In this second entry from The New York Times best-selling series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown, the citizens of Crozet, Virginia, reap a gruesome harvest - of human body parts.
Ever since her husband’s affair, Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen has taken a sabbatical from men. The 30-ish divorcée is content to tend her farm and gain a bird’s-eye view of the neighbors from her perch as small-town postmistress. Yet when a hunky city slicker comes to town with no clue about farming, she’s happy to show him the ropes. When pieces of a dismembered body crop up around Crozet, however, the wary townsfolk reckon the handsome stranger is the culprit. But as Harry and her sleuthing pets - Mrs. Murphy the cat and Tee Tucker the dog - sniff out the clues, they have other notions.
While the unique trio follows a curious trail, Kate Forbes’ charming narration captures the spirit of each colorful character - whether human, feline, or canine.

Cat, Dog, Postmisstress
My favorite is Boom Boom Craycroft. Who hasn't known a woman like that?
My favorite is Mrs. Murphy. Why? I can imagine a cat with that attitude. Imagine her? I had a cat just like her!
I love this series in spite of the slightly corny gimmick of the cats and dog that can understand their humans and react in a terrifically human way. Don't we all wish it were true?
