Publisher's Summary

With help from her friends - the irascible gray cat Pewter, the wise corgi Tee Tucker, and Tally, the exuberant Jack Russell - Sneaky crisscrosses her home state of Virginia hoping to go where no cat since Socks Clinton has gone: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In the tradition of her heroine, Sojourner Truth, she takes her case to the masses. Journeying from the lair of the red-shouldered hawk to the nest of the tufted titmouse, from a pasture full of curmudgeonly cows to the stately halls of Monticello, the tenacious tiger cat even secures the chattering support of Thomas Jefferson’s mice. Mice backing a cat for president? Yes, we can!

Now, if Sneaky can get the animal community to band together for the common good, why not the humans? After all, who better to get the economy purring again than an honest tabby with authentic political stripes? Human candidates have had their chance in Washington, with dubious results of late: Nowhere does it say in the Constitution that the president cannot be a cat.

This is a political commentary.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone looking for political commentary, not a mystery.

Would you ever listen to anything by Rita Mae Brown again?

Yes, but not in this genre.

How could the performance have been better?

Never finished it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and a bit of anger that this was billed as a Sneaky Pie mystery. I kept listening for the story line--there is none, just commentary by the usual Sneaky Pie characters. Not at all what I was looking for.

Not a Mrs. Murphy Book

What would have made Sneaky Pie for President better?

The blurb indicated it was a Mrs Murphy story, it is not. I would never have purchased this had I known that up front. I love Mrs Murphy and the interaction between the animals and humans. This is the worst Rita Mae Brown book I have read, and I have read most of her fiction works including Venus Envy.

Would you ever listen to anything by Rita Mae Brown again?

yes.

What does Kate Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kate Forbes always does a good job on the Rita Mae Brown books she reads

This was not a story all in the animals voice

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money or a credit. I listened to the whole thing hoping for an improvement

Not a mystery

Dissapointing - This is no mystery but a political statement. I loved this series with Mrs. Murphy. But I missed her! Well, I cannot tell for sure if she ever appeared in this book, because I got out after an hour or so.
This Volume should not be set in the Series of Mrs. Murphy. It should be the first one in the 'co-author' Sneaky Pie Brown

Very Unlike Sneaky

What disappointed you about Sneaky Pie for President?

I wanted a good Sneaky Pie mystery, not a political diatribe on the issues facing us today. I can get those anywhere and listen to the books on my way to and from work when I want to forget about the world today.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'm listening to the Women's Murder Club by James Patterson

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Just the way it was read wasn't lively.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was thoroughly disappointed in this book.

Any additional comments?

Stick to writing about mysteries. That's what I buy the books for.

don't waste your money

Any additional comments?

Nowhere in the description does it tell you there is not story here - just the standard left wing script of whines and complaints told by the animals. I love the Crozet series but this is enough to turn me off from the books forever.

Sorry I bought it.

Yes

What was most disappointing about Rita Mae Brown’s story?

It was not a Mrs Murphy mystery! I bought it to have the complete series. It was more a rant about politics.

What three words best describe Kate Forbes’s performance?

Clear diction

Not a mystery

Not a murphy. Mystery. It is a cute little story, but it is not a Miss Murphy mystery.

Wasted credit

There was nothing mystery or Mrs. Murphy about this book. No need for it to be a part of this series. Very disappointed to have wasted a credit on this book.

Awful -- don't waste a credit on this

Kate Forbes can't save this one. I usually can persevere through an audiobook -- but on this one I'm bailing, while holding the white flag over my mouth & nose.
