Max on.... book review of Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter

My book pick for March 2010 is Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter by Blaize Clement...

Okay Critter Pals, it's time for a review of my latest favorite author. Blaize Clement has written a series of mystery books. It's called the Dixie Hemingway Mystery Series.

I have just finished the first book of the series, Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter. It was published in 2006. I could have started with her most recent book in the series, but when I find an author, I like to read the books in order. Anyhoooo.... here's a little peek at how the book starts. Of course I'm not going to tell you how it ends. On-no... you have to read it for yourself.

Dixie Hemingway, the main character, is a pet-sitter. She stops by the homes of busy or traveling pet owners to feed, brush, walk, and give some lovin' to their pets.

The story opens with Dixie stopping by to feed Ghost a beautiful Abyssinian. When Dixie steps in the kitchen, she finds a man dead on the floor...murdered to be exact.

Well Critter Pals, you know how he was killed? First he was knocked out, then some nefarious chap taped his head -- face down -- into Ghost's water dish. Dixie calls the police, then takes Ghost to kitty daycare.

Cause of death? He drowned. Now that's the way to grab a reader's attention. Well, you'd think that would be enough excitement for one day, but nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo... Dixie can't help herself. She starts an investigation of her own.

Excitement and tension ensue.... To know what happens, you have to read the book. If you like mysteries, give this one a try. On a scale of 4, I give Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter, 3 1/2 paws. I would give it the top number of 4 paws, but I gave that to Dewey and it's just too soon for me to get over that wonderful book.
Anyway, read Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter then move on to other books by Blaize Clement. They are:
  • Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund
  • Even Cat Sitters Get the Blues
  • Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof
  • Raining Cat Sitters and Dogs

Note: If you live on the west coast of Florida and you want to meet Blaize Clement in person, she'll be signing books at The Sanddollar Book Store in Venice Florida on March 13 at 1:00pm. Tell her Max the Quilt Cat sent you.
