    The Big Cat Nap (Thorndike Press Large Print Basic Series)

    Publisher:   Thorndike Press; Lrg edition (2012, Apr 6th).
    Pages:   

    Publishers Weekly Brown's 20th Mrs. Murphy mystery marks a welcome return to cozy form after the didacticism of 2011's Hiss of Death. A car accident strikes Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, the postmistress of Crozet, Va., as a little odd. Harry's suspicions grow as more accidents and a few murders occur, all involving a local auto repair shop and perhaps a nearby racetrack. Harry, whose "flaming flaw is she's much too curious," turns for help to her four-footed companions—cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter and Corgi Tee Tucker—who have their own theories about the crimes, especially after Pewter discovers a body. Harry's pets are mostly concerned that her snooping will once again land her in trouble and, of course, it does. more

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Stewart O'Nan
    Format:   Large Print]
    Publisher:   Center Point Pub; Lrg edition (2012, Apr 1st).
    Pages:   

    Ron Charles Stewart O'Nan seems incapable of writing a false line…The Odds is another in his growing body of distinctly trim books…Once again, he's given us a story line that seems daringly sparse. Even the opening punches…immediately give way to the small, plain movements of a middle-aged couple in a hotel room. This willfully anti-dramatic structure succeeds only because O'Nan writes well enough to render the choreography of domestic life as captivating as the drama that usually keeps our attention in fiction…A few hours with this witty, sad, surprisingly romantic novel might be a better investment for troubled couples than a month of marriage counseling. —The Washington Post Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly Marion and Art, on the brink of divorce and bankruptcy, head back to Niagara Falls, where they spent their honeymoon decades earlier. more
