Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof

Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof
by Blaize Clement

This is the fourth in the series of Dixie Hemingway mysteries which take place on Siesta Key, the barrier island just off Sarasota, Florida. Dixie is a former Sarasota County deputy sheriff who has an understandable breakdown after her husband and small daughter are killed. She's now a pet-sitter - a seemingly gentle, no-stress occupation. Unfortunately, she keeps finding dead bodies on Siesta Key! Though Dixie tries to cooperate with the police, especially hunky Detective Guidry, sometimes she just knows that her way is the right way, even when the right way puts her in danger. I think the mysteries keep improving as the series goes along. Dixie is a very likable character and conscientious pet-sitter. My mother lives on Siesta Key so it's fun for me to read about places I know so well.
