This series is a good way to regroup! No particular suspense, a cozy set in Virginia horse-country. silly enough to bring balm to the nerves. ( )

Another cozy mystery from the series with Harry and her fur person, Mrs. Murphy, Pewter and Tucker.

Christmastime in Crozet, Virginia is something out of a picture book. Snow on the ground, the beauty of fresh Christmas trees on the lot and a body found among them. Hmmmm....

The tree lot is owned by the Brothers of Love. A monastic group of men whose focus is to provide care for those in need. But are they really what they claim to be. True they have been around for a number of years, but the backgrounds of some of them raise questions.

Meanwhile, a number of prominent men in Crozet seem to by dying off under suspicious circumstances. What is the tie in?

A fun series to read, especially if you have a soft spot for furries and like light, cozy reads. ( )

An interesting little book. I appreciate her feminism and pro gay stance but she's a little off putting with her aggressive southernism. ( )

Number 17 in the Mrs. Murphy series.

This was a really cute mystery by RM Brown. Monks involved with a mystery--now that's a new one. She had a good pace and seemed to (for once) not get up on her soapbox on a topic. Maybe that is a product of her advancing years. My favorite part is always when the cats and dog fight and talk amongst themselves. Wouldn't that e great if we knew what they were saying in real life? ( )
