Mystery Woman Sleuth
In this latest whodunit, Rita Mae Brown and her
feline partner-in-crime-detection, Sneaky Pie Brown,
return to the scene of their bestselling crimes–
picturesque Crozet, Virginia. Love is in the air as spring
comes to the small town, but no sooner has Mary

their initial fright, the residents of Crozet believe that

routines–until a local is also found dead, killed in the
same gruesome manner as Professor Forland. Now residents
can’t help wondering, is this really the work of an
outsider–or one of their own?
No longer working in the post office, Harry had just

curiosity over just what the two murder victims knew and

grapevines blossom and Harry’s furry entourage discovers
the first critical clue. But how can they show the humans
what they’ve learned? And how can they–or anyone–stop the
