I recommend the book to all those who like traditional mysteries, but also to those people who like nice relaxing stories with a lot of humour in them. Rita, please, let us have some more Mrs. Murphy mysteries!
I think that the setting of a Civil War reenactment and a town debate over lack of water was interesting and the overall character development that I love has deepened where people are showing more intelligence and heart than I had expected. This series really excels with its characters and I like them the most.
The plot moved at a quick pace and and it's very easy to follow. I enjoy all of the historical points and just how real everyone and everything seems.
I really didn't care for the final reveals of whodunnit and the subsequent lack of true justice. It seemed so rushed and improbable. And the fact that the killer(s) get away and the planting of "evidence" to throw of the police was terribly obvious that it was disappointing that the residents of Crozet would believe such blatant falsehoods.
Mrs. Browne draws such interesting characters in her books and you find yourself looking forward to the next book to see what has happened in Crozet, Virginia. When I read the very first one, I was hooked and couldn't wait until I could read the next one. I have ordered four or five at the same time and always enjoy every one.
I certainly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a mystery and the imaginative use of animals to help solve it.
