This entry into the Sneaky Pie series is a little different than the others. That is not a bad thing. Ms. Brown just out did herself in writing this one. I didn¿t see the end coming at all. Great going to the Browns, you did a wonderful job in hiding the killer and the why in this plot. I wished I could give this installment 6 stars, it is better than the previous books and they were very fun and entertaining. As with all of the author¿s installments in this series, the writing is tight and flows smoothly. The characters and dialog were very well developed. One thing too that I like about this series is that the author stays true to her characters. Ms. Brown understands the psychology of the inhabits of Crozet. She never lets them do anything that they shouldn¿t just to move the plot. This installment also introduces a new character, Tracy Raz. In my book, he is a welcomed addition to the Crozet clan. A nice father figure to Harry and companion to Miranda. I hope that he never moves away. Miranda needs some one to take care of and to love again. With the reunions, we get to see a different side to Harry. Harry does some mellowing and is starting to understand herself better. I do sense some changes in the air for her and the Crozet clan. I¿m sure that The Browns will make these changes for the better. Because I¿m sure that Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie love these characters as much as I do.

In Virginia, there is a special place that some might consider magical. Crozet is a small charming hamlet where Southern gentility sways and everybody knows one another. However, the magic resides with the animals who are at as intelligent as the humans, communicate between species as they understand one another, and comprehend what the humans say even if Homo Sapiens fails to reciprocate.

A gray cat Mrs. Murphy, a Welsh Congi Tee Tucker, and a gray tiger cat Peculiar own human Mary Minor ¿Harry¿ Hairsteen. Harry and friends are planning the high school¿s twentieth reunion when a strange anonymous note arrives. Mrs. Murphy thinks that there is something weird about the note and her fears prove right when someone kills the local lothario. A second note arrives followed by a second murder. Harry begins sleuthing with her animals planning to stealthily assists her to keep her safe.

Talented author Rita Mae Brown beguiles her audience with a special tale that taps into the fantasy believer in all of us. PAWING THROUGH THE PAST makes readers accept animals talking with one another and understanding human speech, and caring about their ¿pets¿ so as to insure their safety. The mystery is cleverly crafted so that it captures and uses the ambiance of small town Southern living to propel the story line forward. Fans of the Mrs. Murphy series will want to immediately read this novel while newcomers will search for the previous books.
