Dixie Hemingway, everyone's favorite pet-sitting sleuth, is back for yet another riveting case. Set in the lush and beautiful island of Siesta Key, with a cast of characters that Dixie fans the world over have come to know and love, The Cat Sitter and the Canary is the latest book by Blaize and her son John Clement. A delightful addition to this critically acclaimed series, The Cat Sitter and the Canary is sure to leave both mystery fans and cat lovers alike purring with delight.

This time, Dixie finds a tall, handsome tourist loitering around the home of one of her long-time clients. He tells her he's just arrived from Scotland and that he's lost his glasses, which presumably explains why he can't find the house he rented for his seaside vacation. Dixie points him to the bungalow across the street (but not before rebuffing a few of the sexy Scotsman's passes) and then continues about her business.

She doesn't think about him again until she stumbles upon a dead body in her client's front hall -- a man in a three-piece suit with jet-black hair, delicate wrists, and a small notecard stuck to his lapel with a pearl-tipped hat pin. Right away, Dixie puts on her sleuthing cap and starts looking for clues, but when she sees what's written on that card, she knows... this is going to be an adventure unlike any she's ever had before.

And if she's not careful, it just might be her last!

Quirky pets, set in the Florida Keys, a sexy Scotsman, and a growing list of dead bodies, each with a personal note for animal sitter Dixie Hemingway. Light and easy, but not glib.

Terrific, fun read. First time I have read this author, but it won't be the last. I really enjoyed the characters and plot.
