Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

The Big Cat Nap - Rita Mae Brown With this book and also with "Hiss of Death" Rita Mae Brown is (almost) back to her old standards again! After 5+ years of mediocre novels she has written two pretty good ones again. They still aren't as good as the very old ones - I really miss the times when Harry was still Crozet's postmistress - but the logic in the murders is back.
In their 20th adventure Harry and her feline/canine friends are confronted with several brutal murders in a local garage. Harry's passion for cars and her usual curiosity bring her very close to a killer who won't stop at another killing...
I sometimes had slight problems with this book because I hardly know anything about cars and am also not much interested in them. But the solution of the murders was a very logical one and I was really satisfied with the ending.
I just wish that Rita wuould give some of the original characters more room. I really would like to read a lot more on Miranda, Susan, Little and Big Mim again.
