Overview

Wish You Were Here (Mrs. Murphy Series #1) by Rita Mae Brown

Curiosity just might be the death of Mrs. Murphy--and her human companion, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen.  Small towns are like families:  Everyone lives very close together. . .and everyone keeps secrets.  Crozet, Virginia, is a typical small town-until its secrets explode into murder.  Crozet's thirty-something post-mistress, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, has a tiger cat (Mrs. Murphy) and a Welsh Corgi (Tucker), a pending divorce, and a bad habit of reading postcards not addressed to her.  When Crozet's citizens start turning up murdered, Harry remembers that each received a card with a tombstone on the front and the message "Wish you were here" on the back.  Intent on protecting their human friend, Mrs. Murphy and Tucker begin to scent out clues.  Meanwhile, Harry is conducting her own investigation, unaware her pets are one step ahead of her.  If only Mrs. Murphy could alert her somehow, Harry could uncover the culprit before the murder occurs--and before Harry finds herself on the killer's mailing list.

Be prepared for lots of obscenities peppered throughout the book, with the favored being the "F" word uttered by most of the main characters, including Harry. Even Mrs Murphy (yes, the cat), curses toward the end by exclaiming "Holy S--t!" The language is so unnecessary and does detract from an entertaining who-done-it. The book is plotted well and gives a view of small town life, even with the grisley murders.

I first got hook by the movie that was put out 13 years ago " Murder She Purred" with Ricki Lake. How the author makes the animals speak of their human owner. I did like reading the book, although Rita Mae Brown could do with less swearing. I give it 3 stars because of the swearing. It would have been more enjoyable with out it.

This book is for readers that love animal mysteries and do not care about bad language. The book could have been much more enjoyable if it wasn't for bad choices in verbage! The Cat Who: (Lilian Jackson Braun) books were GREAT animal mysteries and did not include the horrible language choices. RITA NEEDS TO TAKE A LESSON FROM THESE! Due to this I probably will not read any more of Rita Mae Brown's books. I would not recommend this for Book Club discussions
