"Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof" Review

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.

This was a cozy mystery, about a pet sitter, who always seems to arrive at the scene of the crime before anyone else. It was a enjoyable book to read if you like cozy mysteries. I couldn't believe I figured out who done it, but it is always fun to try to figure it out even if I am usually wrong. 

I read one of her other books "Even Cat Sitters Get The Blues" and enjoyed it. So I will probably read the next one in the series, even though I read these first two books out of order, it doesn't really matter because they are books that stand on their own, whether you have read the other ones in the series or not.

It was an enjoyable read and I am giving it 3*** I also read this book for my "Animal Book Reading Challenge."

I bought this book and it is in my personal library.


  1. This does sound like a cute cozy mystery.

  2. I love the theme of this book - too cute!
