Great 1st in the Dixie Hemingway mystery series: "Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter" by Blaize Clement

I just read the 2nd in one of the best pet mysteries I've ever read: Curiosity Killed the Cat
Sitter by Blaize Clement - Rob


  Back on Sept. 14th, we posted a blog about the book "Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund," which I thoroughly enjoyed. That was the 2nd in the "Dixie Hemingway mystery series" by Blaize Clement. I went back and bought the first in the series called "Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter" and it was ALSO fantastic.   
    Dixie is a 32 year old former Sheriff's deputy, widower and now pet sitter with a vivid personality. The supporting characters of her gay brother and partner as a fireman and undercover cop really added to the story and you could picture Dixie talking with them and dining with them. In addition to a murder or two that will keep you guessing, I also enjoyed reading about a young gay character that Dixie met. He lived in a house with two hateful, bigoted parents, and he tried keeping his secret until an accident. - Although a minor part of the fast-paced main storyline, the author did a great job explaining the stress and horror teenagers deal with, who grow up in a home with unaccepting and even hostile, bigoted parents. Again, that was a fringe storyline.
   There were funny parts, serious parts, intrigue, mystery, murders, and of course cats and dogs. 
I will be ordering ALL of Blaize Clements "Dixie Hemingway" novels. You should read them, too! - Rob 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
