A little darker than some of the others in this series but still worth reading, I can sense John Clement's growing presence as co-author. Another fun, well-written cozy mystery. ( )

While checking in on one of her charges, a Maine Coon cat named Barney Feldman, Dixie Hemingway is knocked unconscious. While coming out of the fog, she certain she sees an open window and burning candles. Trouble is, the cops who respond don’t see any evidence of what Dixie says she saw.

Earlier that morning, Dixie had seen the LeSabre belonging to an old high-school friend on his paper-delivery route. At breakfast in her favorite diner, she learns that his customers didn’t get their newspapers. Curious, she stops at Levi Radcliff’s house to check on him. Met at the door by Levi’s overly jealous lady friend, the two women come upon a gruesome scene inside the house. Soon, Dixie is thrown into the middle of another murder investigation.

This is the eighth book in this top-notch series, started by the late Blaize Clement and carried on by her son John from her notes and their conversations. Dixie is a wonderful heroine, a former cop who lost her husband and toddler daughter in a tragic car accident. The plots in all of the books are pleasantly complex, and The Cat Sitter’s Whiskers is a fun and engaging read.

The Cat Sitter's Whiskers is a delightful installment to the Dixie Hemingway series! Once I started reading this story, it was hard to put the book down (In this case, close my laptop).

Dixie is a no nonsense protagonist. She's strong and sassy, and certainly someone that doesn't let much stop her once she's put her mind to something. And when her mind (well, skull) gets whacked while cat sitting, she is determined to discover who did it and why.

Congratulations John on book 10! Here's to more Dixie Hemingway and more John Clement! ( )

The Cat Sitter’s Whiskers by Blaize Clements and John Clements is the tenth book in the Dixie Hemingway Mysteries series. Dixie Hemingway is a pet sitter living in Siesta Key, Florida (near Sarasota). She will take care of all varieties of pets except snakes (and I do not blame her one bit)! Dixie (no relations to the author Ernest Hemingway) used to be an officer with the Sarasota Sheriff’s Department until the death of her husband, Todd and daughter, Christy.

Dixie is up early to head over to the Keller’s house. She rarely encounters other people at 5:00 a.m., but this morning she sees the car of paper carrier, Levi Radcliff. She stops to see if Levi is having car trouble, and the car takes off. Dixie continues on to the Keller’s who are on vacation to take care of Barney Feldman, their cat. Dixie is almost finished when she is attacked by a strange statute. When Dixie contacts the police upon waking up, they do not believe her story. So Dixie figures it must have been a weird dream or hallucination and proceeds about her day (despite the giant bump on her head).

When Dixie discovers that many people did not get their paper that day, she decides to check on Levi. Dixie and Levi went to school together, but she has not had much contact with him since high school. When Dixie arrives at Levi’s home, he is dead in a pool of blood. Who would want to kill Levi? Dixie sets out to solve the murder along with handling some relationship issues with her boyfriend (do not use this word around Dixie), Ethan.

Even though this is the tenth book in the series, it can easily be read without having read any of the other books in the series. I give The Cat Sitter's Whiskers 4 out of 5 stars. It is a cute story (with humor, romance, and mystery) but the whodunit is a cinch to solve.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

"Pet sitter Dixie Hemingway is on the prowl again in the newest installment of Blaize Clement's classic and beloved series of cozy mysteries, now written by her son, John Clement, using Blaize's notes and ideas for future adventures. Set in the sleepy beach-side town of Siesta Key, Florida, THE CAT SITTER'S WHISKERS catches up with Dixie as she heads off for work one morning in the dimly lit hours before sunrise. Her very first client of the morning is Barney Feldman, a Maine coon cat with a reputation for mischief who's guarding his vacationing owner's valuable collection of decidedly creepy antique masks. But someone's hiding in the house when she arrives, and they sneak up and knock her out cold. When the cops arrive at the house, there's just one problem: no one has broken in and nothing is missing. Searching for answers, Dixie soon finds herself hopelessly trapped in a murky world of black market antiques, dark-hearted secrets, and murderous revenge... a mystery only she can solve. "--… (more)
