Publisher's Summary

The continuing success of the beloved Mrs. Murphy mystery series is given its proper due with the publication of this 20th-anniversary tale. When a local mechanic gets his odometer turned back—for good—Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen steps in to investigate. There’s more to the crime than meets the eye, though, and sleuthing cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, along with faithful corgi Tee Tucker, do their level best to keep Harry out of harm’s way.

A visit with Mrs Murphy

I have always enjoyed this series. I feel like I just stopped by and had a visit with old friends. Mrs Murphy and Pewter were at odds with each other in this book. This story was a bit different as it had more to do with cars and mechanics than other books. Even though the other books remarked that Harry and Boom Boom were "gear heads". I could just picture the scene where Tee Tucker was pulling Harry's hand and the two cats were standing on their hind legs pushing Harry's back legs trying to get her to go where Pewter had found a dead man. I enjoy the animal conversations but at times I feel as if Rita Mae Brown is preaching at me but I started to pay attention to see just how often people make comments about or against the government or some law. I found at least in my circle we do not make as many comment at they do in the book it was more frequent than I had thought, therefore I will give her more lee way in her story. I disagree with some of the other reviewer, I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more. I one does not like animals this series is not for you.

Always a Fan of Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown

Would you listen to The Big Cat Nap again? Why?

Yes I would I enjoy the animal chatter and Harry always confuses me with the way she thinks. But she does solve the case. I also enjoy the friendships between all the women in the book.

If you’ve listened to books by Rita Mae Brown before, how does this one compare?

Yes, I will listen to this again in the future sometime. I figure this one out way before Harry did and I usually don't.

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

She just has all the people down. You know as soon as she starts to talk who she is.

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

I think when all the animals were trying to get them to follow them to the body. We so often dismiss our animals, when they really have something to show or say.

Any additional comments?

I have love this series from the begining, also Sister Jane and her new series is good too. Rita Mae Brown I don't think she writes these as deep thinking (even though some have made me think hard) but for our entertainment. And I can truly say I have always been entertain.
