The Sister Jane series has its own legion of devoted fans who love its singularity and eagerly await each new volume.
10TH BOOK IN THE SISTER JANE FOXHUNTING SERIES: “The fun of Brown’s series is the wealth of foxhunting lore, the spot-on portrayal of Virginians…and the evocative descriptions of the Blue Ridge Mountains…And then there’s Sister, the 73-year-old heroine who becomes even more appealing with each successive book. Brown has a winner in this memorable character.”—Virginia Times Dispatch, on Hounded to Death
AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR: Rita Mae received Lambda Literary’s 2015 Pioneer Award, bestowed on those who have broken new ground in LGBT literature, and the 2015 Lee Lynch Classic Book Award for her novel Rubyfruit Jungle, from The Golden Crown Literary Society. She’s also a New York Public Library Lion.
“If you can pick up Crazy Like a Fox and recognize the voices of Comet, a wise old gray fox; Dasher, a hound at the top of his game; and Golliwog, a snippy calico cat, you qualify as a member of the pack that surrounds Sister Jane Arnold, Master of Jefferson Hunt and the sleuth in Rita Mae Brown’s enchanting novels set in the Virginia horse country…. Just the kind of story that adds to the charm of Brown’s whimsical mysteries, with their thrilling hunts and intelligent animals.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Brown’s animal characters, including horses, hounds, and foxes, have as much to say as the people, and Brown never misses an opportunity to interject her own social commentary. This will appeal…to fans of Brown’s Sneaky Pie novels.”—Publishers Weekly
“Without a doubt, Crazy Like a Fox is [Brown’s] best mystery to date…and earns top marks for everything from plot to pace to characters.”—In & Around Horse Country
