3.0 out of 5 stars Quite a few holes., February 11, 2008
This review is from: The Purrfect Murder (Mrs. Murphy) (Hardcover)
I have been finding that the Mrs. Murphy mystery series is getting a bit sloppy. There appears to be a lot of holes in the plot in this one as well. The book starts out with two storylines, that appear to meld together, and then ends up with two storylines again. It makes it a bit difficult to follow the plot. But we do have the people of Crozet (although not so much of Miranda), and that helps, and we have the animal characters which help to carry this story along. I just feel a bit disappointed because the book seemed rushed, and so much didn't make sense. I do hope that Ms. Brown will pick up in the next book because I have enjoyed Harry and her animal companions.

I give up on Rita Mae Brown. Her last few books have been more of a platform for her political and sexual opinons, her blatant use of brands of everything from saddle blankets to crackers. more like a billboard than a story. I have read all of her books re Virginia , but did not finish this one...worked to get through the last one.

I think I have to agree with you. I used to enjoy the series, but now it's more trouble than its worth to get through them. So many series seem to decline like this.

I gave up after the terrible Sour Puss and Puss 'n Cahoots. I must have had a small bit of hope left for this series, though, as I have come back to check the reviews. Sadly, it sounds like the author is still not up to par...

It's so sad, as the first 6 books were, in my opinion, wonderful. I did get tired of the poor editing (changing the Doctor's last name in one of them to another last name; putting characters into the conversation that were not there at all before; the lack of credible continuity, etc.). I miss the magic.
