Hiss of Death: A Mrs. Murphy Mystery
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Rita Mae Brown's The Big Cat Nap.
Ah, spring! The brighter days and singing birds have a way of lifting people’s spirits, as well as those of their animal companions. But the season can also bring out the first blossoms of murder. As the redbuds open in Crozet, Virginia, Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen is especially excited—until a health crisis sends her reeling into the forbidding world of hospitals and doctors, treatments and procedures. Surviving this journey will be tough, but Harry has her animal friends—and her ever-helpful husband, Fair—to support her. Others are considerably less fortunate: A promising nurse’s lifeless body is discovered without a mark on her. Then another hospital employee, who had seemed in perfect health, is also found dead. There’s a mystery afoot—and that’s one thing Harry and her menagerie can’t keep their noses out of.

I just loved this book! And sometimes that is NOT the case with Rita. She didn't get on her soapbox as much in this book. It was entertaining although the ending was so farfetched it was almost like something out of Disney. You just had to laugh. A quick read and a job well done. Read full review
