Great Mystery! "Cat Sitter's Pajamas" by Blaize Clement

I (Rob) just finished enjoying the 7th "Dixie Hemingway Mystery" book "Cat Sitter's Pajamas" by Blaize Clement. I love the Dixie Hemingway character. She's a pet sitter near Sarasota, Florida. She's a quirky character who was once a deputy, but had to resign after her husband and toddler were killed by an elderly driver (and she lost it).  Dixie lives in an apartment off of a house where her brother Michael and his partner Paco live. She's also trying to choose between two guys she's interested in, one a lawyer and the other a detective who moved away.
   This story will keep you guessing right until the end and there are some big twists. I love the main and supporting characters (and of course all the dogs and cats referenced). I 5 of 5 star read for me. :)

ABOUT THE BOOK: Dixie Hemingway, no relation to you-know-who, accepts a job taking care of celebrity linebacker Cupcake Trillin's cats while he's away. What seems like a simple cat-sitting job turns scary when Dixie finds a high-profile fashion model in Cupcake's house. The woman refuses to leave and she also claims to be Cupcake's wife. Only problem? Dixie has met Cupcake's wife―and she's not this woman. Before long Dixie is spun into the world of counterfeit high fashion…and a whole lot of cat fur. When a valuable list of fake-merchandise sellers goes missing, the criminals go after Dixie. Just when she thought she could have her (cup)cake and eat it too, Dixie finds herself with her tail between her legs. Can she claw her way out of this one?

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.
