At the start of the Clements’ light hearted 11th Dixie Hemingway mystery (after 2015’s The Cat Sitter’s Whiskers) the Siesta Key Fla. pet sitter and former deputy sheriff stops by the house of vacationing Caroline Greaver who has left a cat and a rabbit at home. Accompanying Dixie is Charlie a “fluffy faced Lhasa apso who thinks he’s a much bigger more athletic breed.” It’s Charlie who draws Dixie’s attention to a dead body lying in Caroline’s front hall. The detectives who subsequently investigate find a note on the body: “See you in hell Dixie.” Despite the threat Dixie maintains her normal schedule including meeting the island’s so called scarlet woman Elba Kramer who wants Dixie to care for her rare bird. A second body and a second note with a chilling message indicate Dixie is next. A near miss for Dixie sends her on the run. The surprise closing twist promises romantic complications for Dixie in the next installment. Agent: Al Zuckerman Writers House. (Dec.) " Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
