Rita Mae Brown: Rest in Pieces

by Rita Mae Brown
(cozy cat mystery)

This is a fun book. I still like the pets better than the people for this series, but it’s highly amusing regardless. The mystery on this one actually surprised me, and I didn’t see the whodunnit twist coming. I was able to rule out a few of the “possible” suspects, but I fell for the misdirection instead of seeing the real killer. That was amusing.

I’ll be continuing with this series, though I probably won’t read too many of them in a row. I think this is the kind of series that I’d get sick of quickly if I read them too close together, but reading them with space between will let me enjoy them.

I don’t really know what else to say about this book. It was fun. It was a solid 4 stars: it’s well-written, it’s nicely crafted, and it fulfilled the “agreement” that I had with it when I picked it up. (You know, that it would amuse me and not cause me to throw it against the wall. I didn’t expect anything Earth-shattering from it, and so I wasn’t upset when it didn’t provide that.)

Rating: 4 stars
