This is a good BBC article about mammalian evolution - https://www.sciencefocus.com/nature/the-secret-world-of-mammal-evolution/
The really interesting bit is the yet to be officially described fossil from China of a probable furred mammal from the Mesozoic Era, from around 125 million years ago. Incredible specimen. Look at the detail of the fur. Large for a mammalian fossil of it's ilk. Those Chinese sediments that revealed all the feathered and fluffy dino's may do the same for Mesozoic mammals.
