Yesterday I received an email from an irate reader. I've invited her here today and agreed to address her complaint on the blog.
Sigh. Cats are so sensitive. But Busty's suggestion is a good one.
If a long-running series of gentle mysteries set in Crozet, Virginia, starring a sleuthing cat, her best dog pal, and their many animal friends (plus a few humans) sounds good to you, then ask your friendly librarian or bookseller for the Mrs. Murphy Mysteries by Sneaky Pie Brown. It might help to mention Sneaky Pie's mother, Rita Mae Brown, while you're at it. Sometimes the books are shelved under her name.
