Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter is the first Dixie Hemingway by Blaize Clement. If you like animal centered mysteries and the cozy, you are going to like Blaize Clement. Be forewarned though, Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter is a little bit more violent and a bit cruder than you typical cozy.

Dixie Hemingway is a pet sitter. She has enough clients to keep herself busy as she recovers from a personal tragedy. One morning she walks in a client’s house to take care of the cat and finds a body with its nose taped into the cat’s water bowl.

Like any good ex-cop and amateur detective, Dixie Hemingway cannot just let the police solve the murder and gets involved. She soon gets herself in danger.

Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter is a fun, light read with all the elements of the cozy. The ending is a bit violent and you to have to buy the set up for it but it’s not that hard to do. There are quite a few books in the Cat Sitter series by the late Blaize Clement and this is a good place to start.
