Cat Got Your Secrets
Crooked Lane Books, 2017
From the dust jacket: “Lacy Marie Crocker has settled into a comfortable grove back home in New Orleans, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, she’s busier than ever running a thriving pet boutique, helping her mother organize the upcoming National Pet Pageant, and untangling her complicated love life. but when delivering a king-sized order of dreidel-shaped doggy biscuits for a Saint Berdoodle’s Bark-Mitzvah, Lacy stumbles into yet another murder scene—and the last person to see the victim alive was her own father.
“It’s up to Lacy to clear her dad’s name from the suspect list before Detective Jack Oliver has to cage him for good. But just when she starts pawing at the truth, she receives a threatening letter from a mysterious blackmailer bent on silencing her with her own secrets. And Lacy’s not the only one with bones in her closet.”
More fun pet fashion and mystery! I liked this book as much as the previous two (and I only saw one spelling error, so the editor is getting better, too!). I did end up guessing who the murder was – but only just before Lacy did so I think that’s a pretty good mystery. The books are all well written with seamless plot twists and fast paced enough to keep me reading when I should’ve have taken a nap or groomed myself. I hope the author writes more soon!!!
Rating: 4 out of 5 paws – There’s three recipes included and the tuna tart sounds the best. I’ve never been to New Orleans but I bet it would be fun – I’d especially like to see the Garden District and Magazine Street, which is where the fictional Furry Godmother Pet Boutique is.
