CAT SITTER AMONG THE PIGEONS

Former Florida police officer turned pet-sitting sleuth is once again on the prowl. Dixie—no relation to you-know-who—is helping an elderly gentleman, Mr. Stern, take care of his orange shorthair cat, Cheddar. But its Sterns infant granddaughter, Opal, who really wins Dixies heart. Problem is that Opals mother, Ruby, has some dangerous connections to certain local big-money honchos. Ruby has enough insider information to send them to prison for life…and they are willing to do anything, even threaten Opals life, to shut her up and preserve their ill-gotten gains. Now its up to Dixie to protect Opal from harm—at all costs. And she must do it without letting law-enforcement people know—not even Detective Guidry, with whom she happens to be romantically involved. Does Dixie have her claws sunk in too deep to make it out of this one? Or are her nine lives finally up?

“Dixies latest adventure keeps you glued to your seat from the first chapter.”

—Kirkus Reviews

 “For anyone who loves mysteries, animals, or just plain great writing.”

—Laurien Berenson, author of Doggie Day Care Murder

 “Dixie is Floridas favorite pet sitter.”

—Sarasota Herald-Tribune
