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
