    ~Harry Shivered. No good will come of this, she thought to herself.~
    Furmidable Foes by Rita Mae Brown is the 29th Mrs. Murphy mystery which brings Mary Minor Harry Harristeen and the fur babies together to solve another mystery. I enjoyed the gardening theme of this mystery and the cover is beautifully designed for spring! Harry and Susan with other members of the Dorcas Guild work on the gardens at St. Luke's to restore them to the historic design of 1787. As Harry and the ladies prepare the

    I believe this is the best in the series. I was drawn in at the very start. It was a very entertaining story with clever characters and unexpected plot twists and turns woven throughout the story. All in all it is a highly enjoyable read.I would definitely recommend this book to family and friends.

    I've been reading this series for years and I feel lucky to have gotten a chance to read this. As always, you get quite the history lesson. It makes it a book within a book and that's quite enjoyable. This is just a well written whodunit full of characters and pets to love.

    I always enjoy visiting Harry and the gang to see what trouble shes gets into. I have especially enjoyed the last few as they flashback in time and give us a few of the area before the civil war. ...more
