Ever since her husband’s affair, Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen has taken a sabbatical from men. The 30-ish divorcée is content to tend her farm and gain a bird’s-eye view of the neighbors from her perch as small-town postmistress. Yet when a hunky city slicker comes to town with no clue about farming, she’s happy to show him the ropes. When pieces of a dismembered body crop up around Crozet, however, the wary townsfolk reckon the handsome stranger is the culprit. But as Harry and her sleuthing pets - Mrs. Murphy the cat and Tee Tucker the dog - sniff out the clues, they have other notions.
While the unique trio follows a curious trail, Kate Forbes’ charming narration captures the spirit of each colorful character - whether human, feline, or canine.

In Spite of Myself . . .
If you could sum up Rest in Pieces in three words, what would they be?
Cat, Dog, Postmisstress
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite is Boom Boom Craycroft. Who hasn't known a woman like that?
Which character – as performed by Kate Forbes – was your favorite?
My favorite is Mrs. Murphy. Why? I can imagine a cat with that attitude. Imagine her? I had a cat just like her!
Any additional comments?
I love this series in spite of the slightly corny gimmick of the cats and dog that can understand their humans and react in a terrifically human way. Don't we all wish it were true?

Fun fluff for the ears
Rita Mae Brown’s Mrs Murphy series is a fun bit of mystery fluff with smart cats and loyal dogs who obviously know more than the humans. The cast of characters are likeable and develop through the series. Kate Forbes reads well and voices the different characters without relying on obnoxious voices. Overall, this is a fun cozy mystery series starter.
