Much better than I thought it would be - I thought it would be a fluffy little light read, but there was a lot more to it than that - characters were well-drawn and interesting, lots of action and tidbits about animals.

This looks like her first book. Great characters, good story well told. As a cat lover and former pet sitter, I really got into this one. Not quite a thriller, but not quite a cozy read either. I hated to put it down. If you like animals, you will probably like this.

The Publishers Weekly blurb on the back called it a cozy. I would definitely NOT call it a cozy.

I really like the book. Kept me guessing along with Dixie. I gave it FOUR stars and look forward to reading more in the series. (when my current TBR shrinks a bit)

This book is about a pet sitter who has lost her family (husband and young daughter) to a tragic accident. She lives close by her brother and his partner. The story is about a murder that she discovers in one of her client's homes and her trying not to get too involved, but of course, she used to be in the sheriff's department, so she ends up getting involved after all. A main character is a young gay man who she befriends and tries to help save from his conservative parents. It is a gay friendly read. There are also explicit descriptions of sexual photographs she finds in the course of her search for the killer. This is something I would have liked to have known before I ordered this book.

The first book in a new cozy series (at least new for me), Dixie Hemmingway is an ex-deputy who lost her husband and daughter in an accident, and now has a pet-sitting business. Trouble starts when she finds a dead body at one of her clients' homes. While I found the twists and turns confusing at times, this is a good solid mystery. One victim's Jekyll-and-Hyde personality kept throwing me off but was still plausible, and the resolution was satisfying. Characters were pretty well rounded, even the animal ones. I would be interested to read the second book, but not sure yet if this is a keeper series for me.

Solid writing and a good story line made this book a pleasure to read overall. Look forward to reading more of the series. Four stars is about right.
