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.
As the mystery unfolds, the readers learn more and more about Harry, her neighbors, and their pets. At the top of the pyramid are Marilyn Sanburne and her recently married daughter, Little Marilyn. Although not a marriage of love, at first, she and Fitz-Gilbert have come to care for each other in a short time. But as usual in Crozet, things are not as they appear.
While no one in the small town wants to believe that one of them is a murderer, another body turns up. Each is beginning to believe he or shee may be in danger. But why? The end is surprising and satisfying. This is a good quick read and leads the reader into the next in the series.
Since being cheated on by her ex-husband, Fair, Harry is taking a sabbatical from men. She's quite content spending her days tending her farm, and working at the post office where she has a bird's eye view of all of her neighbors. When city slicker Blair Bainbridge arrives in town, however, Harry can't help but wonder if, perhaps, something could happen between the two. Blair is handsome and rugged, but he's also a kind soul who needs a lot of help learning the way farm's work. As a courteous neighbor, Harry is more than happy to show him the ropes. But not everyone in Crozet is so trusting of the newcomer. When pieces of a dismembered body begin springing up around Crozet, people begin questioning Blair's arrival. After all, things were always quaint, cozy, carefree, and safe within the Crozet city limits until Blair arrived. Now a dismembered corpse has popped up, and no one knows who it belongs to. With Christmas right around the corner, not many are interested in dwelling on the evil surrounding them. Except for Harry.Read more ›

As with all her books, I really like the characters and how they interact. The people who inhabit this town are fleshed out well and I feel I know them. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Vicki Manzanares
Though it may not have been as great as the 1st book, it still demonstrates a perfect part of this series. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Elizabeth Grimm
