Critic Reviews

"Thinking and talking pets may not be to every taste, but Brown writes so compellingly of the sprightly residents of the Virginia Piedmont, both human and animal, that you have to be a real curmudgeon not to be won over. The author breathes believability into every aspect of this smart and sassy novel." (Publishers Weekly)

Good entry in the series

I love this series, which is obviously cozy. This book is not only a good mystery, but moves the characters foreward in their relationships with each other
As usual. I enjoy Kate Forbes as narrator. She IS Harrys voice.

Love it!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

oh yes. And I have. I love this author and her quirky little friends.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tail of the Tip-Off?

When Harry made the connection of who was the culprit.

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

Her performance of each character was very good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Loved it all
