.

This book is truly a mystery for generations to come. The end is unforgetable and surprising. Harry, Murphy, Tucker and the rest really know how to get into trouble- but they know how to get back out with a bite her and a claw there. Crozet,Virginia (being French the "t" is scilent)is a small town where a lot of big events take place. Harry, newly devorced from a vet, takes her place in southern, Virginian society as the postmistress, often using her work to help solve the stage mysteries going on around her.
It's hard to put the books down once they're picked up! My brother got "Rest in Pieces" for our mom for Christmas- and she didn't get to read it until I had finished! Really, this is a book for mystery lovers everywhere- no matter where you live.
Things to remember when reading the Mrs. Murphy Mysteries:
1. it's pronounced "Stanton" even though it's spelled "Staunton" (mentioned in "Murder on the Prowl.")
2. the movie "Murder she Purred" is a direct take off of "Rest in Pieces"- is don't watch it until you've read the book. The plots are a little different and may cause confusion if you haven't read the book.
3. remember your Latin- it's thrown through out all the book.
that's all for me! happy reading!

The second in the Mrs. Murphy series... "Rest in Pieces" is equally as cute as the first one, "Wish You Were Here." The plot is very simple, the ending predictable... but fun nonetheless.
The relationships between the animals (and this book includes more than just the cat and the dog... but a possum, 2 horses, a snake, and an owl as well) is fun and cute to read. And the relationships between the characters are developing well... the reader is introduced to everyone in the first book... and reading the second one is like being re-united with old friends. And i am looking forward to the third one to see if the budding romance from this novel continues.
Whereas i'd hardly call this book quality literature... it was a lot of fun for a rainy saturday afternoon... and for [money] is a lot better than most of the movies in theaters now! It's a great read for animal/mystery lovers.
