Great book: Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof: Dixie Hemingway Mysteries

I  just finished another great book in the Dixie Hemingway series: Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof by Blaize Clement. This is the fourth book in the series and they are all great. The lead character, Dixie, is a pet sitter and former deputy who winds up getting involved in murders. She's attracted to two men, one a police investigator and the other a lawyer... but she's hesitant to commit because she's still getting over the loss of her husband and child in an accident from years past. Her gay brother and his partner who live downstairs from her add to the stories and provide both light-heartedness and fun, as well as characters to ground Dixie.
  This story had a great and surprise twist to the end, and will keep you guessing. Really enjoyable! - Rob


ABOUT THE BOOK:
   Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter introduced a winning sleuth in Florida pet sitter Dixie Hemingway, and the next books in the series, Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund and Even Cat Sitters Get the Blues, firmly established author Blaize Clement as a new star amongst mystery fans. Now Dixie Hemingway, no relation to you-know-who, is back in this fourth riveting installment.
   When Dixie meets Laura Halston, a newcomer to Siesta Key, she recognizes a kindred spirit and believes she's found a new friend. Disarmingly beautiful, Laura confesses that she's in hiding from an abusive husband. Later, when Laura receives threatening phone calls, Dixie is certain the husband is the culprit.
   But the more Dixie learns about Laura, the less certain she is about anything…and then matters turn deadly. As she tries to understand Laura's past, Dixie is forced to acknowledge things about herself that she has never faced before.
   Fast-paced and gripping, Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof is everything Blaize Clement's many fans have come to expect.

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.
